Namibia is the aridest African
country south of the Sahara with a population of under two million
people. It has got two deserts, the Namib along its western coast and
the Kalahari along its eastern border. Between the deserts, it consists
mostly of dry savannah. Our summer is our rainy season with January and
February usually the months bringing the heaviest rainfalls. Windhoek,
the capital of Namibia, is the only city that actually qualifies as a
city. Two hundred thousand people live in it.
Despite the small population, over
ten languages are spoken in Namibia with English being the official one.
The average Namibian speaks at least two or three languages fluently.
The deserts as well as our abundance
of wildlife attract tourists from all over the world, mostly from
Europe. Since I love the outdoors myself, you can find a couple of
photographic tours below. All photos are copyrighted by me and their
distribution is prohibited by default. If you want to use them in any
other way than just watching them on my web site please contact me.
My new digital camera, an Olympus
Camedia C-750 UltraZoom, has arrived. The list below is bound to grow.
So you better check out this page occasionally.
