NAMIBIA - SEP / OCT 2014

NAMIBIA IS A BRILLIANT COUNTRY FOR INDEPENDENT-MINDED WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHERS. THE FAMOUS ETOSHA NATIONAL PARK CERTAINLY LIVED UP TO OUR VERY HIGH EXPECTATIONS, WHILE ALL THE LODGES AND RESERVES WE VISITED WERE EQUALLY AS PRODUCTIVE. THOUSANDS OF IMAGES OF MAMMALS, BIRDS AND THE REMARKABLE LANDSCAPES WERE TAKEN DURING OUR THREE WEEKS IN THE COUNTRY.

ALL THE LOCATIONS VISITED ARE HIGHLY RECOMMENDED AND THE GUIDES AT ERONGO AND OKONJIMA WERE ALL EXCEPTIONAL. OUR BASES WERE (IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER):

DESERT CAMP, SESRIEM (3 NIGHTS) - FOR EXPLORING THE FABULOUS NAMIB-NAUKLUFT NATIONAL PARK AND DEADVLEI / SOSSUVLEI LANDSCAPES

OYSTERBOX GUESTHOUSE, WALVIS BAY (2 NIGHTS) - FOR HUGE NUMBERS OF WALVIS BAY WATERBIRDS AND MARINE MAMMALS

CAPE CROSS LODGE (3 NIGHTS) - FOR THE CAPE CROSS SEAL RESERVE, AND FOR EXPLORING THE 'SKELETON COAST'

ERONGO WILDERNESS LODGE GAME RESERVE (2 NIGHTS) - FOR MANY OF THE SPECIAL BIRDS OF NORTHERN NAMIBIA

ETOSHA NATIONAL PARK (8 NIGHTS - OKAUKUEJO CAMP 3 NIGHTS, HALALI CAMP 3 NIGHTS, NAMUTONI CAMP 2 NIGHTS) - FOR HUGE NUMBERS OF GAME, OFTEN SEEN AT VERY CLOSE RANGE, LARGELY CENTRED AROUND THE NUMEROUS WATERHOLES

OKONJIMA NATURE RESERVE BUSH CAMP (3 NIGHTS) - FOR MORE GREAT BIRDING AND GAME VIEWING, INCLUDING A VISIT TO THE FAMOUS 'AFRICAT' FOUNDATION CENTRE

                                                               

HERE IS A SMALL SAMPLE OF THE PHOTOS TAKEN ON THE TRIP - I COULD HAVE PUT HUNDREDS ON...
