Namibia, with its population of
just over two million people, is located in southern Africa and borders the
Atlantic Ocean on its west, Angola and Zambia to its north, Botswana to its east
and South Africa to its south and east.
Namibia is about three times the size of
the United Kingdom and the Namib Desert that rolls along its coast is deemed to
be the oldest desert in the world with sand dunes higher than any where else on
the planet. Most of the country is indeed desert, or semi desert, with dry
rivers and scare water resources making it a country with a very low population
density, just 1.4 people to every square mile.
