Photo Safari Destination Week: Sossusvlei, Namibia


This week’s posts will be a “places must see list” for photographic safaris in Africa. The best areas for wildlife photography and at the same time great places to rest, relax and forget the daily hassles at home. Get ready for places to fall in love with.

Sossusvlei in the Namib Desert in Namibia offers:

Mind blowing landscapes,
Great aerial photography with hot air ballooning
Great colors
Not so much wildlife, yet great opportunities to photograph desert adapted animals
Great lodges with stunning views like on the image above (Sossusvlei Desert Lodge)
Great opportunities for
team building activities
Wildlife photography courses

Self-drive is possible, but guided tours are recommended to find the best spots easily and to focus entirely on photography.

Happy snapping travel!
