There’s southern Africa, and then there’s Namibia… it’s so close to its safari-centric neighbors yet so, so far from anything in the world that you’ve ever seen. A country of stark terrain, striking contrasts, and bathing in colors, scenes and sounds not likely to be found anywhere else in the world, whether it’s the stunning rugged coastline, the clicks one hears when listening to the intriguing tribal Khosian languages being spoken, the beautiful echos of animal calls and the sound of silence in the vast deserts. A land of contrasts waiting to be explored.
