The unique quiver tree in Namibia stands guardian between the Milky Way and the two Magellanic Clouds. The skies in Namibia are dark and unaffected by light pollution, allowing a fabulous view of the stars and the Milky Way.

Namibia's endemic vegetation provides fabulous opportunities to capture the brilliant juxtaposition of our Earth and sky.
