The Namib Desert stretches about 1300km from the Angolan border to the northern edge of South Africa alongside of the Atlantic coast. It is considered as the world oldest desert formed around 80 million years ago. The sands transported from the Kalahari Desert are spread by the flow of the ocean and also by the west wind. The southern part of the Namib Desert is listed as the World Heritage site “Namib Sand Sea” in 2013.

The annual rain fall is from 2mm to 200mm depending on the area. Though the rain fall is extremely low, sufficient water is supplied by the fog rising in the coast. Thanks to the fog, there are various living organisms.
