This stunning depiction of geology in Namibia combines searingly beautiful photography with clear explanations of how the varied landscapes formed. Arranged chronologically (starting 13.8 billion years ago), the chapters each deal with a particular event or process that has resulted in the formation under discussion. These include the early beginnings of the Earth, meteorites, canyons and limestone caves, vast desert landscapes, moonscapes and bizarrely-shaped rocks, and Namibia’s astonishing underwater lakes and reservoirs. Picture-driven, with accessible text, this book features all the highlights of Namibian landscapes and landforms. A treat for travellers real and virtual – those on the road as well as those in armchairs.

The most up-to-date and comprehensive travel book to a country that promises great adventures. Covering everything from the wildlife-rich Etosha National Park to the giant sand dunes at Sossusvlei. Perfectly set up for independent travel, Namibia is the second least densely populated nation in the world - the vast area hosts just 2.3 million people and you'll often have Namibia all to yourself. Self-drive here is safe and manageable, meaning the country can easily be included in a longer trip to Victoria Falls, which has its own chapter in The Rough Guide to Namibia. Whether you admire German colonial architecture in Lüderitz, indulge in fresh oysters at Walvis Bay, marvel at ancient rock art or take a sunset cruise along the Zambezi, The Rough Guide to Namibia covers everything you need to know to make the most of your time in this wild, bewitching country. Winner of the Top Guidebook Series in the Wanderlust Reader Travel Awards 2017.

Ross K. Dowling and David Newsome present an original, substantial and much-needed contribution to the field to further our understanding of geotourism in theory and practice. This Handbook defines, characterizes and explores the subject through a range of international perspectives and case studies, identifying geotourism as a rapidly emerging form of urban and regional sustainable development. With extensive case studies from North and South America, Europe, Asia, Australasia and Africa, this global Handbook examines and explains the relationship between geology and tourism. Thematically arranged sections cover the relationship of geology with tourism, sustainability and society, geotourism in urban areas, and interpretation and education strategies. The final two sections assess geotourism's impact through wide-ranging case studies of UNESCO global geoparks and geotourism in a range of countries. The eminent academics and practitioners demonstrate how geotourism is the future for engaging the public and protecting geosites, as well as emphasising the importance of sustainability. An essential resource for students and educators, this Handbook provides an international perspective for those interested in tourism, environmental geography, ecology and geology. Written with practitioners in mind, this book reveals how tourism professionals and geologists should each know about the nexus of their subjects.
