Namibia even the name evokes images of the exotic. It is a country of stark beauty, a country where cheetahs and elephants roam free and ochre skinned Himba tribes still live tribal lifestyles.
What You Can Expect Weather Wise: September is hot with sunny days that range 25 to 35 °C+ (77-95F). Every day is basically guaranteed to be a blue sky day but it can be windy and very dusty. Rain is unlikely but with climate change anything is possible we have seen beautiful colorful cloudy sunsets in September too. The end of dry season is the best time to photograph wildlife
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/lodges strategically located for optimal photographic opportunities
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.
