IN A NUT­SHELL

Day 1 & 2: Lüderitz The group meets in Lüderitz. The first pho­tog­ra­phy ses­sion will be held in the af­ter­noon. The next morn­ing, we’ll travel to Kol­man­skop and af­ter­wards you can ex­plore the town on your own.

Day 3: Kanaän We leave Lüderitz early in the morn­ing and will make a stop near Aus to see the wild horses at the Garub wa­ter­hole. From here, we drive to Kanaän guest farm, where you’ll see the first red dunes of the desert. The view from the camp­site is fan­tas­tic and this is where we’ll en­joy the sun­set.

Day 4 & 5: Sos­susvlei We travel along the D707 to Ses­riem, stop­ping along the way to take photos. We visit the Ses­riem canyon and its rocky con­glom­er­ates, Dead Vlei and, of course, Sos­susvlei. We’ll wait for sun­set on the Elim dune and watch the sun­rise from Dune 45. Dur­ing the day the pho­tog­ra­pher will be on hand for one-on-one ses­sions.

Day 6 & 7: Swakop­mund We visit Soli­taire and travel north to Walvis Bay and Swakop­mund, where we’ll stay in for­mal en suite ac­com­mo­da­tion for two nights. Ac­tiv­i­ties in Swakop­mund are not in­cluded in the rate.

Day 8: Spitzkoppe Walk around and take photos of the in­ter­est­ing rock for­ma­tions. If you’re fit and keen, you can climb the kop­pies in the area to see the rock art up close.

Day 9: Madisa / Twyfel­fontein Af­ter sun­rise the group de­parts for Madisa Camp in Da­ma­r­a­land. Along the way we’ll keep our eyes peeled for pos­si­ble sight­ings of desert ele­phants and rhi­nos. Madisa Camp is set among huge boul­ders and over­looks the Gaun­te­gab River. If time al­lows, we’ll go see the Twyfel­fontein en­grav­ings.

Day 10: Etosha (Oli­fantsrus) We fol­low a scenic route with lots of photo op­por­tu­ni­ties. We’ll stop to re­fuel in Ka­man­jab. From here, we drive 70 km along a tar road to Gal­ton gate, where we en­ter Etosha Na­tional Park in the west. We’ll camp at Oli­fantsrus, a self-cater­ing camp­site with only 10 stands and no lodge. The camp has a wa­ter­hole that’s il­lu­mi­nated at night.

Day 11,12 & 13: Etosha (Halali) Af­ter an early break­fast, we drive 200 km through the park to Halali Camp, where we’ll spend three nights. Here you’ll have more than enough time to mas­ter the art of ISO and shut­ter speed and take lots of photos of the park’s wildlife.

Day 14: We say good­bye and head home.
