Namibia boasts remarkable natural attractions such as the Namib desert, the Fish River Canyon, Etosha National Park and the Kalahari desert. Its people speak nine different languages, including some of the Khoisan languages which include the ‘clicks’ that present an enigma to most native English-speakers. Namibia produces some of the world’s highest quality diamonds.
Namibia is a very diverse country with an array of habitats and vegetation. It is also one of the few countries where animals still roam freely, for the most part unrestricted by human influence.
Namibia has a great mix of desert, semi-desert and savannahs. As you travel further north you will find Etosha National Park, which offers visitors a complete contrast: wide open grasslands dotted with large camel thorn and Mopani trees, and a massive pan that covers 4731km², with waterholes that allow an abundance of wildlife to thrive.
The landscapes and the vast Etosha Pan are highlights for any photographer and many keen photographers visit Namibia looking to enhance their skills and photo-library. In winter, the waterholes offer a unique opportunity to sit and wait for your subjects to come to you and the waterholes that surround the camps ensure that you are never left without something to photograph. Photographing animal silhouettes crossing the vast pan takes patience and a bit of luck, but the outcome is something unique to Etosha National Park.
