Sossusvlei is situated on the south of the Namib Desert (Namibia), it is a salty clay pan encircled by red sand dunes.
Sossusvlei’s Dunes are among the highest dunes on earth.
There are some other Clay pans next to Sossusvlei like Deadvlei which are more famous but are mistaknly refered as part of Sossusvlei. Deadvlei offers amazing sights due to the strong colors:
Red (the dunes themselves), White (clay pan), Blue (sky, which are usually clear) and Black (the dead trees) making this place breathtaking. There used to be a river flowing near which provided water to the Acacia trees, which are now all dead.
