    Australia does boast some pretty hot deserts but Africa, being closer to the equator, contains some of the hottest deserts in the world. The Sahara is the king of deserts- it is huge, more than 3,000 miles across and nearly 1200 miles from top to bottom, and the hot (its highest temperature was measured in Libya in 1922: 136 degrees). Another of Africa’s great deserts is the Kalahari, which spans 360,000 miles. North America has some hot spots too in the Mojave, Death Valley (134 degrees at its hottest), and Great Basin.
