While Namibia may seem like a remote destination travel-wise, it’s actually the most tourist-friendly country in Southern Africa! Namibia, known as the “Gem of Africa”, is a unique place for eco-tourists. Much of Namibia is as it was centuries ago. Due to this, it has a host of natural wonders and amazing places…and English is the official language!
The country is like an exposed gem, just sitting out there in the desert waiting to be discovered and explored. It’s the remoteness – Namibia is one of the least densely populated places in the world – that makes it such a unique and stirring place to visit. It is the hunt of a lifetime, an adventure to treasure…and an impression that will linger…long after you’ve returned home.
It was the first country in the world to include environmental conservation in its constitution! To protect the country's wildlife and scenic natural beauty, several national parks and conservation areas were created, covering 14% of the country's surface area. In December 2010, Lonely Planet named Namibia the 5th best tourist destination in the world in terms of value.
