Wild, vast, remote

There are precious few places left on Earth quite like Namibia. A country that supports just three people per square kilometre - but a multitude of life. Desert-adapted elephant, lion, zebra, antelope, and many other species emerge, including the Critically Endangered black rhino. With the efforts of the Save the Rhino Trust Namibia, we have helped to quintuple their numbers over the past 30 years.
