Namibia Photo Gallery
Our collection of safari images and photographs from across this amazingly photogenic country of Namibia including the highlights of the Namib Desert, Sossusvlei, Sesriem, Skeleton Coast and of course Etosha.
In a nutshell, travel in Namibia is more of a scenic/ landscape photography destination, it is only up north (Etosha and the Caprivi Strip) where fantastic wildlife sightings can be photographed. The rest of the country is more of a point, frame and shoot destination with limited desert-adapted wildlife and birdlife found every now and again.
A fun aspect of Namibia and photography is that one does not need to be talented in any way, shape or form. One does not need the latest and most expensive cameras and lenses. Namibia is so spectacular that a simple camera setup or a modern cellphone will do just fine. A lot of images in the below galleries were captured using a Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and old DLSR's with kit lenses.

Namibia Safari Images
Epupa Falls Photos
Epupa Falls image and photograph gallery from a recent visit to this amazing region in the far far north of Namibia. Explore and experience the Kunene River, The Epupa Falls, the birdlife, the surrounding mountains and the Himba culture.
We highly recommended a few nights here.
Himba Village Photos
Himba Village images and photographs from a culture option that many of lodge offers in the northern region of the country.
A cultural tour that offers up an insight into one of Africa's true last nomadic cultures that are still living their lives as they did hundreds of years ago with little to non-European influence.
Hoanib River Valley Photos
The journey down Hoanib River Valley is nothing short of spectacular, the river bed, the mountains, the tracks crisscrossing each other, the sheer cliffs, those photographic acacia trees, literally every twist and corner offers something different.
For us, it was a bucket list item that finally got ticked off the ever-expanding list.
Hoarusib River Valley Photos
Images and impressions of Namibia's famed Hoarusib River Valley, a valley that offers remoteness, mountain ranges, sheer cliffs, narrow canyons, flowing streams and of course desert elephants.
Combine the Hoarusib River Valley with a venture down the Hoanib River and one is in for an amazing safari.
Kunene River Photos
Kunene River photos and thoughts on a destination that is as far north as one can possibly travel in Namibia, an attraction that snakes between mountain ranges and deserts dunes along for over a 1000 kilometres.
A visit to the Kunene River is well worth the effort in our humble opinions.
Orange River Photos
A small photo gallery of the C13 road that is found on the northern banks of the Orange River, a road that is spectacular in terms of scenery as one drives through valleys, mountain ranges and over mountain passes.
This route is often overlooked by those travel to Namibia from Cape Town, and it should most certainly not be as it is spectacular.
Solitaire Namibia Photos
Solitaire Namibia is famed for, believe it or not, apple-pie, yes, some of the best apple-pie in Namibia is waiting for you literally in the middle of nowhere.
But it is not only apple-pie that Solitaire offers, but it is also a toilet stop, fix a tyre, get some petrol and stretch those legs, it should be a criminal offence not to stop at Solitaire.
The Spitzkoppe in Namibia is a collection of bald granite peaks that are 700 million years old, a destination that is truly spectacular for nature lovers and photographers alike.
Activities surrounding the Spitzkoppe include; stargazing, the Rock Arch, climbing, hiking trails and of course walking trails, not forgetting photography.
Sossusvlei photos and images all by us here at Uyaphi.com of this amazing desert destination in the heart of the World famous Namib Desert of Namibia.
Without question one of the main attractions on anybody's list when visiting Namibia.
Swakopmund, one of Namibia top travel destinations offering up photographic opportunities left, right and centre, never mind the great accommodation and restaurant options on offer.
The small laidback town of Swakopmund, an oasis in the middle of the Namib Desert will charm all that visit.
Sesriem Canyon Photos
Photographs and images of the small but worth the visit Sesriem Canyon which is located within an easy five-minute drive from the main entrance to Sossusvlei.
30 metres deep and well over a million years old, Sesriem is well worth a short visit.
Torra Conservancy Photos

A site that has hosted mankind for over 6 000 years and offers up not only spectacular scenery but rock carvings that are in themselves 2 500 years old. A special place awaits.
Skeleton Coast Photos
Skeleton Coast National Park is wild, remote, desert scapes in every direction, stunning rock formations, not another human in sight, free-roaming wildlife including hyena, lion and cheetah.
The effort to get here will reward like nothing else in Africa.

Kolmanskop, with the thanks of diamond mining was at one point one of the richest towns in the whole of Africa.

The Road To Sossusvlei
Once one navigates the main Sesriem entrance gates and enters the national park a pleasant surprise awaits, a tarred road (yes, a tarred road) that extends all the way through to the main parking area near Sossusvlei.
Cape Town To The Kunene River
In November and December of last year (2019), we loaded our Jeep and headed north out of Cape Town, destination Namibia and the Kunene River, her border with Angola.
A couple of thousand kilometres later, we returned, this time, more in love with country than ever.
Windhoek Oktoberfest 2021
On the 25th and 26th of October, the Sports Klub Windhoek will host the 55th edition of the Oktoberfest. Over 5000 people are expected to attend (compared to 1000 in 2010).
Adding a certain local flavour will be the Namibian band Famaz Attak, and there will be long-established activities and games like archery and tree trunk sawing.
Top 5 restaurants in Windhoek
Continuing our series of dining in Africa, we look at Windhoek. More and more visitors are becoming aware of the unique attractions that this country as a safari destination has to offer.
Nowhere is too far to travel in this small (and clean) city of 330,000 but be warned when you go out to eat, vegetarianism is not common!
Best Places To Go In Namibia
The Uyaphi team has compiled a list of the "Best Places to go" which most safari itineraries would include. A different destination from most African safari destinations.
Instead of lush green forests or open savannas, the primary attraction being vast, open deserts interspersed with canyons, mountain ranges, and oasis.
Living With The Himba
In May 2012, we arranged for Uyaphi.Com client Ken Vine from Devon in England to stay with the traditional Himba people in two remote villages in the middle of Kaokoland.
He lived, slept, ate, conversed and photographed these Himba villagers.
