    Default The wilds of Namibia

    Namibia, a country of stark beauty and riveting contradictions, should be at the top of any serious traveler's want-to-visit list. The vast and forbidding landscape is otherworldly. Dead trees, left, among the Sossusvlei dunes.



    Tourists climb one of the Sossusvlei dunes, which rise as high as 1,000 feet and cover an area as large as Maryland along 400 miles of the coast





    A dazzling geological display of possibly the world's highest sand dunes.



    Himba women in their village outside Opuwo.





    Souvenirs for sale in Swakopmund, a surreal seaside town that feels like a cross between Brighton-by-the-Sea and Bavaria



    On a continent where centuries of European encroachments have eroded tradition, Africans who cling to outward manifestations of their culture are increasingly rare. And there's perhaps nowhere in the region where outsiders can mingle with them more casually than in Opuwo. Himba women in the OK Grocer.



    Those nave enough to believe that a dune is a dune are faced with a dizzying array of sand configurations in Sossusvlei.
