Sossusvlei is a clay pan created by a river that flows through the Namib desert every 5 to 10 years. It is famous for the spectacular high, red sand dunes which surround it, part of a major sand sea. The river does not reach the Atlantic Ocean, but drains away between the dunes of Sossusvlei.
 
Vegetation, such as camelthorn trees, are watered by infrequent floods of the Tsauchab River, which slowly soak into the underlying clay. One local meaning of Sossus means 'place of no return' and the word vlei is an Afrikaans word for 'marsh.' Sossusvlei itself is in the small valley and is one of 4 clay pans in the area; the others being The Dead Vlei, Hidden Vlei and Nara Vlei.
