Why You'll Love this Tour

If Namibia is ‘Africa for beginners’ then this safari tour is the best way to start. Revel in the stark beauty of the world’s oldest desert while quad biking across lunar landscapes, plunging down gigantic sand dunes, and camping out under a sea of stars. And when you start to wonder if you've fallen off the end of the earth, Etosha National Park surprises with big cats, bigger elephants, black rhinos and plains game in abundance.

  • Your tour requires participation from all group members. This entails assisting with the food preparation, washing of dishes, keeping the truck clean and the setting up the camp. Please keep in mind that flexibility and an open mind is needed on the trip. Your guide is registered with the Field Guide Association of Southern Africa (FGASA) and the tour has been designed to include all highlights in the price and thus avoid any hidden surprises. The camping tour provides all equipment, including camp stretcher beds, tents, camp chairs. Travellers can bring supplementary mattress if desired.
