Hi Jewel; the hottest months in Namibia are from November to February (average temperatures; 20-36 degree celsius)- however I have personally experienced 50 degree celsius plus in January in Sossusvlei! Happy trails.

Hi Alison; Our small group tours can have anything between 10 to 16 passengers depending on the trip. Accommodation will depend on which trip you decide to partake in. If it is an accommodated style trip you will be staying in budget style lodges; Hostels; Chalets and/or permanent tents. If you choose to do a camping style trip; then you will be issued with a dome shaped tent which is shared with another passenger. I have emailed you some information about a really awesome Botswana trip we have! Cheers:)

How large are your "small tours"? Looking for no more than 8-10 in a group for safari in Botswana. Also; what types of facilities are at your camps? What types of sleeping accommodations?

Ons gaan Namibie in Julie besoek; ons is al opgewonde. Ons toer so aan die onderkant deur; sou graag meer wou kamp; maar nou ja mens kan nie altyd alles kry wat jy wil he nie.

Hi GB; Overland travel is a great way to travel with like minded people and a great way to explore Namibia. We have weekly departures on tours travelling from Cape Town to Windhoek and Swakopmund. Accommodation in Swakopmund can vary from Backpackers to hotel and lodge accommodation. For long term stays I suggest contacting an estate agency or tourism office in Swakopmund. Alternatively I will be more that willing to book accommodation for you for after your tour.Cheers

I am a single mature 50 lady; born in Namibia; currently living in Cape Town. I want to visit my home town either with a private car with people or whatever and travel through Namibia. I might even want to stay there in future and need a room at first (not expenseive) in Swakop to start with. Can you help?
- Alissa11 Oct 2010
The tour through Namibia was stunning! We saw lots of animals!

Hi Margaret; The 5 day Garden Route Safari is a fantastic trip and I am sure you will love it. What I recommend is you head off to Hermanus a day or 2 earlier so you can spend as much time as you like watching the whales (a couple of hours is included in the usual trip) and then we can arrange the tour collects you from Hermanus on the way through. The optional activities you can choose as you go and book and pay on the spot. We have space in November for you and the minimum group size is 2. I will email you the full details. Happy trails!
- margaret03 Sep 2010
I have always dreamed of seeing whales in Hermanus. Travelling alone as a woman and not wanting to rent a car: - would the 5 day garden route tour be a good alternative? - How long time is spent whalewatching in Hermanus? - Would it be possible to stay a day extra in Hermanus and continue the tour the next day as I see the tour goes daily? -What do you mean by optional alternatives during this tour? Does this mean i can choose which activities I want to include? - Is the 5 day garden route tour very fully booked the last 10 days of November? - How many participants is minimum? Thanks for your reply! Margaret Stockholm Sweden

How can you claim Namibia is doing more in Ecotourism? They allow 80;000 seals to be slaughtered every year? Eco Tourism would be stopping the hunt and offering more tours of the seals.

Hi Katherine; Lots to choose from. We will ring Grahams cell phone as soon as it is a reasonable hour over there! Chat soon!

We are stranded in Cape Town from 20th - 29th April due to UK airports closed. There is just me or possibly my brother. We are interested in any tours operating within this time zone to any of the surrounding countries; Namibia/Botswana/Vic Fall...etc. Do you have any tours that we could get onto?
- Tania - OverlandingAfrica.com05 Oct 2009
Personally, I like the winter months (May-Sept) when its a bit cooler during the day. But keep in mind that the temperature can be below freezing in the desert at night. This is also prime game viewing time in Namibia.

When is the best time of year to travel to Namibia?
- Tania - OverlandingAfrica.com25 Aug 2009
Hi Jag Van, All countries need a visa in advance for Angola. Contact your closest Angolan embassy for info. It is approx 435 kms from Namutoni to Ruacana and you should be able to do it within a day depending on road conditions. The falls should be fairly full during August as July is a rainy month in Southern Africa. Good luck!
- Jag Van25 Aug 2009
Can I enter Angola without a visa at Ruacana falls (US citizen). How much time to drive from eastern side of Etosha national park and by end of August, would the falls be full or barren? Thanks.

The highlight of my trip had to be Gweru in Zimbabwe, it was my idea of paradise. So much to do there with the animals and the location of it was just beautiful!

The trip was great! A very relaxed ride in a mokoro, followed by camping in the Okavango Delta and watching the animals on the islands was awesome!
— Michael & Silke from Germany
I loved every millisecond of the entire trip... Guess what I did in Swakopmund? I skydived out of a plane - woohoo was that AWESOME :-)
