Sunsets in Namibia - video:

Namibia is rated as one of Africa’s top travel destinations. That’s a claim requiring supportive evidence but there exists an abundance of examples to substantiate this assertion. Where else can the traveller stand atop a dune that towers well over 300 metres above the surrounding desert floor, and glimpse a fraction of 34 000 km2 of the dune "sea" that stretches westward to the fogbound emptiness of the Atlantic shoreline? To the south the "Forbidden Area" (German: Sperrgebiet) invites exploration, invoking memories of times when diamonds lay in such profusion on the Namib floor that their collection was facilitated by searching for their brilliance under moonlight. The remnants of man’s habitation in this foreboding wilderness lie decaying under the relentless onslaught of wind and sand, their crumbling walls being stark reminders of the merciless forces of abrasive weather. Ghost towns of yesteryear crumble and dissolve into the desert sands.
