When To Travel

The Best Time To Visit Sossusvlei is during the cooler months, which extend from April to October. This period offers pleasant temperatures for exploring the dunes and capturing their beauty in the soft, early morning and late afternoon light. The weather is dry, and rainfall is rare during this time.


  • Dune Climbing: Ascend the towering dunes surrounding Sossusvlei, including the famous Dune 45. Witness the mesmerizing interplay of light and shadow on the rippling sands as you climb to the summits for panoramic views.
  • Photography: Capture the ever-shifting colours and surreal landscapes of Sossusvlei with your camera. Sunrise and sunset are the best times to photograph the dunes, as the light paints them in rich, warm hues.
  • Deadvlei Exploration: Visit Deadvlei, a hauntingly beautiful white clay pan dotted with ancient camel thorn trees. The stark contrast of the white pan, dark trees, and red dunes makes for incredible photo opportunities.
  • Hot Air Balloon Rides: Soar above the desert on a hot air balloon ride for a unique perspective of the dunes and the vast desert expanse. Marvel at the tranquillity and silence of the desert from the air.
  • Nature Walks: Explore the desert’s smaller wonders on guided nature walks. Learn about the desert-adapted flora and fauna that call this arid environment home.
  • Stargazing: Experience some of the world’s clearest night skies on stargazing excursions. Gaze at the brilliance of the stars and constellations in this remote and unpolluted desert environment.
