The Elim Dune: the most popular motif for many photo calendars
One of the most photographed dunes is the Elim Dune. It is the farthest inland dune in Sossusvlei and visitors can reach the dune by taking a short detour on their way from Sesriem to Sossusvlei.
The dune is covered with a few tufts of grass and fairly easy to climb. It was named after the farm that was once located here before it was integrated with the nature park during its establishment. The dune is especially beautiful during sun rise and sun set when the light gently cascades over the dune.
