NAMIBIA, LAND OF THE BRAVE
Namib, the oldest desert on Earth, lends its name to the nation with the second lowest population density and which seems to be part of another planet. Namibia, with four characteristic and totally different landscapes, attracts lovers of nature and freedom: you can drive hundreds of kilometers without even crossing a vehicle. Despite its isolation and vastness, it is a country prepared for tourism and allows adventurers to enjoy its unique attractions in comfort and safety.
The long coastal desert that runs the entire length of the country stands out for its belts of migratory dunes, dry riverbeds and gorges. The central plateau is home to most cities and towns in Namibia and divided between rugged mountain ranges and sand-filled valleys. The vast Kalahari desert, with red sand and sparse vegetation, reveals unique animal species. Finally, the Kavango and Caprivi regions, blessed with generous rainfall, feature tropical forests, perennial rivers and savannas.
Before the arrival of Europeans, the region was inhabited by Bantu people. In 1890, Germany took possession of the territory, becoming Southwest Africa. In 1915, during World War I, Namibia was occupied by South Africa, then under British rule. In 1920, the League of Nations gave South Africans a mandate to govern the territory. Independent from South Africa (and apartheid) since 1990, it inherited the infrastructure, is the world's second largest producer of lead and has significant reserves of uranium and diamonds.
