Namibia – where the desert meets the ocean
Namibia is unlike anything you have ever imagined: from red dunes towering in the clear morning sky to orange sunsets colouring the lush riverbanks, from deserted mining towns to idyllic hiking trails, from lions in Etosha National Park to seals at the Skeleton Coast. There is just one thing you won’t find in Namibia: many people. If you want to leave behind the world as you know it, travel to Namibia. Be curious.
What to expect when travelling Namibia
Types of Travel in Namibia
As varied as the country itself are the ways to travel it. Our experienced consultants and dedicated operations team on-site are there for you every step of the way.
Long driving distances and a country with so much to discover and to learn – alongside our experienced tour guides you can fully appreciate your guided lodge tour around Namibia. Go with your family and friends only or join our small group tours. Travelling in our Toyota Land Cruisers by day, enjoy the hospitality and amenities of intimate guesthouses and lodges by night. Spectacular views and delicious meals to be expected.
On our guided camping tours you will get out of the car, take in the sounds and smells and colours, shake hands and respond to smiles. After a dusty, adventure-filled day travelling Namibia in our Land Cruisers, listen as the nightly bush concert begins. A hearty bush dinner in your tummy, curl up in your tent under the vast Namibian sky. A guided camping tour in Namibia is for the nature-lovers, the adventurers, the young-at-heart. Are you one of them?
Staggering landscapes, scenic hikes, and wildlife encounters – you want to experience all of the above, but at your own pace? On a self-drive tour in Namibia, you can go left, when others go right, can linger while others hurry. Our experienced consultants have travelled Namibia themselves, and together you plan your unique self-drive trip. We share our favourite routes and places, design your itinerary, book your accommodations and reliable rental vehicle. You get the keys, take out the map and head on an epic road trip.
On a hiking trip around Namibia, you can fully immerse yourself in this country like no other. Hike along scenic trails to hidden caves where bushman rock art gives evidence of Namibia’s ancient history. Standing on steep cliffs, take a deep breath and take in the views across the vast land. Hikes vary from short walks to extended hikes. At night, you can loosen your hiking boots, dust off and enjoy the hospitality of Namibia’s guesthouses and lodges.
Thank you for a perfectly organised trip to Namibia; it was truly fantastic. We usually organise our trips ourselves, but the individual self-drive safari you tailored for us suited us perfectly.- Thomas Schaub | Germany
We appreciated our Land Cruiser very much and were happy not to have to sit in an air-conditioned coach. In our car, we got a lot closer to nature and wildlife. Our request: don’t ever put air-conditioning in your vehicles – the Namibian air is so much better!!- Gerlinde | Germany
I couldn’t have asked for a better Guide than Barbara. Her love for and knowledge about the country, flora and fauna, the people and the (political) developments were unique, just as her calm personality and trust in us. She contributed a lot to the positive group dynamic.- Maja Geigenmüller | Germany

Meet our Namibia Guides
Experience Namibia through the eyes of locals.
Mattheus NdinetiEXPERT IN NAMIBIA
Since his high school days in Germany and in Namibia’s Swakopmund, Mattheus always had the urge to be outdoors and spend time in nature. After a few detours, he eventually made the transition from lodge management of one of southern Namibia’s most well-known lodges to being a tour guide and on the road with us. When travelling with Mattheus, you will not only learn about Namibia’s flora and fauna, but about its complex and ancient history of which he is an expert. He will share his Namibia with you and get you involved from the very first day, so you can see and experience Namibia through the eyes of a local.
Mattheus speaks English and German.
Wolfgang RamdohrEXPERT IN NAMIBIA
As a trained zoologist, Wolfgang loves to share his in-depth knowledge about Namibian wildlife with his guests. His other passions include plants, particularly trees, as well as geology. Wolfgang grew up in Windhoek and returned to Namibia after studying in South Africa and travelling around Europe. He loves Namibia for its varied flora and fauna and the many extremes you find here. He is captivated by the fact that Namibia’s habitats “allow a view into the geological past” thanks to the country’s dry climate and its sparse vegetation. Wolfgang has previously worked as a guide in Botswana and Zimbabwe before becoming part of the Namibia-Experience team in 2017. He strives to send his guests home relaxed and full of new experiences. As an avid photographer himself, he will also make sure that you always get the perfect angle for your photographs.
Wolfgang speaks English, German, and Afrikaans.
Enrico ZyndaEXPERT IN NAMIBIA
Enrico has been working in the tourism industry since the early 90s. After growing up in Namibia, he worked in various other countries and even on cruise ships. When he returned to Namibia, becoming a tour guide just seemed like the next logical step for him. He loves travelling inside and outside of his home country. As a real Namibian, he has a lot of knowledge about the country and loves to share his local insights with our guests. What makes Namibia special for Enrico is its diversity and vastness. His favourite place is Vierkantklip just outside of Swakopmund, where the dunes meet the Atlantic Ocean with the road in between. What Enrico loves most about his job is that he learns new things every day, on every tour and from all his guests.
Enrico speaks English, German, and Afrikaans.
Lesley MootsengEXPERT IN NAMIBIA
Lesley never planned on becoming a guide. After finishing school in Namibia, he lived in Germany for ten years where he trained and worked as a male nurse. When he returned to Namibia, he fell in love with guiding and says he “still loves it like the first day”. He loves everything about his job, from spending time with his guests to solving problems while on tour. He is also a passionate driver. Lesley proudly says of himself that he “always gives 100%”, and he is especially good with families. What he thinks makes Namibia special are the wide, open spaces and that you can “hear the silence”. He is also fascinated by the country’s many contrasts in terms of landscape, culture and climate. He hopes that his guests understand nature better after being on tour with him, so that they can fact-check what Discovery channel says about Namibia.
Lesley speaks German, English, Afrikaans.
Lars JahnEXPERT IN NAMIBIA
Our Guide Lars has made it his mission to excite people from all over the world for the fantastic country that is Namibia. He enjoys being in nature and getting to know different cultures while meeting a variety of people. His goal is to pass on as much of his knowledge to his guests as possible. What Lars loves most about Namibia is the incredible diversity of animals and nature, the vastness of the country, the kind people, and the good food. Lars is an expert in ethnology and knows a lot about Namibia’s colonial history. He is also very knowledgeable about the country’s wildlife. Lars hopes that after going on safari with him, his guests will want to come back to Namibia to experience and see even more.
