50 Photos That Will Make You Want to Visit Namibia

Namibia Photography

It’s almost impossible to take a bad photo in Namibia. The country may be sparsely populated, but it packs a whole lot of punch for Namibian photography.  Every day we found ourselves eager to explore a new corner of the country. Whether it was the tantalizing sunsets, the unique and sometimes bizarre wildlife, or the captivating people Namibia never left us bored.

To many Namibia is a land unheard of, but it is rising as the new “hot spot” for international travel. Even with it’s rising popularity one can even find themselves completely isolated in a far off land. We traveled overland in our Land Cruiser and at points felt we were on a foreign planet.

This is our Namibia photography collection of a November spent around Namibia.
