Waw an Namus is a volcanic field, cone and caldera in the southern region of Libya, in the near-geographic center of the Sahara Desert. The inside of the caldera houses rich foliage and three small salt lakes of variable color which are the reason for the volcano's name.

Its vast size allows it to be easily seen from space. Waw an Namus is an increasingly popular local tourist attraction.
