The Independence's Year:




It is the ex German Africa of the Southwest, independent only from 1990.
It is a great (almost 3 times more than Italy), desert and a little inhabited (density of only 2 abs / Kmq) nation, very beautiful. It is an organized nation, civil, cleaning up and pacific; characterized anywhere from extraordinary landscapes, both long the coast, both in the great deserts of the west Namib and of the east Kalahari, both in the buckets inside plateaus as the splendid Damaraland or in the salty depressions like the Etosha Pan.
It is the kingdom of the nature, in fact it is easy to meet all the most known kinds of the wild animals of Africa.
To slowly cross the Etosha and to stop in its frequent puddles of water means to familiarize with enormous elephants and with tall giraffes, with thousand of zebras and antelopes, with ostriches, gnu and families of lions with their pups.
