Namibia, a country located in sub-Saharan Africa in the south western corner of the continent is a land of gripping beauty, wide open spaces and abundant sunshine. It is a country, arid for most parts but blessed with contrasting and unspoilt landscapes ranging from lush vegetation and riverine woodlands in the north eastern areas to mountains, gorges and spectacular desert settings in the southerly west.
With 22 National Parks, covering an area of more than 17% of the terrestrial area, Namibia has established an impressive system of National Parks, managed by the State, which constitutes a cornerstone of its hugely successful conservation programme.
While having recovered Elephant and Lion populations to complete the Big Five in Namibia, the country also boasts some exemplary conservation successes with the successful reintroduction of the Black Rhino in the Kunene communal areas and Etosha National Park and the reintroduction of Black Faced Impala. Namibia also boasts the highest population of free-ranging Cheetah in the whole world.
