There are many Game Reserves and Parks in Namibia. At first this seemed strange to me as most of Namibia is desert or semi-desert and one would not expect animals to be able to survive here. However, the desert is home to a myriad creatures and plants that have adapted brilliantly to their hot, dry environment in unique and marvelous ways. Two hundred and four species of vertebrate, including 121 reptiles, five types of frog, 44 bird species and 34 different mammals, live in the deserts of Southern Africa.
The main routes connecting the bigger cities are tarred, the rest are dirt roads. Most of the dirt roads we traveled on were in very good nick. My little Honda Jazz traversed them with ease. It may however be more of a challenge for low-slung sport-cars.
It is a land of great beauty and contrasts, wide open spaces and thundering silence.
