The Sossusvlei region of the Namib Desert is an almost mystical precinct. The vast red dune sea expanse is spectacular and impossible to appreciate until standing at the foot of one of the World's tallest dunes. Seemingly devoid of life, it is hard to believe that this desert occasionally receives heavy rainfall and sometimes even floods. Despite the apparent harshness, numerous desert-adapted creatures and animals are living here, the largest of which is the stately oryx antelope. Temperatures reach as high as 122 degrees Fahrenheit. It is highly advisable to head out as early as possible. Dunes can be accessed from several points, but the well-known sites of Dead Vlei and Sesriem are located within the regulated area and are government-managed. There are accommodations of various standards both in and outside the preserve boundaries. African Sky offers guided and fly-in tours to Sossusvlei and, with a wealth of experience, is abundantly qualified to advise and arrange your visit.
