NEW Trip – Kyrgyzstan & the Tian Shan MountainsJoin 19 August 2024 Departure

Namibia is an incredible destination that offers dramatic landscapes, stunning wildlife, diverse cultures and seemingly endless space to move around in. With its lonely deserts and spectacular sand dunes, rugged mountains and fertile valleys, immense canyons and windswept coastline, Namibia is without question one of the most photogenic places on Earth.

See the unforgettable red sand dunes of Sossusvlei, where you can hike to the top of Dune 45 to catch one of the world's most photographed sunrises over the breathtaking landscapes of the Namib Desert.

Get close to Africa's iconic wildlife with a game drive through the magnificent Etosha National Park and meet the cheetahs being rehabilitated through the Africat conservation program.

Hike through dramatic scenery in the vast Fish River Canyon, cycle through the rugged valleys and dry river courses of the Aus Mountains and engage with local culture and custom by visiting traditional tribal villages.

Visit the eerie sandblown ghost town of Kolmanskop, explore German colonial architecture in the charming town of Lüderitz, and see one of the world's largest collections of Stone Age artworks at Twyfelfontein.

Then head for the stark beauty of the Skeleton Coast, where you can marvel at the famous Walvis Bay flamingos, see the world's largest seal colony at Cape Cross and feast on seafood in Swakopmund. Whatever you do, just don't leave your camera at home!


Find your Namibia trip


Our all inclusive approach

Our range of Namibia adventures offer phenomenal value for money by providing top quality service, atmospheric accommodation and private vehicles. Additionally, we aim to incorporate as many inclusions as possible in the tour cost such as most meals, transfers, game drives, excursions and national park fees.

Authentic experiences

Namibia is a vast country with wide open spaces and long driving distances, which is why we have carefully designed our itineraries around the best wilderness areas and the most scenic landscapes. From watching the sunrise over the Sossusvlei sand dunes to spotting wildlife in Etosha and discovering the multitude of cultures and customs, our adventures allow you to experience this diverse country in its most beautiful form.

Choice of accommodations

We offer a range of adventures in Namibia to suit various budgets and interests. If you are looking for a little extra luxury, check out our 'In Comfort' range of trips which feature some high quality boutique accommodations.

Custom built, reliable transport

Trained drivers and well maintained vehicles, which are purpose built for our safaris, are what you can expect when on the lookout for Africa’s Big 5 game animals. Safari transport is designed with wildlife viewing in mind, providing unobstructed views and in most cases forward facing seats and air-conditioning.

Experienced local guides

Our expert guides are the real key to our success. From spotting wildlife to sharing their extensive knowledge, our passionate and attentive guides take pride in going the extra mile to make your Namibia experience unforgettable.

Leaders in responsible travel

Responsible travel practice is at the heart of our Namibia programs. Our adventures provide a true wilderness experience by viewing wildlife in their natural habitat and supporting the protection of diverse environments, endangered species and local communities.


Guide training

Guides receive annual training on their responsibilities in relation to environmental, social, cultural and economic sustainability.

Animal welfare focus

We adhere to our Animal Welfare Code of Conduct in Namibia. We strongly discourage contact with lions through lion cub petting and walking with lion activities, as well as elephant back rides.

Traveller education

Upon arrival, our group briefing educations travellers on appropriate behaviours when interacting with local indigenous people, specifically in regards to dress code, photographic protocol and donations.

Safari lodges

In game parks, national parks and rural locations we use 3 to 4 star comfortable properties that reflect the character of the area. Some may have extra facilities such as a swimming pool or private balcony.

Permanent safari camps

Like a tented hotel room, this is the perfect way to experience the African wilderness. We use 3 to 4 star comfortable properties that reflect the character of the area.


We offer two styles of camping; fully supported and semi-participation. Both styles feature quality two person tents erected in scenic wilderness.


In cities or large towns you will be accommodated in 3 to 4 star, twin share properties that are centrally located, comfortable and reliable.


We use quality 2 to 3 star chalets or guesthouses. They can be rustic; however we ensure that they provide a comfortable and friendly experience.

A custom made itinerary is the ultimate way to see the world how YOU want. They are created especially for you, giving you complete freedom to choose what you want to see, where you want to go and when you want to do it. If you love our current itineraries but want to customise it privately as a couple, a group of friends, family, club, business or school, you have the freedom to add or remove as many elements as you like to suit the interests of your group. Alternatively, you can start with a blank canvas and create a new and exciting itinerary from scratch! Our well-travelled consultants can give you firsthand suggestions and eliminate any uncertainty with trip planning to ensure you maximise the quality of your experience and get truly off the beaten track. Simply email, phone or visit us to start planning your dream adventure.
