Orange sand dunes and rocky mountains at Namib Naukluft National Park

Namib Naukluft National Park

About Namib Naukluft National Park

Coming in at over 19,000 square miles, the Namib Naukluft National Park is one of the largest conservation areas in the world. It is divided in to four main sections: the Sesriem and Sossusvlei area, Sandwich Harbour, Namib and Naukluft and has an impressively varied landscape. Gigantic orange dunes ripple and roll away into the distance while the rocky, craggy Naukluft mountains rise up to staggering heights. Due to millions of years of rain, ravines or "kloofs" cut through the sides of the cliffs, many of which contain small, winding waterways and an array of different plants.
