Campsite is not the prettiest due to dust and parking lot feel but the surrounding area is breathtaking! Pool is a good plus!

We had a great time in Sossusvlei and only got stuck once. The views are unforgettable. The drive can be hard, but it is part of the adventure

This is a must see. You feel like you are in outer space. There is an eerie feeling but beautiful as well. We really enjoyed our visit and would go again.

Be sure to carry water, sunscreen and a hat, even in the mornings it gets really hot. Although it's a popular spot, you should not miss it. We loved the color spectacle of the dunes.

When you are in the Namib, Deadvlei will definitely be your favorite. It is so alien that evokes out of this world thoughts! Is it beauty or is it death? Mummified acacia trees stood still in the heat of the sun, drawing shadows that render...More

The distance from Windhoek and Swakopmund to Sossusvlei is very similar - about 5 hours. Swakopmund is worth a visit. Be sure to stop at Solitaire for the BEST apple crumble and coffee. Enjoy
