Wonders of the World


Namib Desert, Namibia

Desolate and arid yet beguilingly beautiful, the Namib Desert is one of the most dramatic landscapes on the planet. It's also the oldest desert in the world, developed over millions of years from sand blown in from the Atlantic Ocean. Namibia's desert is far more than its sandy landscape however, with an astonishing amount of colors and inhabitants (including, ostrich, zebra, giraffe and antelope). Sossusvlei, set within the Namib-Naukluft National Park, is famed for its vivid red and orange sand dunes and white sand pans. The 278 foot (85m) Dune 45 is one of its prettiest sights, with breathtaking views at its sandy peak.
