A utopia of vast terrain and brimming with wildlife, our Namibia tours are perfect for adventure and discovery.
With a large Atlantic coast that crosses the Tropic of Capricorn, our Namibia tours include many national parks which are host to hundreds of species of animals, birds and plants - perfect for wildlife viewing.
The coastal city of Swakopmund has lots to offer in terms of adrenaline-fuelled activities as its landscape - wild and rugged. The dunes are ideal for sandboarding and quad biking, as well as the town being a great place to skydive and see dolphins.
The city itself is great for shopping and has delicious local cuisine to try. The dunes soon turn to mountains as you venture through to Spitzkoppe to see the mighty granite monoliths and strange rock formations.
Our Namibia tours also give you a chance to meet and integrate with the socially dynamic Himba tribe, well known for their semi-nomadic pastoral lifestyle.
The Himba population is estimated at about 50,000, and they're famous for their practice of applying otjize, a red paste made of ochre which symbolises the richness of the earth and life essence.
If you're a lover of wildlife, there are few better places than Etosha National Park to see a great variety of amazing creatures in their natural habitat.
Our Namibia tours take you by the waterholes and natural springs of the park, which are ideal to catch a glimpse of zebras, impala, wildebeest, cheetahs and elephants.

Encounters Travel did such a superb job in organizing this tour. I had never heard of them before going on the Maldives Magic tour, however now I will recommend them to friends/family and use them for my future planned trips.
Our tour is what made the trip that much more memorable. Rather than being plopped at a westernized resort, we were able to get a taste of how the locals live, eat and entertain themselves. We stayed in quaint guesthouses on the islands amongst the locals, ate authentic Maldivian cuisine (one day even with a Maldivian family who made us breakfast), and viewed a traditional dance/singing performance which was absolutely delightful. This was a trip of a lifetime that I will never forget.
I liked the fact we were met at the airport and helped thru customs and getting a visa and then upon leaving taken to where we needed to go. Its always tough to figure out where everything is in a foreign airport when you do not travel much
We had a wonderful time and great memories. We felt safe the whole time and would recommend this trip to anyone of any age as long as you can walk a lot. They are with you from arrival to departure and any problems that arose the guides would try their best to solve. They also showed remarkable patience for other people in other groups we saw that were acting like idiots.
When a single women in her 50's, traveling from the US to Egypt, stumbles across a website offering a tour, and then they make her feel totaling comfortable about every step of the process, you know you've hit a homerun!
My experience with Encounters was excellent from start to finish. The Tour Guide, Sheriff, was the most passionate, enthusiastic and professional guide I have ever had on a tour and his love for Egypt really made me enjoy my time so much more.
I was cautious about arriving in Egypt given the current circumstances about the country, but felt safer that I did living in London as soon as I arrived. All of the Encounters staff are very professional.
Amazing tour. Any issues we had were addressed in a timely fashion and the resolutions were satisfactory. My only complaint is the driver picking us up was late and none of the cell numbers worked when we tried to call and figure out what to do.

Namibia, officially the Republic of Namibia, is a country located in Southern Africa. The Atlantic Ocean is along the western border, and the country also borders with Angola and Zambia to the north, Botswana to the east and South Africa to the south and east.
In 1990, Namibia gained independence from South Africa, following the Namibian War of Independence. The capital and largest city in Namibia is Windhoek. Kenya is a member state of the United Nations, the African Union and the Commonwealth of Nations.
This country is the driest in Sub-Saharan Africa and was inhabited by the San, Damara and Nama groups. Namibia is a multi-party parliamentary democracy. The expansive Namib Desert means that Namibia is one of the least densely populated countries in the world. It also has the least rainfall of any country in sub-Saharan Africa.
The landscape of Namibia features five varied geographical areas, including the Namib, the Bushveld, the Kalahari Desert, and the Great Escarpment. The coastal desert of Namibia is one of the oldest deserts in the world. The sand dunes are created by the strong onshore winds and are the highest in the world.
As Namibia is the driest country in sub-Saharan Africa, the country depends on groundwater. There are more than 10,000 boreholes scattered across the country. Tourism is a major contributor to Namibia's GDP. The country is a popular destination in Africa and is renowned for its ecotourism, which encompasses Namibia's vast wildlife.
