Namibia is one of the most photogenic countries in Africa, boasting stunning desert scenery, amazing wildlife, harsh coatline, deserted historic towns as well as some incredibly traditional tribes. It also has the largest canyon in Africa, in the Fish River Canyon.

I have visited Namibia a number of times, and have crafted thins itinerary to take in the very best that this country has to offer. We will be travelling in a comfortable safari vehicle, which will be large enough that we can each have access to a window. We will also be staying in some very comfortable accommodation, which will offer us unique access to some of the sights we will see along the way.

We will start in the capital Windhoek, before driving on to the Fish River Canyon, via the Quiver Tree forest at Keetmanshoop. After photographing the Canyon, we will take the long at atmospheric drive to the coast at Luderitz, our base for a couple of nights as we explore the former diamond rush town of Kolmanskop, that is gradually being swallowed up by the encroaching desert sands.

We then head back into the interior to reach the famed dunes and vleis of Sosussvlei. Here we stay at an excellent camp, that will give us special access to the site at sunrise and sunset. If you stay outside of the park, this is practically impossible! Here we will have the chance to climb various massive dunes, and also explore the vleis, or dried pans - especially the achingly photogenic Dead Vlei.

From Sosussvlei we head back to the Skeleton Coast and the very Teutonic town of Swakopmund. We should have the chance to photograph both flamingoes and fur seal colonies as we explore the area (and hopefully tuck into the odd Gemsbok Schnitzel).

Our journey continues to the North, along the Skeleton Coast, to Damaraland. In tis remote part of the country, we will look of the rare desert elephant, as well as visit a traditional village of the Himba people who still live very traditional lives.

One of the highlights of the country is the Etosha National Park. I love this place, especially the public camp at Okaukuejo. The last time I was here, I saw ten Black Rhino in one night at the camp floodlit waterhole. It is not the most luxurious camp you will ever stay at, but in my two visits, I would assert that it is arguably the best floodlit waterhole in Africa! We spend two nights here, and will explore the park during the day!

We end up our adventure by returning to the capital of Windhoek, where you can enjoy a couple more days in Africa, or catch your flight back home.

We have also radically changed our teaching schedules on our trips; and will be setting setting more projects and providing opportunities for more individual image critiques as well as our usual series of illustrated talks, group practical sessions and image reviews. Our aim is to help you to learn more about photography, and come back with more fantastic images than you ever thought possible, as well as engaging with this fascinating part of Africa!
