Namib-Naukluft National Park Tours

Namib-Naukluft National Park—one of the most photographed (and visited) destination in the entire country—straddles the Namib Desert, what’s considered by many to be the world’s oldest desert, and the Naukluft Mountain Range. Its bright orange dunes, ever-changing towers of sand, arid landscape and impressive collection of African wildlife make it a destination among travelers. And while dune boarding, sand-surfing and 4x4-riding prove popular activities for adrenaline junkies who venture to this part of the coast, it’s Sossusvlei that’s the real show stopper of the Namib-Naukluft. This well-known area of the park is home to some of the tallest dunes in the world, and a favorite activity among travelers is a sunrise or sunset drive and hike to this incredible natural wonder.

While iconic pictures juxtaposing dark shadows with sun-kissed sands are available in every town in the country, travelers agree nothing is more breathtaking than seeing the real thing. 

Practical Info

The Namib-Naukluft National Park is located in the Namib Desert off the C28 highway and is part of the Naukluft mountain range. The gate to Sossusvlei opens at 6 a.m., but it’s best to arrive earlier if you plan to catch sunrise, as long lines can make it easy to miss.
