NAMIBIA


Namibia never fails to enthral its visitors, to charge the fantasies and imaginations of narrators in their eorts to aptly describe the manyfacetted grandeur and harsh splendour of this desert country.

So many words have been written and told, and still poets do not tire to invent attributes to do justice to its unique, ever-varying magnificence.

Sossusvlei, Namib-Naukluft National Park. Some of the highest sand dunes in the world, the highest reaching 300-400 meters (350m on average, named "Big Daddy" or "Crazy Dune"), which rest on a sandstone terrace.

The Dead Vlei

Dead Vlei is a white clay pan located near the more famous salt pan of Sossusvlei, inside the Namib-Naukluft Park in Namibia. Also written DeadVlei or Deadvlei, its name means "dead marsh" (from English dead, and Afrikaans vlei, a lake or marsh in a valley between the dunes).

Swakopmund.

Possibly the weirdest town on earth. Swakopmund is a beach resort and an example of German colonial architecture. It was founded in 1892 as the main harbour for German South-West Africa.

Buildings in the city include the Altes Gefängnis prison, designed by Heinrich Bause in 1909. The WÜrmannhaus, built in 1906 with a prominent tower, is now a public library.

The city is known for extreme sports. Nearby lies a camel farm, which is always useful to know.
