Namibia, a huge but sparsely populated country, is situated in southwestern Africa. It is known for its contrasting landscapes. There is the brooding desolate Namib Desert, said to be the oldest in the world, with its high dunes and awe inspiring sense of space. The central plateau, with its thornbush savanna and rugged mountains, rising abruptly from the plains, gives way to the majestic Fish river canyon national park in the South. In the North of the country, landscapes range from dense bush and open plains of the great Etosha national park pan, to woodland savanna and lush riverine vegetation.

The capital city of Windhoek is a great place to start your trip. It is the travel hub of Namibia and offers good nightlife, restaurants and nice sights. Swakopmund is a very German town in Namibia. It is indeed a strange feeling to walk through a German street in the African sun; to drink German beer while enjoying the African sun is a another good option here.

All these facts combine in a country which can justifiably be known as Africa's Gem

Most of the African game species are well represented in Namibia, with the largest concentration in the Etosha National Park which is firmly entrenched on the world map of international parks. Etosha provides memorable experiences. Namibia is home to the largest population of cheetah still in existence. A waterhole at dawn with a medley of giraffe, zebra, rhino, graceful antelopes and a solitary hyena is like a finely etched painting of African wildlife.
