Namibia’s past is as diverse as its landscapes. Its name derives from the Namib Desert, the world’s most ancient desert which stretches 2000 km from the Orange River in the South to the Kunene in the North. This is a land of many faces including the shifting dunes, the flat plains and the sandy riverbeds of the desert region. While Namibia is the most sparsely populated country in the world, it boasts a rich blend of 13 different ethnic groups.
Upon arrival in Windhoek, explore the old and new city renowned for its blend of German colonial and modern architecture. Visit Tintenpalast, the Palace of Ink and Christuskirche, the white walled former fort, Alte Feste, now a Namibian history museum.
