Namibia, Southern Africa
Namibia is a relatively young country in Southern Africa. The territory of Namibia was briefly a German protectorate
at the turn of the 20th Century and was subsequently ruled by South Africa from 1920 to 1990 and was known as
South West Africa. Namibia gained its independence in March, 1990 after years of armed struggle with South Africa.
It is the least populated country in Africa and one of the driest places on Earth. Much of the country is desert
with the great and ancient Namib Desert extending from the southwest corner, along the coast to central Namibia.
The Kalahari Desert lies in the southeast corner of the country. Namibia's landscapes are varied and uniformly
spectacular, from the tallest and oldest sand dunes in the world at Sossusvlei to the red granite boulder mountains
of north central Namibia to the bushveld and savannah of Etosha National Park, one of
Africa's greatest wildlife preserves.
My wife and I recently spent two weeks exploring much of Namibia's natural wonders.
We rented a car in Windhoek and drove around the country on dusty gravel roads, only occasionally encountering
another vehicle or any other people. In the galleries below you will find photographs documenting our trip and
showcasing the natural beauty and wildlife of Namibia.
