by Erdem Kutukoglu Gold Star Critiquer/Gold Star Workshop Editor/Gold Note Writer [C:  W: 105 N: 604] (3931)

Located in Namibia, the Namib Naukluft park, the largest conservation area in Africa, the sand dunes of Sossusvlei are often referred to as the highest dunes in the world.

The best time to view Sossusvlei is close to sunrise and sunset; the colours are strong and constantly changing, allowing for good photographic opportunities. The midday heat is intense and best spent in the shade.
