Advice From Previous Travellers of Namibia Safaris
The Namibia safaris reviews let you find those nuggets of invaluable advice that could make a huge difference in the success of your dream holiday. Take a look at the reviews below and get advice, tips, recommendations right from the "horses mouth".
Etosha National Park
The Etosha (satellite map and distance table) National Park is rated as one of the worlds greatest wildlife-viewing venues.
It's one of the few places in Africa where you can even watch wildlife at night from the camp at one of the floodlit waterholes. Your chances of seeing most of the animals here are very good because there are only a few waterholes in Etosha for them to choose from.
This park is rated as one of the top four Namibia tours destinations.
Request full trip report » One of the most amazing trip reports about Etosha that I have ever seen. All the action took place at the floodlit waterholes at night including eight black rhino turning up for a drink at the same time and a successful lion ambush of a gazelle...
Request full trip report » Richard spent time at all the camps in Etosha and especially at the floodlit waterhole on this amazing photographic safari. One of the highlights included a cheetah hunt with this fantastic feline accelerating to top speed in a matter of seconds but still failing to catch a zebra...
Request full trip report » Niamh and Cathal were impressed with Chameleon safaris and they recommend them for a Namibia safaris trip in particular for the fact that they only allow a maximum of eight people on the tour so you get all the benefits of being in a small group.
The guides were Martin and Joe and the vehicle was a modified Land Cruiser which allowed them to get close to a lioness with six cubs trailing behind her, elephant and white rhino amongst others...
The Namib desert is one of the oldest and driest deserts in the world. The star attractions of the Namib are Sesriem and Sossusvlei.
Sossusvlei is a pan lying amid sand dunes which reach up to 200m above the valley floor. Here you can spot gemsbok, ostrich and a wide variety of bird life if the pan contains water, which it does on an intermittent basis after good rains.
The desert has its own characteristic beauty which can't be found anywhere else in the world as it's unique to this area.
Skeleton Coast National Park
Request full trip report » One of the star attractions of the Skeleton coast is the Cape fur seals who have made a permanent home at Cape Cross. The colony numbers hover around 100 000 with the big bulls only resident during the breeding season which kicks off in October every year.
Patricia could smell the presence of the colony on her Namibia safaris trip minutes before she saw them and the noise of so many seals was remarkable. She was also amazed by the fact that the mothers could recognise their own babies in the chaos...
Waterberg Plateau Park
Request full trip report » The Waterberg Plateau is so large that it dominates the landscape and Jayne felt that the accommodation was too close to the plateau which made it difficult to enjoy the view.
The pool was fantastic but they didn't go on any of the walking trails because of the heat and also passed up the opportunity of going on a game drive to possibly see black rhino because they had already seen a lot of wildlife in other areas of their Namibia safaris holiday...
Request full trip report » The baboons are very inquisitive residents here as became evident in the early morning when the whole troop climbed onto the roof of the bungalow making a huge noise in the process.
The hikes didn't deliver much wildlife apart from some antelope and some wonderful birdlife but the views from the summit were really worthwhile...
