Namibia: the wilderness exposed

From Germany, photographer Michael Poliza has photographed barren and remote landscapes around the world. Released in 2006, his first book AFRICA, published by teNeues, captured the continent's striking landscapes and Poliza has continued to photograph the region. This gallery showcases some of his striking pictures of Namibia. Travellers wishing to follow in his footsteps can now participate in nature travel tours he has organised with German travel brand TUI. Picture: Michael Poliza

9 "Dangerous" Places That Are Actually Safe to Visit

NAMIBIA: My friends are incredulous that I would risk exposure to Ebola in Namibia, but the truth is, I'm safer there (no cases reported) than in the U.S., where ten people have been treated for the disease. The odds of Namibia encountering an outbreak are next to zero: It's the second least populous country in the world and nearly 3,000 miles from Guinea. It's also silly to avoid South Africa, Kenya, and other countries just because they happen to be in Africa. —Priscilla Eakeley
