Ostrich and dunes Ostrich and dunes Randy Green

Want your own exploration of this exciting safari destination? Want to do some serious photography, bird or wildlife watching at your own pace? Or simply want to travel when one of our regular Namibia tours isn't available?

We'll customize your Namibia safari by trip length, your interests and method of travel (by flying or driving), and provide one of Namibia's top guides as well. And, often for a price that's not too much more than our regularly scheduled safaris, depending on the number of people traveling.

Choose from a wide variety of lodging on both private land and in Namibia's many excellent national parks and reserves. 

A short list of exciting activities:

  • Scale some of the world's tallest sand dunes at Sossuvlei
  • Take a dawn flight in a hot air balloon over the dunes and desert
  • Venture into the vast Skeleton Coast and see eye-to-eye with Cape Cross seals in their huge colonies
  • Watch and photograph the endless stream of wildlife streaming into the waterholes of Etosha National Park
  • Visit a nomadic tribe of Himbas, living much as they did more than a century ago

Begin your safari planning by using our Contact Form and let us know your time of year, trip length and areas of interest, or better yet, give one of our safari planners a call. We'll help you in the planning process and create a custom trip that fits your interests and needs exactly.

This option is perfect for couples and families or friends traveling together, or serious photographers who would like their own guide and vehicle!

Camp Kipwe: Camp Kipwe is ideally located a short drive from the local attractions in the area. The Camp is nestled amongst an outcrop of giant granite boulders a stone's throw away from the ephemeral Aba Huab riverbed where desert adapted elephants often traverse. Each comfortable thatched bungalow is simply but tastefully furnished with en-suite open-air bathroom. In the centre of the camp lies a large alfresco dining area, bar, lounge and reception with an inviting fireplace nearby to relax beside in the evenings. A refreshing swimming pool and sunset lookout with lovely views also complement the Camp.

 Andersson's Camp: Located just 4.5 km from Etosha National Park's Andersson Gate, Andersson's Camp takes its name from Charles Andersson, the Swedish explorer who first 'discovered' the Etosha Pan with Sir Francis Galton in 1851. Set against a backdrop of the low Ondundozonanandana Mountains, Andersson's Camp is located within the private Ongava Game Reserve which borders onto Etosha National Park. The Ongava Game Reserve is typified by white calcrete soils, rocky outcrops and scrub-covered plains which support a rich variety of game such as giraffe, lion, rhino and various antelope species. The Camp overlooks a waterhole where guests can enjoy the interaction of wildlife coming and going throughout the day and night.

This former farmstead has been tastefully rebuilt to modern-day standards. The design and construction of Andersson's Camp was guided primarily by the principles of environmental sustainability – reduce, reuse, recycle. The old farmhouse now forms the main dining, bar and swimming pool area of Andersson's Camp, with guest tents radiating outwards into the secluded Mopane woodlands typical of the region. Tents are constructed using a clever mix of calcrete stone cladding, canvas and wood, with double-door entrances and a small verandah that is an extension of the elevated wooden decks on which the tents are raised. The open-air en-suite bathrooms continue the unique design. Andersson's Camp's close proximity to Etosha National Park is ideal for game drive excursions into Etosha to take in the array of game found there.

 Wolwedans Dunes Lodge: This 20 bed Lodge is perched on top of a dunes plateau and overlooks panoramic vistas in all direction, capturing the desert in an intimate and memorable way. The building style is a combination of wooden poles and large canvas blinds/windows that open up to the desert beyond. Each of the nine spacious chalets has an en–suite bathroom which leads onto the private veranda looking out over stretches of untouched sand. The venue is an excellent base from which to explore the "landscape photographer's paradise" of the Namib Rand Nature Reserve.

Sossus Dune Lodge: Sossus Dune Lodge is built in an environmentally sensitive manner, primarily from wood, canvas and thatch, in an attractive 'afro–village' style. Situated within the Namib Naukluft Park, close to the Sesriem Canyon, and providing sweeping vistas of the dunes to the west, guests benefit from being able to reach Sossusvlei before sunrise, or to stay until after sunset. Accommodation units are interlinked by elevated wooden walkways, and consist of 23 well spaced en suite desert chalets, equipped with tea stations and small fridges, with an additional relaxation gazebo. All units offer magnificent open vistas of the surrounding landscapes. Sossus Dune Lodge offers a good base from which to go on guided excursions to Sossusvlei, Sesriem and the surrounding areas, as well as sunset drives and guided walks, to fully unleash the beauty and biological diversity of the desert environment.

Onguma Tree Top Camp: Tree Top is a unique and beautiful camp, situated on the Onguma Game Reserve, bordering on the eastern side of Etosha National Park. It is a small and intimate camp, especially designed for those travellers who would like to truly experience the bush in all its raw splendour. This Camp is built on wooden stilts amongst the tree tops with full views over one of the most beautiful watering holes on the Reserve. The Camp consists of 4 thatched wooden chalets and a main complex, making the camp ideal for a small group looking for a private getaway.

The main complex is completely open towards the front where the waterhole is situated, but there is also the option of letting down canvas sides if the weather is inclement. Guests can relax in the comfortable lounge or in front of the fire place. The kitchen is open plan so guests can watch whilst the chef conjures up wonderful dishes on an open fire. The Boma area steps off from the lounge deck, where guests can relax while watching the animals and birds that frequent the hole throughout the day. The four thatched rooms are designed in such a way that the canvas sides can be opened to expose breath-taking view and animals any time. All rooms have an en-suite bathroom as well as a wonderful private outside shower, and a private deck in front where guests can relax and enjoy exactly the same views as from the main area's deck.

Huab Lodge: Located in Damaraland Namibia, the lodge began as an idea to generate funds to save Namibia's desert–dwelling elephants from being harassed and shot. The owners, Jan and Suzi Van de Reep, are veterans of wildlife safaris in Namibia, having established one of the earliest safari companies based in famed Etosha National Park.

The original farm was a small, unique area called Monte Carlo which boasts stunning views bisected by the mostly dry Huab River. The former rest camp which accommodated tourists in the 1970s now houses the lodge's staff. Huab Lodge was erected at a special site just down river from the old rest camp, where the Germans built the so-called German Bath in the late 1800s. In spite of its size, the unique main building blends well into its surroundings. The lodge's stone and thatch bungalows streatch along the elevated north bank of the river and insure a private, stunning view – even from the shower!

The lodge is run almost exclusively on solar power.

Huab Lodge has so much to offer and because of its remote location is not a place for a single night-stop. Allow several days to enjoy and absorb the tranquillity and quiet, the welcoming and comfortable atmosphere, and the many activities at the lodge. It's a favorite among birders, and a game walk with Jan, one of Namibia's top naturalists and top birder, is an unforgettable experience. There is an airstrip nearby the lodge.
