A World of Discovery

Namibia Safari 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. A climb to the top of Dune 45, the most famous sand dune of Sossusvlei or a hot air balloon ride over dunes is not to be missed and is highly recommended.

Whether you wish to explore Namibia on an overland camping safari, a lodge accommodated safari, or do it your own way on a tailor made holiday, it's an enchanting destination that won't fail to impress.

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 Safaris

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.

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. ”

This tour was absolutely amazing. All of the crew were fantastic and I will miss them all. In particular Steve was a ball to have on the tour playing his guitar and singing around the campfire at night. Lorraine was always laughing and Matt made sure we were all ok everyday. Could not have asked for a better trip and this shows in how sad I was to leave. I would highly recommend this trip to all ages of people that have an open mind and love an adventure.”

The tour was amazing. Our crew were great,Beverly sociable and informative. I don't know if the tour gave us a true feel for some of the countries only because we were generally staying in campsites that were isolated from the general population. But we saw a lot and had a great time regardless. A great taste tester of Africa. ”

Toni was very impressive as a tour leader - very well organised. Everything ran to schedule and she took care of everything. Our cook was brilliant too, every meal was creative and delicious and we've never had the same meal twice. He made sure we never went hungry. You could see he took great pride in his work. He was also very lovely and genuine man.

All our crew was brilliant and made the trip most enjoyable!”
