From the BBC site:
Namibia, a large and sparsely populated country on Africa's south-west coast, enjoyed more than a decade of stability under its founding president Sam Nujoma, who led the long fight against rule by South Africa.
Germany took control of the area which it called South West Africa in the late 1800s. The discovery of diamonds in 1908 prompted an influx of Europeans. South Africa seized it during World War I and administered it under a League of Nations mandate. For more info on Namibia, check out the BBC site.
MARIE: From Cape Town to Namibia - in a monster truck, with 23 other passengers. We're all CAMPING out most nights, with one or two exceptions of backpackers dormitories. Nothing luxurious about this sightseeing holiday! BUT it's been fabulous.
