      Dune 45, Namibia. ADune 45 in Sossusvlei is one of the most beautiful sand dunes in the world. Standing over 170 meters, it is composed of 5 million year old sand that was brought by the Orange River from the Kalahari Desert. It is a star dune. Star dunes are pyramidal sand mounds with slipfaces on three or more arms that radiate from the high center of the mound. They tend to accumulate in areas with multidirectional wind regimes. Star dunes grow upward rather than laterally.

    A yardang in the Algerian desert. A feature caused by wind erosion. The ‘pedestal’ effect is created by wind-blown sand whose cutting force is strongest near ground level.

    Baobab is the common name of a genus (Adansonia) containing eight species of trees, native to Madagascar, mainland Africa and Australia. Also known as the Bottle Tree, not only do they look like bottles, but the trees typically store around 300 liters of water! They often live over 500 years.
