For geoscientists Namibia has always been a country of particular interest. The greatly varied geological structures make the earth history of this region like an open book — all that remains is to read it.
Many of the grandiose landscape pictures imprinted into the country were formed over millions of years, even up to 2000 million years ago. ln view of the time dimensions of earth history humans can view their own time span in a new light.
This travel guide was written to make the features and particularities of Namibian geology and the fascination, which can be derived from it, accessible to visitors and also to the interested laymen. The book gives the necessary basic knowledge in an easy understandable form and describes the geological attractions of Namibia, which can be seen en route. To experts on the country it also offers a detailed overview, which was previously not available in this form.
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.
