With very little notice, Chameleon Holidays managed to organize for me a perfect 11-day self-drive trip in Namibia with a personalized itinerary. Liz was extremely kind, helpful and thorough, she handled every booking and provided me with any information I might need. Only thing I had to do was get in my rental 4x4, start driving and enjoy the ride.
Namibia is an incredibly beautiful country, full of breathtaking sights and warm, friendly people. Even just driving for hours across long stretches of barren landscape on the Skeleton Coast is an almost otherworldly experience.
I will be back for sure: eleven days is not nearly enough to experience properly everything this awe-inspiring country has to offer.

Our family just returned from a superb self-drive holiday in Namibia. Chameleon Holidays was recommended to us by friends and did not disappoint! Through the turbulences of organizing this trip during the pandemic (e.g. various changes of travelling dates, airline, and covid restrictions), Jules patiently provided guidance and support.
We were so happy to finally arrive in Windhoek and get to meet her. Everything she had organized with the help of the Chameleon team went very smoothly, her advice was great and we thoroughly enjoyed every moment of this beautiful country: its wildlife, landscape, and welcoming inhabitants. Let's hope we can go back to discover more of Namibia, and why not visit neighbouring countries. Our kids are already talking about it...
We would recommend Chameleon Holidays to any of our friends!

Hi Anne-Fleur - glad you are home safely and have some wonderful memories of Namibia - it is a special destination and travelling in covid times has made it a little challenging but it's worth it in the end. Look forward to hearing from you again soon and yes, why not neighbouring countries! :-)

2020 has been anything but a smooth year so far but our recent trip to Namibia was certainly nothing short of an experience and adventure of a lifetime in this beautiful and diverse country. After few cancellations and re-arranging our plans due to various COVID related challenges, we connected with Julie from Chameleon and she arranged the most amazing self drive trip across the country. Service was bespoke, we chatted few times and she quickly understood what are the type of things we will enjoy and suggested itinerary and accommodation that was absolutely superb. Communication was extremely quick and many last minute changes were arranged in no time. Chameleon provided us with all necessary documentation to support us getting through the constantly changing requirements for entering the country, had had a detailed briefing pack waiting for us on our arrival with maps, information and local mobile SIM card and were just a whatsapp message away if we needed anything before, during and after our trip. Thank you Julie and Chameleon for a wonderful trip and we are already planning the next one!

We were passed onto Jules and her team back in late 2020 when the world fell apart due to Covid and our original tour operator went bankrupt. Jules picked up our itinerary and went about tweaking things here and there to make the most of our time in Namibia.
We then had nearly 2 years of chopping and changing due to the ups and downs of the pandemic, but we got there in the end and finally made it in May 2022. Jules was also incredibly empathetic when we asked her to make a few changes again due our post-Covid issues and the fact we simply couldn't drive the distances we had originally planned; I think her file on us was about 2 inches thick by the time we got to Windhoek!
We had a wide variety of locations and accommodation, ranging from tented camps to luxury lodges. The self drive car hire was faultless too.
I would have no hesitation to recommend Jules and her team to anyone looking for their first foray into self drive in this wonderful country

We did a fantastic 7 day tour of the highlights of Namibia with Chameleon. From the initial enquiry onwards, I knew we were dealing with experts and professionals. The responsiveness, helpfulness and flexibility of the Manager Jules were first class throughout. The price was also extremely competitive.

We had an issue at the start as our luggage had been delayed in Jo'burg. Jules handled this situation fantastically, communicating with the airline and personally collecting the bags when they finally arrived at the airport and sending them on to us by courier, to be waiting for us at our hotel in Swakopmund.

The tour itself was one of the best we have had. The guide, Beanie, worked very hard to ensure we were comfortable, gave us excellent recommendations and flexible options, and displayed an incredible knowledge of the country and its wildlife.

Thank you to Jules and Beanie. It was a pleasure dealing with you and we wish you all the best.

Our family had 10 wonderful days in Namibia - my husband and I had wanted to visit Namibia for many years and are so glad we waited until our sons were old enough to not only enjoy the experience but have beautiful memories of it !

Chameleon Holidays Team did a superb job of asking lots of questions which ensured they tailored our holiday to our specific needs which made the entire experience Excellent.

Our driver/guide was amazing, very friendly, knowledgeable with a great sense of humour.

There are too many different and wonderful experiences and each one being so unique we cannot identify any one is being the best. They ALL were the best !

After around 15 months of not traveling due to Covid restrictions, I chose Namibia as my first trip after the lockdowns. If you are coming to Namibia, I'd strongly recommend Chameleon Holidays and Travel + their adjoining hostel to stay in. I took a 8 night / 9 day camping / accommodated safari which covered most of Namibia's highlights - Etosha, Damarland (to see himba tribe), Swakopmond, Sossusvlei, Quiver Tree Forest, Kolmanstop, Fish River Canyon, etc. All in all the tour was superb and went without a single snag. One of Chameleon's best asset along with their fascinating and well planned trips are their staff. Queendeline, whom I corresponded with beforehand was extremely welcomed and help qualm any reservations I had about travelling safety during Covid times, and my guide Gideon was absolutely brilliant, doing everything he could to make the tour comfortable and memorable. I would recommend Chameleon without reservation...

We had a wonderful holiday in Namibia due, in no small part, to the efforts of Jules and her team. Our itinerary was designed in response to what we wanted and I appreciated the endless patience as we considered our options and asked many Qs. The welcome when we arrived and the detailed pack of information made moving around the country feel easy and manageable. I also really appreciated Jules support in dealing with one issue which arose. I thoroughly recommend Chameleon Travel if you want help in planning a visit to this beautiful country.

I took a 3-week holiday in April travelling through Namibia and Botswana (and Zimbabwe for Vic Falls only). It was organised by Chameleon (many thanks to Queendeline for putting the itineraries together for me). It was a combination of two trips - one camping, and another accommodated.
I had a fantastic time on both trips, and everything went as planned, many times exceeding my expectations. Being able to visit Africa again after covid felt really good.
Needless to say, Chameleon team was second to none (I also travelled with them three years ago). I would recommend this agency to everyone.

Just back from a 10 days trip in Namibia, Chameleon delt with organization and it was awesome ! After arriving at the airport, we met at the agency in downtown Windhoeck and had again a review of our trip to come, very securising. Chameleon has an emergency number so you can reach them at any moment. They are also providing a Namibian SIM card in order to be connected while your are in the country. I highly recommand this Chameleon to organize your trip in wonderful Namibia !
