Description

Its recent independence in 1990 opened Namibia to travellers of all kinds--adventurous, cultural, day-trippers--as well as those planning extended stays. As Namibia is twice the size of California, this travel guide will be a necessity for anyone, including natives, making their way across the country's vast expanse by plane, train, 4-wheel drive, bus or foot. The country claims the largest population of wild cheetah in the world, as well as ruggedly magnificent desert wilderness which contain the highest sand dunes on Earth, coastal shoreline and rich fishing grounds with superb angling. More than 25 maps and many photos and illustrations punctuate the authors' vivid and comprehensive descriptions. As one of the world's least populated countries, Namibia has plenty of land for the visitor to roam. The entire country is covered here extensively: the Great Escarpments, the Namib Desert, the Etosha National Park, the southeastern lands, the coast region, and the northern plains and the Caprivi Region. Also included are descriptions of the cities of Windhoek, Swakopmund and Keetmanshoop and the many towns between them, the mountainous Kaokoland and Damaraland regions--With listings on varied accomodations ranging from elegant hotels to guest farms and suggestions for the best places to set up camp. Roads and conditions are described and recommendations for touring are given.
