Namib Desert - Namibia

Covering 81,000 sq km, the Namib is a coastal desert in south west Africa, stretching between Angola, ,Namibia and South Africa. In the local Nama language, Namib means “open space”. The desert is almost totally barren, receiving less than 1cm of rain annually. Instead, Fogs that blow in from the ocean in the early morning are the main source of moisture for the local animals and plant species. 

In the southern parts of the desert, Sand dunes that range in colour from pink to orange can rise as high as 300m. The desert is a rich source of diamonds and salt. 


Loving my body, loving every essence of my blackness, my bigness,and my melanin. This day, I was so liberated and conjured light and presence with all the magnificent black souls present @afropunk, so grateful for @aggienes documenting this journey of self-love IG:blackearthling ❤️✨
