Witness the untamed beauty of Namibia, an arid country defined by extreme desert landscapes. Namibia is largely dominated by the “whispering” dunes of the Namib Desert, hailed as the oldest desert on the planet. However, it is also marked with rocky desert moonscapes and dry thornveld savanna to the north and east, and the remote Skeleton Coast on the west. While few creatures could survive in Namibia’s harsh environments, many species call this country home, proving their fascinating ability to adapt to their surroundings.
