The Ultimate Namibia Journey is led by an English speaking guide.
The Ultimate Namibia Journey includes transport in an air-conditioned safari vehicle; airport transfers; accommodation in a mixture of guesthouses, camps and lodges; park entrance fees; mineral water whilst travelling in the safari vehicle and usually three meals a day as specified in the itinerary.
The Ultimate Namibia Journey includes all meals except for lunch and dinner in Windhoek on Day 1, dinner in Windhoek on Day 11 and lunch on Day 12.
A complimentary stock of mineral water is always available to you on your safari vehicle. All other drinks will be at additional cost to you, payable locally. Your safari vehicle is equipped with a fridge in which you are welcome to store your drinks.
Most of the lodges whilst on this Ultimate Namibian Journey offer a laundry service at an additional cost. Laundry is generally only possible when spending more than one night at a lodge.
Tipping is not compulsory in Namibia. If, however, you want to tip because you have received good service, we recommend a discretionary GBP 8 / US 10 per day per person for your safari guide and GBP 4 / US 5 per day per person at the lodges. The latter should be placed in the communal tipping box to be distributed equally amongst all the lodge staff. About 10% is normal in restaurants.
Visa & passport requirements
It is our understanding that most nationalities do not require a visa to visit South Africa or Namibia. However, it is imperative that you have onward travel documents, that your passport is valid for at least 6 months from your departure date, and that you have at least 3 clear visa pages in your passport for immigration stamps. If you do not fulfill these requirements you may be refused entry into the country.
Note that these are only guidelines. Immigration regulations in Africa can change with very little notice so it is your responsibility to double check requirements with the embassy or high commission nearest to you.
