Namibia

Although it is the oldest desert in the world it is far from being lifeless and barren. The long costal desert features an unusual variety of desert-adapted fauna and flora, which includes a large number of endemic plants, reptiles, insects, and bird species. Main tourist attractions like the Sossusvlei, Sandwich Harbour and Skeleton Coast Park are within the Namib Desert.
