Permit to drive to Sossusvlei

Hi all we are planning a self drive trip to South Africa & Southern Namibia, renting an X-trail in Johannesburg. Anyhow on the map I have of Namibia it states You need a permit to drive on the road to Sossusviei, does anyone know where I can get this permit or even if it is required, thanks... Frank

Hi Frank.Don't think you need a permit if you stay on the main roads,C14/C25.

It refers to driving off onto other gravel roads in the Namib-Naukluft Park.

You'll know when you're in the wrong place when they shoot your tyres out.:-)They do that to you Aussies....

It's a wonderful country.

Sossussvlei is in a national park. You get the permit to drive there (about 60km) when you pay your park entrance fee at the gate.
