Namibia is an amazing country: sparsely populated, extremely dry, with huge deserts and the highest sand dunes in the world . We toured in the north, spending 2 days in the Etosha National Park and then in the south to the Namib Desert, where there is less wildlife to see but more spectacular scenery, including the impressive Fish Canyon, the Sossusvlei dunes (click here to see photo), the windy coastal town of Lüderitz and the abandoned, eerie goldmining town of Kolmanskop. (Total of 3158 miles in 13 days)
