Have you ever experienced the red, rusty-coloured deserts and dunes of Namibia? Or how about the desert-adapted elephants (the only place in the world where elephants have adapted to survive in such dry, isolated conditions)?
Don't you find it fascinating that there's a petrified forest that dates back to millions of years ago, or that you can visit a town located in the desert but also has a beach?
Have you seen the captivating photographs of the Himba tribe, who cover their hair and skin with red clay to protect themselves from the sun? Don't you just yearn to see all of this with your own eyes?
