Namibia is one of the world's last true wildernesses, home to the highest sand dunes, the oldest desert and the only place to catch a glimpse of the rare black rhino, or desert-dwelling elephants. With a wealth of animals and birds to get twitchy about, this diverse landscape is perfect for the environmentally conscious traveller with a sense of adventure. Footprint's fully revised 6th edition Namibia Handbook helps you stay ahead of the game in Namibia's national parks and provides thorough listings on where to sleep and eat, and how to get around. It provides fantastic coverage of all the national parks and their incredible wildlife, including a 32-page wildlife guide.
