Namibia

“The land God made in Anger”

Namibia, a large and sparsely populated country on Africa’s south-west coast bordering South Africa to the South, Angola to the North and Botswana and a small portion of Zambia to the East along the Caprivi Strip which runs into the Okavango Delta.

One reason for Namibia’s landscape being so magnificent is that rock formations are clearly visible in many places.  Much of this is due to the current arid environment, which has produced little top soil and therefore minimal vegetation to cover the underlying rocks.

One of the best ways of experiencing and seeing the rock formations & geological profile of Namibia is by air… Humbling; breathtaking and liberating.

Namibia, which is the size of Germany and the United Kingdom combined, is home to 2.3 million Namibians, making it the second least densely populated country in the world after Mongolia.
