there are several places in Africa renowned for their spectacular sand dunes and I'm sure some of you have captured them on camera. So show us.

 

Here are a couple from Morocco to get the ball rolling

Beautiful pictures. I was in Morocco in March on a family trip but unfortunately could not get to the desert which requires a three day minimum time commitment just due to road travel logistics. They really need bush planes in Morocco. Fascinating country overall!

Stunning pics. Often think of heading to Morocco: this topic is also screaming out for some Namibian landscapes as well...

Nice - love these wavey duneshapes.

Here's a different kind of dune - from the Kgalagadi (Kalahari), and with a lion in front of it :)

I know there's been a lot of sand dune images within recent Namibia trip reports, so let's see some of them in this topic...
