Sossusvlei is a salt and clay pan surrounded by high red dunes. The name "Sossusvlei" means "dead-end marsh". Vlei is the Afrikaans word for "marsh", while "sossus" is Nama for "dead end". Sossusvlei owes this name to the fact that it is an endorheic drainage basin (i.e., a drainage basin without outflows)
for the ephemeral Tsauchab River. Yhis area is one of the most photographed areas in the world!
Don't miss the Sesriem Canyon on your way to Sossuvlei.
