Namibia info

Namibia is an intriguing country of vast spaces lying on the southwestern coast of Africa overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. It is a photographers dream, a land of immense desert landscapes from terracotta red sand dunes up to 300 metres high, to the endless stretch of the Skeleton Coast, home to innumerable shipwrecks. This lies alongside the hostile Namib Desert, the oldest desert on earth with its own unique flora and fauna. It offers unparalleled stargazing with 360 degree vistas. The Fish River canyon is gouged out of the earth in the south while diamonds spill out onto the coast at the mouth of the Orange River on the border. Up north, the land near the mighty Kunene River is home to the Himba tribe who still continue their traditional lifestyle. Etosha Pan is a national park teeming with wildlife that lies in central Namibia, while further east is the vast Kalahari Desert, home to the last remaining San Bushmen. When all the heat and sand becomes too much, holidaymakers flock to the beach resort of Swakopmund.
