People make the wrong translation on the name of this tourist spot. Many say it means “Dead Valley” but in reality, Deadvlei really means “Dead Marsh.” You can see the greatest sand dunes of Africa form here. They span over 300 to 500 meters high and it even has its own name. People call the dunes “Big Daddy” or “Crazy Dune.” The pan in it consists of dead trees that still stand and some of the vegetation has adapted to survive this hostile place. You’ll easily see the reason why this place can become a site to shoot films too.
