Africa's Photo Hot Spots
With landscapes and cultures varying drastically across the continent, photographers are hard-pressed to choose a single destination to experience, however some places stand out for their extreme beauty.
Namibia, with its hard, unforgiving seas, endless deserts and vast sand dunes is a land of contrasts and great beauty. The dunes offer some remarkable photography, and the mysterious desert elephants of the Namib are something to look out for. The wild horses of the Fish River Canyon, with its harsh red rock formations are a photographers dream in this country.
Uganda and Rwanda offer some spectacular photography, especially in the lush rainforests and gorilla areas. The contrast of lush vegetation and extreme devastation and poverty in these countries create a very poignant backdrop.
Victoria Falls, a world-heritage site, is something not to be missed, with spectacular footage on the Zimbabwe and Zambian sides.
Cape Town offers some breathtaking photographic opportunities, especially the famous Table Mountain. A photographic trip up the cable car is highly recommended.

The highlight of my trip had to be Gweru in Zimbabwe, it was my idea of paradise. So much to do there with the animals and the location of it was just beautiful!

The trip was great! A very relaxed ride in a mokoro, followed by camping in the Okavango Delta and watching the animals on the islands was awesome!
