Home to some truly bizarre forms of life, much of the 80 – 250km-wide Namib Desert is situated within the Namib-Naukluft Park. This is one of the largest national parks in Africa. In fact, Namib means ‘vast’ in the Nama language.
It’s most famous for its incredibly high rust-red sand dunes, which have blown into peaks and razor sharp ridges by the wind.
