More On Namibia

With its un-spoilt landscapes and large variety of game, Namibia is one of the larger countries in Africa, and draws an increasing number of visitors from various parts of the globe.

A sense of freedom is generated by the wide horizons, the clear unpolluted skies and a population density, which is among the lowest in the world. In addition, the diversity of its people creates a rich blend of cultures and traditions.

Namibia is known for its wide range of landscapes. There is the brooding desolate Namib Desert, the oldest in the world, with its high dunes and awe-inspiring sense of space. The central plateau, with its thorn bush savanna and rugged mountains, rising abruptly from the plains, gives way to the majestic Fish River Canyon in the South. In the North of the country, landscapes range from dense bush and open plains of the great Etosha pan, to woodland savanna and lush riverine vegetation.

Dinosaur footprints preserved in the sandstone, pre-historic rock art, and the ancient fossil plant, Welwitschia mirabilis, bear witness to the aeons past in this - 'the ageless land'.

All these facts combined in one country, which can justifiably be known as 'Africa's Gem'.

Namibia's Climate

The whole country enjoys a minimum of 300 days of sunshine a year, but temperatures and rainfall vary considerably both seasonally and geographically. Summer is from November till March.
