Though it may be one of the youngest countries in the world, Namibia is revered as a global leader in conservation and responsible tourism and offers a wealth of unique adventures. Roughly 42% of the country is under some form of protection, including its entire coastline (the only country in the world that can claim this). It also boasts the world's only remaining population of free-roaming Black Rhino, and only growing population of free-roaming lion and cheetah. For those seeking adventure in Africa, there exist few other places where one can spend the day enjoying truly exclusive natural and cultural experiences that define the continent without encountering the crowds that inundate many of its other popular destinations. Destination expert Tyler Davis will share stories and photos from his November 2013 Namibian Safari. Learn insider tips firsthand as Tyler discusses his favorite experiences as both a traveler and a guide including ballooning over the world's tallest sand dunes, getting friendly with fur seals, tracking cheetah and rhino on foot and dancing with the Himba.
