Namibia

Even if you’ve been to Africa before, Namibia is not like it. Of course, it’s all about Africa, but the landscapes you can find here, you won’t find anywhere else. Here you can find one of the oldest deserts in the world, the world’s highest dunes, wildlife that has perfectly adapted to this dry climate and much more. Our photo tour through Namibia touches upon some of the classical destinations, but they are not to be missed. Sossusvlei or Etosha must be seen and photographed even if many have gone there before. Etosha is a prime wildlife destination in Africa with a unique landscape. The dunes in Sossusvlei will stun you with their height and their red sand.
Here you can have a true adventure by driving on roads made of salt, you can see trees that have been dead for more than six centuries, flamingos in the Atlantic ocean and much more.

What equipment did I use for this tour? Normally when we think of wildlife photography we think of very long lenses. Lenses with a long focal length (more than 300 mm) are definitely very useful, because they bring you ‘closer’ to the wildlife you’re photographing. This is especially true in National Parks, where you’re not […]
