Sossusvlei and Deadvlei in Namibia
Another astonishing and surrealistic natural wonder is Sossuvlei in Namibia. It covers a larger part of the Namibia Desert and there are some of the highest sand dunes in the world. Starting from an entrance of the national park to the location of Deadvlei and Sossusvlei, the dunes are reaching the distance of about 70 kilometers. The dunes get their red-orange color from the great amounts of iron in the sand, and during the sunset and sunrise the glow of the sun changes the colors of dunes turning them into a jaw-dropping scenery. Among the dunes, in the marsh where the water flows from the mountains, you can see various species of small wildlife like springbok and gemsbok ostriches, as well as acacia trees and bushes that can grow in the dry desert area.
