Namibia is a country of startling contrasts that straddle two great deserts: the Namib and the Kalahari. The Namib Desert is the oldest desert on the planet and its sea of red sand lines the entire Atlantic coastline, while the eastern interior is home to the Kalahari, a vast and sparsely vegetated savannah that sprawls across the border into neighboring countries. Namibia is a large country, encompassing over 319,000 sq. miles (which makes it larger than France and Great Britain combined), yet it supports a population of only 1.8 million.
The National Parks and Game Reserves boast a huge variety of wildlife in an array of environments: Giraffes amble across the blinding white saltpans of Etosha National Park, Oryx plunge headlong up steep red dunes at Sossusvlei, and seals in their many thousands colonize lonely beaches along the Skeleton Coast. The contrasts are everywhere for the visitor to savor, enjoy and photograph. Namibia has rapidly become a well-known safari destination, known for its remote and intimate lodges, interaction with the indigenous people as well as the wildlife, and offering unique opportunities in becoming involved with the cultural heritage of its people.
