- Spend time with San Bushmen and Himba tribes
- Climb the highest sand dunes in the world
- Watch wildlife in Namibia's reserves and national parks
Caught between the Kalahari and the Atlantic Ocean is a country of extreme natural beauty where wildlife roam and some of the continent's most charismatic tribes still live a traditional lifestyle. As well as exploring some of Namibia's highlights such as Etosha N.P. and the world?s highest sand dunes at Sossusvlei, we learn about the San Bushmen's hunter/gatherer traditions, visit a Himba village and go on game walks in some of the country's smaller parks.
What makes this trip responsible?
Tourism can be a real help to local communities, providing income, positive cultural exchanges and a financial incentive to protect their natural environment. Ours is a 'total approach' to responsible tourism, covering everything from the way we plan and operate our trips to the practices of Exodus as a company.
On this trip we use local guides and stay in local campsites as well as park authority campsites (where the money gets used for wildlife conservation). When cooking meals we buy locally produced food. On the extension for the trip we visit the Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF), a charity set up to research cheetahs and educate the public, with the aim of protecting this magnificent cat and it's habitat. We will meet the centre's resident cheetahs (who cannot be released into the wild) and learn about the conservation efforts taking place in Namibia at the education centre and museum.
