Overview of Namibia Photo Safari
Namibia photo safaris, considered by many to be one of the safest countries in Africa, is a sparsely populated vast land. This desert country offers a variety of unique destinations for the avid adventurer. Your trip Namibia photo safari might include hot air balloon rides over the desert, visits to the famous Himba people (known as the red people), Etosha Game Park, the Skeleton Coast, Dune surfing, desert creatures tours, Dolphin cruises, private game reserves and more.
All Namibia photo safari itineraries are customized for your pleasure and we can assure rarely do two itineraries look alike. Since the country is so vast, about the size of Texas, light aircraft is often used as a means of transfer from one location to the next. Boutique luxury camps with excellent staff meet you along the way as you explore this amazing country.
Combine your Namibia photo safari with a luxury hunting safari on large private hunting ranches with excellent trophy game. The country of Namibia is very pro hunting as they understand the need to manage their game in a sustainable manner. Conservation is a high priority for the government and the people of Namibia. Truly a delightful country to visit.
