I did a 15 day privately-guided tour of some of Namibia's highlights, including the Kalahari, Sossusvlei, Swakopmund, Damarland, Etosha National Park, and the Okonjima Reserve. The customer service from the onset was outstanding as Ashlee and her team at NTS helped customize the best tour. They were flexible, quickly responded to emails, and offered several options throughout. NTS was professional throughout, and I would not hesitate to use their services again. As a guide, Jurgens Strydom was fantastic. He was incredibly knowledgable on everything Namibia and its fauna and flora. More importantly, he was personable, welcoming, and always in high spirits; his passion for his country and guiding was clear every day. I strongly recommend him to anyone searching for the perfect guide to help explore this beautiful country. I would seek him out for any return visit to Namibia.

We travelled to Namibia in October 2020 having postponed twice because of COVID, it was without doubt one of the best experiences we have ever had. We spent 16 days travelling in a Toyota Fortuna 4 x 4 on a self-drive tour organised and fully booked with NTS. From the very beginning the coordination and interaction with Tessa and Wilmari was superb, even allowing for our constant needs to change dates, everything was flawless. We were even accompanied by Wilmari for our COVID test on day 7 which has since been stopped and is no longer required. Upon arrival in Windhoek we were met by Ronnie and transferred to the car hire company offices in the city where we had the itinerary explained to us, along with a GPS pre-loaded with all of the addresses we needed and a local mobile phone. In addition, the vehicles are all fitted with tracking devices so that the route can be monitored in the event of problems when out of phone coverage. The vehicle and all of the paperwork was fully sanitised, plus 2 spare tyres were also carried. Our only regret, which by no means reflects upon NTS was the lack of other tourists in Namibia as we found we were quite often the only guests at the different lodges that we stayed in and some interaction with other guests would have been nice. Namibia is a vast open country with beautiful scenery and wildlife, plus very friendly people. With a low population and few people outside of the major towns and cities it's significantly safer than Europe with regards to COVID and everywhere we stayed/visited health protocols were followed stringently.

We had developed an outline plan for a self drive tour of Namibia and ending up in Cape Town. Wilmari turned that outline into a great, well organised trip with expert advice on how to tweak our basic outline to take into account driving times and the amount to see and do in each location. She gave us a great variety of lodges from the classic african Rondeval camps to quirky Safari Tent camps that were themed along the lines of a Mad Max film set. We hired a 4WD Toyota Fortuner from NT & S as well. the vehicle was relatively new, well maintained and comfortable for four people, though when planning luggage, remember the extra spare wheel takes up space in the luggage area - I recommend no more than 1 x 70l soft duffel bag per perosn, along with a small 'carry on' back pack. Wilmari and the team's capabilities really showed when 3 days into our trip South Africa shut its borders as part of the global Covid-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak. rather than rush home we decided to replan our trip, staying in Namibia rather than continuing to Cape Town. Wilmari replanned everything and rescheduled and reconfirmed our accommodation on the new schedule within 2 days. Then, at very short notice Namibia closed its borders, with all inbound and outbound international flights suspended and the country put into lockdown with movement highly restricted. At short notice we had to, once again cancel the accommodation for the second half of our trip and quickly get back to Windhoek and into accommodation where we could be happy for an indeterminate period of a few weeks until we were able to get home. Once again Wilmari excelledand found us a great one bedroom apartment in a safe and pleasent area of windhoek, where we were quite happy to sit it out... we eventually ended up leaving on Lufthansa repatriation flights back to London via Germany its the quality of the team that really stands out in these difficult situations - Wilmari and the team really stood out and demonstrated that they can handle pretty much anything in their stride. Highly recomended

I joined a 3-day tour in February for visiting the Namib desert, starting from Swakopmund and finishing at Windhoek. The tour was locally organized by the agency Wild Dog Safaris. We were 14 people: 12 tourists from all over the world, the namibian tour guide Daniel and the chef Frans. We first visited the flamingos in Walvis bay, then we had a long way accross the desert, some stops at Naukluft Mountains in which Daniel explained the interesting geological history, before stopping at Solitaire to have ice cream (!), drinks and apple pie and taking some pictures in the cars cemetery. We arrived late afternoon in in Sesriem Campsite, very well organized: there is also a bar with cold beers and juices, and you can get safe tap water coming from underground, so you don't need to buy big plastic water bottle in Swakopmund! After relaxing by the swimming pool (!), we climbed a dune to enjoy the beautiful sunset in the desert. The following morning, early wake up to climb Dune 45 and see the stunning sunsrise! Later we visited Deadvley: a unique place in the world! I decided to climb Big Daddy and I saw the breathtaking views of all the area: highly recommended if you are fit enough! After lunch and relaxing around the campsite, when we visited the beautiful Sesriem Canyon. We saw the sunset together with many baboons, then we spent the night under the starry sky. The following morning, a log way to go back to Windhoek, stopping by a green area where we saw many orixes, giraffes and zebras. It was an unforgettable experience and I have so many beautiful memories about this adventure. The guide Daniel was super nice, the chef Frans very professional and prepared also different menu for vegetarians. About Namibia Tours & Safaris: Anja was very professional and provided quick replies for every question, the tour price was the same as organizing direcly with Wild Dog Safaris. The only note for improving the service: I asked for renting a sleeping bag, and in the tour plan there was written that it could be hired, but it was not possible because Namibia Tours & Safaris doesn't have a shop. So I had to take my sleeping bag from home, which takes a lot of space, and later in the Sesriem campsite Daniel asked if I needed a sleeping bag since they had spare! So Namibia Tours & Safaris should have asked Wild Dog Safaris to reserve a sleeping bag for me, this way I would have had more space in my luggage.

We had an amazing time in Namibia. Janine and her team at Namibia tours and safaris, arranged a wonderful trip. The organization was superb and despite the world corona virus outbreak we were met and looked after by caring and wonderful Namibians, and the quality of the lodges, the flights , let alone the commanding scenery was incredible. When the world once again becomes more normal, visit Namibia, and you won't be disappointed. You could not find better travel agents than Namibia tours, and Janine is a truly wonderful person who will make sure you trip goes smoothly, and you will have great memories for life!
