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

"Our trip around Namibia was great, thanks mostly to our guide Sonja. She took such good care of us, was humorous, competent and a great driver. Her calmness and hospitality made it possible for us to enjoy landscapes and wildlife in a completely relaxed atmosphere – we didn’t have to take care of a thing."

Today, sharing her love for her home country with our guests is what makes tour guiding such a rewarding experience for her.
