NAMIBIA – Iconic Locations and Diverse Wildlife – Photo Workshop, April 2024
October 10, 2023
The Land of Photographic Wonders
Namibia is home to some of our planet’s most breathtaking landscapes. During our journey, we will visit and photograph the best landscape locations Namibia has to offer. We also will take an introduction to the country’s diverse wildlife.Situated along the far western edge of southern Africa, Namibia’s territory is larger than that of both Great Britain and France combined. With a huge territory, a few roads, an extremely sparse population, and main points of interest far from each other, Namibia is a logistic puzzle. Working over the years with local guides, we have designed a very efficient and smooth itinerary, covering the best that Namibia offers. Days will be long and productive, and with a small group, you can expect plenty of instruction in the field.
