Namibia Travel Guide
Exposed to the mercy of the elements, Namibia’s landscapes are not what you expect to find in Africa. Deserts, tortured rock, open plains and a bleak and eerie coastline that for much of the year is bathed in thick fog. The country is dominated by the brooding Namib Desert, where the world’s highest sand dunes march determinedly towards the sea in a dune field 300 km wide. The Skeleton Coast, Fish River Canyon, Damaraland, Kaokoland and the diamond-producing Sperrgebiet, too, are vast expanses of silent, unspoilt wilderness.
But, despite these hostile environments, Namibia is home to a wealth of African animals and birds - easily seen at Etosha’s magical waterholes or at one of the many game farms. With this Namibia travel guide, you can read about the last place on earth that black rhino roam free. It is also the only home of the desert elephant and 25% of the world’s cheetah stalk the arid plains. It’s also a destination that’s about adventure; whether you drive, hike or bike, the opportunities to enjoy the wild beauty of this empty, ancient land are almost limitless.
