Great landscape photos taken by Carlo van Wyk during a 3,000 mile roadtrip through Southern Namibia.

These great landscape photographs were capture by Cape Town-based web developer and photographer Carlo van Wyk during a solo trip through Namibia.

With his 4×4 packed with supplies and photography gear, Carlo set off on a two-week 3,000 mile road trip through the south of Namibia. He writes: “I’ve always wanted to do a trip to Namibia. The country’s natural beauty, along with the vast, desolate expanse always appealed to me. I’ve never really gotten the opportunity to do a solo road trip before, and when I got the opportunity to do a solo road trip, Namibia was the perfect destination.”


“The main purpose of the trip was to visit Namibia to take some landscape pictures, and to take a bit of a break. Since I had limited time, I decided to focus most of my travels around the south and south-west of Namibia. I prefer focussing on fewer places in a country and travel relaxed rather than to rush and see too many places.”



Carlo packed a Canon 5D Mark III and a range of Canon EF lenses, along with accessories.

“I ended up taking the majority of pictures with the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L MK II, Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L MK II and EF 100mm Macro lens. The EF 24mm tilt shift lens also came in handy for a few shifted panoramas. I missed not having a 70-200mm zoom lens, as there were plenty of opportunities where such a lens would have been ideal.”
