The stunning red sand dunes of Sossusvlei in the Namib Desert are one of the most spectacular sights in Namibia. They are part of a World Heritage Site, the Namib Sand Sea. These towering sand dunes are just one excellent reason to visit the country. However, the name 'Sossusvlei' applies in reality to the pan that lies at the place where the dunes close in, a natural dam which prevents the waters of the Tsauchab River from flowing any further on the rare occasions the river does flow this far. However, the name 'Sossusvlei' nowadays applies to the whole area, dunes and river alike. The best time to view Sossusvlei is close to sunrise and sunset. Strong colours constantly change, allowing for wonderful photographic opportunities.
