Namibia is a country with boundless territories, one of the least populated on the planet. Dominated by a central framework of the highlands, it extends west into the Namib Desert until it touches the Atlantic, overlooking the immense Kalahari to the east. It is a geographical area of irresistible charm, an authentic other part of the world. The Namib, the "land of nowhere", has been arid for 80 million years. The tour will move from the capital Windhoek to the south, arriving at the most famous and celebrated area of Namibia, the Sossusvlei area, overnight in an exclusive lodge, the last before the absolute nothing. You will have the opportunity to make excursions to discover the very high red dunes and the most famous Vlei, some of the most unlikely scenarios on the planet. The chosen shooting areas will be addressed at different times of the day, from before sunrise to late sunset, with the aim of refining the perception of the different African light. With all the necessary time available, each participant will be guided to the best realization of their images. We will then leave again, along one of the most scenic dirt roads towards the Kanaan reserve, a condensation of desert visions. This splendid private reality manages and preserves intact a vast and enchanting territory, which will be explored through personalized tours. We continue to descend towards Luderitz and the inevitable ghost town of Kolmanskop, where we can trace the absolute meaning of this improbable place in abstract-inspired shots. It will continue, towards the southeast, until it arrives, descending a route exclusively for 4x4, at the Fish River Canyon, spectacular and second in size only to the American Grand Canyon. This place, which will mark the southernmost point of the workshop, will be lived intensely, staying overnight in the only charming Lodge close to the canyon itself. The last stage of the workshop, going back to the capital, will consist of a view of the great Kalahari, a different reality, with a more lively nature and different but no less exciting colors. Overnight in the Lodge and, late in the morning, return to the capital and visit it; in the afternoon at the airport for departure. An experience in Africa planned and organized with the same passion as ever. A photographic adventure that leaves its mark.
No difficult walks are planned. Possible easy walks in the nature for about three hours.
