Beyond our wildest expectations
Every aspect of our trip was exceptional. The lodges, food, driver/guide, animal sightings, (both quantity & rare), game drives, & visits to The Home of Good Hope, villages, schools & craft markets & co-ops were all memorable.

Brilliant Company and camping trip
I joined Wild Dog Safaris in October for a tour around Namibia. It was unforgettable and had a wonderful time. The guides were excellent, and the areas visited was amazing. My favorites includes Etosha Park, Swakopmund and of course the desert. I would highly recommend Wild Dog Safaris to take care of all your travel needs when in Namibia.

The superb Wild Dog Safaris organised everything we asked them to and nothing was too much trouble.
Wild Dog Safaris organised a fantastic safari for us in October 2013. We had our own Guide who was brilliant - his English and knowledge of Namibia and all the animals he found for us was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble for Wild Dog Safaris, from all the numerous arrangements and planning before we arrived, to collecting us at the airport, finding all the animals we wanted to see, taking us whenever and wherever we wanted to go and to ensuring that our accommodation was all absolutely 5 star! We could not fault Wild Dog Safaris and will definitely be returning to Namibia for another safari with them as soon as possible!

A wonderful trip, superbly organised and fascinatingly varied
I’ve just done the ten day Wild Dog Namibian Explorer trip. It was a journey to recapture lost times for me.Forty three years ago I lived in Okaukoejo for three months then in an engineering campsite on the side of the road towards Outjo for another three. I wanted to see it all again and I wasn’t disappointed.
For a start the Wild Dog organisation was really faultless. I’d like to take our guides, Gabriel and Manfred, home with me to run my life as brilliantly as they ran the trip. I doubt they’d be interested in relocation, though. They are safari guides through and through, both of them so knowledgeable about birds, animals, plants, geology. Did you know that termite mounds all face North to keep them warm and protected? I didn’t. Gabriel did. Both he and Manfred are unflappable, very hard working, it’s quite a knackering amount of driving Gabriel had to do. They are imaginative cooks, too, and the speed with which they prepared each meal for all eleven of us was a bit shaming for those of us more used to cooking in well equipped kitchens than on camp fires. I’ll stop about the guides before their heads burst.
What about the sites and terrain we covered? Stand out camp site for me was Hoada dwarfed by vast granite boulders. We skinny dipped in the pool and sat on top of one huge rock to watch the sunset while Manfred cooked dinner.
In Etosha we saw lots of animals including a pride of 13 lions, the adolescents tumbling, cuffing each other, watched by grouchy dads. Next day, a group of them were feasting on a newly killed zebra.
But it wasn’t even the animals that made the trip but the journey through ever changing terrain under huge, over-arching skies and magnificent cloud formations. The soil colour changes every few kilometres and even the ubiquitous thorn trees vary throughout the journey, some green flat tops, others with tiny white flowers.
Go and see it for yourselves. It’s a wonderful experience.
Unforgettable trip to the North of Namibia with Wild Dog Safaris
I joined Wild Dog Safaris for the 7 Day Northern Safari with George as the guide and Job as his assistant and it was a fantastic experience. I enjoyed every second of that trip to the max and learned so much about the country thanks to George's extensive knowledge about Namibia, the culture and his many skills (cooking, driving, fixing car tyre, language, etc.).
A huge Thank You to George for making the trip unforgettable, Job for the many great dishes and Wild Dog Safaris for the opportunity!

7 Day Northern Namibia Tour
The whole trip was very well planned out and organized - we stopped at all the hot spots and had a decent amount of time to enjoy each place. All the supplies and campsites were amazing and the guides were knowledgeable, personable and fun! They were also excellent cooks! I felt that all the guests had their own personal interests acknowledged and accommodated. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience of Namibia via Wilddog Safaris!

A beyond wonderful experience
I am 72 and my husband 78 and both of us are very fit and healthy. We usually book one night in a country and then wander in back packer style so we wondered what an organised tour would be like. We felt this was the only option because the distances covered are vast and there are few travelers on the road and we certainly made the right choice. We did two seven day safaris to the north and south of Namibia. The guides and cooks were fantastic and served up very good vegetarian food for us especially. Everyone helped with putting up tents and the camp facilities were good and the sites where we stayed spectacular. I had read up on the country before booking and the tours covered what we wanted to see and more. Visits to cheetah and leopard parks were made interesting by having experts talk about the work they were doing although our guide was also especially well informed. The country is exquisitely beautiful with some not to be missed areas such as the Namib desert with its orange sand dunes, Fish River Canyon, and the Quiver Tree forest. The organisers were very laid back but very efficient. We had the time of our lives!
This tour incorporated 3 days in Etosha National Park and 3 days in Sossusvlei (the desert region). From start to finish the entire tour was exquisitely organised.
We were collected from our hotel (which they helped us book) and introduced to our tour guides ( Milner and Ruben - two of the nicest guys you will ever meet)
Our tour group's demographic varied greatly but we all got on like a house on fire.
The Etosha part of our tour consisted of game drives and camping - we got to see loads of animals including a pride of 20 lion, fighting Rhinos and pronking Springbok.
The campsites were very well equipped and comfortable - the guides had us erecting the tents in under 5 minutes! The standard of the cooking blew us away especially since Ruben was working off a campfire.Milner's spirited commentary kept us amused and interested throughout even the long drives.
For the Sossusvlei leg we opted for the lodge accommodation (Dune Lodge) and it was one of the most beautiful places we have ever stayed although if we are honest, Ruben's cooking was superior! The dunes have to be seen to be believed - some of the most exhilarating sights you will ever see. Running down Dune 45 at sunrise will make you feel like a kid and leave you smiling from ear to ear for the rest of the day.
A word of warning, the desert gets really cold at night and the early mornings so do pack a jumper.
If you are planning a trip in Namibia, I would highly recommend "running with the Wild Dogs!!" Brilliant tour operator and fantastic team.

Professional, personal and pleasurable experience
Our tour with Wild Dog Safaris lived up to our expectations; in fact it exceeded them. This was due, in part to our guides, Milton and Steven. They were always professional (even with difficult customers), organized, efficient, personable, fun and with their presence, changed the character of the group and the adventure from special to extra-special.
