Saddled between the Namib and the Kalahari, two of the world’s great deserts, Namibia is a land of wide open spaces and endless vistas. The driest country south of the Sahara is also the most scenic and most contrasting.
With shifting dunes, archaic drawings, raging canyons and mountains, an eerie coastline named after the skeletons and ship wrecks that loom here, it is a country for those still seeking the most unique and spectacular landscapes and experiences. With an area covering more than 820 000km², it is one of Africa’s largest countries but with a population of just over 2 million it is the 2nd least densely populated country on earth presenting areas of great expanse without the sight of human impact.
It is Namibia’s rich geological formations more than anything else that sets it apart but of course any safari to Africa is not complete without wildlife. Of this the country has plenty too. The Big Five can be found along with a great variety of mammal and bird species but even more fascinating is the adaptation of these species in Namibia.
Namibia’s desert lions, desert adapted elephants and black Rhinos are not to be found anywhere else on earth having adapted over millennia to survive in this rugged land.
