Children from the age of 12 are welcome on the Namibia Wilderness Safari. Due to the wilderness setting of the semi-permanent camps, it is a prerequisite that children aged between 12 and 16 years share a tent with a parent or related adult. For parties with children under 12, a private tailor-made safari can be quoted for on request. Speak to us for details.
The Namibia Wilderness Safari is conducted in English.
The safari includes transport in a safari vehicle and the services of an experienced guide; airport transfers; camping in private semi-permanent camps; accommodation in guesthouses, lodges and tented safari camps; park entrance fees and usually three meals a day as specified in the itinerary.
This guided safari to Namibia includes three meals on most days. The exceptions to this are lunch and dinner in Windhoek on Day 1, dinner in Swakopmund on Day 5, lunch and dinner in Windhoek on Day 11 and lunch on Day 12.
Whilst travelling in the safari vehicle, still bottled water is available on a complimentary basis. When staying at the exclusive mobile camps in the Kulala and Damaraland reserves, tea and coffee will be available at no additional charge. At all the other lodges, guesthouses and camps the system varies: some offer water, tea and coffee on a complimentary basis, others will charge for this. All other drinks are extra and to be paid for by you.
There is a luggage limit of 20kg (44lbs) per person and a requirement that only soft squashable bags be used. No hard suitcases or bags with rigid frames are accepted as these are difficult to pack in the safari vehicle.
A laundry service is available whilst staying at the Hansa Hotel in Swakopmund and at Ongava Tented Camp near Etosha Park. There will be an additional charge for this which is to be settled directly with the hotel/camp.
Tipping is not compulsory whilst on this safari adventure through Namibia. If, however, you want to tip because you have received good service, we recommend a discretionary GBP 7 / USD 10 per person per day for your safari guide and GBP 3 / USD 5 per person per day for safari camps and lodges. The latter should be placed in the communal tipping box to be distributed equally amongst all the staff. About 10% is standard in for restaurant service.
Visa & passport requirements
When travelling to Namibia you must ensure that your passport is valid for at least 6 months after the conclusion of your trip. You must also have at least 3 clear pages for passport stamps.
Our current understanding is that travellers on American, Canadian, British, New Zealand and Australian passports do not require visas for visiting Namibia as a tourist. However, regulations in Africa can change without notice so it is your responsibility to contact your nearest embassy or high commission to double check visa requirements. You are also welcome to speak to us for more details and the latest information we have to hand.
