The Sossusvlei region is a part of a larger, homogeneous southern Namib area (approximately 32.000 km2) that stretches between the Koichab and Kuiseb rivers. This region is distinguished by tall, brilliant pink-to-orange sand dunes, which are a result of oxidation processes brought on by the presence of a lot of iron in the sand. Dunes with a stronger reddish tint are the oldest. These dunes are among the tallest in the world; many of them rise above 200 meters, with the tallest, Big Daddy, standing at roughly 325 meters. However, Dune 7, in the Namib Desert, is the tallest dune in the world.
