Far less traveled than its neighbors, South Africa and Botswana, who have gained fame as premiere safari destinations, Namibia remains to be a land unseen by many visitors to the African continent.
Although Southwest Africa shook its colonial shackles in 1990, now Namibia still exhibits an interesting blend of German colonial and African cultures. Windhoek, the cosmopolitan capital city is, not surprisingly, known for its great beer!
Those who know Namibia know it for its dunes, some of the largest in the world. These epic sea-side slopes have been formed over millennia by red sand washing up onto the shore, and then crafted by strong winds coming off of the Atlantic Ocean. Dune 7, the tallest dune in Namibia rises up 383-meters.
However, the home of “endless horizons” is so much more than big dunes and good beer. Northern Namibia is the home of Etosha National Park and the verdant eastern sliver of land known as the Caprivi Strip.
