Namibia is a country in Southern Africa with an Atlantic coastline to the west.
It is bounded to the east by Botswana, to the south by South Africa, and to the north by Zambia and Angola. The country is well-known for its Namib Desert, which runs along the Atlantic Ocean, and it is home to numerous national parks with diverse wildlife.
The salt flats and red dunes of the Sossusvlei area in the Hardap Region, as well as the nearby Deadvlei white clay pan, are among Namibia's most popular tourist attractions. Other popular attractions include the Fish River Canyon, Africa's largest canyon, Epupa Falls, and Waterberg Plateau Park, which is popular for hiking and camping. Windhoek, Namibia's capital, is the main starting point for safaris throughout the country.
Notable landmarks in this city include the Alte Feste (Old Fortress), which was built during German colonisation and now houses the Namibian National Museum. Among other German Colonia-era buildings in Windhoek is the historic Christus Church (Christuskirche), a Lutheran church with a mix of neo-Romanesque, Art Nouveau, and Gothic revival styles.
