Outstanding Namibian Safari
We had a 12 day accommodated safari that arranged and led by Wild Dog Safaris. It was excellent! Our guide, Ian, was first class and extremely knowledgable of the animals, birds and the Namibian culture. The accommodations were in 4-star lodges, the Erongo Wilderness Resort and Okonjima Reserve were particularly memorable. The vehicle provided by Wild Dog was comfortable and excellent for game viewing and photography. The variety and number of animals and birds in Etosha National Park was very impressive. This was my 4th African safari and it was the best!

Wild Dog Safaris opened Namibia's windows of extraordinary beauty & wild life with care and context.
The 7-Day Northern Namibia Safari excelled my expectations.
Organized to the T, we always new what was next in store, and as Namibia's absolute beauty opened up to us day-by-day we smiled and conversed and laughed and were awe-inspired the whole way.
Service came with utmost care and context.
Always safe we closed our eyes in the safety of good tents in camps--some of them--that will remain with us for always as the light of our fires burned down to glowing embers. Thank you Paulie for vegetarian fare, and George for running a tight 'ship', keeping us informed and a 'family' out in nowhere land. You were the best.

Our experience with Wild Dog Safaris was excelent! From the organization to the kindness of the guide/driver and the chef passing through the natural sightseeings included on the Sossusveil 3-Day Tour, all the animals we saw and the nice food we ate, the whole experience with this guys was very good. Everything was made on time, never delayed. Maybe the truck must be renewed because the one we had for the tour was a bit "old" ;)
Be sure we will take another tour with Wild Dog Safaris when returning to Namibia and we will recommend them to our friends and other tourist.

Experienced, knowledgeable guides, great food, interesting and varied agendas.
The guides were friendly and helpful, knew the facts about the different areas we visited, spoke good English, always courteous and often had a good sense of humor. The assistants/cooks also participated in putting up tents, made good tasting and varied food and lent a helping hand whenever needed.
I would only recommend changing one or two camp sites, especially Dqae Qare San Lodge. It had no water & no electricity. We heard there usually is some problem while in that camp.

An experience of a lifetime!
I went on Wild Dog Safaris 23 day tour (a combination of the 7 day north, 7 day south and 9 day delta and falls) and I had the most amazing time from start to finish! It was my first time visiting Namibia (and Botswana and Zimbabwe) and first time properly camping. Namibia is such a beautiful country and their tours really do cover all of the highlights. All of the staff were so friendly and helpful, nothing was too much to ask. I really would recommend them to anyone and have been raving about them to all of my family and friends since I have been home!
The camping was so much better than I thought it would be. The tents are really big and all of the campsites are great! Most of them have brick built bathrooms and even the few that don’t it’s actually a really nice experience to shower under the stars (those turned out to be my favourite campsites). They are all so different and in such lovely places, most of them have swimming pools which are a god send at the end of the day! I was really pleasantly surprised with the food. I didn’t think it would be nearly as good as what it was and it’s amazing what the assistants can produce just on a campfire. I’m gluten free and all of the assistants I had always made a conscious effort to make sure there was food that I could eat.
Despite the long drives some days, the views are amazing and you get to see so much whilst you’re driving and it is essential to fit in all that you do in such a short space of time. All of the guides are great at making sure you stop off to stretch your legs, take pictures and buy cold drinks, etc.
There were so many highlights that I will never forget; the waterhole at Okaukuejo waterhole, Victoria Falls, bungee jumping!, Etosha, sunsets/sunrises (everywhere!), Fish River Canyon, Kolmanskop, Sossusvlei .. so many wow moments, the list is endless.
The whole experience really is what you make it. Go in with an open mind and you’re bound to have the best time! Thank you Wild Dog for giving me an experience I will never forget!

Incredible from start to finish! 10/10
I have just returned from what can only be described as a trip of a lifetime on the 7 Day North with Wild Dog Safaris.
Having been apprehensive initially about camping my fears quickly disappeared. The camps that we stayed at throughout the trip were all clean, spacious and had fantastic views. The tents were spacious and easy to both put up and take down. Our guide George and the Assistant Joseph were both incredible. Georges knowledge and passion for Namibia and animals was infectious and Josephs culinary skills left absolutely nobody hungry including both vegetarians and gluten-free clients on my trip, a real credit to the organisation!
The game drives through Etosha National Park are most definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity. I was lucky enough to see four of the big five (no buffalo in Etosha) along with giraffes, zebra, rhino and many more. The floodlight waterhole at the second night in Etosha was most definitely one of those experiences I shall never forget.
Both the Himba tribe experience as well as the Twyfelfontein trail walk were real eye openers and broke up the time spent in the truck nicely. The trucks have huge windows as well as a roof that you are able to open up to get a view from high on the game trails and considering the amount of miles they do and different terrains were much cleaner and more comfortable than I had expected.
Namibia is a fantastic country and using Wild Dog Safaris was most definitely the right decision. I would 100% recommend Wild Dog and I have already started looking at other tours with the tour group. 10/10

Fantastic holidays in an incredibly beautiful country
I am a solo traveler and I have just returned from a 3-week holiday in Namibia, including a few days in Botswana, finishing at the Victoria falls. The trip was organised by wild dog-safaris based in Windhoek and I must say it was my best holiday ever. Namibia is a stunningly beautiful country, so beautiful it is almost impossible to describe.
The first part of my trip consisted of the 7-day Southern swing group tour which was nice and relaxed. Our guide Marcus was very knowledgeable about his country, very friendly, always ready to answer questions and an excellent safe driver. Alfeus his assistant was a great cook and the food was excellent and plentiful. My fellow travellers and I were given ample time to enjoy the scenery, taking photos and at no time did we feel rushed to move along. It was my first ever group tour and I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
The second part of my trip was a 2 week self-driving tailored tour. At the planning stage, all my emails to wild dog safaris were answered within 24 hours. The tour was perfectly organised; I was met by Lucinda who gave me all the appropriate documentation, detailed map and accommodation vouchers. All I had to do was to follow the itinerary and enjoy myself.
I will definitely be returning to Namibia; it is such a beautiful and vast country that it is worth a few visits
