Namibia's Etosha National Park and Namib Rand Reserve - November 2020
Dates: Sunday 15th November to 24th November 2020
Namibia offers unique opportunities for both wildlife and landscape photography. It is a vast country with a population of only 2 million. Large parts are desert with much of the rest being open savannah country dotted by dramatic mountain ranges. Its colour palette of blue skies, orange sand-mountains and yellow grasslands contributes to some unforgetable vistas. Much of its wildlife is uniquely adapted to this arid environment and wonderfully photogenic.
