Discover life crawling underneath the barren red dunes of Namib Desert. Stretching along the Atlantic coast, the desert features a vast clay pan, referred to in local language as the "place of no return," and black dead trees scorched by the sun, which are more than 900 years old.

As you stand on a steep dune slope looking over the seemingly barren desert, you might feel like the only living creature on this arid land.
