For a completely unique African safari experience, visit the Namib Sand Sea, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in northern Namibia. The area is the only coastal desert in the world that includes dune fields influenced by fog. It's a magical place where the sand changes from white, to tan, to a burnt sienna color and the dunes can reach as high as 1,000 feet. Explore this giant sand box by jeep, hot air balloon, sandboard, or even on x-c skis.
