The Travel Guide
Some say Namibia with a population of 1.8 million is Africa's best kept secret but we agree that its a land of wonderful contrasts. In the west of the country from where the icy Benguela current sweeps up the Atlantic coast providing an abundance of fish life and the ghostly fogs that float ashore to lie suspended over the brooding Namib Desert to provide some much needed moisture to desert-adapted flora and fauna.
The aptly named Skeleton Coast hides shipwrecks in its misty waters and crumbling bones in its sandy shores, while the well-adapted desert elephants and rhinos roam the rocky hills of Damaraland and Kaokoveld further to the north.
In the game-rich Etosha Park, along the meandering Zambezi and Chobe Rivers through the Caprivi Strip, there re extensive elephant hippo populations.
Many tourists flock to Namibia to see the Himba Peoples, one of the worlds last nomadic civilizations where women still walk bare breasted but they often suffer embarrassment at being followed by tourist cameras. Perhaps the western tourist should take the opportunity to wear less.
