Wanderings on Namibia’s Wild Side
With the first departure in November 2019 and five more in 2020, this new small-group tour should have a date that suits you.
Combining all the major highlights of Namibia, the exceptional group itinerary includes: Sossusvlei with its huge ancient dunes, and iconic Deadvlei, subject of so many photographs: the quaint German colonial seaside town of Swakopmund with nearby Walvis Bay from where you enjoy a catamaran cruise with oysters and bubbly; Damaraland, home to the UNESCO rock art site of Twyfelfontein and desert-adapted elephants; Etosha National Park, containing the best concentrations and widest range of wildlife in Namibia; and Okonjima, renowned for its exemplary AfriCat Foundation and much visited by the BBC’s Chris Packham.
All departures will be led by Orlando Huaseb, a Certified First Class Tour Guide and silver medal winner in 2015’s Wanderlust Magazine’s World Guide awards. Orlando is perhaps Namibia’s premier birding and general wildlife guide and his knowledge, professionalism and respect for nature will be apparent to all the groups’ members. Please Note: If for any reason Orlando is unavailable at any point, a replacement guide of similar calibre will be taking his place. Furthermore, there will be local guides on hand at some locations, such as during the catamaran cruise from Walvis Bay.
Transport will be in a specially customised seven-seat safari vehicle with pop-up top for optimal viewing: the vehicle has been hand crafted to strict specifications so that every guest has a comfortable window seat, equipped with super deluxe reclining seats with good back support.
With a maximum of seven people, good accommodation and a great deal of excursions included, this group tour offers exceptional value for those wishing to travel in comfort with like-minded people in the company of Namibia’s most sought-after guide.
