    The Namib is a gorgeous place. As its name implies, the Namib is very dry but it is surprisingly full of variety and life. I've often seen oryx, springbok, lizards, ostrich, other birds, and more.
    Soussusvlei National Park is one of the most stunning places you'll ever see. The landscape looks completely surreal. You have the chance to walk around the area and to climb one of the world's biggest sand dunes.
    A great place to get an introduction to the Namib is out of a seaside town called Swakopmund. Here you can take guided dune buggy trips, sandboarding adventures, scenic flights, even skydive over the Namib. There are lots of tour agencies there who can also help you arrange some kind of tour

    Stretching 1,200 miles along the Atlantic and covering roughly 10 million acres of desert and buffer zone, the otherworldly Namib Sand Sea is the oldest desert in the world and is almost completely uninhabited by humans. Dense fog—which can envelop the coastal areas for half the year—is the primary source of water and, combined with the sandstorms, makes this one of the world’s top storm-watching destinations. The animals that manage to live here need to adapt to ever-changing microhabitats.
