This short guided tour allows you to experience various highlights in Namibia in a relaxing way!
Namibia Biodiversity Overview Namibia is a country of astonishing contrasts, home to the oldest desert on the planet, the white saltpans of Etosha National Park, the uninhabited beaches of the Skeleton Coast and the vast wilderness of Kaokoveld. These unique landscapes are also home to much endemic and special wildlife that are found nowhere else on Earth.
Namibia’s diversity is astonishing: approximately 4 000 species of plants, over 650 bird species and 80 large mammal species, of which 604 plants, 14 birds and 15 mammals are almost entirely endemic to the country, some extending marginally into southern Angola. Reptile species total 258 and, as is fitting for such a dry, hot place, sun-loving lizard species number 125, making this the richest lizard fauna in Africa.
Species such as Hartmann’s mountain zebra, dune lark and Peringuey’s adder are spectacular examples of species that have adapted superbly to the harsh dry environment and, together with a myriad other species, are waiting to be ‘discovered’ by our guests.
