What makes Namibia So Unique?

The tourism industry in Namibia is growing. Around a third of visitors come from South Africa, Europe and particularly from Germany. This new market is attracted to the country’s amazing landscapes, wildlife and popular deserts there.

Where would Namibia be without NGOs?

As well as helping in the human progress, wildlife are also NGOs priorities. Where would Namibia be without NGOs? Namibia would probably have lost its black rhinos as well as its famous elephant family. Wildlife would have been on the verge of extinction, there would have been fewer environmental education centers and fewer opportunities for Namibians to develop themselves. Today there are around 26 environmental NGOs working in Namibia.
