April News Update – Into the Wild Namibia

I am deeply fascinated by dramatic landscapes and people with strong cultural backgrounds. I have been incredibly lucky and privileged to be able to work in a field that fulfills my fascination.

My private Namibia tribal workshop ‘Into The Wild’ was created based on this fascination – to explore and experience the unique landscapes and tribals in Namibia. I look forward to sharing this meaningful journey with 6 dedicated photo enthusiasts who, just like me, are as passionately inspired.

Take a sneak peek at the ‘Into the Wild Namibia’ workshop

Into the Wild Namibia 9-19 November 2022

Located in the southern continent of Africa, Namibia shares land borders with Zambia and Angola to the north, Botswana to the east and South Africa to the south and east. Humans have inhabited the area since ancient times and Bantu-speaking tribes began arriving in the 14th century AD. The current population of Namibia is 2.1 million, which is made up of several different tribes.

Into The Wild Namibia workshop will be led by Christian Nørgaard, who will bring you up close and personal with the local tribes like the Himba and The San peoples. This is a rare opportunity to meet indigenous people to gain an insight into their way of life and experience their traditions which are so uniquely different.
