Namibia Camping Safaris

If you love the outdoors, you will love Africa. If you’re wild at heart and ready for adventure, you’ll love camping in Namibia and while camping is for the more adventurous traveller, it’s all about the experience. Find a shady spot, set up camp and sleep under a billion-star sky.

While the idea of camping is often described as ‘roughing it’, you won’t be sleeping in your car on the side of the road - in the middle of nowhere - left to fend for yourself in the wilderness. You certainly won’t be rubbing sticks together to make a fire or foraging in the bush for something to eat. In fact, it’s all pretty civilised and rather more ‘glamping’ if we need give it a name.

Namibia has some impressive campsites that we’d say even trump a few of the more standard lodges and while it is back to basics when camping, what more do you need when you have the beauty of Namibia all around you? Just add good company and you’re all set.

While it’s back to basics: a fireplace for meals, an often shared “kitchen” and wash up area and limited electricity, there are most times enough lights in camp, warm showers and fresh water so it’s not entirely rudimentary.

A Namibia camping safari is down-to-earth in every sense. It’s about stripping back the luxuries and finding yourself entirely immersed in nature. It’s more than just sleeping in a tent or making food over an open fire. It’s about the adventure and the experience. An experience Namibia offers in heaps and she never disappoints.

Sure it may mean sandy feet, open-air showers and getting acquainted with some local critters, but that’s all a part of it. It’s what makes a camping safari a safari like no other.

Pitch your tent beneath a shady acacia. Set up your roof-top tent with a view. A sundowner goes down well to end the day as you sit relaxing in your canvas chair and there’s truly something amazing about the crackle of the fire as dark sets in and the night sky comes to life. All around you pure nature. It’s real and so worth it.  

We know the best places to camp, how long you need to stay without having to set up camp every day, where you’ll need to stock up on supplies and we’ll make sure you have everything you need. From warm bedding to cooking utensils and a fridge (or cooler box).  Mix it up with lodges along the way to do a combo tour. Splurge where it’s really worth it and go luxury for a night or two in-between. We’ll ensure it’s a holiday to remember. Who said a camping safari couldn’t be a five star experience?
