Travel to Namibia with On The Go Tours

Namibia, wedged between the dusty plains of the Kalahari Desert and the chilly Atlantic Ocean, is a country of striking natural beauty. The vast shifting sand sea of the ancient Namib Desert and the iconic apricot coloured dunes of Namib-Naukluft National Park stand in stark contrast to the blackened trees of the surreal Petrified Forest, the harsh but beautiful Skeleton Coast and the tropical waterways of the Caprivi Strip.

The Etosha pan
One of the world's finest game parks

Now less than a quarter of its original size, Etosha National Park still remains one of the world's finest game parks, and is renowned for its wonderful floodlit waterholes, which are great for game viewing at night. The Etosha Pan, which dominates the park, is usually dry, but fills with water briefly in the summer months, when it attracts pelicans and flamingos in particular. Perennial spring attracts a variety of game and birds throughout the year, including the endangered black rhino and the endemic black face impala.

Namibia Overland Safari Tours

Overland Budget Accommodation Upgrade Available

On our overland camping safaris in Namibia, watch animals in their natural habitat congregate around the watering holes of Etosha National Park, climb up the vast dunes of Sossusvlei, meet the Himba tribe and take in amazing views over Fish River Canyon. All of our Namibia overland safaris are led by 3 crew - a tour leader, driver and cook who have travelled extensively throughout the region. Combining truck transportation and camping in tents is the most cost-effective way of visiting Namibia and it gets you off the beaten track too.

Namibia tour reviews

The tour was fantastic value for money, its a camping tour and at times it was tough going travelling through intense heat and some hot sleepless nights, but you forget all the negatives when climbing Dune 45 and eventually seeing, and what you come to witness is the amazing African wildlife, seeing elephants giraffes zebras and of course a lioness trying to catch dinner will stick in our memory for a very long time. We are both in our early sixties and encourage other people of our age to get off those boring cruises and see the real world out there! Life is an adventure, go and have one.

Tour was well organised, food was great considering the circumstances, Moyo the guide was great nothing too much trouble for him to organise, and Steve the driver was fantastic. Would we do it again? YES.”

Fantastic! The trip ran very smoothly. We were given plenty of notice of what was coming up, when we needed to buy extra water, how much to expect to pay for goods etc. The driving days were not super long, the truck was comfortable and the tents were great- so nice to be able to stand up!

The only things I thought the trip lacked was perhaps more small optional activities at a simple price. So, instead of the only optional being adrenaline activities at $150 or so per person, we would have loved a $15 village walk, $20 orphanage visit (or make a donation when you get there), time with the meerkats at Spitzkoppe, $15 to try dancing with the local tribe etc. A little bit more of the cultural side of each country would've been nice.

We felt Swakopmund was a bit overrated and would have preferred to spend that extra night in Chobe free camping as it felt a bit rushed. We had much better facilities in camp grounds than the backpackers in Swakop.

We had two families each with two children on the tour which made the trip fun! The difference in demographics made for a nice, happy medium.

Monga (cook) and Johnny (driver) were great. Johnny could not have been more personable and friendly. Monga's food was delicious.

Overall a great trip! Thank you.”

Loved this tour. As a 58 year old traveling with a fairly young group it was a challenging but thoroughly enjoyable experience. Our driver Steve entertained us on guitar most nights which was an added bonus. Matt our guide was knowledgable and made the trip nice and relaxed. Would highly recommend this tour. ”
