In the Southern part of the Namid Desert lies Sossusvlei, a dry salt lake surrounded by high sand dunes. The landscape is strikingly reddish-orange, due to high concentrations of iron and consequent oxidation processes. Fauna ranges from beetles, rodents and springboks to ostriches and even desert elephants. The most noticeable flora include Acacia trees and shrub-like plants.
