Introduction to Namibia

Home to the forlorn and rugged Skeleton Coast, soaring red dunes rolling endlessly into the ocean and the Namib Desert—the world’s oldest desert and a UNESCO World Heritage Site—this is Namibia, and it’s like nothing you’ve ever seen before. Impossibly stunning landscapes, quiver trees that don’t exist anywhere else on the planet and even a ghost town overrun with sand. The real gem of Namibia isn’t the diamonds that are mined here but rather its extraordinary landscapes inhabited by desert-adapted wildlife.
