Aurus is a mountain at the eastern border of the Diamond Restricted Area also called Sperrgebiet, in the southwestern part of Namibia. It reaches a height of 1,050 m. Its expansion is about 5 km × 4 km.
The bushes to be found in the mountains just survive because of the mist, which sometimes is formed above the cold Atlantic and then during daytime drifts far into the desert. The few camel thorn trees take their water from deep underground accumulations.
