Namibia

Located in southwestern Africa, Namibia boasts a well-developed infrastructure, some of the best tourist facilities in Africa, and an impressive list of breathtaking natural wonders. Visitors can explore the capital of Windhoek and discover the lovely coastal town of Swakopmund boasting remnants of the country’s German influence, reflected in the architecture, culture, cuisine and the annual Oktoberfest celebrations. To properly appreciate this extraordinary country, you will have to venture out of the cities to explore the remarkable natural landscapes Namibia has to offer. These include: the impressive Fish River Canyon; the vast Etosha National Park teeming with abundant wildlife, such as lions, desert-adapted elephants and the Hartmann’s Mountain Zebra; the hauntingly beautiful Kalahari Desert; and of course the Namib Desert stretching for over 2000 km along the magnificent Atlantic Coast. Namibia is an ideal destination for travellers seeking an unforgettable African experience in a uniquely beautiful untamed wilderness.

Tours

2-3 Star Accommodation

Our 2 to 3 star accommodated safaris and tours use comfortable accommodation that is booked on a twin share basis. The majority of rooms have en-suite bathrooms and very occasionally they will have shared ablutions. All linen and bedding is provided.

3-4 Star Accommodation

Our 3 to 4 star accommodated safaris and tours use a variety of  value-for-money accommodation.  Accommodation varies from chalets, bungalows, traditional huts, permanent tents and hotels, all with private en-suite facilities and comfortable beds to ensure you’re re-charged and ready to go for the following days adventure!

Adventure Camping

Adventure camping requires participation. Your guide and assistant do all the meal preparation, however we ask guests to help (on rotation) with the washing up.  You will also need to assist with putting up your tent and packing the vehicle.  There are some long travel days which means early morning starts, so we all need to get involved to make the day run efficiently.

Fully Assisted Camping (en-suite)

Fully Assisted Camping (en-suite) is the modern-day version of the ‘traditional’ safari - like the gentleman explorers Baker, Stanley and Baines. Today, the ox-wagons and bearers have been replaced with custom-made 4WD safari vehicles, a professional guide, chef, waiter and support crew.

Fully Assisted Camping (non en-suite)

Fully Assisted Camping (non-ensuite) means you will not have to lift a finger as we take care of all camping chores: cooking, cleaning, pitching and packing tents.  You have a 3-man crew of experienced safari staff (including a cook) who are dedicated to making your trip memorable and rewarding.

Lodge and Fully Assisted Camping

These safaris combine Fully Assisted Camping (en-suite) with lodges and/or tented camps.  These combination itineraries combine the authentic under canvas feel with a lodge/tented camp experience - giving you the best of both words on safari!

Lodges and Tented Camps

Safari lodges are fully permanent accommodation built out of stone, wood, thatch, bricks, mortar or a combination of all.  Tented Camps are generally considered the best for a true safari experience. All lodges and tented camps feature real beds and private, en-suite bathroom facilities.
