Magical Namibia

Written on: November 16, 2015   |   I visited in October 2015 My wife and I recently went to Namibia on a guided, nature-oriented road-trip/safari. I had high expectations, but I wasn’t prepared to be overwhelmed by the astonishing beauty and variety of Namibia’s myriad landscapes and wildlife. Nick Buys, of Nature Travel Namibia, was our guide – you would be hard-pressed to find a more passionate ambassador for Namibia, its people and its wildlife than Nick. Thanks to Nick’s expert eyes and ears we were able to see 350 species of birds and over 50 species of mammals. We visited the Spreetshoogte Pass in the interior highlands, the Namib Desert, the charming seaside towns of Walvis Bay and Swakopmund, the Skeleton Coast, the Erongo Mountains, the utterly fantastic Etosha National Park with its wonderful waterholes, and the mighty Okavango and Zambezi rivers in the Caprivi region.

I cannot emphasize enough how magical and captivating Namibia is, and if you’re looking to do a guided trip there, Nick Buys gets our enthusiastic recommendation.

We traveled in Namibia, Botswana and Zambia on a birding safari. Everything was excellent - the birding, game drives, lodges. Our guide Nick is a real pro. He is organized and knows this area well. Everything was well planned and executed. We had tons of birds and animals, very nice lodges, great travel through the area and coffee as required. read more

NTN are the best - Nicks attention to detail / knowledge whilst booking a tailor-made itinerary for friends meeting up from different sides of the globe was superb, answering many silly questions before finally booking!

We were lucky enough to have Kit as our guide, he is great company and a friend, he knew exactly where to find animals, and has a great knowledg... read more

Three of us spent two weeks traveling over Namibia, Botswana and ending in Vic Falls. Esmari put together a tailored-made programme with stays in the most iconic places from the Namib Desert, Naukluft Park, Swakopmund to Etosha, the Caprivi strip, the Okavango Delta and Chobe and ending in Victoria Falls. We loved her readiness to address our specific requests.

This safari was excellent in every respect. Our guide, Nick, began by asking us about our main goals for the trip. Nick, a Namibian vet, has a vast knowledge of birds and wildlife, as well as the flora, of the region, and beyond. He was generous in sharing that knowledge, never tiring of answering questions. It was a pleasure to have Nick as our guide.

We thoroughly enjoyed our almost 3 week trip through Namibia, Botswana and Zambia. Nick put together for us a well paced itinerary that took in some amazing experiences and sights. A visit to the Namib desert and Etosha is recommended to all.

The accommodation was also well chosen for the locations, comfort and food

Big thanks to Jakes for looking after us ... read more

In a fantastic trip around Namibia (and a bit of Botswana), Nick was able to show us the best of the nature of that part of the world. Despite our many requests (animals of all kinds, plants, rocks) he organized the trip so that we could see almost everything. Indefatigable and attentive at all times to our needs. A pleasure to travel with him. Hopefully we can rep... read more

Recently spent 3 weeks touring Zambia, Botswana, and Namibia in the Southwest part of Africa and the highlight of this trip was Etosha National Park in Namibia. At the end of the dry season we saw so many animals at the watering holes, each day was filled with lions, elephants, zebras, and the rare black rhino. A hidden gem for sure. Namibia is a beautiful and dive... read more
