Southern Africa Tours

I am visiting a friend in Cape Town for a couple of weeks in late January and would like to take a 2 or 3 weeks tour of other parts of Southern Africa, particular Namibia. I am not keen on basic camping every night (though a few nights would be ok) other than that I have no particular requirements. Any advice or recommendations would be most welcome

Would you be travelling on your own?

If you are looking for a great way to see the country in comfort and get to the key areas, you may want to consider joining a flying schedule or perhaps even an overland schedule. Below are links to some options that work really well from Wilderness Safaris.

Thanks Chris for your message. I can see that you are based in wonderful San Diego (I lived there for 4 years in the 70's and still have some great friends there). I guess that you are catering for a US clientele so your prices are a fair bit higher than I can afford. I am looking for comfort in that I don't want to camp every night but dont mind a couple of nights camping and some basic lodges with beds and showers.

Regards

Hi Travellinglady9

I am in San Diego and yes, this is a great city. I moved here from Namibia about 8 years ago and I think I picked one of the best cities in America, though I do miss Namibia every day:(

I am only hoping to advise you and pretty sure TA rules do not allow me to discuss or solicit for my business, I add my name at the bottom mainly to show my sincerity.

I do however want to respond and say that US Based Tour Operators have rates that are competitive anywhere in the world.

Good luck and if you are looking for a HUGELY knowledgeable Namibia expert based in the UK (which is where I think you are from) then I really cannot recommend anyone better then my friend Chris McIntyre at Expert Africa.

Safe Travels!
