Namibia is truly unique, influenced by various cultures during colonization, and now reborn from the shadows of Apartheid in 1990. What has emerged is a true sense of unity in diversity – the coming together of at least 11 major ethnic groups, each celebrating their past while working together toward the future. You’ll notice this in dress, language, art, music, sport, food and religion. There exists a wonderful collage, but first and foremost, Namibians are proud to be Namibian. And for good reason.
The Caprivi region, the long finger like extension in northeast Namibia, was annexed to then German South-West Africa give Germany access to the Zambezi River.
