This particularly inhospitable, barren section of Namibia is called the Lunar Landscape, and I think you can see why.
I set out on a gloomy day, from Swakopmund, Namibia, to check out the Welwitschia Drive. I knew I wouldn’t be able to do the whole drive in the time I had but I figured I’d get to see some interesting landscapes. Everything was bleak, barren and nondescript until I passed a sign stating I was nearing the Lunar Landscape. Then, I saw this stretching out in front of me. It was an amazing shock. I’d love to go back and spend some time wandering around in this area.
