10: Windhoek, Namibia | Namibia is in southern Africa and borders The Atlantic Ocean, Angola, Zambia, Botswana, and South Africa. Namibia is geographically split into five regions: the Central Plateau, the Namib Desert, the Great Escarpment, the Bushveld, and the Kalahari Desert where I spent most of my time. Windhoek is the capital of Namibia and contains all major social, economic, and cultural centers. The population has grown to over 300,000 recently. It is also the first and only “green” city on the continent of Africa.
