SMALL GROUP SIZE for a more intimate experience...

Come journey with us into South Western Africa, a land of both towering arid sand dunes and lush wetlands. A part of our world where wildlife out numbers people; a true photographers paradise. Award winning photographer Jon Gurr will be escorting us on this journey, providing insight on how to best capture exciting imagery and memories. Namibia is one of Africa’s last refuges of the Bushman, a land of grand vistas, spectacular scenery and few people. Here we shall soon find that nature rules and man is but an observer. Sparkling sand seas spread to the horizon with dunes that rise a thousand feet into the blue skies. Ageless trees that appear as mere shrubs cling to life on the desert floor. Vast salt pans in the interior that spring to life during the short wet season draw game hundreds of miles across the desert in search of food and water. Heavy rainfall in Angola makes a months long journey south on the Okavango River eventually reaching the permanent wetlands of Delta. Each year these flood waters surge and recede attracting wildlife from across the Kalahari Desert. This is known as one of the world’s great migrations and makes the Okavango Delta the best game viewing region in the world.

Due to the small size of the lodges we will visit the group size has been kept very small (15 to 20 members only).
Single accommodation is extremely limited. Anyone interested is urged to book early!
