Namaqualand Tour, August 2017

In August this year I will be leading a small group of nature photographers on a tour of Namaqualand, South Africa.  This region is justifiably famous for its wealth and variety of wild flowers and the tour is timed to coincide with the peak of the season.  Starting in Cape Town, we will drive north, visiting sites I have explored on previous visits, searching out interesting floral curiosities and sweeps of seasonal colour; “flowers in the landscape”.  Along the way, we will also be keeping our eyes open for opportunities to see and photograph wildlife, including the many insects attracted to the flowers, and well as birds and game.

This tour will definitely run but are still a few places left: for the full itinerary, and more details, please visit http://www.wildlifeworldwide.com/group-tours/flower-photography-in-namaqualand
