Wouldn't "ik houd van geografie" be acceptable as well?

Yes "geografie" is also acceptable as "aardrijkskunde" and "geografie" are synonymous. "Aardrijkskunde" though is the more commonly used term, at least in the Netherlands.

Is the literal meaning of "aardrijkskunde" "knowledge of the richness of the Earth"?
