“No joke, you will need at least 2 liters of water for just a couple hours walking out here. It may be a national park, but this isn't Joshua Tree. Be prepared!” - Churchmanb

As Big as You Need It to Be

This park is scale-able.
If you only have time for Sossusvlei, boo hoo. Step into this Dalian landscape and bring a lot of water and sun protection.
Take a few hours to tramp along the crests of the massive dunes, and although Sossusvlei is the main attraction here, be sure to wander out into Deadvlei. Many believe it to be far superior in beauty to Sossusvlei, myself being amongst them.
Your friends will think the pictures are fake.
If you have a bit more time and want to dig in, there are epic (and therefore pricey) 4x4 journeys along the edge of the desert and the ocean. Not for the faint of heart.
This is the oldest desert in the world, and the largest game park in Africa. It is nothing short of spectacular, and although the game won't be what you will see elsewhere, the landscapes are matched in very few places on Earth.
