Namibia fascinates with the oldest desert in the world, contrasting landscapes and a unique animal kingdom. 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 to woodland savannah and lush vegetation.

Namibia is a gem for those in search of the wilderness, although not as well known as some of its African neighbours. It is a large and sparsely populated country on Africa's south-west coast, which has enjoyed more than two decades of stability since achieving Independence on 21 March 1990. Germanic influence can still be found in the country's good road infrastructure, well-equipped rest camps throughout the country and most cities' architecture.

The aura of mystery and mightiness of Namibia's Skeleton Coast is largely due to the dense coastal fog and cold sea breezes caused by the cold Benguela ocean current from the Arctic, and bones scattered along the beaches from which the coast derives its name.The attraction of this unique area lies in the colours, changing moods and untouched profiles of the landscape.

Another must see in Namibia is the Etosha national park, the third largest in Africa. A series of waterholes along the southern edge of the pan guarantee rewarding and often spectacular game viewing.

With its pleasantly warm and dry climate, clean air, good water and an unspoilt coast, vast untouched scenery and nature conservation areas Namibia is healthy by nature and sheer bliss for body and soul.
