Namibia Photo Tour - April 2015

 

Namibia is a photographer's dream - it boasts incredible landscapes, rugged mountains, lonely deserts, stunning wildlife and vast vistas for everyone to enjoy.  During our Photo Tour we will visit the wildlife-rich Etosha National Park, dune fields and desert plains as well as a unique Himba Tribe.  We will take stunning photos of giant sand dunes in Sossusvlei, lions stalking their prey on Etosha's never ending plain, famous red sand dunes at Sossusvlei, or photos of the night sky in Deadvlei so thick with stars you can't differentiate between constellations

 

The sublime sunsets are only one of the many natural wonders that will draw you to Namibia. Namibia isn’t pleasant; it is overwhelming. The silent beauty of its landscapes and the meeting of ever smiling kids from local tribes will penetrate your heart and soul.
