One of the most visited sites in #Namibia, and you can easily see why.
Not to missed on your visit to #Namibia, yah, the #Desert is hot, hot, hot, but you still want to #DoIt
Remember to wear comfortable clothes and shoes, sunhat, sunscreen ets( the stuff you know)
Some advice, don’t pack this #activity into one day. There are soooooo much to #expierance and little #animals to spot. Do take some cold beer/water with, or enjoy at one of the surrounding establishments, ranging from the very high-end to backpackers and camping places.

Deadvlei is not 500 million years old? I think you mean 500 years.
The entire Namib Sand Sea is less than 5 million years old. Even the Tsondap Sandstone is only 20 million and the breakup of gondwana 130m.
Deadvlei still has dead trees, still standing. Even there, within a couple thousand years that will all be gone. In fact I’ve found bushmen pottery at Deadvlei.
Thank you Vernon, then the info site I used was wrong, but the more we get to know this beautiful country, the better.
I agree. There is a lot of poor info on Sossusvlei area, but it is a fascinating place to get to know properly and certainly one of the most beautiful spots in the country.
