Namibia Photography Tour

It’s with great excitement that I announcement my next Namibia photography tour!  Namibia is easily one of my top 3 favourite countries for travel and just a brilliant place to be a photographer.  This trip will take us to some of the most photogenic places in the country and showcase some of the world’s most stunning sights.  Locations like Sossusvlei, and Etosha National Park are all on the schedule.  Of all the trips I run regularly, this might be the one I’m most looking forward to.

This trip is a mix of adventure and a classic trip. And it’s going to be an amazing experience overall.

Dates: October 1 – 13, 2024
Price: €4400
Style: Classic / Adventure
Activity Level: Minimal
Start/End Location: Windhoek, Namibia

What Style is This Namibia Photography Tour?

Normally my photography tours fall into one of four categories.  However, due to the nature of Namibia, this photo tour is actually going to straddle both the adventure and classic styles.  

We’ll be travelling in an enclosed 4×4 safari vehicle. It’s the best way to see the country.

The accommodation we stay at in Namibia is nice and comfortable. We aren’t camping at all this year, and will have electricity the whole way. So, the adventure lies in the journey. Namibia is full of bumpy, dusty roads, and desolation. It makes for incredible stories.

What is The Vehicle Style in Namibia

We’ll have private 4x4s the whole trip. We’ve hired out 2 – 7 seater Land Cruisers like the one pictured below.

We’ll be 5 participants in each vehicle, so you’ll always have a window.  Moreover, the vehicles have a pop top, so you’ll be able to climb up and take photos open air while on safari.

The Accommodation 

There is no camping anymore on this trip. At Sossusvlei we’ll be at the beautiful Sossus Dune Lodge which is inside the gates.

Our lodges are nice. But there is a range. We’ll stay in a couple 3-star accommodations, and some that are absolute luxury.
