Best Namibia Safari Tours

November 10, 2023

Private. Remote. Exclusive. Off-the-beaten-track and otherworldly. You could spend a lifetime exploring it all and you’d still be planning your next return safari. Here’s a look at some of our best Namibia safari tours.

  1. Extravagant Namibia Fly-in Safari
  2. Namibia Highlights - Private Guided Safari
  3. Namibia, Delta, Chobe and Victoria Falls – Self-drive Safari

Namibia is known as Africa’s most remote corner. It’s all about the endless contrasting landscapes of the Namib Desert, the elusive desert adapted animals on the barren Skeleton Coast and prolific wildlife safaris in the famous Etosha National Park - and of course there’s everything in between.

Whether you focus solely on the highlights of Namibia or combine your Namibia Safari with Botswana, Zimbabwe and/ or South Africa, it’s guaranteed to be the safari tour of a lifetime.

Namibia is a year-round destination and despite the long distances between the main attractions, it’s the journey and not solely the destination that makes it a bucket list country to explore.

Here’s a look at some of our best Namibia safari tours to get started. They are tried and tested as the greats chosen by our returning clients and our travel experts. Get browsing and then speak to a travel expert to book your itinerary as below or to further tailor your safari tour specifically to the type of traveller you are.
