Elim Dune is located just outside Sesriem, Namibia. It is the nearest dune to Sesriem and the first in a series of gigantic dunes. Atop Elim Dune, the colours at sunset are vivid and constantly changing, providing a strong contrast between the surrounding blue Naukluft Mountains on the east and the red dunes to the west. The dune is a hundred meters in height, and visitors can climb it from a parking spot beside it in more or less an hour.
