Namib Sand Sea
The Namib Sand Sea along the country's western coast is the only desert in the world that includes extensive dune fields influenced by fog. The desert covers an area of over 30,000 square kilometers.
The dunes are created by the transport of material carried thousands of kilometers from the hinterland by rivers, ocean currents, and wind. Fog is the primary source of water in this desert.
