Namibia: In 1984, I attended the only campus-wide political protest of my college career, for a country I had never heard of, a situation I knew absolutely nothing about and whose source of woe I would’ve been hard pressed to identify. Good thing the pins they gave out had a graphic of Africa; I would’ve never guessed Namibia was in Africa. It didn’t matter. I was there with my pin and my indignation and I was thrilled.

Please find a photo of that very pin! However, for a sense of the indescribable beauty that captivates every visitor, please click here to view the pictures from my inbound partner Amy Edmond’s recent trip to Namibia using Wilderness lodges.
