Come and Venture the Savannahs of Namibia's Location
Namibia's location and its parched landscape is what makes this one of the world's most arid countries, yet it still manages to have a unique and captivating beauty. The vast Namib Desert occupies much of the territory and gives the nation its name. To the north and east lie rocky deserts with moonscapes, and dry thornveld savannah. The Skeleton Coast is the treacherous stretch of coastline to the north of Swakopmund.
Sossusvlei has become the 'must see' destination with its huge red sand dunes - the highest in the world, while the world-renowned Etosha Pan Game Reserve is an unforgettable experience and the Caprivi Strip offers tiger and bream fishing.
The Orange River forms the border between Namibia's location with South Africa, while the Kunene and Kavango Rivers run along the northern frontier. In between there is precious little water at all. Etosha National Park ' one of the world's largest and most famous wildlife sanctuaries - is set in the northern savannah region.
The nomadic Himba people live in Damaraland and Kaokoland, where they follow a lifestyle little changed over hundreds of years.
