So you've decided that you want to go on safari in Namibia and now you need to choose an operator to guide your trip. With so many possibilities, where do you begin?
The best place, I believe, is to ask others who have been on a trip with that company already for their impressions of how the company performed.
That way you can get first hand and unbiased advice right from where it matters most. The person who experienced the trip.
So that is essentially what I have done to compile the top three safari in Namibia operators list. I can accurately find out peoples experience of a company from the trip reports they sent to me over the years at the African Safari Journals website.
Only the ones that have received excellent reviews make it onto the top three list. That doesn't mean that you are certain to have the same experience yourself but it does cut out the ones that under perform regularly.
I also (more about me) keep my ear to the ground in industry exhibitions, forums, newsletters and travel magazines to find out who the top performers are.
To compare oranges with oranges it is much more effective to list safari in Namibia operators by sorting them into three different rates categories. Low season rates can be about 25% less than high season rates. The rate indications below exclude international and inter-Africa airfares.
Out Of This World: Prices range from $650 upwards per person per night spent on safari.
Luxury: Between $350 and $650 per person per night spent on safari.
Standard (camping where applicable): Up to $350 per person per night spent on safari.
The companies are listed in no particular order other than alphabetical. Safari in Namibia trip reports form the basis for this ranking...
I've been referring people to many of the above safari companies for the better part of twelve years now, and their track records have been proven over time.
They are all excellent at what they do but I've found over the years that some are stronger than others at certain things, so depending on your own unique safari requirements I can point you in the direction of the one that will be the best fit for you.
You are welcome to contact each one directly yourself if you want, but I can save you some time and effort by making a recommendation based on your own situation, and then I'll ask that company to send you a no-obligation quote/itinerary.
