Definitely not a small country by any means, a vast majority of Namibia is taken up by the semi-arid Kalahari Desert. Its history ranges from indigenous tribes, German colonialism, South African dictatorship and eventual independence; all these have left influences on the culture, creating quite a diverse country that often goes unnoticed on the southwest coast. 

For opportunities to spot many beautiful species of wildlife, try Etosha National Park, home to the black rhinoceros; Fish River Canyon, the largest gorge in Africa; Sossusvlei, a drainage basin with an outflow; Namib-Naukluft National Park, part of the Namib Desert – considered the oldest in the world; and the Daan Viljoen Game Reserve, full of walking paths enabling tourists to travel around by themselves.
