We offer both accommodated and camping budget tours in Namibia. Trips can be done in Namibia alone or included in one of our multi country African overland tours.

This massive natural structure is the 2nd largest canyon in the world, spanning over 160 kilometres. It can also reach up to 27 kilometres wide and 550 meters deep. Staying here under the stars on one of our Namibia tours is truly a breath taking experience.

Further North you will come across the Namib desert, one of the world’s oldest deserts with some of the largest dunes you will ever see. Adventure activities like sandboarding and quad biking are popular on the dunes from the coastal town of Swakopmund.
