Namibia

  • Hennie and Jeff found us through Travelspinner.com and travelled around NamibiaThe trip of a lifetime! We felt like rock stars, flying in and out of camps and lodges, with never a moment’s doubt about a pickup or transfer. The recommended itinerary – arrived at after quite a bit of back and forth, since we were limited by time and had peculiar wishes, such as a preference for landscape and culture rather than game – suited us perfectly. I’d recommend Rob Slater to anyone planning a trip to Namibia.
    Safari Consultants booked us 4 days with Johan Burger through Kunene Tours, and this camping segment proved to be the highlight of the trip. We found Johan super easy going, super well informed and prepared, and seemed to have radar as far as finding game was concerned – in short a dream camping trip was the result. We saw way more wildlife than we expected, and got as close to the land and culture as I think it’s possible to get in 9 days.Hennie and Jeff found us through Travelspinner.com and travelled around Namibia

Namibia

Pricing

Namibia is one of the few African destinations to really offer the full spectrum of prices, from cheap camping tours and modest self-drive options to hugely expensive private expeditions and luxury fly-in safaris. It is possible to see much of the country on a reasonable budget, but some of the more remote parts of Namibia can only be accessed by expensive air transfers, or on more specialist overland tours which tend to be more expensive too.

Typically, a tailor-made two week self-drive holiday, including economy flights from the UK, will start at around £2750.00 per person in low season, and rise to somewhere between £3500.00 and £5000.00 per person in the shoulder and high seasons. If you fly between destinations or choose very exclusive, upmarket properties or private safaris, then the price can easily be much higher. December to March is generally considered low season, April to June and November, shoulder, and July to October, high season.

We appreciate that going on safari in Africa is an expensive holiday, but we are always conscious of providing ‘value for money’. Our selection of properties for any itinerary is based entirely upon those which we feel will most closely match your requirements, whether that be budget driven or experience driven. It is sometimes very difficult to differentiate between a top-quality safari property, and one which offers a lesser experience. Accordingly, a safari which offers value for money should not necessarily be confused with a ‘cheap’ safari.

If you are planning your first safari, we suggest you look at our Planning a Safari section. We do not offer mainstream package tours (minibus tours), coastal package tours or cheap camping trips.
