Namibia is home to the infamous Skeleton Coast, that desolate and rugged coastline along the Atlantic Ocean. It is here where we find the Namib Desert, the world’s oldest desert and a World Heritage site, from which the country gets its name. The eastern expanses are dominated by the Kalahari Desert; the central highlands are renowned for its free-roaming wildlife and the Etosha National Park. Kaokoland and Damaraland are where we find some of the most dramatic landscapes, the uniquely adapted desert animals and the proud Ovahimba people.
Namibia is home to many wonders, and the country laws are set to protect those wonders. Nature conservation, besides being the foundation of the ever-growing tourism market, it is today part of the Namibian lifestyle.
Namibia was the first African country to implement environmental protection into its constitution. These efforts contributed to an immense uplift of rural communities and the protection of nature and wildlife around the country. Namibia is a true story of a conservancy conscious country.
