Hotels are mainly located in Windhoek and Swakopmund and the main towns as hotels tend to give way to lodges and other types of accommodation in the bush.
Many people enjoy walking holidays or walking safaris. It's a safe country and the desert landscape of Namibia is stunning. There are lots of options for walking safaris and trekking. Trekking tours can be anything from 3 to 7 days long and you can hike Fish River Canyon, trek in the desert, climb Brandberg Mountain or combine any of the trips to a normal safari or tour style holiday trip particularly if you a on a self drive safari. For those less adventurous there are many lodges that offer day hikes and walking trails on their land, some offer more cost effective campsites too. Namibia is famed for its wide open spaces so hiking is a terrific way to enjoy the country.
We also offer package holidays to Botswana, Zambia and Namibia. Though we don't often offer international flights, we can get these but we get discounted rates on regional flights. Package deals and package holidays can include combined country destinations such as Namibia and Botswana or even with Victoria Falls or other areas of Zambia. You can even start your package deal in South Africa - maybe Cape Town or Johannesberg and self drive through the other countries - Namibia, Botswana etc.
Must see destinations in Namibia include Etosha and Sossusvlei though many add Fish River Canyon and Damaraland to the list. As well as great cultural trips and meeting different culture groups and tribes such as Himba tribe people, and the Bushman tribe people you will meet in the Kalahari desert in Namibia and Botswana of Southern Africa. There are many other cultures and tribes to encounter and many visitors enjoy the interaction with the local tribe people.
Game viewing in Botswana is a highlight - the Okavango Delta is home to many species, the Okavango Delta has permanent water ways and therefore animals come to the Okavango Delta as there is plenty of food and water. Of course, there are many people in the Okavango Delta too, though not in Moremi Game Reserve as this is a private game reserve. Many accommodation places such as the lodges and tented camps fly you between the camps and lodges as chartered flights. Flying is not a cheap option but the most reliable way to tour through the Okavango Delta particularly in wet season. Cheap flights and cheap package tours are more often available during the green season or wet season when cheap flights and cheap package tours encourage visitors on safari and tours to Botswana. Whenever you decide to take your holiday or safari it is always a good time to visit, whether you are seeing more numbers of game in dry season or the greenness of the landscape in wet season your holiday will be a holiday to remember. Many holiday visitors to Botswana stay in luxury camps for a luxury safari but Botswana is not a cheap holiday. In fact safari holidays are becoming more expensive even if you self drive or take a scheduled safari, camping safari or fly in safari. Fly in safaris are available in Namibia and Botswana and for those with limited time available its a great way to keep travelling times down and enjoy flying and viewing the countries by air. Many flights are in smaller planes and are chartered flights to work with arrival of international flights and the departure of international flights. Many lodges will have their own airstrips so there is minimum travel time between lodges and camps whether its a camping safari or luxury safari. Safari holidays are a popular way to explore Namibia, Botswana and South Africa. Chobe National Park is one of the most visited areas of Botswana, there is a large selection of hotels, accommodation establishments such as lodges and safari lodges inside and outside the park, there are also a few campsites around for the more cost conscious traveller and holiday maker. Chobe attracts huge numbers of game such as elephant, lion, as well as leopard, hippo, buffalo etc. Birding is also popular as there are many species of birds
For a family holiday then Namibia is a perfect destination. Easy for self drive clients, terrific for fly in safaris, guided safaris, personalised safaris, or a scheduled camping or scheduled accommodated safari or trip. Holidays are meant to be relaxing for all, not just the kids so many family safaris are designed to allow for relaxation, some adventure, maybe some trekking but mainly for all to return from their holiday with great memories whether it was an all inclusive holiday, package deal or we assisted you with the safari only as well as accommodation at the start and end of the trip
Alternatively we are chameleon holidays and travel can offer various volunteering programmes in namibia such as an elephant research project, other volunteer work includes a land clearance project and animal release programme and animal welfare programme. There are options for working holidays but volunteering is becoming a more popular option as part of a longer holiday package. Conservation work with endangered species of animals such as cheetah, wild dog, black rhino are offered as well capture and release conservation programmes. Sustainable development within communities is included in many of these programmes to ensure that the local communities benefit from the conservations of such species. Many people like volunteer work as they feel they are giving something back to both wild animals and local communities. Volunteering is available mainly in Namibia though there are other programmes on offer in South Africa that Chameleon can offer.
At chameleon we take responsible tourism seriously, we utilise many locally run companies - we are one in fact, employing Namibian staff, using local suppliers and supporting programmes to help local communities
