BIG SKIES, BIG SMILES
Namibia is an unrivalled destination for those (like Brad and Angelina) in search of a pristine wilderness experience. This vast and sparsely populated country on Africa’s South-West coast is about as untouched as any place on earth.
It is a stable, prosperous county with abundant mining, fishing, tourism and agricultural industries. And what her proud, peace-loving people lack in numbers and density, they make up for in warmth and hospitality.
Namibia offers wildly contrasting and dramatic landscapes. The entire 1570km coastline has been declared a protected area – the 8th largest in the world, and Africa’s largest National Park.
The desolate Namib Desert is said to be the world’s oldest, with its towering dunes and awe-inspiring sense of space. The central plateau, with its thorn bush savannah 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 savannah and lush vegetation.
