Stayed in this Hostel at the start and end of the trip on B&B terms. I think it's part of the Chamelion Holiday Company. It's a friendly Hostel; you wash up the plates you use and cook your own food in the communal kitchen. Small...More
It is a very popular backpacker in windhoek, so in high season they might be fully booked if you just show up without reservation. But they have an outdoor bunk bed and 2 set tents that they don't take reservations for, so you could be...More

Lacking the scenery of a coastal, desert or mountain backpackers, Chameleon is about as good as it gets in a city. Friendly staff, convivial atmosphere and comfortable rooms; you won't go wrong here. Plenty of deck chairs around the pool and next to the bar...More
Chameleon is one of the best backpackers in the city of Windhoek , friendly staff and the lovely environment.
I mostly enjoy the braai they have every Friday and the quiz night which brings the guest close.

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.
