Dead Vlei

In Namibia, Dead Vlei of Namib-Naukluft Park is one of those places on earth that you have to see to believe it actually exists. The iconic white clay pan, dotted with 900-year-old petrified trees against the backdrop of red dunes, is one of the most iconic places to visit not only in Namibia but all of Africa. One would think there would be little in the way of wildlife out there, but desert safaris reveal oryx, ostrich, springbok, jackal, and aardwolf, a strange-looking cousin of the hyena.
