Famous for its Namib desert, the oldest desert in the world, which straddle the western shore along the Atlantic, Namibia is country of intense beauty and seemingly unlimited space. It is a photographer’s paradise. Watch the afternoon shadows add drama to the dunes at Sossusvlei, walk through the ghost town of Kolmanskop, hike the Fish River Canyon, see the lunar landscape and Quiver trees near Keetmanshoop, experience a world transformed when the Etosha pan fills with water, or look out for the endangered cheetah of which Namibia has the highest population left in Africa.
The country is a hugely popular tourist destination that offers endless possibilities to travellers throughout all budgets and travel requirements. Tourism is one of the country’s main economic activities, with around one million tourists visiting Namibia each year. Given that the country’s population currently sits somewhere around 2 million, this is a significant number. German tourists make up one of the largest tourist groups due in part to Namibia’s history with that country. In fact German is still spoken by many people in the country, although less now than in times past.
For self-drive travellers the road networks are extensive and generally well maintained. In fact, Namibia is one of the best places for self-drive travel in Southern Africa. Urban centers such as Windhoek, Walvis Bay and Swakopmund have all the facilities required by travellers, the country is stable, infrastructure good, and the country boasts some of the finest game viewing in Southern Africa. It also has a wide and well-established range of accommodation option ranging from basic campsite to luxury lodges.
Our Namibia map is well researched, very thorough and is an important planning and on-the-road tool for any Namibia trip. It includes all national, major and minor roads as well as many 4×4 tracks. Roads are named, with distances between points and it shows GPS co-ordinates of major intersections, as well as many minor ones too. In terms of accommodation we have included over 200 accommodation options – with contact details – listed by type and price per night. Namibia’s most popular national park, Etosha, is included as a large inset to this map showing waterholes, camps, distances, toilets, picnic sites and roads in both the eastern and (recently opened) western parts of the park. also included in the map are fuel availability, services, border posts, airstrips and various points of interest. The map includes information in areas that are not so popular, and are often overlooked, such as Khaudum, a remote park in the northeast of the country. Also included is the area next to the dry Nossob riverbed between Gobabis and the entrance gate of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. With a scale of 1:1.400.000, the northern area of the country is printed on one side of the map, while the southern area is on the reverse. Highly detailed and useful, this map can still be handled comfortably in the confines of a vehicle.
