Amazing trip to Namibia!!

Views: 12 Visited: Aug 2019 Reviewed: Aug 19, 2019

Me and my boyfriend had never gone to Namibia or any other country in the southern part of Africa. We were a little bit worried, especially about hiring an agency we had never used before (not even heard about, as Brazil people don't usually go to African countries other than South Africa).

However, since the beginning of our contact with Nature Travel (many thanks here to San-Mari, who was always kind and helpful), we were very well suppo... read more

All we wanted to see...and more

Views: 77 Visited: Apr 2019 Reviewed: Aug 11, 2019

Our private tour took us through astounding desert scenery, to the tops of unimaginable dunes and to sightings of incredible wildlife at fabulous watering holes. We started with a visit to the incredible dunes of Sossusvlei. Our guide, Charl, ensured we got to them in time to photograph them in the best morning light possible. Climbing to the top was a wonderful experience as was wandering among the 900 year old trees on the salt flat. From th... read more

Conservation Tour

Views: 74 Visited: May 2019 Reviewed: Jun 24, 2019

Three friends and I went on the Conservation Tour in May and June. It was a wonderful experience. The guide, Previous, was excellent: knowledgeable, easy-going, great sense of humor, helpful, and a skilled driver. The vehicle was roomy, with large windows. The accommodations were excellent, as were the included tours. I highly recommend this journey through a fascinating country. read more

The Adventure of A Lifetime

Views: 187 Visited: Apr 2019 Reviewed: Jun 03, 2019

I contacted Nick Buys, the founder of Nature Travel Namibia. I told him exactly what I hoped to do and see in Namibia and he created an itinerary specifically designed to my desires that far exceeded my expectations. Nick and his entire team were so professional and easy to work with, and they gave me the adventure of a lifetime camping in the Caprivi Strip. Traveling with Nick was like getting shown around a new part of the world with an old ... read more

Amazing Namibia experience!

Views: 164 Visited: Feb 2019 Reviewed: Apr 09, 2019

I decided a while ago to go to the country of Namibia. Not knowing much about the country, I looked for tour operators on the internet. I emailed about 5 or 6 companies and decided to go with the one that made me feel most "special", and not just one that made me feel like a source of easy money.

From the moment the first email from Nature Travel Namibia arrived until one of their guides dropped me off at the airport on my way home, they we... read more

Outstanding safari and service

Views: 172 Visited: Sep 2018 Reviewed: Oct 23, 2018

We had a wonderful time. The entire trip was very enjoyable and interesting. Namibia is a stunning place, Lucky was a fantastic guide; very knowledgeable, an amazing spotter of all types of animals and great company.

We were particularly grateful because SAA caused a missed connection at Johannesburg and our flight the next morning was cancelled. Esmari's communication, not only with this setback but throughout was excellent and Lucky wen... read more

Leopard: an incredible experience

I have just returned from a wonderful two week self drive safari in Namibia with a couple of friends and cannot believe what a brilliant time we had. The trip was well planned from start to finish and I cannot thank Esmari enough for her attention to detail. The accommodation was excellent, the food brilliant and the vehicle we were given very good indeed. The trip had so many highs for us but one of the best was seeing a leopard near the Riet... read more

Botswana and Namibia safaris

Views: 198 Visited: Jun 2018 Reviewed: Jul 03, 2018

We had the delightful experience of booking 2 separate safaris with Nature Travel Namibia. We spent 6 days in Botswana and a week in Namibia.

The trip was almost seamless, with complex transfers by van, small planes to Okavango Delta locations, and truck safaris to remote places all mixed into one trip. Nicolette Mueller was our liaison for the planning and she always responded in a very timely manner to our thoughts, ideas and logistics p... read more

Fabulous Namibia

From start to finish Nature Travel Namibia were fantastic, and we had an amazing holiday. As a family holiday with 2 young children, we had specific requirements, which were well thought out as NTN proposed an interesting age appropriate itinerary which would be enjoyable for all of us. We stayed at several different hotels / guest houses which were again, thought of with our children in mind, and each place added something to the enjoyment of... read more

Trip round Botswana

Views: 257 Visited: Mar 2018 Reviewed: Mar 29, 2018

NTN were total professionals. Their suggestions for lodges in Kalahari and Okavango were exactly what we wanted and the small flights around the area went off like clockwork.

The whole trip will stay in our memory forever. Deception Valley Lodge is stunning. Guides Wynand and Coco gave us a real insight into their beautiful reserve and to see two young lions on the airstrip, just feet away from the jeep, was the highlight of the trip. The f... read more

Top notch safari!

Views: 284 Visited: Oct 2017 Reviewed: Nov 15, 2017

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

Namibia safari

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 knowledge and taste in wine - ALWAYS let him choose the tipple at dinner..!!

Amazing discovery of Namibia wildlife, people and landscapes

Views: 481 Visited: Aug 2017 Reviewed: Aug 25, 2017

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.

The combination of landscapes, colors, wildlife and people was simply stunning.... read more

The enchantment of birds in Southern Africa

Views: 491 Visited: Sep 2016 Reviewed: Oct 19, 2016

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.

The lodges chosen by Nature Travel Namibia (NTN) were situated on three great African... read more

Amazing Namibia

Views: 644 Visited: Jun 2016 Reviewed: Aug 08, 2016

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 and sharing his enormous knowledge of the flora, fauna and people. read more

Five aardvarks on a trip is not a bad number

Views: 479 Visited: Jul 2016 Reviewed: Jul 21, 2016

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 repeat many times.
By the way, we saw five aardvarks and six aardwolves along our ... read more

Magical Namibia

Views: 433 Visited: Oct 2015 Reviewed: Nov 16, 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... read more

Incredible tour of Etosha National Park

Views: 1080 Visited: Sep 2015 Reviewed: Nov 09, 2015

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 diverse country and remains very affordable.

Special thanks to Nick and Nature T... read more
