About: The harsh & forbidden Sperrgebiet rediscovered

Namibia's Sperrgebiet has been a hidden secret for many years. Only a select few have been privileged to travel there. It is the Sperrgebiets environmental characteristics, its bio-diversity, its history, its fauna and wilderness landscapes, which forms the basis of the region's attraction to visitors. The Roter Kamm, Aurus and Klinghardt Mountain regions are of the most outstanding tourism areas of the Sperrgebiet where the whole spectrum of the diversity of the Sperrgebiet can be experienced. Think of an adventure, a journey to a distant land.

The beauty of this area is revealed by Sakkie and Theresa in an easy and comfortable style of writing in The harsh & forbidden Sperrgebiet rediscovered. This guide covers all that travellers can possibly want to know of the Sperrgebiet's past, present and future. The author's two years in the Sperrgebiet, their hobbies, love and knowledge of tourism, safaris, camping, angling, photography and Namibia's seasons and moods will take the traveller safely and easily through a mind-bending photographic journey as never portrayed before.
