Although not as well known as
some of its African neighbors,
Namibia is a gem for those in
search of wildlife and wilderness; see oryx, elephants and rhino
roam the country's numerous reserves, and explore this open
landscape of undulating dunes.
Essentially a desert country, Namibia offers contrasting
landscapes. The Namib Desert is a vast swathe of high dunes and
desolate plains with an awe-inspiring sense of space. The thorn
bush savannah and rugged mountains of the central plateau give
way to the majestic Fish River Canyon in the south.
In the north, landscapes range from the dense bush and open
plains of the great Etosha Pan, to woodland savannah and lush
vegetation. Etosha National Park, the third largest in Africa,
owes its unique landscape to the Etosha Pan, a vast shallow
depression edged by waterholes to the south which guarantee
rewarding game viewing.
Independent since 1990, Namibia was once governed by Germany and
South Africa. Germanic influences can be seen in its colonial
architecture, and in its roads and rest camps, most of which are
well-maintained. Namibia is peaceful and more prosperous than
many nearby countries because of its productive mining, farming,
fishing and tourism industries. However, with half the country's
agricultural land owned by a few thousand white farmers, land
reform is a burning issue.
