Wonderful Namibia

 

Covering the Past

 

The rather contemplative is the capital of Namibia, still marked by colonial past, which the Germans shaped significantly from 1885 to 1915. Not only the Kaiserstraße, the Allgemeine Zeitung in Windhoek or the many farms of the German descendants speak volumes about Namibia, but also the unresolved history of the genocide of the Nama and Herero people. Nobody knows whether the Germans who are still in the country are hated or loved.

Seeheim seems sleepy, but the line to Lüderitz via Schakalskuppe (Karas) was one of the first functioning railway lines in Africa, which was 318 km long.

The best way to explore Namibia is by plane. By looking at the desert, one sees an almost unreal beautiful landscape that somehow appears to be extraterrestrial.

The Namib has an extraordinary beauty, with valleys, waves and dunes formed of sand.

Everywhere are diamond mining fields and abandoned mining settlements from the decades before. Long before De Beers or Anglo came. (Kolmanskop)

Of course, up in the north, the wildlife is the icing on the cake during the visit to Namibia. Etosha Pan is one of the few paradises in the world. Towards Botswana, one can encounter life in its most pristine and natural form.

That rhino better not meet resistance. The earth trembles when such a colossus is set in motion.

Generations of South African soldiers passed through in the Casspir Angola, in the "Bush War" or "upon the border" (Grensoorlog in Afrikaans) In fact, the sophisticated technology of the days saved the lives of very many soldiers. Here one of the exhibits, probably the 1985 model, was used as a trolley on rails. After Namibia's independence from South Africa, much of the material was left behind.

A film about the Casspir and the conflict in Angola. Unfortunately, the tank was also used at the SAP as an anti-riot tank in the end times of the Apartheid.
