The Sahara is the largest desert in the world. It extends through ten countries in North Africa. It covers an area of 9.4 million square kilometers and is home to about 4 million inhabitants. You can visit it as a tourist, on camels.
It is significantly smaller than the Sahara. It spreads over 81 thousand square kilometers and is not inhabited. Some animals, such as rhinos and zebras, found a home in it. The Namib Desert is characterized by high sand dunes. They can grow up to 300 meters in height.

The Atacama stretches through Chile, Argentina, Peru and Bolivia. There are almost no plants and animals in it, except chinchillas and cacti.
