According to one journalist, you could find that the country is more diverse than you imagine, with desert, bushland and a rugged coastline all waiting to be discovered.
Simon Horsford wrote in the Daily Telegraph that Namibia "is one of Africa's most thrilling countries".
That's a pretty good endorsement and I started wondering what there is to see and do in the country.
Mr Horsford quickly pointed out that there is much more to Namibia than its desert - although this is a stunning landscape to explore, especially from the back of a Land Rover.
If you're looking for something really different you should visit Swakopmund, which the travel writer described as "a German fairy-tale town".
It all stems back to a time when Namibia was a German colony and although it has been almost 100 years since the Germans relinquished control of the country, you'll be able to see their influence here.
And if you're heading to Africa in search of exotic animals then don't worry - you'll be able to spot creatures such as leopard, cheetah, desert elephants and black rhino.
There are a host of different nature reserves all over the country, boasting landscapes as varied as forests, wetlands, mountains and - of course - desert.
