Hikers say "You havenít really been where you havenít been on your own two feet"- and they are right, but Namibia is too vast and too hot to be explored on foot. With our camels and Camel Camp owners offer a perfect alternative. You can experience our country and its world famous desert on a special holiday. Hosts offer tours of one day or more, starting from Camel Camp and guided by Lumpi and his crew. It doesnít matter for how many days you join the caravan - everything is brought along: food and drink, water and firewood, and tents, enough for several people for several days. You may wonder how you can carry guests and their luggage; donít worry - the camels carry everything and you will be comfortable.
All tours start and end at Camel Camp. Camel Camp is Lumpi's creation. It has been designed to be in harmony with the landscape while providing all the facilities you will need. There are little sleeping huts with comfortable beds and bedding. The ablution block has separate ladies' and gents' toilets and showers with hot and cold running water.
You will have an unforgettable experience riding or walking alongside Lumpi's reliable camels in the vast unspoilt landscape. Lumpi is looking forward to welcoming you for a very special tour.
