Sossusvlei is undoubtedly most famous for pictures of its soaring red dunes, their vibrant colours bursting into life as the sun rises behind them. You’ll have to rise early to catch the dawn but every minute of lost sleep is worth it.


Sossusvlei is the most accessible part of a 300km-long, 150km-wide sand desert and the best way to get a feel for the sheer size of the expanse is to climb one of the dunes – then run down again.
