I really enjoyed staying at Chameleon after the desert trip they organised. We had a large room, with two single beds and a large bathroom. It was all very convenient, with nice African design.
The hostel is located quite close to the center of Windhoek,...More
I am doing an internship in Windhoek, and have been staying at Chameleon for a while now. Not to be too cliche, but it really has been a home away from home for me. This is by far the best backpackers in Windhoek, and I...More
Accommodation – we stayed in one of the guestrooms, which was beautifully decorated with African art, had a spacious bathroom, a comfy sofa, a safe for valuables & a large bed (which was let down slightly by the uncomfortable pillows).

Breakfast was provided as part of the room cost but would liked to see cereal on the menu. Would be great if a better toaster was available .The...More

I bought at their travel agency 2 day trips in Windhoek. Whole day to Naankuse - 1800 NAD including a wonderful lunch (feed carnivores in the morning and meet the San people in the afternoon). Then afternoon trip to Katutura 300 NAD. Regarding safaris or trips, I booked with Wild Dogs, but I know they have same tours, and more or less same prices. I hope this help.

Namibia is traditionally a tough country to travel independently if you are used to relying on public transport and budget accommodation however with 4 weeks you could probably get around to some of the sights if you are adventurous. However, if you are open to hiring a vehicle and camping, and able to find others to share the experience with then you can certainly control your budget and see most the places that you want to see in a 4 week period. My recommendation would be to send us an email, you can find our email address on our website, with the following information and we can pop that up on our notice board for you and if anyone is going to be around during the same period they can get in touch with you directly;
Destinations you want to visit
Would be worth doing a little research into the different options if you do think that is a good option for you, looking at the costs of cars per day, types of car that you will need for the route you want to do, rough budget of fuel for the route etc, and checking out some of the different campsites or lodges as these can really vary in price.
Alternatively, if you are looking for tours, we can also assist, just let us know and we can point you in the right direction for your time, interests and budget.
