The major rivers of the Namib Naukluft Park were surveyd to determine the degree of infestation of alien invasive plants. The Swakop and Kuiseb Rivers had the densest infestations, the Tsondab and Tsauchab Rivers had less dense infestations, while no alien plants were found in the Awasib and Koichab Rivers. Datura innoxia and Nicotiana glauco were the most abundant alien plant species.
