    I've lived here for over 10 years and I still find new places to visit. What makes this place special...let's start with the landscape so bereft of life at a quick glance yet so full when you take the time to study it. How about the desert of many colors...like God's own paint palette. Let us not forget the diverging physical features - from the flat scapes of the north to the famed fish river canyon of the south and the sossusvlei in the mid of it all. If you are in need of renewal of faith come and see how nature has found a way here... almost 6 years ago

    Well, I think that Namibia is so special that I'm planning a trip there in July! I was attracted to the country Initially because I heard the landscape is so unique and because of the opportunity to see many different and unique animals. In doing more research, I'm really looking forward to meeting people who I hear are very diverse and very kind. And, as a travel and food writer, I'm looking forward to eating! :-)
    If there is any writing I could do for the Namibia Tourist Board, please let me know.

    I was in Nambia in 2009 and had the most amazing holiday.

    We drove our way across Botswana, through Nambiai and up to Zambia. Such a wonderful experience that my children still talk abotu daily.

    My favourite memories of Namibia were
    - the sand dunes
    - Etosha National Park
    - Cheetah farm
    - Ngepi (in a tree house!)
    - Joes Beerhouse in Windhoek!

    Lucky girl TravelEater to be going there in July. I'm so jealous. almost 6 years ago

    Namibia has an amazing variety of wildlife! Second largest canyon in the world, Fish River Canyon (after Colorado), largest population of cheetahs on earth and the only known desert elephants, which adapted to desert conditions. Namibia is second last country on earth (after Mongolia) with lowest population density of 2,1 person per square kilometer, which creates specific "solitaire" wilderness conditions :) about 5 years ago

    Namibia hat eine erstaunliche Vielfalt der Tierwelt! Zweitgrößten Canyon der Welt, Fish River Canyon (nach Colorado), die größte Population der Geparde auf der Erde und die einzige bekannte Wüstenelefanten, die Voraussetzungen Wüste angepasst. Namibia ist vorletzte Land der Erde (nach Mongolei) mit der niedrigsten Bevölkerungsdichte von 2,1 Personen pro Quadratkilometer, die spezifische "Solitär" Wildnis Bedingungen schafft :) about 5 years ago

    Namibia is special. In an around the world holiday it was the most surprising place and the country to which I would most quickly return. The people are some of the most genuine I've ever met. The animals incredible and the watering hole at Etosha National Park can captivate your attention for hours. From Fish River Canyon, to Soussevlei to Swakopmund and everything in between; nature's scenery is stunningly beautiful. In just over a month my husband and I traveled bits of South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe and we have been to parts of Kenya, Tanzania and Egypt and Namibia is the country that captures our minds and conversations about return trips to Africa. Namibia is definitely special.

    Etosha of course is world famous and a must see..Tick that box.Getting up there took me through Damaraland and scenery I just felt was true wilderness. Places like Palmweg and Hobatere just stunned me. So I came back again and again. Up to Caprivi too.Fish River Canyon (nach Colorado), over 4 years ago
