Photographer's Note

The NamibRand Nature Reserve originated from a dream of extending the desert frontiers by integrating a large number of former sheep farms and developing a sanctuary free of fences, so that once again the wildlife could roam their habitat unhindered. Covering an area of over 170,000 hectares, NamibRand is bordered by the Naukluft Park in the west and the impressive Nubib Mountain range in the East.

The special attraction of the reserve is the diversity of desert landscapes. Virtually all facets of the Namib are represented here.

At sunset, mountains plunging down into endless grassy plains, interspersed by red vegetated dunes, create a tapestry of colours.
