the world's most spectacular roads

 

Sossusvlei is possibly Namibia’s most spectacular and best-known attraction. Located in the Namib-Naukluft National Park, in the southern part of the Namib Desert, is a large, white, salt and clay pan and is a great destination all year round.

The road is asphalted, but the last 5 kilometers of the 65 kilometer drive are tarred. The sand dunes of Sossusvlei in the Namib Desert are often referred to as the highest dunes in the world, reaching almost 400 meters.

 

The road is totally straight and a paradise for photographers. Although the roads in the area are renowned for their high accident rate, possibly the highest in Namibia, they are traversable with a normal sedan vehicle (two wheel drive). Don't get lost while wandering in the desert. And remember to drink plenty of water (as you should be doing throughout your time in Namibia, as it is a very dry country).
