Riassunto: This is an evocative portrait of the secret and spectacular geological and other natural features of this wild country. Namibia is a vast, ancient place, its legacy an endless expanse of desert sand fringed by coastal plain and rugged mountain terrain and dotted with geological wonders that remain the country's most impressive features. Intrigued by the scenic splendor and entranced by the ever-changing landscape that emerges beyond every corner, every towering dune and every mountaintop, Lily and Marcel Jouve traveled the length and breadth of the country to discover the varying facets of the land and its geology. In "Secret Namibia", they share their exploration of the terrain, and reveal its secrets - from the geomorphological make-up to the best routes to follow and the finest places to stay. From the famed Spitzkoppe to Kaokoland, Etosha National Park to the Fish River Canyon, Sossusvlei to Sandwich Harbor, this is Namibia through their lens, their celebration of its rock and sand, valley, canyon and plain - the immense space carved by water and wind and the passing of time - and the unique flora and fauna that have made their home in these remarkable landscapes. "Secret Namibia" is an invitation to discover, through word and image, the intriguing natural features of this wild country.
