What people are saying:

500 kilometers away from the capital, Windhoek, there is a manor that looks like an alien planet. It is famous for the quiver tree and attracts countless travelers. Quiver tree is a kind of aloe vera that is unique to the arid and rainless desert climate in southern Africa. It usually grows alone on barren hillsides. Only a few areas will see small forests where multiple quiver trees gather. Therefore, the manor became southern Namibia. Visit and photograph important sights of the quiver tree in the area. The quiver tree is named because the Bushmen of the primitive society would cut down the branches of the quiver tree and hollow out the sponge tissue to make a quiver behind them. We entered the manor in the evening, watching the sunset and quietly waiting for the night to come. Waiting for the arrival of the starry sky...and the starry sky with the quiver tree as the background is one of the most beautiful in the world. The point is the starry sky here, one of the ten most beautiful starry sky in the world,
