End of Itinerary
Rundu – Windhoek (800 km) (BL)
Another early start and another long drive. We head south through Kavango Province, down through the towns of Grootfontein, Otjiwarongo and Okahandja before reaching our final destination, Windhoek. There will be stops at some of the local woodcarving stalls as well as the market at Okahandja before arriving in the city.
You will be dropped off at your accommodation.
Maximum group size is 14 people, with a minimum of 1 participant. Transport for up to 5 people will be in a minibus and for 6 people and more in a specialized vehicle.
Unless otherwise specified, all safaris will be conducted in English.
Clients are limited to one soft, barrel type bag per person with maximum weight of 15kg, one medium sized hand luggage bag, one medium sized camera bag and a sleeping bag.
We suggest a sleeping bag range of “3 – 4 season”. Sleeping bags can be hired by prior arrangement for a cost of N$35.00 per sleeping bag per night. When selecting your clothing please be aware that Namibian summer temperatures (December – March) can reach 45*C and winter temperatures (June – September) can be as low as -5*C. The rainy season is between December and April.
All evening meals on camping safaris (unless stipulated) are cooked on an open fire. Salads and fresh vegetables will be served daily where readily available. Fresh fruit will also be supplied when possible. We cater for vegetarians, but please notify us prior to departure.
Airport transfers and pre-and-post safari accommodation can be arranged on request.
It is customary in Namibia to tip 10% at restaurants.
Your guide and assistant can be tipped at your own discretion, but we ask that the guide be tipped separately from your assistant.
What electrical adaptors do I need for Namibia?
Electrical plugs are 220 V and are 3 pin (round-pin as opposed to square pin, the same as in South Africa). Adaptors can be purchased in Windhoek and
What is limited participation camping?
Limited participation camping is assisted camping with the participation limited to only helping with the tent. No help needed with any food preparation or other camp duties. You can just sit back, relax and let us take care of you.
Is there anywhere to do laundry?
Whilst we hope that your trip will be chore free and very relaxing, we understand that you may want to wash one or two items of clothing while out on safari! If you are on one of our scheduled, camping trips there will be laundry facilities (with washing machines) in the bigger towns such as Swakopmund and Windhoek. While out on the road, we recommend that you pack a bar or tube of laundry detergent that you will be able to use for smaller items of clothing at your campsite. With Namibia’s dry climate, items normally dry quite quickly overnight.
If you are staying in lodges on your safari, the majority (but not all) will offer a laundry service. This will depend on the specific lodge / hotel. We suggest checking directly with your lodge or getting in touch with us if you have any specific questions.
Should I tip my guide?
If you feel that your guide or assistant have really gone the extra mile to make your safari a truly memorable experience, then please do feel free to show your gratitude with a tip! Our tipping guideline for both guides and assistants is approximately N$20.00 to N$40.00 per assistant/guide, per client, per day of safari. Sometimes guests find it easier to work as a group on this and collect two separate amounts in two envelopes. This avoids unnecessary complications for the guide and assistant when they try to decide what their share is! Please remember that tipping is at your own discretion and the above is just a guideline. Tipping is only if you feel your crew deserve it. What vehicle will I travel in on safari?
