There are those places that grab you and that you’ll recall at a moments notice. Namibia is one of those places for me. I’d first worked there over 15 years ago, and have been back several times since. Over a year ago I decided to build a FirstLight Photo Expedition there, and we just finished that incredible trip.

A different model than FirstLight has used before, we limited the group size to a total of 6 individuals, as to take advantage of the structure as we were traveling within Namibia via aircraft for the majority of the trip. We actually had two aircraft: a Kodiak to fly our group and a Cessna 210 for the luggage and gear. This proved to be a perfect model, as distances in Namibia are vast and traveling from one location to the other can account for many hours in a 4×4 safari vehicle over very rough roads.
Perez, our awesome guide and some stranger in the background!!

We’re working on building the same Namibia Photo Expedition for next year, as well as a Mongolian Photo Expedition in 2017. We will send out a notice for each of these, and the process is the first ones to respond are those who participate.
