Useful tips for planning your tailor-made safari holiday to Namibia
How long would you like to holiday in Namibia for?
What sort of accommodation would you prefer?
Would you consider a self-drive holiday or would you prefer a guided trip?
What internal transport options would you prefer?
If you prefer a self-drive option then we will provide a quote based on your preferred standard of vehicle. We always include full insurance coverage and a second spare wheel as flat tires are common. As part of all self-drive packages in Namibia you'll be greeted on arrival by a local representative for a comprehensive run-through of your itinerary and all the info you'll need for your independent adventure. You'll also be given a Namibian SIM card for emergency phone calls.
For those interested in sleeping under the stars, we can provide vehicles equipped with all the camping gear you need or we can offer specially kitted 4x4 vehicles with rooftop tents so you can sleep on top of your vehicle rather than beside it! For camping we recommend a minimum itinerary length of 10 days to make it cost effective. Of course, you can choose to have a mix of camping and lodges for the full African experience.

How to make the most of your budget
Let us inspire your safari to Namibia
Desert walk in Sossusvlei
No trip to any desert would be complete without exploring the endless dunes and fascinating surroundings. A guided desert walk takes you deep into the red of Sossusvlei as well as to the tree graveyard of Deadvlei led by a local guide and desert expert! Learn about how flora and fauna survive in the desert and how the local San Bushmen live – it’s certainly an activity not to be missed!
It’s not just the US that is home to Ghost Towns, Namibia has them too! On the southeast coast lies a town called Luderitz, from which a few kilometres inland Kolmanskop can be found. Originally a diamond playground for German families in the early 1900s, it was totally abandoned in 1954 and is still inexactly the same state it was left in – apart from a lot of sand seeping into houses that have been severely battered by the elements!
Sundowners at Okaukuejo
In the heart of Etosha National Park sits one of three of the park’s most popular waterholes – Okaukuejo! Not only is it teeming with wildlife during the day, the floodlights in the evening mean you can spend an evening, glass in hand, watching the animals return for their nightcaps! Sit on the benches that line the area or stay in a luxury lodge overlooking the waterhole for the ultimate Etosha experience!
Get stuffed at Joe's Beer House
Obtaining legendary status in Namibia, Joe’s Beer House in Windhoek is definitely the place to get an awesome fix of game meat and fresh beer! Benefitting from both African and German influences you can spend an evening eating the delights of peppered springbok steak, skewers of ostrich and zebra and even crocodile on a hotplate all washed down with steins of German lager and maybe a jagermeister or two?
