Namibia is a country of staggering beauty and immense power, an ancient land of colours, contrasts and cultures, carved and shaped since the dawn of time. All those that have sought to explore this vast land – from the ancient San who have called Namibia home for thousands of years, to the Himba “ochre people” of the Kaokoveld; from Portuguese explorer Diogo Cão, who set anchor at Cape Cross in 1486, to the thousands of hopeful prospectors that clambered to its shores during the diamond rush at the turn of the twentieth century – all have been spellbound by the country’s indescribable spirit. In this entirely new update of their classic “Namibia”, first published in 1999 and having sold over 40 000 copies in various languages and editions, master photographers Gerald and Marc Hoberman have returned to Namibia to capture the essence of this awe-inspiring country and celebrate its many unique facets through more than 450 large scale full-colour photographs, accompanied by fascinating and entertaining text. From land and air, the renowned South African father-and-son team have covered the length and breadth of this immense country – from the arid Karas region of the south to the north-eastern wetlands of the Caprivi, from the treacherous Skeleton Coast shores to the colossal sand dunes of Sossusvlei and beyond.
