Namibian animals and Namibia wildlife watching destinations

Namibia is well known for its shipwrecks and huge red sand dunes, but it is the wildlife that will truly mesmerize you. With a population of only 2 million people, Namibia’s vast empty spaces flourish with wild creatures.

From the Namib desert with its desert-adapted species like the Gemsbok and the Namib Dune Gecko, to the wetlands of the Caprivi strip where crocodiles bask in the sun and hippos graze at night, to Etosha National Park, one of Africa’s greatest wildlife destinations, there is a lot to see in Namibia.
