Namibia

Gaining independence in 1990, Namibia is one of the world’s youngest nations.  It has an agelessness that is simply mesmerizing.  Namibia is a nation of grand landscapes that is home to tribes including the Himba and San (Bushman).  Namibia takes its name from the Namib Desert, whose sand dunes sweep down to the crashing waves of the Atlantic Ocean.

Though southern Africa’s driest country, Namibia is widely regarded as one of the region’s finest wildlife destinations.  Along the shoreline of Skeleton Coast National Park desert-adapted elephant, giraffe, oryx (gemsbok) and kudu are hunted by lion, jackal and hyena. Further south, Cape Cross is home to one of the largest colonies of Cape fur seals anywhere in the world.

Etosha National Park is so large it can be seen from space.  The park is home to elephant, black rhino, big cats and a huge number of herbivores.  All are attracted by the salt licks and freshwater of this giant salt 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 Namibia, Fish River Canyon, Africa’s largest, rivals all these natural sights when it comes to picture-postcard beauty.  The Bavarian architecture of Lüderitz and Swakopmund also deserve exploration.  Alongside the ghost town of Kolmanskop on the edge of the otherwise prohibited Sperrgebiet diamond mining area.

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 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.
