The flora and fauna of Namibia are astounding in their variety and alterations. In an arid climate, surrounded on two sides by desert, there are rare plant species and many examples of wildlife adaptation – like the desert elephant. These unique spectacles along with shorelines strewn with old ship wrecks are singularly Namibian. This country and its hidden treasures are for those who appreciate an unspoiled and dramatic experience.
