What a fantastic trip! We went to Namibia because we wanted to see the isolation and raw nature of the Skeleton Coast. Karibu Safaris delivered everything we had hoped for in the trip and more. It was a super fun adventure for us and lots of hard work for them. We trusted their capabilities at all times and they proved... More

Just had one of the best holidays ever. 12 day Essence of Namibia 18th to 29th Sept. 2014 Excellent tour and very knowledgable guide. Camp food excellent. 9 friends travelling together 8 of whom are aged over 60! Can highly recommend this company for great organisation and very helpful and friendly staff. I'll definitely be travelling with them again

We returned from this fabulous trip a couple of weeks ago. It was with some trepidation that we faced the prospect of a largely camping trip but we needn't have worried - it was a fantastic experience! We certainly had the advantages of being in a very small group (just 2 couples) and therefore having so much individual attention, so... More

My wife and I traveled with Karibu on their Essence of Namibia tour in August 2011. We were really lucky in that there was a total of 12 on the tour but 8 were non-English speaking and needed an interpreter. This meant that Karibu thoughtfully split us into 2 vehicles, giving us much more space and viewing opportunities for all... More

Just back from a safari with Karibu Safari I went on their 16 day Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe trip the majority of the trip is in Namibia. Namibia is a fascinating country with spectacular scenery and wildlife. The orange sand dunes around Sossusvlie at sunrise and sunset are surreal with their sharp outline and constantly changing colors – great for... More

We returned home on Saturday and had the remainder of the weekend to reflect on the marvellous trip we had in Namibia, arranged through Wild About Africa. All the arrangements worked faultlessly, and South African Airways were courteous, efficient and punctual. The tip with Karibu Safaris was fantastic with a brilliant guide, who was hugely informative, supportive, with a brilliant... More

I recently went on Karibu's Classic Safari through Namibia. I thought Etosha and the animals there would be the highlight of the trip, but I was wrong. Karibu's carefully planned itinerary showed me so much more of this amazing country, and allowed me to experience a variety of adventures from watching the silent majesty of elephants, to the sheer joy...

Did the "Classic Namibia Safari", a 12 day 8 person safari with Karibu, Namibia this past Oct. Can't say enough good things about this company and the trip provided. From the wonderful, knowledgeable guide staff, the superb food and the delightful comfortable camping experience it all was excellent. Karibu managed to provide pampered camping while still letting us really experience... More
