Nothing delights the lens like striking contrasts, and Namibia serves these up in abundance — vibrant landscapes, captivating wildlife and fascinating people.

Marvel at one of the world’s greatest wildlife locations – Etosha National Park. Amazing photo opportunities are everywhere you turn, with BIG GAME from the giant ghosts of Etosha, its pale coloured bull elephants to great rhino, numerous giraffe, thousands of zebra, kudu, impala, springbok and beautiful bird life – the list is too long!

Darran is one of the worlds most experienced photo guides in this region. He guarantees to maximise your experiences and shoot opportunities and works hard with our local expert guides to find big cats and unique game and birds that a standard tour would miss. This is why we have had several photographers return more than once on our Namibia tours.

DAY 1 – WINDHOEK
May 3

The tour starts today at beautiful Galton House at 3pm. Meet your fellow travellers, followed by a workshop to maximise your photo adventures to come. We enjoy our first group dinner tonight. The accommodation and meals are fantastic!
Accommodation: 4 Star Guest House – (B,L,D)

DAY 2 – WINDHOEK TO OKAUKUEJO – ETOSHA NP
May 4

We depart Windhoek this morning at 10am and fly by private charter to Anderson’s Gate – just outside of Etosha. How exciting, before lunch you are in BIG GAME country! Our special game vehicles are waiting for us. We then drive just 30km’s to Okaukuejo and our first base for two nights. After lunch, we book into our Bungalow’s and soon after, head out for our first game drive.

Our past tours to this region have offered such unique imagery and experiences that have had some customers return with us 3 times! Etosha is home to 114 mammal and some 340 bird species. It houses large numbers of globally endangered or threatened species, most notably, black rhinoceros and African elephant. Look out for lions and giraffe. The late light is fantastic!
Accommodation: 3 Star Okaukuejo, Bungalow. (B,L,D)

DAY 3 – OKAUKUEJO (ETOSHA NP )
May 5

Two full days in this section of the park for stunning wildlife experiences and images. While we have a huge diversity of subjects to shoot, a key target will be young animals, from lions to elephants. You will appreciate the quality time ‘hunting for game’ with our very experienced local expert guides. All of this in 360 degree shooting, pop top vehicles. We mix each day retracing some tracks and exploring new tracks. Your photo guide is super experienced and will help you with the best technical information and work with the local guides for outstanding shoots. Okaukuejo is located 17 km from the western entrance of the park, and famous for its flood-lit water hole, where visitors can observe at close quarters, a spectacle of wildlife congregating and interacting. Like the previous night, you can enjoy the night life at this ‘local waterhole’. Last tour included regular visits by lion. Because of its size, the park serves as a genetic reserve for various species of animals and plants. Other facilities include a restaurant, bar, shop, swimming pool, and kiosk.
Accommodation: 3 Star Okaukuejo, Bungalow. (B,L,D)

DAY 4 – OKAUKUEJO TO HALALI (ETOSHA NP )
May 6

After an early breakfast, we head east through Etosha to Halali, continuing our game drives. A chance for all sorts of new subjects and possibly leopard or cheetah. Halali is our base for tonight. Leopard are one of the hardest creatures to find. Halali to Namutoni will offer us our best chance to shoot this elusive big cat. Late afternoon game drive to new water holes. Expect, the unexpected …
Accommodation: 3 Star Halali, Bungalow. (B,L,D)

DAY 5 – HALALI (ETOSHA NP )
May 7

Full day game drives using Halali as a base. The quality time here will allow our group to maximise looking for big cats, but also for large numbers of plains game like zebra, springbok
and perhaps a bat-eared fox or similar rare creature.
Accommodation: 3 Star Halali, Bungalow. (B,L,D

DAY 6 – HALALI TO NAMUTONI (ETOSHA NP )
May 8

We are still in Etosha NP and heading further east. This new region opens up new water holes and new opportunities as we game drive. It is perhaps the best region for leopard in the park – keep yours eyes peeled on the bush! Each water hole is different and some are so good that we will revisit more than once. Outstanding elephant, kudu, impala and rhino sightings will fill your cards. Your professional photo guides will maximise the many unique photo shoots.
Accommodation: 3 star Bungalow. (B,L,D)

DAY 7 – NAMUTONI (ETOSHA NP )
May 9

Full day of game drives, starting early and finishing late, with a siesta in the middle of the day to relax. This is our last full day in the park. You will be able to shoot new species and animals in new situations. You will be amazed at how many thousands of images you have shot to date! Again, your photography guides will be helping you, including our mini workshops that we run as time allows.
Accommodation: 3 star Bungalow. (B,L,D)

DAY 8 – NAMUTONI TO OKONJIMA
May 10

After a final game drive and breakfast, we depart to Otjiwarongo and AfriCat, a private game reserve. AfriCat offers the chance to experience cheetah up close and perhaps a special shoot that we can only confirm and mention at the location. The accommodation is beautiful and the location so special. Sundowners are a special treat tonight.
Accommodation: 4 Star Okonjima. (B,L,D)

DAY 9 – OKONJIMA TO WINDHOEK

Unique morning game drive looking for leopard. We can drive off track and search for the reserves 36 odd big cats.

After our morning game drive, we depart to Windhoek, stopping at markets and enjoying lunch. On arrival in Windhoek, we book into Galton House. Final group dinner tonight and a few talk stories.
