Some of the world’s tallest dunes can be found in the majestic Namib Desert (Western Namibia). Namibia’s Tourism Board claims the highest sand dune in the World is Dune 7, which rises up to 1,256 ft.

Possibly Namibia’s best-known attraction, Sossusvlei lies in the Southern part of the Namib desert. Things to do here include hiking dunes, visiting Sesriem Canyon, taking in the immense Namib Desert and its wildlife, and watching one of the best sunrises you’l ever see.

- Organised tour. Several organised tours depart Windhoek for Sossuvlei, taking away the hassle (and adventure) of getting there on your own. Here are some examples:
