Sossusvlei is located in the largest nature reserve in Africa (the Namib-Naukluft National Park) and is probably the most spectacular and well-known attraction of our country. Sossusvlei is a beige salt-clay pan surrounded by large sand dunes that only carries water during years of rain. Only then it becomes a lake a few centimetres to several meters deep in the Vlei at the end of the Tsauchab River for a short time each year. The Tsauchab River is located in western Namibia and has its source on the south side of the Naukluft Mountains. Overall, the area around Sossusvlei is a challenge for every photographer. With a height of 400 meters, the dunes are the highest in the world. Especially nice to watch in the evening or at dawn.
The area is a small clay pan in the Namib Sand Sea, surrounded by dunes. It is part of the Namib-Naukluft National Park. It is characterized by dark, dead camel thorn trees that stand out particularly nicely from the white bottom of the pan. The pan was created by a flood from the Tsauchab River. About 900 years ago camel thorn trees grew through the water. A change in the climate pushed the dunes into the area and the trees no longer had a chance of survival. Due to the dry climate, the tree remains have remained and offer a little paradise for every amateur photographer. The contrast with the white desert pan and the pitch-black tree remains, as well as the rust-red dunes are a special photo motif next to the blue sky.
Sandwich Harbor is about 35 miles south of Walvis Bay in Dorob National Park. It is a most dramatic sight. The relatively small dunes with a height of up to 100 m dive into the Atlantic Ocean, which flows into a picturesque lagoon. The port area is deserted and no longer inhabited by people. A moving wilderness with many photo motifs are further highlights of this helicopter excursion.
