Namibia's humid and wet summer season occurs from December to February with daily temperatures around 86ºF. The dry season is from June to October.

Do I need a visa to enter Namibia?

Yes, however, citizens of the USA do not need to obtain a Namibian visa in advance and may obtain one on arrival.

Is this trip a good choice for solo travelers?

Yes. We have chosen these particular camps for solo travelers, as they have relatively low single supplements and they encourage communal dining. Joining a small group trip is an excellent way to explore the country by road as a solo traveler.

Do I need vaccinations or malaria tablets?

We always recommend you speak to your doctor or a health professional about vaccinations and malaria tablets well in advance of your safari. Currently, certain areas of Namibia are affected by malaria.

Can I book pre and/or post safari accommodation?

Yes, please contact your Adventure Coordinator who will be able to book those for you.

When is the best time to visit Namibia?

Namibia receives a fraction of the rain experienced by countries further east. Between December and March, days can be humid and rain may follow often in localized, afternoon thunderstorms. Wildlife viewing is best in the Dry season from June to October.

Are tour dates flexible?

Yes, please contact us if you are not able to travel on the dates listed. Most safaris can be arranged on alternative dates for a minimum of one traveler as long as camps/lodges are available.

Does this trip contribute to any local conservation efforts?

Yes! Each group visits the Cheetah Conservation Fund to learn about projects developed to support cheetah populations and ecosystem.
