Namibia

Namibia is one of the countries that can be found to the North of South Africa which it shares a border with, and also shares borders with Angola, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Zambia.

Much of Namibia is desert land, and is very dry, but it is extremely beautiful, and a great place to visit. The main city is Windhoek, which is in the center of the country, and the next most populated area is Swakopmund, which is on the coast of the country.

Namibia is where many German people like to holiday, as it was once a German colony, and has a lot of German speaking people, history and culture.

Self drive tours in Namibia are very popular, and if you would like some tour advice such as which routes to take, and what to see etc. I can highly recommend contacting www.namibian-safari.com. Namibian-safari.com have a sister company that is one of the top car rental companies in Namibia, if you would like a good vehicle for your travels in Namibia, visit www.windhoekcarhire.com.
