Welwitschia mirabilis

To the west the Namib desert meets the Atlantic and its rich fishing grounds

On the coast are the holiday resorts of Walvis bay and Swakopmund

To the south the landscape changes dramatically to some of the world's highest dunes at Sossusvlei and the world's second largest canyon - the Fish River Canyon

breakfast

With a well-developed infrastructure combined with an extensive choice of Parks, resorts and accommodation establishments, tourism has started to play an increasingly important earner and job provider for Namibia

Rigid laws for the protection and conservation of natural resources are followed meticulously by the tourism industry - Namibia was the first country in the world that included an Environment Protection Treaty in its constitution. 

The protection of rare and endangered species was initiated in 1972.  The protection of the black rhino gained momentum in the early eighties; at this point Namibia is the only country in the world with a growing black rhino and cheetah population. Both species are listed internationally as highly endangered.

The Namib is considered one of the oldest deserts in the world - a long coastal desert which extends along the entire coastline - interrupted with dune belts, dry riverbeds and deeply eroded canyons.

The country takes its name from this desert.

The Kalahari desert (not a true desert) is made up of arid to semi arid sandy areas supporting some animal and plant life.
