Our flagship safari, Namibia Expedition, explores wildly varied regions, from the salt pans of Etosha, where wildlife gathers in huge numbers around waterholes, to the surreal sand dunes of Sossusvlei—the highest in the world. We give you special access to private concessions and wildlife reserves, a wonderful diversity of activities, accommodations as unique as Namibia itself, and logistics that make the most of your time in ‘the vast place’. Our Namibia Private Journey offers you the chance to experience this magnificent and memorable country in a very personal way—for most of the trip, you’ll have your own private experienced safari guide/driver who will enhance your enjoyment of this unique country and ensure you have an experience of a lifetime!

On our Giraffe Conservation and Safari, highlights include joining field biologists of the Giraffe Conservation Center for two special days of tracking and GPS tagging giraffes in the wild. And In the Realm of the Desert Lion, finds us in the wilds of Kaokoland, in the magnificent Kunene Reserve, where you’ll have the opportunity to see the work of Dr. Flip Stander, the world’s leading authority on the elusive desert lion.
