About: Namib Flora. Swakopmund to the Giant Welwitschia via Goanikontes

Plants in arid areas may differ in appearance not only from those in less arid areas, but they themselves also vary from year to year depending on climatic conditions. A fair number and variety of indigenous plants can be found in the Namib, especially in good rain years. Alien plants are common in the bed of the Swakop River. Some of these will be described as they are very much part of the vegetation of the area. Most plant characteristics are illustrated, therefore botanical terminology has been kept to a minimum, with explanatory notes in the text or the glossary. The ideal time to look for plants is in the early morning. The colours of the desert landscape are at their best before the heat of the day.
