Although not as well known as some of its African neighbours, Namibia is a gem for those in search of the wilderness. Namibia is a large, and sparsely populated country on Africa’s south-west coast, which has enjoyed more than a decade of stability since achieving Independence on 21 March 1990.
Today Namibia is a peaceful country which is economically prosperous as a result of its productive mining, fishing, tourism and agricultural industries. Essentially a desert country, Namibia offers contrasting landscapes. The desolate Namib Desert is said to be the oldest in the world, with its high dunes and awe-inspiring sense of space. The central plateau, with its thorn bush savannah and rugged mountains, rising abruptly from the plains, gives way to the majestic Fish river Canyon in the south. In the north of the country, landscapes range from dense bush and open plains of the great Etosha Pan, to woodland savannah and lush vegetation.
The Etosha national park, the third largest in Africa, owes its unique landscape to the Etosha Pan, a vast shallow depression of approximately 5 000km². A series of waterholes along the southern edge of the pan guarantee rewarding and often spectacular game viewing. Germanic influence can still be found in the country’s good road infrastructure, well-equipped rest camps throughout the country and most cities’ architecture. The perfect choice for nature lovers and amateur photographers alike.
With its pleasantly warm and dry climate, clean air, good water and an unspoilt coast, vast untouched scenery and nature conservation areas, and excellent infrastructure, Namibia is healthy by nature and sheer bliss for body and soul. It is in fact one of the few countries in Africa where tourists do not have to worry unduly about picking up health problems.
It is a land of compelling beauty, abundant sunshine, wide horizons, endless stretches of golden sands and seas of red dunes, rocky plains, beaches and nature. Discover the most remote area with us on one of our exciting camping safaris. It is off the beaten track, and many of the areas visited do not have the infrastructure that the package tourist may require.
Our experienced Namibian guides and well equipped four wheel drive vehicles and equipment promise an unforgettable adventure. The knowledge and expertise of these guides have been invaluable in putting together camping tours, which take you into sometimes desolate and inhospitable terrain.
Included in all our safaris are full en suite accommodation. Three meals are also included and are provided in our classic safari dining tent. Meals are prepared by a trained bush chef and kitchen team. Breakfasts consist of a continental served with delicious fresh fruit juices, ground coffee and a tea selection as well as a full English Breakfast. Scrumptious lunches including hot and cold selections tailor made to tantalize your taste buds. Buffet dinners offer a variety of tastes and specialties of the area in which you are traveling as well as venison options to ensure guests experience African cuisine at its best.
