    Namibia - Travel Video.
    DVD. 7 Days. 52 Minutes. Windhoek is the flourishing capital of Namibia and it is from here that we begin a journey through this country and experience some of the magic of the Dark Continent on a luxurious train - the Desert Express! Dating back to colonial times, the Christ Church is a reminder of the end of hostilities between the Germans and the indigenous population during the period when it was known as `German West Africa', and indeed German influence in this part of the world is still very much in evidence today. A short journey leads into the isolated loneliness of the prairie and to lion feeding at the Okapuka Ranch in which an Austrian keeps lions in their natural environment. A popular holiday resort on the mouth of the River Swakop and the final destination of the rail journey, Swakopmund, through whose harbor everything that was used in German West Africa was transported, resulting in a regular trading route between Swakopmund and Hamburg for more than 10 years - a hint of Germany on the edge of the desert! In Swakopmund there are architectural treasures that were rented out in the days of the Kaiser and are reminiscent of various houses in Berlin. This is a part of Germany that no longer exists in Germany itself. Moon Valley is bizarre and extra-terrestrial and for millions of years it has withstood the erosive power of the Swakop. With its deep-cut valleys and no vegetation in sight, the endless rocky landscape seems unfriendly, life threatening and impassable. Namutoni Camp is situated in the centre of the Etosha National Park and has a history that dates back to 1851. Thirsty antelopes and zebras rendezvous at a watering hole while a herd of elephants drink at another. Namibia is, quite rightly, a much sought after tourist destination. White deserts, wild animals, mountains strewn with ravines, and white beaches - Africa's south west is full of more than a few colorful surprises!

    DVD. Nature Parks The arid landscape of the Namib-Naukluft Park in the heart of Namibiabetween the river valleys of the Swakop and Kuiseb, vast fields of scree cover the majority of this 50,000 square kilometre conservation area. The remote world of stone and rock seems so strange and unreal that one of the valleys in this region is called Moon Valley. Further into the Namib Desert, the colors of the surrounding landscape grow more intense. It is as though both earth and sky are competing against each other to see who shines brightest. The majestic and world famous blazing red dunes of Sossusvlei tower more than 300 metres over the landscape. In this extremely hot, arid and treacherous ocean of sand, even the trees seem to have given up their struggle for survival. Most of the waterholes have dried out and now this region's wildlife must prepare for yet another period of interminable draught. The impressive yet strangely formed Kokerboom, or 'Quiver Tree', is in reality not a tree at all but a high growing variety of the aloe plant. The name of the plant comes from the bushmen who made quivers for their arrows from its large branches. The Kokerboom, acacias and various low-growing varieties of bush make up the characteristic vegetation of the region. At the end of the day, the fiery sky seems to emulate the warm red colous of the mighty sand dunes and amid the beautiful scenery, the magnificent world of the Namib Naukluft Park gradually merges with the intense glow of sunset. <font size="3" color="#800000" face="Arial" align="center"

    Namib Desert: Africa's Hostile Dunes - Travel Video.
    VHS. National Geographic. Review: "Who could have thought that so much life could be found in such a presumably 'dead' place. Once again, The National Geographic Society has reveal to us a beautiful and fragile ecosystem that needs and deserves to be protected. This video made me want to go and visit the Namib Desert myself just to see the diversity of animal and plant life that is there. How they are able to film such activity by animals and plants - their patience and timing - just amazes me. This video is well worth watching!" 60 minutes.

    Creatures of the Namib Desert - Travel Video.
    VHS. National Geographic. For hundreds of thousands of years, the sun's rays have baked the Namib Desert in southwestern Africa, where ground temperatures reach up to 170F. Narrated by Burgess Meredith, this acclaimed program takes a fascinating look at the desert's vast wilderness of sand, sea and open spaces where nature has learned to adapt and flourish. The word Namib is thought to mean "emptiness," but the Namib Desert is not empty at all--there is life in the endless expanse of wind and sand. In this southwest African coastal desert, an area 1,300 miles long and 50 to 100 miles wide, creatures have learned to adapt to some of the most extreme conditions in the world. Plants and bugs, lizards, and snakes procure their only source of moisture from the fog, and even that is scarce. The sand lizard, one of 45 species of lizard in the Namib, lifts each foot alternately so as not to scorch its feet on ground that easily reaches 170 degrees Fahrenheit. In 1963 a research institute was founded in the desert to study the rare species and perhaps solve riddles of evolutionary relationships. This video uses the scientists and their research as the focal point and emphasizes insects perhaps more than anything else (there are 200 species of beetles in the Namib alone), though you will also see baboons, ostriches, and reptiles, among other animals. Highlights include the birth of a sidewinder snake, a father sand grouse bringing his family water from 50 miles away, barking geckoes, a spider cart-wheeling down a dune to avoid a female wasp (unfortunately his escape is short-lived), and the landscape itself, which is breathtaking. 60 minutes

    African Wildlife - Travel Video.
    VHS. National Geographic. Witness the realities of birth, death and survival in this vivid encounter with the animal world. "African Wildlife" was filmed in Namibia's Etosha National Park over the course of two years, capturing extraordinary close-ups of animal behavior: a wildebeest giving birth, a zebra mother successfully defending her foal from the swift attack of a cheetah, and a young springbuck alerting his herd to the presence of a predator with stiff-legged leaps. Includes gorgeously spectacular nature footage, much of it shot at shockingly close range. This video takes a relaxed look at a wide selection of wildlife, including zebras, cheetahs, wildebeest, lions, and elephants. The goal is to show all facets of animal life, and scenes of violent encounters between species are balanced with touching scenes of young animals at play. In one stunning sequence, a wildebeest is shown giving birth. Her calf soon stands and takes his first wobbly steps, the informative narration noting that by the end of the day he'll "be running with the herd." Rare footage of a lioness teaching her cubs to finish off a wild pig she has wounded is riveting, as it shows graphically how the lioness will not assist so that her cubs, clumsy though they are, will learn to kill on their own. This video would be worth watching just for the exquisite cinematography, but its thoughtful organization and intelligent narration make it both a visual treat and an education in how animals really live on the African plains. 60 minutes
