Namibia, land of contrasts and harmonies
Namibia is a land where powerful, violent nature finds a strange harmony that makes a deep impression on every visitor: from the veld of Damaraland, where the rare black rhinoceros can be tracked on foot, to the Namib, the oldest desert in the world, and from the famous Skeleton Coast to Etosha National Park, home to the endemic black-faced impala, as well as the legendary Kalahari Desert. Because of the diversity of its landscapes, in Namibia you can enjoy a wide variety of experiences and adventures – all on the same trip.
One of the favourite destinations of travellers and adventurers from around the world is the Skeleton Coast, so called because of the remains of shipwrecks, caused by the strong ocean currents. In fact, because of the rough seas and harsh desert climate, the Bushmen dubbed the coast “The Land God Made in Anger”. It is the ideal habitat for the population of 200,000 sea lions, which benefit from the cold waters of the Atlantic.
We cannot talk about Namibia without mentioning the fascinating Himba, who live in the northern part of the country. They are one of the ethnic groups that has remained most faithful to its ancient lifestyle and traditions. Namibia is also a country where the powerful architectural, culinary and cultural influences of its colonial rulers – Germany, Great Britain and South Africa – can still be felt today.
