Wilderness and peace: Namibia travel allows you to discover a unique realm and stunning traditional communities
Few countries in Africa can match Namibia’s sheer natural beauty. The country’s name derives from the world’s oldest desert, the Namib. At some point during your stay in Namibia, you may well look around and wonder if you have fallen off the end of the earth. This tends to happen most often along the country’s barren, sandswept coastline. In the north, along the Skeleton Coast and Angolan border, instead, you will be surprised by the shipwrecks along the shore. The sensation is that humankind here is very much at the mercy of the elements.
Namibia’s history is undoubtedly enthralling: their architecture and museums, Lüderitz, Swakopmund and Windhoek tell a complicated story of colonial settlement and oppression. In any case getting to know the many different locals who call Namibia home will provide you with memorable moments.
