The Land of the Sand Seas
A land of stark contrasts and spectacular landscapes, Namibia is the ultimate destination for photographers; a land of desert sand dunes, mountains and riotous colours. Namibia has become a popular African safari destination, as famous for the diverse cultural heritage of its indigenous people as for its great sand seas. In the north is the haunting Skeleton Coast with its shipwreck graveyards. Inland, the petrified forests of Damaraland are home to desert-adapted elephants. Many miles of well-maintained and traffic free roads through spectacular landscapes make Namibia a great place for a self-drive holiday.
