The only coastal desert in the world that includes extensive dune fields influenced by fog. Covering an area of over three million hectares and a buffer zone of 899,500 hectares, the site is composed of two dune systems, an ancient semi-consolidated one overlain by a younger active one. The site lies along the arid African coast of the South Atlantic, wholly within Namibia’s Namib-Naukluft Park.

We visited this site in 2008 – and went on probably the hottest walk I have ever done in my life! Eerie scenery around Sossusvlei.
