Fish River Canyon
Far south in Namibia lies one of Africa’s best kept secrets without a doubt! The Fish River Canyon is the world’s second largest canyon and measures 160km in length, up to 27km in width and reaches a depth of 550m. Nothing quite prepares you for the size and vastness of the canyon, a surreal experience that offers endless photo opportunities.

Known as the “Sand Sea”, Sossusvlei is a sight not to be missed when visiting Namibia. The national park boasts towering waves of deep red sand as far as the eye can see and captures nature in its absolute purest and simplest form. Fascinating desert animals and plants have adapted to the harsh conditions and now thrive in this arid environment.
Experience the beauty first hand by climbing the dunes (Dune 45 and Big Daddy), although quite a challenging and sandy hike, the view from the top is unforgettable and really puts the size and vastness of the desert in perspective.
Deadvlei is another magnificent site to see in the area and is a photographer’s paradise. The contrasting colours of the white clay pan filled with dark, dead trees, surrounded by the deep red dunes and under the crisp blue skies is an unusual and spectacular sight.

NamibRand Nature Reserve
Capturing all facets of Namibia in one, NamibRand offers a visual utopia never seen before. The diversity in the park offers contrasting colours and shapes that leave you inspired. The reserve is rich with history, flora and fauna and unusual phenomenons like the fields of mysterious fairy circles.
Just outside the town of Luderitz lies the abandoned German mining town of Kolmanskop. A whole town trapped in time and swallowed up by the desert makes for the most unbelievable photos.
Founded in the 1900s the town was once a prosperous diamond mining community that lasted 40 years, now dilapidated and slowly being reclaimed by the sand. An eerie place with plenty of photo opportunities.
