Namibia ranks as one of the least densely populated countries in the world.
According to Wikipedia, Namibia is 825,615 km² in size with a population of 2,645,096 million (estimate 2022), which means that calculated there are roughly 3,2 people per km². To say Namibia is vast is an understatement.
It is twice the size of California (which has a population of approx. 39,5 million) and it’s one and a half times the size of France (which has a population of approx. 67,8 million).
Namibia is said to be 99,88% land with only 0,12% of the country being water and yet surprisingly, it’s one of the countries in southern Africa with the most subterranean water.
Interestingly, it also has one of the highest percentages of protected land over the international average.
Given the facts, it is the ideal place to travel! So much open space and endless landscapes as far as the eye can see. This is Namibia’s charm and it’s beyond beautiful for words. Namibia is the perfect getaway destination!
