Visiting Africa. Where to go?

I plan a trip to Africa. 2-3 weeks long.

For me it will be the first time, and I'm a bit afraid that I will see nothing but desert.

Right now my travelmate wants to go to Namibia, and travel around with a group of 6 people in two 4x4. A guided round trip with locals. Staying in tents in the middle of the nature most of the time.

My question: Is Namibia a good destination for a hobby photographer, or do you think that there are better areas for a first (and maybe only) visit to Africa? Some other things you just have to have seen.

Thanks a lot,
