About this book

Spectacular Namibia showcases a country at once harsh and extraordinarily beautiful. Photography, from some of the region's best photographers, brings to life the vibrant capital city of Windhoek and the lust waterways of the Caprivi, which stands in stark contrast to the dry expanses of the Kalahari and the Namib Desert, with its world-famous red dunes at Sossusvlei, rising up from the desert. On the floor of the rugged Messum crater, the two long leaves of the bizarre welwitschia plants, some thousands of years old, slowly grow, alongside a variety of animals and insects who make the desert their home. The guide also captures the cruel sweep of the Skeleton Coast, with the many ships it has wrecked, and the eerie ghost town of Kolmanskop. The exceptional natural beauty of Etosha, with its abundance of wildlife, is also explored in Spectacular Namibia. And along with these natural highlights are the country's lovely coastal towns - from Oranjemund and Walvis Bay, to the striking German colonial architecture of Luderitz and the growing centre of Swakopmund.
