11 Incredible Photos of Namibia

Namibia is one of the most visually arresting countries on the planet. With its towering sand dunes, stark coastlines and rolling plains, sometimes it seems like it belongs to another world entirely. The hardy wildlife that survives in its harsher corners is amazing too, from the tough oryx to the fascinating and critically endangered puku antelope. Travel here is sure to please visitors looking for all different kinds of experiences, whether you want a safari where you might see rhinos, cheetahs, or many more famous mammals, or whether you want a fly-drive along some truly dramatic roads.

To demonstrate why Namibia is such a special holiday destination, we've rounded up eleven photos that we think showcase the country's beauty and drama.
