Namibia is a country of wide, open spaces, its stark beauty owed to the wonderful desert scenery and the incredibly harsh but breath-taking Skeleton Coast. The country is relatively new in the safari world, but there is an excellent range of hotels, camps and safari lodges. These locations are frequently far apart, and charter flights are often necessary . Namibia is recommended for travellers who have done some serious, in-depth game viewing elsewhere. The prime attraction is endless and captivating desert scenery, amazing colours and contrasts, spectacular sunsets, and the interaction between the desert and its resident wildlife, as well as remote communities of people such as the Himba.
