Einführung/Introduction Namibia

Namibia erstreckt sich an der südlichen Westküste Afrikas am Atlantik. Die Fläche des Landes umfasst 825.615 km² und ist mehr als doppelt so groß wie Deutschland. Zentrale Landesteile sind Hochebenen, die nach Westen abfallen. Obwohl einige Gebiete im Norden Namibias in der dortigen Regenzeit zwischen Dezember und März gelegentlich überschwemmen, gilt das Land als eines der trockensten in Afrika. Winde, die Regen bringen, kommen zumeist aus dem Osten. Während im Nordosten ca. 600 mm Regen pro Jahr fallen, ist der Regen in den wüstenartigen Regionen im Süden minimal. An der Atlantikküste prägt der Benguela-Strom das Klima.
