Ministry of Environment and Tourism. Namibia’s National Parks


Description:

Namibia’s National Parks.

Summary / Notes:

Sparsely populated and covering a vast area of 823 680 km2, roughly three times the size of the United Kingdom, Namibia is unquestionably one of Africa’s premier nature tourism destinations. There is also no doubt that the Ministry of Environment and Tourism is custodian to some of the biggest, oldest and most spectacular parks on our planet. Despite being the most arid country in sub-Saharan Africa, the range of habitats is incredibly diverse. Visitors can expect to encounter coastal lagoons dense with flamingos, towering sand-dunes, and volcanic plains carpeted with spring flowers, thick forests teeming with seasonal elephant herds up to 1 000 strong andrnlush sub-tropical wetlands that are home to crocodile,rnhippopotami and buffalo. The national protected area network of the Ministry of Environment and Tourism covers 140 394 km2, 17 per cent of the country, and while the century-old EtosharnNational and Namib-Naukluft parks are deservedly regarded as the flagships of Namibia’s conservation success, all the country’s protected areas have something unique to offer.
