Namibia, an arid country of surprising contrasts, is home to two great deserts. Along its length, the vast shifting sand sea of the Namib sprawls inland along the Atlantic coastline. In the interior, the plateau slopes away to the north and east to meet the Kalahari Desert. Over the years, there have been a number of cultural influences that have all added to the unique atmosphere of Namibia. At various times Germany, Great Britain and South Africa have all governed the territory, but it was with the eventual independence of Namibia in 1990 that the country was able to develop its multi-cultural character and reinvent itself.
Namibia is a safari destination with a difference, famed for its remote and intimate lodges, in starkly beautiful places filled with fascinating desert-adapted wildlife. This is a country famed for its expansive, sun-drenched landscapes, fascinating geology and unique cultures. For a place that at first glance may seem lifeless, the reality is astonishing: there are approximately 4000 species of plants, 650 bird species and 80 large mammal species.
