The desert is calling. Dunes become mountains, red sand changes shape with the wind. The rugged, untamed Damaraland is a vast, open region waiting to be explored. The turbulent coastline, dotted with shipwrecks, is waiting to be captured. Wander the wide-open spaces, feel the solitude and silence, and discover the creative possibilities.
The landscapes are simply unimaginable—swirling dust clouds, desert sun, and towering sand dunes. We were all in awe of this country’s beauty and tranquility.
