Namibia, a country in Southern Africa located north of South Africa and south of Angola, has in recent decades emerged as a top destination for nature enthusiasts. Mild weather, rich wildlife, and picturesque landscapes are major draws.
Many visitors to Namibia travel to the Namib Desert which is characterized by the tallest sand dunes in the world.
Tourism has a substantial economic impact in Namibian, accounting for roughly one-seventh of the national economy and nearly a fifth of employment.
