Sossuvlei is a spectacular region of the Namib desert and one of the world’s most striking, well-preserved desert landscapes. The huge pan, or vlei, is surrounded by towering sand dunes as far as the eye can see, reputed to be the highest in the world.
Dune 45 is so called because it lies 45 km past Sesriem on the road to Sossusvlei. It is also known as “the most photographed dune in the world”; because of its unusually simple and fascinating shape, and its proximity to the road, that make it convenient for visitors to stop by and take pictures. It is 80 meters high and it is not very steep, so that it can easily be climbed.
