Image shot on our way to hike the Naukluft. Dead Vlei is surrounded by the highest sand dunes in the world, some reaching up to 300 meters. The clay pan was formed after rainfall, when the Tsauchab river flooded, creating temporary shallow pools where the abundance of water allowed camel thorn trees to grow. When the climate changed, drought hit the area, and sand dunes encroached on the pan, which blocked the river from the area. The trees died, as there no longer was enough water to survive.
