Namibia

Namibia is hauntingly beautiful, yet harsh and untamed.  Its violent extremes and stunning open landscapes linger in the memory.

Game is good in Etosha National Park but that misses the real beauty of Namibia. Its open spaces free the spirit, while the battle of people and animals to survive in the desert region fires the imagination.

Highlights include the wild Skeleton Coast, the majestic Sossusvlei Dunes, the remote wilderness areas of Kaokoland and Damaraland. Namibia is home to the elusive desert elephant and has a rising population of both black and white rhino.
