Sossusvlei & The Namib

The Kiuseb River ValleyThe Kiuseb River ValleyThe Kuiseb River and Gobabeb: A dry river bed with underground water which is part of the water resource for the coastal towns and the Rössing Urananium Mine restrains the sand dunes towards the south, being their natural border. The Hottentots "Topnaars" live here. The Desert Ecological Research Unit (DERU) was founded in 1959 and provides scientists with a unique natural laboratory at Gobabeb.

Tsondabvlei is the only known breeding area of the Lappet Faced Vulture in southern Namibia, and prohibited for visitors.

Dunes in SossusvleiSossusvleiSossusvlei: No part of the desert is visually more stunning than Sossusvlei, with it's monumentally high dunes (up to 325m high). The warm tints of the sand, form pale apricot to brick orange and deep red, vividly contrasting with the large white clay pans at some of their bases and the shadows of their sinuous crests continually change as the day progresses.

The Diamond Camps: Today it seems incomprehensible to what length people went in order to mine these sparkling gemstones. The three diamond camps bear witness to these activities which started in 1903. Captains possibly mistook fires of the former diamond mines for navigation fires, and stranded.
