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.
