Namibia

Wedged between the Kalahari and the South Atlantic, Namibia is the youngest country in Africa. With its striking diversity of cultures and origins, it is a photographer’s delight – wild seascapes, rugged mountains, lonely deserts, stunning wildlife, colonial cities with histories both bold and bloody. Drive across world’s grandest national parks, ranging from the wildlife-rich Etosha National park to the desert plains of the Namib-Naukluft Park.

September- April

It’s hard to imagine a visually dramatic experience each day where landscapes collide and time and space are less defined.

Wedged between the Kalahari and the South Atlantic, Namibia is the youngest country in Africa. With its striking diversity of cultures and origins, it is a photographer’s delight – wild seascapes, rugged mountains, lonely deserts, stunning wildlife, colonial cities … with the world’s grandest national parks, ranging from the wildlife-rich Etosha National park to the desert plains of the Namib-Naukluft Park.

Namibia houses the Namib Desert and the coastal plains in the west, the sloping Central Plateau in the East and the Kalahari along the borders and the densely wooded bushveld of the Kavango and Caprivi regions. The grandest national parks from the wildlife-rich Etosha National Park and the Ongava Game reserve to the dune fields and desert plains of the Namib-Naukluft Park and the Central Highlands with an ethnic mix of people. Surfers and sand boarders love Swakopmund.

From the leopards and cheetahs at the Okonjima Nature reserve run by the Africat foundation where the conservation of carnivores are maintained to rhino tracking in Damaraland and the Grootberg plateau in the Klip river valley, each day unfolds landscapes like no other.

Traverse the melodic Twyfelfontein in which wild elephants unveil a natural drama and rock cut cliffs are a reminder of history. Swakopmund is a small sea-side town of bizarre German colonial architecture . A gateway to Walvis Bay and Sandwich harbour, it allows an immense experience of pelicans, dolphins, sea gulls, whales and leatherback turtles, all while sipping sparkling wine and eating oysters at sea.

The grand finale in Namibia is the visit to Sossusvlei and the dramatic sight of Deadvlei with its camelthorn trees and dead white floor from the top of Big Daddy. While walking up in a trudge, walking down is a dance.

Time and space disappear in Namibia where landscapes are powerful as are the experiences with them.
