Please Note: If a minimum number of guests are stated, we can unfortunately NOT RESPOND to an inquiry for less than the required minimum.
This safari is only possible with a minimum booking of two Guests. Although not bound by any particular season, the months of December to January can be uncomfortably hot - height of the Namibian summer! On the other hand, the Kunene River - one of your "ports of call" - offers not only exhilarating activities, but an opportunity to cool down, besides the swimming pool. The activities mentioned, could include canoeing or white water rafting. If a "best" time must be singled out, weather- wise, it will probably be from February to mid- July. However, this safari is available throughout the year - whenever it suits you. Due to the fact that the duration of this safari is only ten days, no camping will be included, only full accommodation. This will ensure that you could spend every possible minute enjoying the adventure and experience that this safari has to offer. All meals and activities are included in the safari price.
