NAMIBIA DREAMSCAPES PHOTO TOUR
We’ve been leading photo tours to Namibia since 2011 and built up partnerships, secret locations and special permissions second to none. This landscape focused tour even has 2 full days at a private lodge with some of the best desert/tree landscapes in the entire country that currently isn’t on any other photo tours itinerary. This Namibia Photo tour dedicated to the landscapes that make Namibia so unique and is timed for end of rain season when the land is at its most colourful, dramatic skies most likely and locations uncrowded.
When | 12- 21 March 2018
Group Size | Min 3 – max 6 participants (non-photographer travel partners are welcome). We keep our groups small for personalized attention and not to overcrowd locations
What You Can Expect Weather Wise | March is end of summer with hot sunny days that range from 25 °C to 35 °C+ (77-95F). It is also end of rain season most of which arrives in the form of localized, afternoon thunderstorms. And it’s these storms that can potentially produce skies second to none and make the rainy season the best time to visit for dramatic colourful imagery.
Level of Fitness | Easy to Moderate | Most locations are easy walking unless you wish to tackle the dunes. There is a 20 minute hike into Deadvlei over soft sand but it is mostly level with a short sandy uphill at the end.
Accommodation | A combination of comfortable 3* guest houses and 4* lodges strategically located for optimal photographic opportunities
You Will Have Special Photography Permits For Sunrise Entry To Ghost Town, Unique Permission For Evening Sky Deadvlei Shoot (Sossusvlei). And an Outstanding 2 Day Location That Is Not Currently Available On Any Other Photo Tour
