This safari travels the classic route through Namibia, encompassing its key highlights. Experience the country in depth with a knowledgeable and professional guide. Stay in a combination of good lodges and comfortable guesthouses, with adventurous nights spent under canvas at luxury mobile camps where each tent has comfortable beds and is en-suite. Visit the fascinating Cheetah Conservation Fund and learn about their admirable work in conserving Namibia's cheetah population, before searching them out on safari drives in Etosha National Park. Marvel at ancient rock art at Twyfelfontein, a UNESCO World Heritage Site; enjoy coastal activities and colonial history in Swakopmund; and be awestruck by the tallest dunes on earth at Sossusvlei.
You will be led by a professional and personable local guide throughout the Classic Namibia Experience. The safari guides are picked carefully and trained well. They speak good English and will give you a fascinating local perspective as well as an understanding about the sights you encounter. You will be able to learn a lot about Namibia; its flora and fauna, different cultures, history, geology and much more. Your guide will be able to identify all of the animals, many of the birds, and some of the plants that you see.
A safari crew and a camp chef travel in a separate vehicle and will erect your luxury mobile camp ready for your arrival whilst you take a more exploratory route with your guide. The camp crew will take care of all the camp logistics, ensuring you have relaxing and comfortable nights under canvas.
Luxury mobile camps
Whilst in the exclusive luxury mobile camp you will stay in twin-bedded, spacious walk-in safari tents. The comfortable beds have thick mattresses, linen, duvets, pillows and blankets. Each tent is furnished with a canvas luggage rack, a safari trunk and bedside tables with small reading lamps.
In a separate compartment of your tent is an en-suite bathroom with bucket shower and an environmentally friendly chemical toilet. Each bathroom also has a hand basin, mirror, towels and complimentary toiletries.
Although lighting is provided around camp and in your tent, we recommend that you also bring your own torch to use in less well lit areas around camp such as walking between your tent and the dining tent.
The vehicle usually used for the Classic Namibia Experience is a 4WD Land Rover with sliding windows, seatbelts and a pop-top roof.
Each vehicle is fitted with an inverter and a strip of plugs, allowing travellers the opportunity to charge batteries whilst travelling in the vehicle or when in camp. These vehicle plugs take a standard two-pin 220V charger that is usually supplied when you buy electrical equipment. If you do not have a two-pin charger, we recommend you purchase the necessary adaptor. The plugs in the vehicle are only to be used to recharge essential items such as camera batteries; they are not to be used for charging electric toothbrushes or for using electronics such as hairdryers.
For charging/using equipment when staying at lodges, the generic wall plugs in Namibia have 3 large round pins, 220V - the same style of plug that is also used in South Africa. It is relatively easy to find a suitable adaptor (generally described for use in South Africa) which we suggest you purchase for your luxury camping and lodge safari through Namibia.
