Namibia gained its final independence in 1990 after a long struggle for freedom, which started already in the German colonial era between 1884 and 1915. The South African Union occupied so-called German South West Africa during World War I and administered it as a mandate until after World War II, when it annexed the territory. From 1966 on the SWAPO (South West African People's Organisation) fought against the South African regime untill in 1988 the South Africans agreed to the UN Peace Plan.
According to newest statistics (09/06) Namibia is currently the fastest growing tourist market of Southern Africa. Similar to Botswana Namibia is trying to target mainly the high-class tourism market, but contrary to its neighbour Namibia can more or less easily be travelled by public transport. It is just taking some more time.
