A maximum of 6 to 8 people are on my safaris for a comfortable traveling & photography experience.
Participants enjoy activities lead by experienced guides in our own game drive vehicle at each park.
We stay at accommodations best situated to partake in various activities focused on the unique wildlife and
scenery at these locations.

To reserve your place a non-refundable deposit is required usually 8 - 10 months before the trip.
Any booking made after then cannot be guaranteed as these lodges are holding the bookings provisionally and if other parties request the same dates we must either confirm or release the rooms.
The balance will be due by six months before departure.
Please note: If the lodges get requests from other parties wanting to confirm the dates they are holding
for our group, we may need to pay our deposits earlier to secure our booking.

IMMUNIZATION: Please note that a yellow fever certificate is now required to enter South Africa if coming from Zambia.
Anti-malarial medications are very highly recommended for travel throughout these areas.
PASSPORT: It is your responsibility to ensure you have a current passport, valid for six months after your return home. Please ensure it has at least three blank pages in it for stamps/visas. If it does not, you are likely to be denied access into the country.
TRAVEL INSURANCE: It is required that all participants have their own insurance for cancellation, medical expenses, baggage loss and medical evacuation. Full trip cancellation insurance is not required, but highly recommended.
Currency & Credit Cards: The unit of currency in Namibia is the Namibia Dollar, which is tied to the South African RAND. in major towns accept valid international credit cards. MasterCard and Visa are accepted for payment. It must be noted that many shops and retail outlets especially in the rural areas do not accept credit cards and it is essential to have a cash in these areas. Hard currency such as US dollars, Euro, British pounds and South African Rand can be used.
