    Default Quiver trees

    Hi, This is a long shot but here goes ...

    I am going up to the Northern cape & Botwana next week and hop to stop over somewhere to photograph Quiver trees at night.

    Hence my request - does anybody have recommendations where one can take realy great photographs of quiver trees at night with the stars and or moon as a back drop?

    That means that there should be a campsite nearby , the trees must be accessible at night and preferably be on either the eastern or western slope of a small a rocky hill / outcrop.

    Area - probably Northern cape / Namaqualand or there abouts. In RSA - Namibia is too far.

    Any ideas ??

    Thanks

    Take a look at Goegap nature reserve. I got great photos from the region.

    There is a quiver tree forest near Calvinia.

    Not sure about camping.

    Quiver trees tend to grow on the northern side of mountain slopes in the Northern Cape. There is a Quiver Tree forest near Niewoudtville and plenty accommodation there.
