Budget camping tours general information
Group sizes are
small with a maximum of 8 or 10 people*.
These trips are an inexpensive option to see the highlights of Namibia but still with comfort. Operator provides good quality equipment, three meals a day with an enjoyable evening supper around the campfire.
The tents are dome type which are easy to assemble, your mattresses are approximately 5 cm thick and everyone has a camp chair.
Group participation is limited to putting your own tent up and down, helping with the preparation of dinner, washing up and the loading of the vehicle. Your guide is there to assist you at all times.
All safaris will be conducted in English.
Clients are limited to one soft bag per person with a maximum weight of 15kg. This does not include camera equipment. Dust can be a problem for cameras, zip camera bags are a good idea.
Clothing and footwear recommendations:
t-shirts and long-sleeved shirt; shorts / skirts; long trousers / slacks; tracksuit; underwear and socks; swimming costume; comfortable walking shoes; soft hat; good quality sunglasses; during winter, (May to August) a warm jacket or mid layer (fleece or wool) - for cool nights and early morning game drives. Camera, film & binoculars; personal toiletries; torch; visas (if required); basic medical kit to include suntan lotion, insect repellent, malaria tablets; water-bottle. During the summer months, (November to April) we would expect rain so a lightweight waterproof jacket is a good idea.
We suggest a sleeping bag range of "3-4 season". These can be supplied by prior arrangement for a small fee.
Please arrange your own travel insurance for loss of luggage / curtailment of holiday due to sickness etc.
Namibia's dry climate is very healthy! There are very few of the health problems in Namibia that are experienced elsewhere in Africa. Always consult your own doctor for malaria prophylactics! There is no risk in the south of Namibia, low risk around Waterberg and high risk in the northern regions.
Tap water throughout the areas you will visit is clean to drink. This applies to all campsites, hotels and restaurants. Drinking water is always available from the vehicle.
Luggage: preferably in soft bags.
Operator employs full-time guides who are all registered with NATH (Namibian Academy for Tourism and Hospitality) and trained to a high standard.
