Dune 45 was named for its proximity to Sesriem gate before continuing to the entrance of Sossusvlei, a seemingly endless expanse of sand dunes. Sand that was carried to the west coast by the Orange River is blown back again inland by winds and formed the dunes of the Namib Desert. The Namib, a minimum of 55 million years old, is regarded as the oldest desert in the world. The sand here has prominent levels of iron oxide. The prominent dunes are known as star and moving dunes.
