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.
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.
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.
Discover giant sand dunes, explore the surreal Petrified Forest, go on game drives in Etosha National Park, visit the Cheetah Conservation Foundation at Otjiwarongo and spot the black rhino - you'll get to do all this a more on our lodge accommodated safaris to Namibia. With itineraries to Namibia as well mult-country trips to neighbouring Botwana, Zimbabwe and South Africa, these small group safaris use 3-4 star standard lodges and tented chalets and travel by road is done by private European standard transportation.

Highlights of a safari to Namibia
Namibia has an abundance of wildlife and is home to Etosha National Park, one of Africa’s finest national parks, where big game roam on the park’s ethereal silvery pan and gather to drink at the floodlit waterholes, a unique experience and a highlight on any safari. Namibia boasts spectacular scenery and wildlife, coupled with Sossusvlei, the world’s largest sand dunes; the Namib Desert, the world's oldest desert and Fish River Canyon, the second largest canyon in the world. Not to mention ancient rock art, desert adapted animals and the fascinating Himba tribe, which make Namibia a truly unique and enchanting wilderness destination.

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!”
