Namibia is a Country in Southern Africa that is formally known as the Republic of Namibia. The Atlantic Ocean forms its Western border. It is bordered on the North by Zambia and Angola, on the East by Botswana, and on the South and East by South Africa.
The Botswanan right bank of the Zambezi River separates the two countries by less than 200 meters (660 feet), despite the fact that it does not border Zimbabwe. Its Capital and largest City is Windhoek.
Sub-Saharan Africa’s driest country, the Herero, Damara, and Nama people have lived in Namibia since prehistoric times. Immigrant Bantu peoples arrived in the 14th century as part of the Bantu expansion.
Namibia is a stable multi-party parliamentary democracy with a population of 2.55 million people. Agriculture, tourism, and the mining industry – which includes gem diamonds, uranium, gold, silver, and base metals are the backbones of the country’s economy, although manufacturing is a minor contributor. Namibia is one of the world’s least densely populated countries, owing to the vast, arid Namib Desert, from which the Country takes its name.
