Namibia is home to diverse wildlife, including a significant cheetah population. The capital, Windhoek, and coastal town Swakopmund contain German colonial-era buildings such as Windhoek's Christuskirche, built in 1907.
In the north, Etosha National Park's salt pan draws game including rhinos and giraffes. Its western border is the Atlantic Ocean; it shares land borders with Zambia and Angola to the north, Botswana to the east, and South Africa to the south and east. The driest country in Sub-Saharan Africa, Namibia has been inhabited since early times by the San, Damara and Nama people.
