A Namibian Diamond Adventure: Fall 2007



The brochure said it all: “Join us for an adventure of a lifetime. Spend two weeks in Namibia, a country of striking scenery, exotic animals, and wonderful minerals. The unique Namib Desert boasts the highest sand dunes in the world. Etosha, an expansive dry pan surrounded by grassland and woodland habitats, is one of the most important game reserves in Africa. Namibia’s mineral deposits-—Tsumeb, Erongo, Brandberg, Klein Spitzkoppe, and others—are world renowned for their exceptional specimens.” Twenty-one excited mineral enthusiasts from across the United States registered for the Namibian Mineral Safari that included visits to these destinations, plus the Kalahari manganese field of South Africa.
