In 2010, Namibia celebrated 20 years of independence and tourism now grows by around 10% a year. The country's popularity as a safari and adventure destination has taken off and the infrastructure and amenities have improved dramatically to provide everything for the independent traveler or tourist. This thoroughly updated fourth edition includes all the developments in Namibia's accommodation, from guest farms to lodges to bush-camps, plus details on areas of natural interest such as the new Sperrgebiet National Park. Acclaimed author Chris McIntyre tempts adrenaline junkies with exciting opportunities for dune-boarding, ballooning and quad biking in the desert. Coverage extends to the fascinating range of wildlife adapted to Namibia's climate, visiting bushman villages and guidelines on eco-travel. From the desolate Skeleton Coast to the lush Kavango and Caprivi Strip or the picturesque capital, Windhoek, Bradt has it covered.
