Summary Covering one third of the African continent, the Sahara Desert can be one of the most unforgiving environments on Earth. With shifting sand dunes, heat-induced mirages, and salt water oases, a thirsty traveler could easily become disoriented. It may appear to be devoid of all life, but the world's hottest desert is home to Earth's most breathtaking moments.
