Sossusvlei is one of the most astonishing sites in the Namib-Naukluft Park in Namibia’s Namib Desert. Here, huge towering dunes rise dramatically above the surrounding plains.
The spectacle of changing colours and the lonely oryx silhouetted against red dunes is one which visitors and photographers from around the world come to savour and capture on film.
Although this is not a game rich area, the wildlife to be found is interesting and often unique, having adapted itself to the harsh environment. Among the larger animals to be found are the springbok, gemsbok (oryx), ostrich and wild horses. The rare and elusive aardvark is occasionally sighted at night, along with Cape fox, polecats, aardwolf and other nocturnal animals.
