The Sahara Desert
The Sahara Desert is located in Africa and covers parts of at least ten countries. It is the world's second largest desert. The climate is extremely hot and dry, so very few plants and animals can live here.
The landscape of the Sahara Desert has been shaped over time by the wind, which blows the sand around to form new structures. The landscape includes huge sand dunes, stone plateaus, gravel plains, and dry valleys.
