FAUNA & FLORA

Namibia is a country of vast open spaces and desert expanses. The 1000km desert running along the Atlantic coast is the world’s oldest and boasts some of the highest dunes in the world. Despite these uninhabitable spaces, Namibia has a biodiversity of global significance. It is home to 2500 – 3000 cheetahs, the world’s highest population. Desert elephants roam, and the largest free-roaming population of rhinos in Africa can be found in Damaraland. This is also the only country in the world where animals and communities live together in one space as part of their conservation initiatives.

PEOPLE & CULTURE

Given the small (1.8million) population of Namibia, it is culturally extremely diverse. Over 70% belong to the Bantu-speaking peoples, the Ovambo and the Herero, and the country is also home to the largest population of Khoisan, descendants of the famous Khoisan Bushmen, in Africa. The relatively small caucasian population is largely composed of Afrikaners and Germans, and the Damara people still inhabit Damaraland and many other areas of Namibia. The German influence is very strong across Namibia, as visitors quickly realise, especially in the cities of Swakopmund and Luderitz.

GETTING AROUND

As distances in Namibia are so vast, the easiest and fastest way to travel is via air. With Windhoek as the primary international air hub, Air Namibia offers good flight connections to most major Namibian cities. Charter flights can be arranged to the safari destinations such as Sossusvlei, Damaraland & the Skeleton Coast. Self-drive is also a popular option as the roads in Namibia, although long and dusty, are relatively well maintained. Be aware that travel times are at least 3 hours between major towns and more in the wilderness areas and petrol stations are few and far between. A 4×4 is recommended, especially on gravel or dirt bush roads.
