One of the oldest and largest deserts, the Namib stretches inland from the Atlantic Ocean, covering large swathes of Namibia and parts of Angola and South Africa. This arid hotspot surprisingly supports a diverse number of plants and animals, some of which are found nowhere else in the world.
The Sossusvlei belongs to the southern Namib with about 32.000 km², between the rivers Koichab and Kuiseb. The dunes in the more red color are the oldest dunes in Sossusvlei. These dunes are supposed to be among the highest of all around the globe. The highest is "Big Daddy" with 380m.
