Namib Desert, Namibia
While we’re on the subject of deserts, let’s mention the Namib Desert. This is a coastal desert, so it literally goes along the coast of Africa and is pretty much always in touch with the ocean. But more impressively, in the Namib Desert you’ll be able to see the Welwitschia. It’s often called “the living fossil”. It’s a very impressive plant, that can survive in the desert and can only be found in this area and nowhere else in the world.
