Photo Safari Tour
ETOSHA NATIONAL PARK
Starting from Kalahari Basin we will pick up all our photographers in Windhoek and we will drive to the north of Namibia crossing the awesome Etosha National Park where we start our photo safari.
It is the gateway to Nothern Namibia and Ovamboland, the prime wild life location, “home” for a large variety of mammals and birds. The name “Etosha” means in the tribe’s Ovambo language “great white area” because of the large dried pan in the middle of the Park. What makes this Park unique are the large pools of water that attract thousands of flamingos….A unique spactacle in the world and a dream for every photographer. It is dominated by a massive mineral Pan. The Pan is part of the Kalahari Basin, or Kalahari Depression, a large lowland area covering most of Botswana and parts of Namibia, South Africa, Angola, Zambia and Zimbabwe. The Pan covers around 25% of the N.P. Originally, around 1000 million years ago, was a lake by the Kuene River. However the course of the river changed and the lake dried up. Now is a large dusty depression of wading birds, including impressive flocks of Flamingos. The perennial springs along the edges of the Etosha Pan draw large concentrations of wild life and birs.
There we will stop to shoot images of incredible wildlife, choosing the best spot in this place, thanks to our guide photographer thath know all the area. In Etosha NP we could photo-shoot many animals: diffrent buck species, rhino, lion, elephant, giraffe, wildebeest, cheetah, hyena, zebra, springbok, kudu, gemsbok and eland….if we have fortune maybe leopards.
The photo tour in Namibia will continue travelling to Kaokoland, to north direction, reaching Epupa falls where Kunene river offer a spectacular view between Namibia and Angola border.
Here we will meet the first Himba tribe, surnamed “the Red People”. It is a semi-nomadic population dedicated to pastoralism.
Famous are the women of this people considered “Beautiful as Statues”. The body and hair are painted with ointments based on ocher powder, aromatic herbs and goat butter. This mix give them a reddish color, making them resemble, in fact, to “Terracotta Statues”.
This first meeting is more touristy because this settlement is close to the services and accustomed to contact with “ the white man”. It will be interesting take some portrait with a beautiful background.
VAN ZYL'S PASS;
After two days of relax and photo shooting, we will travel to reach Marienfluss valley to the extreme north in west direction...Nobody else will offer you this exclusive photo tour driving throught Van Zyl's Pass, an extreme 4x4 challeng, because is one the highest roads of the country. Van Zyl's Pass , at an elevatione of 948m above the sea level, is a classic extreme road, not really a road, just a route made over the mountain by travellers over time. During this excursion we can discover others Himba tribes, the most authentic and wilderness…..far away from the touristic routes! They will be really friendly and happy to meet us.
We will spend the right time for the best photographic workshop with them, living one of the best experience during this travel to Namibia: an exclusive adventure full of emotions, breathing the authentic atmosphere around us.
Because of this route is not convenient for traditional agencies only few people have the chance to live this exclusive experience, thanks to personal ties tightened by our guides that reciprocate the privilege of this welcome bringing supplies, medicines and food.
This off-road trip throught Van Zyl's Pass will lead us to the Marienfluss Valley, extreme north west to Angola border, in Kunene region. Area with an unique landscape that we can find only in this region of Namibia.
SKELETON COAST PARK
We will travel by our 4x4 vehicle along the east border of the Skeleton Coast Park - Hoanib river, crossing extreme areas with incredible sharm and stunning landscape. The charme of this remote area is due to its almost lunar landscape, with dunes that change shape depending on the wind, the canyons, the fog on the coast, the cold sea breeze and the wreks scattered on the beaches, from which the name of the park originates. Thi area is particularly wild and interesting for Oryx passages.
We will continue our photo tour driving in to the sand of Hoarusib River and crossing the desert directly to Hoanib River. One more amazing experience that will give us unforgettable moment and incredibles photos. In this area we will see desert animals like orix, elephant, black rhino, giraffes and if we will be lucky also lions and cheetahs on the sand!
We will cross the most important and not touristic locations, where no agency offer this photographic tour becouse the logistic organizzation could be too expencive. We think you can't leave Namibia without crossing this stunning places.
Damaraland will be the next stop of our photo tour , travelling throught the beautiful landscapes. After this firsts days of our photo tour in Namibia we will travel to south, driving along the coast to reach others stunning landscape. We will stop to Cape Cross in time for our photo workshop shooting images to the sea lions with the best light of the afternoon.
This photo tour restarting to reach Swakopmund, a nice town on the coast where spend some time to shopping and relaxing a bit, visit the old town and enjoy the night life. Swakopmund will be our base to visit the beautiful Walvis Bay lagoon, famous for the flamingos colony. In Walvis Bay we can get many interesting images, during sunrise and sunset with the best light.
Our photo trip restart entering in to the Namib Desert, the last but not less important location of our photo tour in Namibia. The name “Namib” means in Nama language “Immense”…it is considered the oldest desert in the world. ...…Infinite expanse, magical and unique in the world, of landscapes that transport you to the place of unforgettable emotions, silences and scenarios that seem to belong to another planet or to the origins of the world…Imposing Dunes with color tones range from Yellow, apricot, orange, ocher, red and gold. They are transformed into the continuous dance between light and wind, framed by a blue porcelain sky or by the burning sunset. You can not describe the amazement of the eyes and the soul that arouses the sudden vision, among these red giants, of a surreal place from which phantoms rise, dozens of fossilized trees….whose dark and dry trunks look like sculptures that stand out against the bottom of an unlikely “white lake” surrounded by red, creating a spooky scenery. We will spend some time on the heart of this desert to shoot the last images of our adventure enjoying the nice view of this incredible place.
