Namibia has been characterised as having geographic attributes that have been described as being four countries in one. Four different and varied landscapes, each with its own features and attractions.
- One big open-air studio
Namibia is internationally renowned for its barren desert landscape. Namibia also offers immense diversity of other settings, where one can climb the highest sand dunes in the world. Descend to the floor of the deepest canyon in Africa. Filming in Namibia provides unique opportunities to become immersed in the past at one of the Africa's richest rock art sites, and experience wildlife amongst one of the most spectacular pans on earth. Only in Namibia can one explore the oldest, driest desert in the world and listen to the silence to your soul, which will invariably add value, and contrasts to any film production
Namibia is home to vibrant cities where people are excited about the future, while remaining deeply connected to their rich, cultural past. A stable, democratic government, infrastructure that allows film crews to move confidently off the beaten path and endless horizons that beckon you to explore define this country and its people.
Furthermore, due to the changing climate conditions found throughout the expansive mass of land that is Namibia, the country provides a wide range of possible weather types.
- 360° Filming
Namibia offers motion picture industry infrastructure and low-cost, high-quality services. Filming permissions are easily obtainable, especially with the help of a local production company. Unlike many European countries, Namibia has a very welcoming approach to filming in public areas such as on streets and highways.
- Highly qualified professionals
Namibian crews are renowned for their positive attitude, motivation and dedication. Due to Namibia’s ever-expanding film industry, Namibian crews not only have the qualifications in their field, but also the necessary local experience. Namibia’s film crews and technicians are multilingual and have international production experiences.
With opposite seasons to the Northern hemisphere, Namibia’s climate of low average rainfall, with long daylight hours and an average of 300 days of sunlight annually, makes Namibia an ideal filming location.
