Clothing, language, art, music, sport, food and religion are only a few things which defines a Namibia safari. There are at least 11 major ethnic groups which characterize Namibia’s very rich and diverse culture. Namibia is also home to the distinctive Khoisan “click” which is spoken by the indigenous people of Southern Africa. Proud Namibians however, aren’t the only thing one can experience whilst on a safari in this rugged Southern African Country.
Namibia might well be Africa’s most beautiful Country with the most interesting places such as vast landscapes and safari locations ranging from unworldly and unrealistic sand dunes, to glorious mountain ranges, and river-carved canyons to golden-grassed plains of the Kalahari stretching as far as the eye can see.
It is not uncommon for visitors to, at some stage, look around and wonder if they have fallen off the face of the earth. Namibian fauna and flora have mastered the art of survival, adaption and thriving in these extreme landscapes with are some of the most beautiful places to visit. Some of the artists one can expect to experience are Gemsbok, the Golden Mole, Namib Desert Viper, Meerkats, Namib Desert beetle, Camelthorn trees, various other types of grasses, the Big 5 and others of course. Over 750 species of fauna and flora are endemic to Namibia, meaning that they can be found nowhere else on earth.
The famous Mahatma Gandhi quote “Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's needs, but not every man's greed” and Gary Snyder’s words “Nature is not a place to visit. It is home” springs to mind when Namibia is mentioned. Conservation has always played an integrate role in the lifestyle of the early Khoisan up until modern day Namibians, believing that one should live side by side with wildlife. Conservation is the cornerstone of this endemic country boasting with global significance, since Namibia was the first African country to incorporate protection of the environment into its constitution.
Now, it is your turn. Go experience Namibia and what it has to offer in full force.
