Home to the most beautiful dunes in the world! Seriously, they are amazing. Sossusvlei is one of those underrated hidden gems. Everyone always talks about the Sahara Desert but the Namib Desert always gets a bit neglected. Well trust me, it is worth it.
As you can see, incredible views, endless sand and of course, killer heat. Going to Namibia in winter really does make a difference but it is still boiling here.
Since it is Namibia, the desert really is nowhere near any towns. There are however many lodges where you can stay who do organised trips to the dunes. I would really recommend it as it takes the stress off of driving and having to get over mini dunes in a car [which is not fun].
This is a place that needs to be on your Namibia to do list!
– and it is only a complete trip if you hike all the way to the top of the Big Daddy Dune
