Children of all ages are welcome on the Exclusive Namibia Adventure. The only age restrictions are those applied by some of the lodges so we will help you choose child friendly accommodation for your family safari. Discounts may be possible on child accommodation for those aged 11 and under.
An English-speaking guide usually leads the Exclusive Namibia Adventure. A German, Italian, French or Spanish speaking guide may be sourced on request with prior notice, although generally at a surcharge.
The Exclusive Namibia Adventure includes transport in a custom built safari vehicle; transfers; accommodation in guesthouses, hotels and lodges; mineral water and juice whilst traveling in the safari vehicle; park entrance fees; and usually three meals a day as specified in the itinerary.
Mineral water and juice is available when travelling in the safari vehicle. Drinks are not included at the lodges and when dining out at restaurants; the bill for these must be settled locally by you.
A laundry service is available at most lodges for a fee. To allow time, it is best make use of the laundry service at lodges where you are staying two nights or more.
Ideally, please travel with soft-sided bags rather than hard suitcases so that your luggage can easily fit into the baggage space. Luggage is normally restricted to 20kg (44lbs) per person, not including photographic equipment. However, weight is usually less important than volume as everything is transported with you in the safari vehicle or trailer. It is possible to store any excess luggage at the base in Windhoek whilst on your safari.
Tipping in Namibia is customary but not compulsory. If you want to tip because you have received good service, we recommend a discretionary GBP 7 / US 10 per person per day for your safari guide (and any lodge guides, i.e. at Okonjima) and GBP 3 / US 5 per person per day for each of the camp crew. Lodge staff can be tipped (about GBP 3 / US 5 per person per day) using the communal tipping box at reception which is distributed equally amongst all the staff. About 10% is normal in restaurants, although your guide will cover this for all meals that are included in the safari price.
Visa & passport requirements
It is our current understanding that travellers with an American, Canadian, British, New Zealand or Australian passport do not need to apply for a visa in advance to visit South Africa or Namibia. A tourist visa will automatically be granted to you by immigration on arrival. You are required to have an onward flight ticket and your passport must be valid for a minimum of 6 months after you depart, with at least 3 clear pages for immigration stamps. Entry can be refused if travellers do not meet these requirements. Please note that visa requirements can change without warning and the responsibility is yours to ensure you double check the regulations with your local high commission or embassy before you travel.
