Namib Naukluft Park is the largest game park in Africa covering approximately 40 000 sq. km and incorporating approximately four sections in the park: Sossusvlei and Sesriem, Naukluft, Namib section and Sandwich Harbour.
The Sesriem canyon was cut by the Tschaub river millions of years ago and is an excellent example of water erosion and sandstone conglomerate caves. About 3 km long and 30 metres deep, the canyon is now easily reachable on foot and well worth visiting.
The Sossusvlei forms one of Namibia's famous highlights - a huge clay pan, enclosed by giant sand dunes. Some of the sand dunes reach heights of 300 metres, the highest in the world. Only after a heavy rainfall, which is a rare event in this area, does the vlei fill with water. As the clay layers hardly allow any water infiltration, a turquoise lake will remain for quite some time. Animal sightings are superb when water is in abundance.
