- Namibia is one of the least inhabited nations on earth, making it a perfect destination for a guided Namibia luxury wildlife safari tour
- Namibia is home of the Himba people and the Koi San tribe. Namibia rock art is thought to be 6000 years old, which makes Namibia one of the most interesting historical destinations in Africa.
- Namibia was Colonised by Germany and Britain. This means that Namibia has beautiful small coastal towns and buildings. A tailor-made tour of Namibia would take in the ghost town of Kolmanskop as well as Lüderitz.
- A 10 day Luxury Namibia Safari holiday is great value. Prices start at £2900.00 ($3625) per person.
We suggest the best Namibia safari is a minimum 10 day tour. The highlights on our 10 day tailor made Namibia safari are game drives in Etosha National Park, a tour through the Skeleton Coast National Park to see the shipwrecks and ending at the quaint fishing town of Swakopmund, followed by The Namib-Naukluft National Park while driving down to Sossusvlei. At Sossusvlei you would see the actual Namib Desert itself. The Namib Desert is the oldest desert in the world famous for its’ petrified trees and steep desert dunes. You then return to Windhoek Airport and would be flying out.
Namibia is so large, and there is so much to see, that your Namibia safari tour needs to be carefully planned. We do not feel that some of the standard Namibia Safari tours meet the expectations and needs of our clients. We organise Luxury Namibia Safaris at prices that may surprise you. Our Private Safaris in Namibia cater to most budgets from mid-range to truly luxurious.
Part of the wonder of a Namibia luxury safari is the journey itself. Namibia, much more than any other African country, demands your time. The ever changing views of Namibia from your safari vehicle are beyond compare. The endless vistas of desert, mountain, African bush and orange earth are simply not visible anywhere else on earth. Our Namibia Private Safaris always build in time to allow you to stop and take photographs, or simply to take in the expanse that is Namibia.
‘Safari’ comes from the Arabic word for journey. In Europe and the US, the word ‘Safari’ has now become synonymous with a luxury wildlife viewing tour. But a Namibian safari is not only a wondrous wildlife viewing experience, it truly is a journey. So let us take you on a unforgettable escorted Namibian Safari, a journey through the nation, seeing its landscapes, its animals and meeting Namibia’s friendly people. We invite you to join us and experience this Namibia, through your eyes.
If you had more time during your guided Namibia Safari tour, you could add a stay at the far flung Shipwreck Lodge. This incredible property is located on the famous Skeleton Coast between the Hoarusib and Hoanib Rivers. It is often fully booked and so advance booking is vital. www.shipwrecklodge.com.na
Another addition to your Namibia tour and safari would be to add a visit to the Diamond Ghost town of Kolmanskop. After a night in Aus, home of the pure bred desert horses, you would then end in the charismatic but weather-beaten town of Luderitz.
If you were interested in the ancient history of Africa, your luxury Namibia tailor made safari would include Twyfelfontein in the Kunene region. Twyfelfontein is located in north western Namibia between Etosha National Park and the Skeleton Coast National Park. A UNESCO world heritage site, Twyfelfontein is the site of the oldest concentration of rock art on the African continent, also known as petroglyphs. This site is so remote that you would need to add an extra two days to your Namibia guided safari tour. Over 2000 engravings can be found on rock formations and in caves surrounding Twyfelfontein
The best way to visit Namibia is on a tailor-made escorted safari. This is because of the long distances between Namibia points of interest. Our Namibia safari operator uses a selection of Toyota landcruisers, specifically adapted for private guided Namibia safaris. With a maximum capacity of six people, on a luxury Namibia Safari you will have the vehicle to yourselves. We will never combine your party with another. Private Safari means Private Safari.
We do not arrange Namibia self-drive tours. The reason for this is that you will only see your steering wheel and road. When on a luxury Namibia tour, you want to be able to see the landscape and the animals. You do not want to worry about where you are going. In addition, we believe it ethical to use companies that employ as many local people as possible. Apart from empowering the Namibian people, having a guide escorting you radically changes your experience for the positive.
Getting to Namibia has never been easier. Namibia may be off the beaten track, but Kutoka Hosea International Airport has a few connections to Europe and then on to the United States. Quality airlines such as KLM www.klm.com fly straight into Namibia. The Middle Eastern super carriers, Qatar www.flyqatar.com and Emirates www.emirates.com also land every day. But by far and away the easiest connection is South African Airways www.flysaa.com and British Airways www.ba.com who operate a flight to Namibia several times a day from Johannesburg and Cape Town. We are happy to organise flights for your tailor-made Namibia safari holiday – Simply ask us.
