Etosha is one of the most accessible game reserves in Namibia and Southern Africa. Unique in Africa, Etosha Park’s main characteristic is a 100-million year old saltpan covering one-third of the park’s area. It is reputedly so large it can be seen from space. Sightings of abundant game are almost guaranteed at the half-dozen main waterholes in the pan, great spots to silently view wildlife in a natural environment.
A member of the Society of American Travel Writers (SATW) for 25 years and SATW’s Travel Photographer of the Year for 1997, Dennis was also runner-up for that honor in 1998, 1999 and 2006, as well as placing third in 1996. In 1984 his portfolio on China in the Minolta Mirror won an “Award of Excellence” from Communication Arts.
Dennis has been a photography workshop instructor, taught photography at a community college, and has written for several photography magazines both nationally and internationally. He designs women’s fashions and men’s ties for ShopVIDA.com and designs custom travel posters marketed by FineArtAmerica.com. Since 1981 he has taken photography groups to over 25 countries around the world as the owner of Photo Explorer Tours.
