Sossusvlei or Deadvlei is one of the most photogenic landscapes on earth and lies on the West coast of Africa where the mountains meet the sands of the Namib Desert.
The Greater Tsaucheb Dune Valley is part of the Namib Naukluft National Park. The area within the park that is so world famous is the valley that the Tsaucheb River has cut through the towering dunes on its journey to the Atlantic. The river was blocked off from the ocean a long time ago and the result is a wetland in one of the driest places on earth.
