Great geology companion if you're visiting Namibia
by Deborah in UK
Last year I went on holiday to Southern Africa visiting South Africa, Namibia (the main event), Botswana and Zambia (all totally brilliant) with a tour operator from Namibia. In the overland truck they had many books and this was one of them. The landscape in Namibia is fascinating and having an Environmental Science background I was very hungry to know the where-wither and where-for. If you're satisfying a desire to go to Namibia and have a passion for Geology and / or Geography I think you'll really enjoy having this book as a companion whilst you're there.
