Located right in the southern part of the popular Namib Desert, Sossusvlei is a salt and clay pan surrounded by massive red sand dunes. These dunes, many of which measure taller than 200 meters, are considered to be among the tallest in the world.

The pan derives its name from the fact that it is an endorheic drainage basin (a drainage basin without outlets) for the seasonal Tsuchab River. Vlei is the Afrikaans word for “marsh” while sossus is a Nama word for “no return” or “dead end.”
