FROM THE ATLANTIC Coast, 1400 kilometres along the Angolan border, Namibia’s north ends at a small ferry crossing. It would be completely unremarkable but for one thing. It is the only place where four countries-Namibia, Zambia, Botswana and Zimbabwe- meet.
Some of Namibia’s greatest attractions are in the north. A number of national parks and game reserves are clustered in the east, where the waters flow into Botswana’s Okavango Delta. Small settler towns offer frontier hospitality and history. Nature blows your mind in many places, like Etosha (separate page) and Epupa Falls, in an area where the famed Himba tribes settled hundreds of years ago.
