Namibia: The Big Empty, pt. 3

Part 3 of my video Namibia: The Big Empty has some nice aerials of something called, Fairy Circles,” a rather unique feature of the Namibia landscape that looks as if it were painted by space aliens using the desert as their canvas.  We also fly along the skeleton coast and get a good sense of how it got its name. In this video we also land at the Cape Cross Fur Seal colony, the world’s largest fur seal colony.  You’ll see and hear some 100,000 seals on the beach, but since this is a video you will be spared having to smell the pungent odor of 100,000 marine mammals.  This week on “National Geographic Weekend” we talk about getting the big picture on, “The Big Empty.”
