Coordinates : -20.596430, 14.373451 (Open in Google Maps)

Subjects : Wonderful landscapes of a primordial earth. Earth and red rocks that literally light up at sunset. The most beautiful sunsets in Namibia I saw them on this ancestral land that has captivated me like few others. Among the animals you can see there are the Elephants in the desert (very rare), giraffe, oryx, baboons, zebras and springboks inevitable. Along the way you will meet even the Himba and Herero women who are there for the sole purpose of being photographed or sell souvenirs. They are authentic, but the context is a bit 'artificial. Do not miss the site, Unesco World Heritage Site, Twyfelfontein with its beautiful and delicate carvings. Also nearby rock formations commonly called the "Organ Pipes" and "The burnt mountain" testimony of the antiquity of this land, as few fascinating.

Recommended equipment : A basic kit from wide angle to medium telephoto. There are many occasions that they will happen, or landscape photo from the broad to the detail of an elephant.

Best months : Certainly during our summer (their winter) where the temperatures are acceptable. Please note that it is peak season, so remember to book early.

How to get there : Plane from Italy to Windhoek, the various ways and various air carriers. Direct via Frankfurt, or with South African from Johannesburg. I was fine with Turkish, Venice? Istanbul? Johannesburg and then I flew to Johannesburg with South African. To achieve Twyfelfontein must join a tour or more simply rent a car. Half day is from Swakopmund (dirt road) from Windhoek (partially paved).

Visits : The Twyfelfontein site does not open until 8:00 in the morning. With the price of the ticket includes a very good English speaking guide who will show you around the site. From the main area of ??the Safari Camp we organize excursions to look for the desert elephants or rhinos.
