An incredible and imaginative desert landscape, the Namib Desert is one of the driest areas in the world and is still largely untouched by humans. The wind deposits the sand everywhere and the contours of the dunes are constantly being redefined with ever-changing sharp lines, waves, ribs and holes.

The Namib Desert stretches the entire length of Namibia, with the Atlantic Ocean forming its western edge with a diverse range of habitats on the east. At roughly 2,000 kilometres in length, the Namib is an incredible feat of nature. With thousands of shipwrecks scattering the coast and sand dunes that are sometimes 300 meters high, this is a truly unique location. The topography varies across the length of Namibia, from sand seas and clay pans, to regions of thick fog and lunar landscapes.
