About Namibia

Namibia is situated on the south-western coast of Africa, bordered by the Atlantic Ocean in the west, Botswana and Zambia in the east, South Africa in the south, and Angola in the north. The country gained its independence in March 1990. It is a multi-party democracy with a separation of powers between the executive, legislative and cabinet. The current president is HE Hifikepunye Pohamba.

With one of the lowest population densities on earth, Namibia is renowned for its wide, open spaces, the Etosha National Park, haven for a multitude of flora and fauna, and the Namib Desert, home of the highest sand dunes in the world.

Connecting to Namibia

As well as regular airline links between Namibia to the surrounding countries, the country is connected by road to Angola, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana and South Africa. The Trans-Kalahari corridor and the Walvis Bay-Ndola-Lumumbashi corridor provide important road links between the Namibian port of Walvis Bay on the Atlantic coast, and her landlocked neighbouring countries. In particular, the Trans-Kalahari corridor links the port to Botswana and Zimbabwe. The Walvis Bay-Ndola-Lumumbashi corridor links Namibia's landlocked neighbouring countries of Zambia and the Democratic Republic of Congo to the port of Walvis Bay. This port is an emerging transit point for commercial traffic bound to or from landlocked Zambia and other countries in the region.

The port of Walvis Bay has been modernised and deepened so that large vessels can now dock and unload there. Together with its close proximity to Europe, this modernisation has made Walvis Bay the most convenient port for exports from Europe destined for Southern African countries.

A resilient business community operates within an established professional infrastructure.
