Namibia

One of the world’s youngest nations, gaining independence in 1990, Namibia has an agelessness that’s simply mesmerizing. A nation of grand open landscapes that’s home to tribes including the Himba and San, it takes its name from the Namib Desert, whose dramatic dunes sweep down to the crashing waves of the Atlantic Ocean.

Though southern Africa’s driest nation as a result, Namibia is widely-regarded as one of the region’s finest wildlife destinations. Even in the 500 km long Skeleton Coast National Park in Namibia’s north, desert-adapted elephant, giraffe, oryx and kudu are hunted down by lion, jackal and hyena. Further south, Cape Cross forms one of the largest colonies of Cape fur seals anywhere in the world.

So large it can be seen from space, Etosha National Park is inhabited by elephant, black rhino, big cats and a huge number of herbivores, all attracted by the salt licks and freshwater of this giant pan, while Sossusvlei pan is perhaps better known for the epic sunsets that ignite the sky above the red sands of Dune 45.

Elsewhere in the country, Fish River Canyon, Africa’s largest, rivals all these natural sights when it comes to picture-postcard beauty and the chance for adventure, though the Bavarian architecture (and cake) of Lüderitz and Swakopmund also deserve exploration, alongside the ghost town of Kolmanskop on the edge of the otherwise prohibited Sperrgebiet diamond mining area.

POPULAR AREAS TO VISIT

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.
