The Namib-Naukluft Park is one of the world’s largest conservation areas, stretching from the plateau of central Namibia to the vast basin of the Namib Desert. Wide-open spaces framed by purply-blue mountains and impossible sunsets make the Namib-Naukluft a place of singular beauty and peace. The only sound you’ll hear is the gentle breeze, and time seems to stand still as though the clock stopped (indeed, there are preserved dinosaur footprints dotted around the country).
Sosussvlei and Sesriem are the major highlights within the Namib Naukluft Park. Sossusvlei is characterised by the endless sea of rust-orange dunes, the bleached white pan (Deadvlei) and its knotted ancient trees. Whilst Sesriem is the gateway to the sweeping wilderness of the Namib Desert.
