Follow in the footsteps of countless desert nomads by climbing the massive red dunes of Sossusvlei, located in the southern reaches of the Namib Desert. These dunes are among the most photographed places in all of Sub-Saharan Africa. Tour operators and travel agencies offer trips to Sossusvlei, including scenic flights over the dunes. The largest - Big Daddy - towers to a height of 380 meters (~1330 ft). It is possible to climb it, but be prepared for a struggle, as for every three steps forward, you're bound to slide one back in the soft sand. But if you reach the top, you're sure to be awarded unrivaled views!
