Namibia

Namibia is often described as “Africa for beginners,” the wonders of the continent writ small. Rarely have I seen a country as diverse in both landscape and people. My journey through the country took me from Etosha National Park in the north, with many mesmerizing night time hours watching the animals around the floodlit watering holes, down past the Skeleton Coast with its rugged, windswept beaches and through the Namib Desert, famous for its mountainous sand dunes and enormous painted sky. Despite having at least 11 major ethnic groupings, including the nomadic Himba and the Herero who still wear Victorian-era costumes, the country is one of the world’s most stable. If you only visit one country in Africa, make it Namibia. For more of my travel photography, follow me on Instagram at www.instagram.com/fly.icarus.fly.
