Wild Dog Safaris' secret is their reverence for the national treasures that are Namibia's national parks and the intelligent, insightful appreciation of the species that inhabit them. For three days my group, a delegation from the Commonwealth, were treated to a safari in Etosha National Park led by George, who drove, interpreted, lectured on history, culture, politics, zoology and used...

I went on the 14 days Namibian Explorer trip in September. The reason why I chose Wild Dog Safaris were mainly the good reviews I saw online. (Since then I've learned a lot.) The trip actually splits into two separate trips for the North and the South region with a different group and different driver/assistant each time. I was the... More

We did the 3 day desert Safari. Had a fantastic time - this is certainly an experience not to miss. The guides were very knowledgeable and helpful. The food was good. As someone who hates camping, I found this part of the trip tolerable. Shower block was clean.

I went on Wild Dog Safaris 23 day tour (a combination of the 7 day north, 7 day south and 9 day delta and falls) and I had the most amazing time from start to finish! It was my first time visiting Namibia (and Botswana and Zimbabwe) and first time properly camping. Namibia is such a beautiful country and their... More

I opted for the 9 day tented safari through Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe and I was delighted with the experience. The guide/driver (Mannie) and co-driver/chef (Stevie) were experienced and knowledgeable and fitted in easily with the group. Animal sightings were first class and the quality of the accommodation superb. I particularly appreciated that each lodge/site had a swimming pool. However... More

George the Wild Dog safari guide was knowledgeable, customer service oriented, good driver and knew Etosha National Park well. We were fortunate to see three prides of lions, rhinos, cheetahs feeding on a recent kill, giraffes, a wide variety of kudu, élan, springbok etc .... The roads to Etosha are in good shape and the actual drive time was about... More

I read the excellent reviews of Wild Dog Safaris so I decided to book a self-drive with them. From the beginning, the planning/booking process didn't go smooth. Accommodation that suddenly changed without warning, incomplete answers to questions... During the trip, we had 2 wrong bookings. - With the first booking, we arrived at the wrong accommodation. Luckily, there was a... More

Can't say enough good things about the people who work at Wild Dog. I did the 6 Day Taste of Namibia trip (3 days Etosha with 1 guide, then 3 days Sossusvlei with another guide). Sossusvlei was so incredible. We spent the second day climbing Dune 45, then taking a 5km walk through the desert to Deadvlei. Our guide, George,... More

We booked last minute. Great and amazing experience! Back to the nature experience with self cocked food an simple tents. The staff at Wild Dog was incredibly helpful from the initial contact inquiring about the trip availability to requesting assistance for finding additional trips, local car rentals and further accommodations.
