Namibian Poem | |
Drink the Namibia Countryside
Namibia a West African country, on the Atlantic coast
Namibia’s beauty is wonderfully surreal and alluring,
With endless savannah and bushland
With most stunning landscapes in Africa,
with acres of ocean shores, woodland savannas,
With game-rich grasslands and a semi-arid Central Plateau
lonely desert roads where mighty slabs of granite rise out of swirling desert sands
Land of swirling apricot dunes and shimmering white flats, mirages and dust devils,
With large expanses of arid and semi-arid land
Namibia`s young population is ambitious and ready to forge ahead
With highest literacy rates and one of the most stable democracies
Friendly, natural people with 14 ethnic groups, 26 different languages
two million people share the vast spaces of Namibia
With rich heritage and traditions
Namibia `s desert landscapes, volcanic mountains, desolate salt pans, giant sand dunes
Namib Desert is one of the oldest deserts in the world
Dunes are incredible, and are the tallest dunes in the world;
Amazing landscapes of red sand dunes, fascinating rock formations, vast plains, bizarre coastal dunes,
Bleached whalebones and ancient shipwrecks
organ pipes are a unique series of quartz-dolerite pillars
With lush floodplains and picturesque deserts.
Namibia mighty gash in the earth at Fish River Canyon
plankton-rich coastal waters support an extraordinary array of marine life
Tenderness fetching flora and fauna.
Long the Namibian coast lays the Namib Desert,
A spectacularly barren, brilliant red sand landscape
Divided into the Skeleton Coast and the Diamond Coast
Most famously, it is the richest source of diamonds on the planet,
The coast, with its productive fishing grounds and the deep water harbor
Namibia an amazingly diverse animal world,
The wildlife utopia of Etosha National Park.
One of the world's greatest wildlife-viewing spots
Offers an exceptional range and abundance of wildlife.
Boasts the largest free-roaming population of black rhino in Africa,
and the largest cheetah population in the world.
Black-faced impala and crimson-breasted shrike.
Remote, wild and astonishingly beautiful with cascading Granite Mountains, amazing azure skies
Namibia with a wide variety of rock paintings and rock engravings
With a technicolor dreamscape,
World’s most captivating desert regions,
Namibia biota is rich, by global standards, and relatively well-preserved
containing both karroid and tropical elements

Namibian Poem | |
What's the need of a resolution?
In life's solution
Always changes but compliments rotation
As I look around the location
I feel a sense of upliftment...
This is my home, gives me protection
They say it's full of corruption
But everyday is a new edition
Somethin' new, always happenin'
Like township music rocks, jammin'...
The feelin' I get when I walk the street
Makes me feel collected
Brings back the sensation
That triggers the vibration
And plants a seed of inspiration...
For my dreams, I envision
And there is no confusion...
That I'm back
And I'm proud to be Namibian!
