Namibia Trail Tour
Have you been in isolation for too long? Do you have a craving for wide open spaces, the crackling of a camp fire and need to get the family out of the house? Visit Namibia and let your soul breathe.
So you need to get out the house. This quarantine has taken its toll on your sanity. However, you don’t want to deal with any bookings. Why not let us do that for you? Join our max 10 vehicle 4×4 self drive guided trail of Namibia. As soon as the borders open why not get in your 4×4 and drive up to Windhoek?
We take 10 vehicles max on a self drive trail through Namibia. We meet at the bar garden at Arebbusch Travel Lodge in Windhoek and enjoy a drink while you have your briefing. Your trail leader will issue you with a 2 way radio for the duration of the drive.
We will book the camp sites and braai your meals. Chad, your guide, has 25 years experience in tourism and has actually walked the entire length of the Namib desert. We can organise emergency air ambulance insurance for the duration of your trail, and we cater to all dietary requirements.
