it was amazing trip, starting with our guide Tulimo who was very knowlegable and friendly. the views in Namibia are unforgetable- the Dunnes, desserts and Etosha. I would definately recommend this tour to everyone who wants to visit Namibia in only 9 days as you have chance to visit the most intresting places in the country :).

we were also impressed with service provided by Jessica in Windhoek. she went extra mile every time we needed something, starting with PCR test booking ending on booking restuarant and taxi on our last night in Namibia.

Really enjoyed that trip and would recommend to do it! Liked the combination of lodges and camping as accomodation. In total you can visit the highlights of the country and often see sunset and sunrise. The tour starts with etosha nationalpark in the north, continues with nice dunes nearby Swakopmund und ends with the incredible canyon! Would really recommend to do the 9 days Trip instead of the 6 days one since the south worth it!
Thank you Tulimo for the nice tour!

Thanks for joining us on safari and we're happy to hear you had a good time. It's a lot of distance to cover in 9 days but we think it's worth the driving :-)

I highly recommend Chameleon Safaris. We did a 9-day tour covering most of Namibia. We felt we were able to get a great overview of the country. Our guide, Gideon, was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. We were also joined by Jessica, the tour consultant, half way through the trip. She was also very knowledgeable and we all had a great time camping in the south of the country. The food was fantastic (often cooked by Gideon on a open fire), the people were wonderful, we saw every animal we could have hoped for in Etosha, and the views throughout the country were spectacular. I couldn’t recommend Chameleon more. They had a thorough understanding of the ins and outs of everything we wanted to see. You should take this trip!

Chameleon Safaris welcomes all clients regardless of race, creed, nationality or religion. They make every effort to provide a high quality experience to all of their participants. Unfortunately, there is no filter to assess that their clients follow that same ethical code of behavior. In the best case scenario, people traveling together are open minded and create a community by which they share a common experience and have fun together. On the other end of the spectrum, clients traveling together can be dysfunctional and maybe even hostile while traveling long hours and spending so much time together. My 6 day camping trip was in the latter group, spoiled by 2 bad actors who did not show respect for their fellow travelers nor for their guides. The management at Chameleon Safaris were appropriately apologetic: they are very personally invested in their client satisfaction and my trip was an unmitigated disaster. This type of travel involves a bit of risk not knowing who you might meet. I was just very unlucky ( and very disappointed)

Dear Robin, we are very sorry to hear your experience was not pleasant. Having looked into your complaint, one of the major problems is we can't guarantee you'll share the same language and culture as your travelling companions. Often this can lead to a more interesting and fun experience but clearly this was not the case for you, exacerbated by the small group size. We hope this won't taint your overall impression of Namibia and maybe one day you will think of returning.

The 9-day tour covers all of the main highlights of Namibia, and the scenery was just stunningly beautiful! My personal favourite activity was hiking up the dune Big Daddy, from where you get a spectacular view. I also liked the combination of lodges and camping. And we had such a blast with our guides Gideon and Kennedy, they both cooked really well and always made sure our needs were met. I will always remember the many nights we spent sitting under the stars on the campsites and shared good talks and laughs. The only criticism I have is that there was also a lot of driving involved, but I guess that's inevitable if you want to cover all these highlights in such a short time. On the whole I would highly recommend that tour, I absolutely loved it!

Great to hear your trip went well. Yes, Namibia is a big place and this, unfortunately, means driving long distances. Hopefully, the end experiences made up for this. The dunes, star-gazing and good banter around a campfire to name but a few :-)

The 9 day trip was awesome. I chose for the trip with camping, and had a small but amazing group with my guide Taime and driver Oupa Rudolf. After 6 days, I joined another group, which was fully booked with guide and driver Tulimo. Also had a great experience with him. The food that is made every day is great and there are so many highlights to see. Will remember this trip forever

Having previously traveled to 33 different countries In Africa.
Namibia is one of my favourite countries In Africa to visit.
Why??? Because of the beautiful landscapes the amazing scenery the wildlife and the different tribes you can visit who are still holding on to their culture. It just feels like you have been put in the star trek transporter and beamed down to a different planet. I went back to Namibia and did a 9 day highlights tour with CHAMELEON SAFARI'S
They exceeded all my expectations .
The tours leaders Rupert and Taimi.
Were superb up at 5 in the morning cooking our breakfast helping with packing the tents, and keeping us informed each day of the itinerary of the trip.
And Taimi,s knowledge of the history of Namibia was phenomenal.
The other tour leader Rupert was so brilliant as well, driving us from place to place in temps above 30 c i not a job i would fancy doing.
Each day we were well informed about our next destination, the cooking and the food hygiene was superb.
No one on the trip had any issues with upset stomachs or any related illness.
As Namibia is at the top of my list places to visit in Africa.
I was in awe of the tour leader TAIMI, S
knowledge of the history of Namibia.
Both tour leaders were outstanding and exceeded all my expectations.
THANKYOU CHAMELEON SAFARI'S
FOR SUCH A GREAT HOLIDAY.
BRILLIANT FROM START TO FINISH.
A WELL DESERVED 5 STARS.
