Description of Classic Namibia tailor made tour
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetHaving travelled extensively ourselves and witnessed first-hand how tourism can have either positive or negative effects on local communities, we vowed to always strive to leave a positive mark on all places we visit and send clients. Our clients’ requirements are of primary importance to us at all times, as we know that our growth and success depend on their continued support.
While we are there: We will visit protected areas, such as the Etosha National Park, Namib Desert, Sossusvlei. While in these protected areas, we will ensure that our clients are given the correct guidance to minimise impact on the environment and respect the natural wonders of the area. Typically these areas also ask for a fee to appreciate the protected area. These fees go to conservation and infrastructure efforts directly supporting these protected areas.
On Safari local guides will ensure that wildlife is viewed both safely and responsibly whilst educating visitors on the environmental issues of the issue.
As a company: We endeavour to operate as a paperless company as far as possible, and recycle wherever facilities are available. We use toxic-free fair trade products whenever we can.
While traveling: Many of the resorts and operators we work with offer our clients free drinking water refills to minimise wastage of plastic bottles through out the trips. We also ask clients if they want items laundered before simply washing towels and linens unnecessarily, to conserve water. While in remote areas, we carry rubbish with us and ensure we do not disturb anything in the natural environment.
PeopleThis tour has been designed to both operate in a way that minimises our impact on the environment that we visit and to maximise the benefit that our clients can have on the host community. We strive to follow responsible guidelines, as with all trips. Guests will be briefed on responsible tourism at the start of the trip, and encouraged to be mindful of the environment and respectful of local people and culture.
While we are there: We encourage our clients to have a truly immersive experience while in Windhoek. It is also important that they support the livelihood of the local community. We will visit protected areas, such as the Etosha National Park, Namib Desert, Sossusvlei. All these protected areas and reserves use guides who are local to the area and have been trained, bettering their communities. These guides typically communicate all the do’s and don’ts while visiting these protected areas.
In Swakopmund, we visit local markets and partner with local activity providers to provide options such as sand boarding.
While in Namibia, our clients will be immersed in the natural wild African beauty by local guides. Game drives will show the untamed wild as they interact with Africa’s largest elephants, endangered rhinos, leopards, lions and giraffes. The Namib Desert will also provide the most peaceful experience and our clients will explore and be educated about unique parts of the desert, the flora the fauna and so much more.
Where we stay: As a boutique travel company we recommend unique and authentic travel experiences. We prefer to use local suppliers who recommend accommodation that will add to the uniqueness and sense of adventure of the trip and we therefore encourage our clients to stay in privately owned accommodation where possible to support the local community. Where the hotel owners source staff, produce, products and other services from within the local community. This gives the local people an opportunity to gain financially from the increase in tourism in the area.
Typically with all our tailor-made trips to destinations we enjoy offering new routes and encourage travel to areas that are not on the main tourist trails and further support communities.
