However, the Kalahari Desert, with its ancient red sand & sparse vegetation, is also a must-visit. The central plateau is divided between rugged mountain ranges and sand-filled valleys. Finally, Kavango and Caprivi are home to perennial rivers and woodland savannahs. Namibia is located on the southwest coast of Africa.
