What to Expect from a Namibia Camping Safari
Namibia is one of Africa’s most breathtaking countries, allowing people to escape from the daily grind and immerse themselves in a brand new culture, the wild outdoors, as well as spending some time seeing animals in their natural habitat. In a country where seven languages are spoken, you’re bound to experience a cultural immersion like never before, and if you’re looking to test the waters for a full-on safari experience, a 10 day camping safari might just be the way to go. Let’s explore what you could expect from such a trip, and why Namibia is the perfect destination for this.
More About Namibia
Many international tourists may not have heard of Namibia, a beautiful country located in the southwest of Africa. It is primarily known for the Namib desert, which borders the coast of the Atlantic ocean. To say that the country boasts diverse wildlife is the understatement of the year, and you only need to hear about its prominent cheetah population to know that it is “the place to be” if you’re out for an African safari adventure. If you’re looking to spot rhinos and giraffes, Etosha National Park is a must-see. Alternatively, the reserve is known for its massive salt pan, which can be seen from space, effectively making Namibia one of the top tourist destinations in Africa in the process.

Camping in Brand New Locations
A 10 day camping safari in namibia includes a lot of camping of course, in the form of 2 man dome tents, mattresses and sleeping bags. The concept of sleeping under the stars is something that has become foreign to people from all over the world, including Africa. A breakaway where you’re “roughing it” (so to speak) in nature will not only give you the chance to experience something unique, but ultimately provide you with the opportunity to reconnect with nature and yourself, and to journey inwards in reflection, gathering perspective in the process. Many people leave camping safari’s with a sense of calamity and understanding, realising just how small we are in the greater scope of things, and also remembering that we are part of a gigantic ecosystem, and exactly where we need to be.
Meals, Fees and More
If it sounds too good to be true, we can assure you that it isn’t. An experience like this also comes with all meals and park fees included, trekking between desert landscape from the Kalahari Desert, all the way through the Fish River Canyon and the Namib Desert. You’ll explore dunes and wide open desert spaces, as you depart from Johannesburg and end the trip in Windhoek.
e Namibia Camping Safari focuses on the desert landscapes from the Kalahari Desert through the Fish River Canyon and the Namib Desert where we travel through endless desert gravel plains, rolling Dunes and massive mountain ranges through the Namib desert and the Skeleton coast giving the sense of wide open desert spaces. If you’re a relatively small group of people (up to seven), you are guaranteed a personalised African safari, and it’s worth talking about your tour operator about your wants and needs, to iron everything out before you depart. Once you get there it’s time to give over, enjoy the experience, and embrace the moment fully.
