    Namibia

Namibia's landscape is made up of five distinct geographical regions; the Central Plateau, the Namib Desert, the Escarpment, the Bushveld and the Kalahari Desert. The Central Plateau runs from North to South and incorporates Windhoek as well as Nambia's highest point; the Königstein. The Namib Desert is an area of immensely arid gravel plains and sand dunes and includes the Skeleton Coast and the Kaokoveld areas, while the Great Escarpment rises to over 2,000 metres and is known for its rocky and very poorly developed soil.

Found in the North Eastern section of Namibia along the Caprivi Strip and the Angolan border, the Bushveld region receives a much greater amount of water or precipitation each year, resulting in cooler temperatures and better conditions for animal and plant life. The Kalahari is probably Namibia's best known geographical feature. Spread between Namibia, South Africa and Botswana, the Kalahari is a desert with a difference, being home to areas such as the Succulent Karoo and its 5,000 succulent plant species.

Despite the harsh climates, one of the biggest attractions of Namibia is the Etosha National Park, where a wide range of wildlife wanders naturally, and where visitors can spend hours watching a lion stalking its prey or a baby elephant playing at a watering hole. Other highlights of Namibia include the coastal holiday town of Swakopmund, the sea of sand dunes at Sossusvlei and the magnificent views found at the world's second largest canyon; the Fish River Canyon.

Namibia with Africa Yethu:

Take a luxurious Namibian holiday and safari with Africa Yethu, where you'll discover an amazingly diverse and photogenic country. There's the Etosha National Park – One of Africa’s most important wildlife sanctuaries and a wonderful wildlife-viewing venue encompassing a vast salt pan 80 miles long. Famed for its diversity of wildlife, and when the Pan is filled during the rainy seasons, it can be seen from the sky! Meaning "place of dry water" appropriately describes the vast salt pan which is cracked for much of the year. Believed to have originated over 12 million years ago as a shallow lake, Etosha is said to have the tallest elephants in Africa, and is acknowledged as being one of the last wild safe havens for the endangered black rhino.

Namibia is unique, from its deserts, lush bush and savagely wild coast; to its ever-changing light and gloriously incongruous colonial architecture, it's a total one-off.
