Namibia

NAMIBIA SAFARI TOURS

A utopia of vast terrain and brimming with wildlife, Namibia is a stunning destination for adventure and discovery. With a large Atlantic coast that crosses the Tropic of Capricorn, the country also has many national parks which are host to hundreds of species of animals, birds and plants.

The coastal city of Swakopmund has lots to offer in terms of adrenaline fuelled activities as its landscape is 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 holidays 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. The capital city of Windhoek gives you an opportunity to explore the streets, visit markets and get a taste for the contemporary culture of Namibia.

TOUR REVIEWS

Ant provided excellent service. He always responded as quickly as he could, attending to the questions I had for him. He was also very patient and pleasant. I depended on his knowledge and service to make the trip.
I liked the service and the tour guide & driver on the tour. They were professional and provided very good service. I thought 1-2 hotels on the trip were not quite 4-star. It also happened that this group of people was always late for schedule and our walk pace was too slow. It really needs the guide to make people on schedule and be punctual for the activity. Overall I think the time management of this tour needs improvement.

Excellent from the initial planning to every step along the way on the trip! Worry free in every way! Islam, Hussein and Mahmoud were the greatest! Please check out my review on Trip Advisor! FIve stars from this girl!
Excellent

Took care of every single detail from prior to our arrival in Cario until we we're dropped of at the airport a week later. Our hotels, tours, meals, and tour group we're all wonderful. Our tour guide was wonderful!
The price was great and the people wonderful!

This is our first travel through Encounters Travel and so far the arrangement is working very well. Our travel is not until April 2017 so I am more than hopeful all will continue to run as smoothly as it has so far.

My contact with Encounters representative was a pleasure, she answered my questions promptly, provided a quotation and changed it quickly when different flights were preferred. Both by e-mail and phone the response was very timely.
