Info about Namibia
The dry land of Namibia is the second least densely populated country in the world and is named after the Namib Desert, considered the oldest desert in the world. Its landscape consists of five geographical areas: the Central Plateau, the Namib Desert, the Great Escarpment, the Bushveld, and the Kalahari Desert. Located adjacent to the Bushveld in north-central Namibia is the Etosha Pan, one of nature’s most spectacular features. For most of the year it is a dry wasteland, but during the wet season it forms a shallow lake covering more than 6,000 square kilometres and is vital to the large numbers of birds and animals from the surrounding savannah. The Kalahari Desert seems to defy the common definition of desert with the Succulent Karoo being home to over 5000 species of plant.
Namibia has more than 300 days of sunshine per year making it a wonderful destination for travelers.
