land of the brave
Namibia is a country known for its beautiful contrasts. Within the borders of Namibia, you will find the majestic Fish River Canyon, Namib Desert, Kalahari Desert, Etosha salt pans and Thornbush-savannah. Namibia's landscapes is what makes it the African safari destination it is today.
However, that is not all Namibia has to offer. Here you will find 'The Big 5', 'the small 5' and the 'ugly 5'. Ask your tour guide to tell you a little bit more about it around a campfire under the Milky Way.
This is the land where the desert elephants and desert lions roam around the dry river beds fighting for survival everyday.
All the wild of Southern Africa are spreaded out across the far stretches of the Namibian borders. It is bordered by rivers feeding diamonds to the desert and protected by the Skeleton Coast from intruders. The hundreds of shipwrecks are the evidence of that.
Namibia is a true gem. It will be difficult not to visit Namibia a second or a third time.
