Nothing delights the lens like striking contrasts of landscapes and nature, and Namibia serves these up in abundance — vibrant landscapes, captivating wildlife and fascinating people. Marvel at the world’s highest sand dunes at Sossusvlei and the wilderness of the Namib desert and coast. We also include a special Quiver Tree shoot! Explore old ghost towns that are disappearing into the desert. The accommodation on this tour is beautiful 4 Star, or the best accommodation available! Namibia is one of the safest countries in all of Africa. Its people are super friendly.

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 the best angles in rarely visited landscape locations. He also adds special subjects to shoot that no other tour offers. This is why we have had several photographers return more than once on our Namibia tours.

These are very creative and will offer you stunning images and challenging angles in the late light. Your professional photo guides will help you to see new angles and try new techniques.

“After over 40 visits to the dunes, I still look forward to my next! Angles are only limited by your imagination and I will be on hand to maximise your opportunities.” Darran

We spend lunch back at camp, downloading and charging. The afternoon includes another chance to explore the world’s most stunning sand dunes. We visit Deadvlei as well for more creative images. This is a truly unique landscape and nature experience! The 700 year old mummified trees are in stark contrast to the dunes.
