Introduction

Namibia lies in Southwest Africa and borders the South Atlantic Ocean to the west, Angola to the north, Zambia in the northeast, Botswana in Southeast and South Africa to the South.

Namibia is the 34th largest country in the world. It stretches for about 1,300 km from south to north and varies from 480 to 930 km in width from west to east.

The country encompasses broad geographical variations and can be divided into four regions. The dunes and desert coastal plains of Namib, the Skeleton Coast, the Kalahari Basin and the wooded bushveld of Kavango and Caprivi.

The oldest desert in the world, the Namib Desert, stretches along the whole west coast of the country, while the Kalahari Desert runs along its southeastern border with Botswana.
