A Namibian guided safari offers a couple of real advantages over self-drive touring, not the least of which is the presence of a qualified safari guide who knows the Namibian roads, places and Namibian people. On safari you will experience Namibia in a way you would never have expected. We work with a number of Namibian safari tour operators catering for all markets, from the budget safari seeker to the luxury tourist. All of these Namibian safari companies offer a complete and professional service and excellent value for money.
On safari in Namibia with a budget
The Namibian Budget Camping Safari is an excellent way for the budget traveller to see Namibia. These safaris offer the best of all worlds: qualified and competent guides, beautiful and fascinating Namibian destinations, and affordable prices. These safaris run in minibuses for most of central Namibia; for the more rugged areas of Namibia transport will be in a 4x4 truck. All these safaris are run on a participation basis, this basically means you will be required to erect your own tent, help prepare food (although your guide will do the cooking) and help with the washing up.
Angling safaris in Namibia - Namibia has some of the best angling in the world, and the safaris offered below will introduce you to fishing both in the Atlantic Ocean and the mighty Zambezi River. If you're a keen angler don't miss out! As always if you need something a little different let us know and we'll get back to you. Many of these safaris allow you to fish for shark, but this is always done on a tag and release basis.
See Namibia in your own time and at your own speed - There are many good reason to drive yourself around Namibia, but it is a good idea to come prepared; thats where we come in. What is even better is that all this knowledge is yours absolutely free.
The faster way to see Namibia - Fly-In safaris are a great way to see Namibia. Fly-In safaris offer unparalleled opportunities for excellent photography, and are also the best way to fit in the vast spaces of Namibia into a shorter time. In a standard safari, you spend a lot of time travelling form one Namibian destination to another; on a fly-in safari you will have a lot more time to take in the highlights of Namibia. Consequently, these safaris are ideal for those who want to see a lot of Namibia but don't have a lot of time. Also, flying is the only way you'll see some parts of Namibia -- most parts of the Skeleton Coast Park and the Diamond Restricted Area are completely closed to ground traffic.
These fly-in safaris visit almost every part of Namibia; and are an ideal add on to an exisiting safari or self-drive package, as they allow you to see some of the more remote areas of Namibia very quickly. Trips range from only a few hours to an entire day, with the longer trips including a ground package. Some of the ground packages include meeting the Himba people of Kaokoland, or the San people in the Kalahari, or a game drive on a private game farm. These flights represent excellent value for money and are ideal if you are short of time, but really want to see a particular part of Namibia.
Horse Riding adventures in Namibia - These safaris are ideal for anyone who enjoys horse riding in the great outdoors. Some rides require the rider to be a competent rider while others will appeal to the novice horse rider. Whatever your level of equestrian experience there can be few better ways to experience the vast open spaces of Namibia.
Other Kinds of Safaris - Sometimes you want to do something completely different. We've had people cycling from Windhoek to Sossusvlei, ballooning over the Sand dunes or riding across the Namib.
Hiking, Four Wheel Driving, Fishing, Sandboarding and Quadbiking - If you're into the great outdoors Namibia has a lot to offer. On these pages you will find numerous outdoor activities, some of them require a good deal of physical exertion while others are more relaxing. If you're looking for an adrenaline rush, a five day hike or a balloon ride over the dunes at Sossusvlei this is the place for you.
The water in most Namibian towns (such as Windhoek) may taste a bit funny to the unaccustomed palate, but it's really quite safe. In more remote areas, you may want to think in terms of drinking bottled water or bringing water purification tablets and then boiling it again just to be sure. If you want to be really safe, you should be aware that the brewing process of Namibian beer is known to kill all contaminants.
