This is a Namibia-1on1 Information Site: and is 1 of a package
of 7 associated and interlinked information sites that we have designed to
provide you with information that will help you to plan your vacation to suit
both your financial and time budgets. The sites' layouts are logical, user
friendly and functional. It's never been so easy to find information about
Namibia Tourism. Us web browsers tend to skip and jump around sites, we
want the info quickly. OK! I'm a bit like that myself, but before
you go grass-hopping around, be aware that there is one mighty heap
of info on these sites, and it is all very relevant if you are
planning a visit here, so it's worth spending that bit longer and
doing your research here with care.
Plenty of Inter-Site Navigation Options:
There's a vast amount of information on the Namibia-1on1 group of sites and
you'll find yourself constantly moving between the various sites. You have
plenty of options for returning to the previous pages that you were studying.
Please familiarise yourself with the page navigation bar buttons. For example:
|The upper navigation bar with buttons is used for moving
to pages within this site ►
|The Right Hand navigation bar with links is for moving to
other Namibia-1on1 Group sites ►
You can see here, how the sites interact.

sites on the control panel at the bottom of each page.

Welcome to the many Namibians and Africans working and

|Namibia is a magnificently
vast, rugged and seemingly empty land. There are areas where you can drive for
over 250km (155mile) between service stations and camp in places having your
nearest neighbour over 100km (62mile)away. You will see the cloudless and the
bluest of blue skies for many months of the year, and if visiting in the rainy season,
hopefully, a welcome afternoon downpour. Namibia is a country of breathtaking
contrast. From the tropical forests of the Caprivi where the Okavango
and great Zambezi are home to crocodiles, hippo, and the herds of
migrating elephants - to the unique lifestyle of the creatures
of the Namib Desert that survive for months without 'drinking'
water. On the eastern border with Botswana the red sands of the
Kalahari flow onto the central savannah where,on
the large ranches, the cattle and sheep graze contentedly alongside the
wild game animals. And further south the herds of Oryx, kudu,
springbok and wild desert horses roam freely across the land. On the
west coast you will find the legendary and forbidding Skeleton Coast
and it is here that desert lions go down to the sea
to pray upon unwary seals as they bask on the shoreline. Inland the
elusive desert elephants of the Namib, the largest in the world, make their
daily trek of up to sixty kilometres in search for food and water. And
amongst all of this 'Africa' you will find a relatively orderly, peaceful, democratic
society. A country having modern facilities and clean
towns while allowing and respecting the ancient cultures and values of
others, such as the Himba tribes-people of the Kaokoveld. It is in
this land that you will discover the beauty and
experience the diversity, the remoteness, and the wonder of Africa at its best.
Thank you for being here.
