I am particularly happy to finally be able to announce our first photographic safari in Namibia. After visiting the country in 2014 we have been wanting to offer this trip to our guests. Namibia is a fascinating country, with amazing sceneries and deserts inhabited by wildlife. The habitat is completely different from East Africa. Here, Elephants, Giraffes, Lions, Zebras, Rhinos among many others roam through desert landscapes, dunes, rocky outcrops, and dry river beds. Obivously the concentration of animals here cannot compare to that of the plains of East Africa, where food is abundant year-round. But the majesty and the drama of the habitat provides a really stunning backdrop for the animals.
For this trip we decided to concentrate on the deserts, leaving out the most famous park in Namibia, Etosha. We felt that the real peculiarity of this country lies in its deserts and the wildlife that has adapted to survive in them.
The trip will last two weeks, starting and finishing in the capital city Windhoek. We will spend ten days in the Kaokoland, in four different locations. We will maintain a flexible approach here. Should we hear that wildlife sightings in one of the four areas are not particularly good at the moment of the trip, we will be free to spend more days in the other three places to maximize our photo opportunities. Due to the scarcity of food in these areas, wildlife here is highly mobile. We will finish with four days in the bigger dunes in the world, around Sossusvlei. Here we’ll concentrate on the wildlife that lives on the dunes, but we will also photograph the famous Deadvlei, with its stark dead trees in the heart of the desert.
The trip will start on October 12th 2017 and will end on October 26th 2017. Here you can find more information. Feel free to contact us for more information and for the complete detailed program. We look forward to explore the deserts of Namibia with you!
