A beautiful land full of striking scenery and
plentiful wildlife, Namibia is still a developing
nation as far as tourism is concerned, but
with huge natural resources to back it up.
The coastline runs along the South Atlantic,
and includes the infamous Skeleton Coast.
It’s where the desert sweeps down to meet
the sea in a rocky shoreline interlaced with
enticing sandy coves.
It’s often shrouded in
mist, and sailors for centuries have come to
grief here, giving it a feared reputation as a
ship destroyer. It’s a legend borne in truth,
as the rusting shipwrecks along this coast
would seem to prove.
Inland there are vast national parks, with
roaming wildlife including zebra’s, springbok,
eland’s, sables, and white rhino’s, amongst
others. The vast deserts can be dangerous
for the unwary, but also provide a magical
experience on a guided trip.
For something different, if a little strenuous
in the searing heat, try a trek through one
of the world’s largest canyons, and along
the mighty Fish River. Its stretches for 100
miles, and at the highest point the sides are
over 500m high.
It’s hard to imagine a more perfect country
for the nature lover, photographer, modern
adventurer, or ambitious tourist.
