: Namib Desert in Namibia may not be as large as the Sahara but it is probably the world’s oldest desert. The desert stretches along the coastline of Namibia for more than 2,000 km (1,000 mi) in the Southwest of Africa. The massive sand dunes that are seen in the desert are a consequence of the strong winds that blow from the Atlantic Ocean.
Nowadays hot air balloons carry visitors into this remote desert to experience the magnitude and splendor of the landscape, its evershifting shapes and colors. Some of the major tourist attractions are Sossusvlei, a salt and clay plan surrounded by large dunes, an area known as “Moon Landscape” for its likeness to the Moon’s surface, and the famous “Long Wall” which is a magnificent coastal area where one experiences how the ocean meets the desert.
Other wonders are the Welwitschia plant which is considered to be a living fossil and the thick morning fog that rolls in from the Atlantic. Undoubtedly Namib Desert is one the natural wonders of the world. Now experience it for your own:
