Hello Colleen; we only sell scheduled overland truck safaris. We do have a trip to Etosha - however for Waterberg; you can either do this on your own or contact a local operator in Windhoek for more assistance. I have emailed you some more information. Cheers!

Hello; we are 2 pensioners who would like to visit Etosha and Waterberg. We require separate accommodation but would prefer budget price. I am an ex Namibian and now want to show my friend the beautiful country. We will also require accommodation in Windhoek for some days pre and post our trip up north. I look forward to your ideas and prices. Yours sincerely Colleen Deane tel 0826433914

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!

I loved every millisecond of the entire trip... Guess what I did in Swakopmund? I skydived out of a plane - woohoo was that AWESOME :-)
