Namibia is an unbelievably vast country, that means on an area of about 825 000 km² you can expect to see very different landscapes. The entire western border is one long coastline, accommodating the Namib dessert. Not only known as the oldest desert, but also for the biggest dunes in the world. Dunes that, depending on the time of day, can display a kaleidoscope of colours, ranging from a soft peach to a deep maroon. Here you can also find the Welwitschia Mirabilis plant, a living fossil from prehistoric times. In the South lies the succulent Karoo, which is notable to be the world’s richest area of succulent plants. Also situated in the south is the Fish River Canyon, second only to the Grand Canyon. The central plateau which is situated up to 2000 m above sea level spans the country from north to south. It is mostly covered in grassland and thorny shrubs. Predominantly known for the Khomas Hochland region, the region housing the capital city Windhoek, the central plateau offers breath-taking scenic views from its numerous elevated areas. One of the biggest attractions that can be visited in Namibia is located in the north; the Etosha National Park is world renowned for its superb game viewing possibilities. The massive salt pans fill up during rainy season and becomes the home of thousands of flamingos, big game like elephant, rhino and zebras live close by in the savanna. A really special place can be discovered in the North-West of Namibia, here lies the Zambezi Region, formerly known as the Caprivi Region. As one of the very few parts of the country that has perennial rivers this is a green gem nestled in the savannas of southern Africa. Not only buffalo and elephant roam these lush wetlands, but also the lechwe, the water buck and of course: Nile Crocodiles.
