WONDERS OF THE NAMIBIAN NIGHT
7 May 2024 — 15 May 2024
Photographer - Alyn Wallace A Photography tour to capture the incredible landscape, Astro and wildlife around the Namib Desert. Deposit: $1,800 EURO. Full cost: 4,500 EURO Imagine capturing the Milky Way arching across the sky above gnarly ancient trees, or the Magellanic Clouds dancing in the heavens above a desolate desert landscape. This is the magic of Namibia, a country with some of the darkest skies on Earth and stunning natural scenery that makes it perfect for landscape astrophotography. Join award-winning astrophotographer, Alyn Wallace, and professional guide, Richard Morsbach, on an unforgettable trip to a dark sky paradise. We will visit the otherworldly Quiver Tree Forest, the imposing red dunes and dead trees of Sossusvlei and the impressive Spitzkoppe granite peaks found in the Namib Desert. The Milky Way core will rise in the late evening, climbing directly overhead for perfect viewing conditions that will blow your mind. It’s also the perfect time of year to capture a Milky Way arch panorama, not to mention the wonders of the southern night sky like the Southern Cross, Carina Nabula and the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds.
