Namibia - The Jewel of Africa
The itinerary will be published by January 21, 2020
Few countries in Africa offer such a variety of spectacular landscapes: giant sand dunes, vast gravel plains, high mountains, bizarre rock formations, deep canyons, waterfalls and bush savannah. The Namib is the oldest desert on earth where you can find a lone oryx wandering over red sand dunes or spring bock feeding on the sparse vegetation in dry river beds. Namibia with its incredibly beautiful landscapes, abundance of wildlife and cultural diversity makes it one of the most photogenic countries in the world. Theo Allofs and Jami Tarris, owners of Wild Focus Expeditions, have spent several years in Namibia and will take you during this expedition to their most favorite and photogenic places. You will climb the highest sand dunes in Africa and wander among the silent skeletons of 1000 year old acacia trees in a white clay pan surrounded by giant red sand dunes. You will wander around the quiver tree forest at night illuminated by the constellations of the southern hemisphere and photograph these alien-like trees beneath the milky way. You will go back in time when visiting the diamond gold rush town Kolmannskuppe. This German colonial town was abandoned in the 1950s. Meanwhile desert sand has invaded the buildings creating an eerie atmosphere and at the same time a photographer’s delight.
Further north desert elephants will be awaiting you in one of the dry river beds that lead from the interior mountains to the mystic Skeleton Coast. You will be amongst the very few people who are actually allowed to enter the mysterious Skeleton Coast. More sand dunes along the foggy coast await your creative eye as we make our way down to the ocean where lunch awaits.
