Exploring the Best of Namibia in Pictures

Namibia is a land of untamed wilderness and desert. It’s also a destination of outstanding scenery where animals roam free and photographic opportunities appear at every turn. This post provides an introduction to our gallery – The Best of Namibia in Pictures.

We spent 3 weeks in Namibia as guests of Wild Dog Safaris and covered both the north and south of the country. From our travels we found it to be a wonderfully diverse land with much to see and do. Our choice of images reflect this as well as Namibia’s nature and character. Click the link below to explore Namibia in Pictures.

As the second least populated country in the world, Namibia is very much a wild and rugged land and one where droughts are unfortunately increasingly common. However, although much of the country is a harsh desert environment, Namibia is a place of outstanding beauty with plenty of wildlife roamong free. Travelling along the dusty dirt roads you see the landscape constantly change bringing so many photographic opportunities. We hope that exploring the gallery will inspire you and tempt you to visit this wonderful country.

The Draw of Namibia

Namibia, formerly known as South West Africa during its days as a German colony, sits on the west coast of Africa across the Tropic of Capricorn. It is perhaps most famous for having one of the highest ranges of sand dunes in the world at Sossusvlei and for Etosha National Park rated amongst the world’s greatest wildlife conservation areas.

The Attraction of Namibia

From hot dry deserts to the cold bleak skeleton coast shrouded in mist, the scenery is extreme but intoxicating. Add in the wildlife, ancient rock paintings, the biggest canyon in Africa and the mind boggling rock formations in Damaraland and you have an irresistable cocktail of attractions.
