Namibia Photography Safari with Nature Photography Adventures

August 15-26, 2014 - Full
August, 2017 - New Dates and Prices soon! - Contact us for details

Join us in this photographers’ paradise for our Namibia Photography Safari, which is bound to satisfy your landscape, wildlife, and people photography desires.

This safari has been timed and designed to keep us composing in a variety of ecological settings.  We will have great landscape photography opportunities all through this adventure.  We’ll look for unique desert-adapted wildlife amongst the dunes, in the pans, near waterholes, in wetlands, and along the shoreline.  And we’ll visit a beautiful and unspoiled semi-nomadic tribe, capturing their way of life and the exciting way they dress, still in the traditional fashions every day.

Our photographic journeys will take us to the Namib Desert, Sesriem Canyon, Sossusvlei, Namib Naukluft National Park, Baub Canyon, Kuiseb Canyon, Swakopmund, Walvis Bay Lagoon, Twyfelfontein Rock Engravings, Burnt Mountain, Organ Pipes, Aba Huab River Valley, Damaraland, Etosha National Park, a Himba settlement, Etosha Pan, Namibian Kalahari Desert, and Ongava Private Game Reserve.

Think Dunes!  Big towering dune fields.   Shifting sands in shades of burnt umber, amber and twilight grey, inhabited by ostrich, jackals and the beautiful oryx antelope which some believe are the original inspiration for the unicorn myth. And a balloon ride over the dunes at dawn!

Think wildlife – elephant, lion, giraffe, blue wildebeest, eland, kudu, oryx, zebra, rhino, cheetah, leopard, hyena, honey badger, warthog and black faced impala! These remarkable creatures have adapted to the harsh living conditions and we’ll find them in the dunes, along the shores and in and around the watering holes. There are also hundreds of species of birds, from colorful migrants to busy shorebirds to single vultures searching out a recent kill in the desert.

Canyons and rock formations.  Ghost forests created when the rivers were diverted by dunes.  Petroglyphs that “picture” the animals of Africa!  Elephants.  Giraffe.  Rhinos.  Lions.  Springbok.  Zebra.  Ostrich.  And more!

Think the Atlantic Coast of Africa!  We’ll position ourselves where we can look one way to the beach and another to incredible dunes!  Add a lagoon hosting many species of birds – and you have photographers in paradise. We'll also board a boat for a seal and dolphin photography cruise!

Think semi-nomadic tribes, living very much the way they did before encountering modern peoples.  Opportunities for amazing portraiture.  And to photograph a way of life that is difficult to comprehend without being there.

The Namibia Photography Safari weaves together so many great opportunities, your portable hard drives may well be full – but there’s more.

Stay on with us for a three day extension with the AfriCat Foundation.  This renowned conservation organization rescues and release big cats, especially leopards and cheetah – and we’ll be able to be up close and personal with our cameras as they work.  We’ll be tracking by vehicle, viewing in a “night hide”, and also photographing close-ups!

We have chosen Africa Safari Company of Seattle, Washington to coordinate our 2014 Namibia Photography Safari.
Our friend Julia is a real pleasure to work with and has given this adventure her own special touches.
