Sossusvlei, Namib desert, Namibia
The intense orange of the dunes set against the salt and clay pans makes for a surreal desert landscape that has made Sossusvlei the most photographed place in Namibia. Watch the sunrise on a hot air balloon over this landscape or go on a guided walk to see the flora and fauna. If all the pampering at the luxury desert lodges isn’t enough, there’s more: This is one of the best places in the world to stargaze.
