The name “Sossusvlei” is often used in an extended meaning to refer to the surrounding area (including other neighbouring vleis such as Deadvlei and other high dunes), which is one of the major visitor attractions of Namibia.

The sand dunes of Sossusvlei in the Namib Desert are often referred to as the highest dunes in the world.
