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
Himba Village PhotosHimba 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 PhotosThe 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 PhotosImages 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 PhotosKunene 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 PhotosA 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 PhotosSolitaire Namibia 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.
Spitzkoppe PhotosThe 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.
Swakopmund PhotosSwakopmund, 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.
Torra Conservancy PhotosTorra Conservancy photographs of an area in Namibia that has been on our personal bucket list for some time now. A desert-like experience awaits for those adventurous souls out there who want to experience one of Africa's most remote and isolated destinations. Over 3 500 square kilometres of pure and utter remote desert wilderness awaits.
Twyfelfontein PhotosPhotographs and a personal take on one of Namibia's top attractions, the "UNESCO World Heritage Site" of Twyfelfontein. 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.
