Private guides have been there, done that. Not because they have to but because they want to. Exploring, adventure and travel is in their blood. The wilderness is their backyard. They can’t wait to share it with you.
Our private guides know their stuff. They're like 'Google in the flesh' on all things flora, fauna, history, culture, geology - the list goes on, but it's not just about the facts. They know the who, what, when, where, why and how. It's the stories behind the facts that bring destinations to life, and if you are traveling with kids, good stories will keep them engaged far longer. A private guided safari is much more than just having your own personal Encyclopedia on tour with you.
Ask all the questions you want. With a private tour guide, you can tailor your tour to your particular interests. Your guide is flexible and so is your schedule. Wake up early for an adventure, snap the sunset or lie in for the morning. Whatever you decide, your guide will know how best to maximise your time, make sure you get the most of the destination, discover the unknown (to you, not to him) and enhance your experience. It's hassle-free travel.
If you are more into photography or astronomy, whether you are traveling with the family, visiting from a foreign country or already knowledgable about the basics of the destination, your guide will make the most of your trip.
A private guided safari will help you gain a comfort level that you can carry throughout the rest of your travels. At ease from the start to finish. Your guide can help arrange lunch packs, check-ins, give advice on where to eat and help with bookings. They'll also gladly go with you and show you how to order, even how to eat something if you’re not familiar with it.
Don't speak Himba? No problem, your guide knows culture. Dying to see the Southern Cross? He's got a laser pointer. Desperate to see a dune lark? He'll do his level best. He knows where to find them. While you have a private guide, take advantage of their knowledge and their years of experience.
All that they know and have experienced, they cannot wait to share with you and they'll do it all while putting you at ease and getting to know you and your preferences.
Your guide may well be a stranger when you meet him, but you'll be leaving with not only a new found love for Namibia, but a friend in your guide too.
Let their stories become a part of yours. Better yet - become a part of theirs.
