See the sands of the largest desert on the planet at Mauritania Sahara. Covering one-fourth of African soil, the desert houses many different species of reptiles and arachnids alongside human communities. Learn about the lifestyle and struggles of people living in the desert today at the oasis or from occasional herders with their animals. Sunrise and sunset both offer their own takes of the sandy landscape; bring plenty of water and sun protection.
