Sesriem

About the area

Sesriem is a small desert settlement near the southern reaches of the Naukluft Mountains. The outpost situated in the heart of the Namib Desert is a great access point for visitors to explore the Namib-Naukluft National Park. However, Sesriem is most famous for its exquisite and unique canyon. The Tsauchab River has shaped the Sesriem Canyon over a period of millions of years and it is one of the few places in the area that holds water all year round. Sesriem is a great place to stay awhile and explore the surroundings, or to pitstop and grab the essentials.
