Our guide was Lawrence. This gentleman is exceptionally knowledgeable and well informed about his own country. A self drive tour would have meant we would have missed so much. Lawrence did an excellent job, showing flexibility when conditions changed, and kept a close eye on any stragglers when we were walking in isolated areas.The crew, who set up the camps, and prepared the meals were very efficient and part of the experience. The meals were excellent, and considering the desert conditions, just amazing.

Our tour operators Expert Africa used Karibu safari for our 12 day holiday in Namibia and we are very pleased they did. Our guide David made the tour into the trip of a lifetime. He was friendly, knowledgeable, a capable driver on challenging roads, an excellent spotter of elusive wildlife and he made sure we all experienced the treasures Namibia has to offer: Etosha, Okaukuejo, Damaraland, Swakopmund, Sossusvlei. We stayed in comfortable lodges and hotels and also spent 4 nights in the Karibu camps - these were the highlights. Remotely situated in spectacular scenery, comfortable beds and a bucket shower, we enjoyed superb meals under the Southern Hemisphere stars.

A wonderful way to see the variety of regions and diversity of culture, all the best highlights within a 12 day tour including 7 nights in comfortable to luxury lodges and 4 nights in luxury mobile tents with a full service staff of 5 for 7 of us. From Etosha park to Damaraland and Himba villagers, and on to the Skeleton coast and Namib desert, we saw a majestic lion walking by our viewing truck and a black rhino at the floodlit watering hole, plus many others on the wish list, even a 3 meter black mamba snake crossing the road! Our guide David went above and beyond the highest level to provide us whatever we needed, always professional and very knowledgeable about history, geography, and culture. He made our trip excellent and memorable by making sure we experienced all we desired as well as many surprises, and his attention to detail never faltered. I feel so lucky and grateful to have had this tour with this guide. I highly recommended this tour!

We just returned from the journey of Southern Africa. The whole experience was stunning! We 2 traveled with another friend's couple. 4 people in the land cruiser were quite comfortable. We booked through Cardboard Box, who chose Karibu as our touring company. The guide Tickey was the best guide I ever encountered. I have traveled a lot, so far 35 countries. I never met any guide was combined with abundant knowledge, professionalism, efficient, helping & caring. He can name most of the birds we saw. He had a bird encyclopedia with him, which shows extensive wear, meaning he really studies it. He heard one of my friend's birthday and secretly organized a birthday celebration for him. It makes him almost tearing. He always offer to help, tried his best to fulfill our needs, never complain, and offered so many useful advice. Without him, the trip might be half of the fun. The safari car's condition is alright, I'd say 80/100. But Tickey took good care of it, cleaning inside out every chance he got. Air conditioning was not working very well for the first day. But later of the trip, it worked, maybe too good, had to turn off for a bit. There always be cold beer, coke, water from the powered cooler. Unfortunately, we do not drink the ice cold drinks, only room temperature water. It's a 14 days customized tour. We traveled Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe & Zambia. Lot of fun, lots of natural wonder & wild animals. Also amazing accomadations, but I believed that part was arranged by Cardboard Box. All in all, it's a wonderful trip. And Karibu is a wonderful tour company. Highly recommend to you if you want to adventure Africa with comfort.

In April 2018 my husband and I (66 and 70) joined 5 other people on the Itenga mobile safari by Karibu starting in Windhoek and ending in Vic Falls. The charming and highly competent guide Josia took us through an astonishing variety of landscapes and people and found a wonderful variety of animals and birds at Etosha and Mahongo game reserves. (Etosha is more famous, but Mahongo, on the Kavanga River, was more scenic and delivered in one drive what we saw in several drives in Etosha). There were no mechanical issues with the vehicle. We were in a non-air conditioned truck that would have seated 17 at full capacity so was spacious for the 7 of us. It was certainly dusty and you have to live through the bumpy roads to really understand how difficult it is to travel on them. But this is a very good itinerary at an excellent price. Ours was the first trip of a revised itinerary that includes Unesco World heritage site rock paintings at Twifilfontain. You also get dunes, several living villages run by different ethnic groups, game reserves, eco-camps (the swimming pool is a cage in the river that protects you from crocs and hippos), Vic Falls and a variety of Namibia's landscapes. The driving is hard work but when you look at your photos after, you can't believe you did and saw all the things pictured. I should also mention that my husband developed an illness just before the trip started and Karibu made several adjustments at no extra charge (larger tent, more light) that made it possible for us to take the trip. If you like adventure and are reasonably hardy, this trip is for you.
