We operate in southern Africa, namely Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe and South Africa. Book accommodation, tours, activities, transport and regional flights with us.
We do bookings for lodges/establishments throughout Namibia, especially the Caprivi regions. We also have very good working relations with many lodges and activity operators in Zimbabwe, Botswana and Zambia.
For over 19 years we have been arranging and leading tours and safaris throughout Namibia and into the neighbouring countries of Botswana, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe. The tours we have listed are the tried and tested favourites. We always adjust them to suit each client's needs and in effect, no two tours are ever the same.
With most of our tours and safaris you have the choice of guided, self-drive, fly-in or any combination of the three. The choice will depend on your time, budget and personal preferences.
We offer Day and overnight trips to Victoria Falls, Chobe Game Park, and lodges and camps in the Caprivi Game Parks (Mamili/Mudumu and Bwabwata). All of these areas are part of the KAZA-Transfrontier Park (Kavango/Zambezi Transfrontier Park) - an initiative between the Governments of Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia, Zambia and Angola to ensure free passage for wildlife on their natural migration routes. We offer cultural activities in the Caprivi.
The Swakopmund office is managed by Karen Sharpe and is predominately a booking agent with an emphasis on the Caprivi where Karen hopes to enlighten people to the beauty of the Caprivi Region - Namibia's Wetland Paradise. The Swakop staff are available to assist anyone with information or bookings for the Caprivi, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Zambia.

The difference between a tour and a safari in our part of the world is largely semantic. A useful distinction is that safaris are mostly have a significant element of game viewing whereas tours can include photographic, scenic, historical, cultural and specialised aspects of the natural world.
While you may earn bonus points by arranging car hire from home there are many advantages to booking locally:
The wear and tear on vehicles has forced car hire companies to adopt severe insurance penalties. We can advise and arrange for the most suitable waivers depending on your plans.
Every destination and every lodge has several must-do, must-see activities. Most are included in the accommodation price, some are extras. We have compiled a list of those extra activities and have negotiated excellent rates with the operators, which we always pass on to our clients.
We are not, however, a registered activity-booking office and can only make activity bookings as part of your existing itinerary.
Your inbound return flight should always be booked from your home country. Thereafter, we will make all local and regional flight bookings for you. We also arrange for transfers to and from airports and landing strips so your travel is as smooth as it should be.
We make every effort to ensure our information about lodges, tours, and activities is correct. However the size of the country and the nature of the industry prevents us from offering any guarantees. If there is any aspect of your holiday that is important to you, please confirm the details with us prior to making a booking.
