‘Captivating landscape, wide open space, romantic desert scenes, abundant game ... the harshest paradise in Africa’, says the Namibia Tourist Official Guide, and this is no exaggeration.

Our six-week visit to Namibia was mainly about photography and wildlife. The first couple of weeks was in the central savannah area towards the north.
It is at fairly high altitude, with a mixture of plains and mountains. After Etosha National Park, we turned south and travelled through the semi-arid Damaraland and then along the Skeleton Coast through to the Namib desert, part of the much bigger Namib Naukluft Park. Our southernmost point was Fish River Canyon, after which we worked our way back north to Windhoek via the western edge of the Kalahari desert. Finally, we joined a fly-in Safari tour for 4 days to get a different perspective on the Skeleton Coast and visit some of the really inaccessible north-western parts.

Namibia is really a photographer’s dream. We took over 7,000 pictures. Luckily we are in the digital era now so we could edit the photos on the road. We deleted them down to 2,000 and a few hundred on this website. We hope you enjoy them and maybe one day, you will visit this amazing place. You should.
