Rail Away

The Wild Horses of the Namib Desert inhabit an area near the town of Aus in the south western region of Namibia. These very adjustable horses have managed to survive for over 100 years in the heat of the Namib Desert where there is (almost) no shade and temperatures reach 45 degrees Celsius. The only shade they can find is next to an abandoned German train station.
