This beautiful country

The striking vistas and complex geomorphology continue to unfold as we travel northwards.  The vegetation alters and we begin to see marked changes in the varying biomes (Namibia has five).  Dwarf shrubs and the milkbush stands, grasses, camelthorn trees change to green mopane and broadleaf trees.

Battling with slow internet connections so the next couple of posts show the variety and the scenic grandeur – mainly of the rugged Namib Nauklauft region.  I’ll be coming back to the little critters, extraordinary fauna and the most amazing birds….
