Its name, meaning Place of Great Arid Plains, only brushes the surface of the many wonders that lie within the Orange and Kunene River borders of Namibia. Boasting the world’s oldest desert, last remaining nomadic tribe, tallest sand dunes and second largest river canyon, Namibia rings with inspiring superlatives. This is timeless Africa, accented by newfound discovery at every corner.
Namibia is a land juxtaposed. Desolate coastlines give way to charming resort towns, arid dunes solidify to rugged rock formations, ancient rock engravings paint the first European settlements, and dry saltpans breed the rich algae to attract hundreds of wildlife.
Yet, despite its many extremes, Namibia remains one of the most inviting, friendly, and breathtakingly beautiful regions in the world; a place where the German pubs of Windhoek keep the doors open and the brews cold, and the local inhabitants, be they a native tribe or grazing wildlife, always imprint a lasting memory. A true Diamond in the Rough, Namibia awaits your discovery.
