The world-famous red dunes of Sossusvlei

Sossusvlei, Hardap Region, Namibia
6 Kudos
The Sossusvlei is at its best in the morning and in the evening at sunset and sunset. The light is then warm. This creates beautiful contrasts between the white of the clay and the red of the dunes. The sights are located in the Namib-Naukluft National Park. Before we entered, you had to pay an entrance fee. As a result, there was a traffic jam in front of the entrance in the morning before sunrise. We did not go too late and had breakfast in the car! Only the last five kilometers we had to take a 4wd shuttle to the Sossusvlei.
