Deadvlei, Sossusvlei, Namibia


In the heart of the Namib-Naukluft Park, surrounded by a sea of ever-changing dunes lies Sossusvlei – a place of awe-inspiring beauty and home to some pretty spectacular scenery.

Burnt orange dunes tower into the vast blue sky, some 300 metres above the desert floor. It’s hard not to be moved by this desolate wilderness.

Scenic air and hot air balloon flights, sunset game drives, hiking trips, horseback trails and more await; and for those with an added sense of adventure, climbing the dunes is an unforgettable experience.

Illona Cross

Born in a small South African town, I have always followed my passion for nature and discovery. After studying Nature Conservation in Pretoria, I was one of the first women to complete a very tough cadetship in the Natal Parks Board. It was here where I cut my teeth in African wildlife management.
