Etosha 3 Day Safari
The overall experience was amazing! The tour guides were accommodating, friendly and knowledgeable.The food was amazing and the campsites offered all required facilities to a high standard.
Prior to the Safari, I was well informed, and communication from Wild Dog Safari's was excellent (even though I was in another country).
The Safari itself was an awesome experience for the first time, it is all luck dependent as to what animals you get to see,

The tour with these guides was so amazing!!!
We had a really good experience with the communication with the operator. They answered every question and all employees were so nice and carefully since the first moment. Our safari guides were more than friendly and really funny. We laughed a lot and had so much fun during the 10 days. I can recommend these tour guides for your next safari tour in Namibia.

Great experience, proffesional & dedicated staff
First the booking-period was very pleasant and comfortable. Every question I asked Memory was quickly and satisfiable answered.
I spend 19 day's with Wild Dog Safari's and it was an experience I will never forget. I did a combination tour with three different guides and assistants. The guides were extremely dedicated to me as a guest. Nothing was to much to explain and both the guide and the camp assistant worked their butt of to cook, help with the tents and with everything they could to make our travel comfortable.
During the game drive they gave me every opportunity i needed to switch my lenses. I have a 600mm telelens and it takes some time to switch it but that was no problem. The guides went the long mile to provide opportunities to see game or other beautiful things.
We encountered two set backs. Two car breakdowns due to the bad roads in Namibie. The second costs me the visit to the minevillage and the afternoon in Swakopmund. It was compensated by paying the tours I booked the next day in Swakopmund but I lost the opportunity to by gemstones which I was really looking forward to.
During the 9 days tour to Zimbabwe the tents were packed in the bus in stead of the roof of the bus. And some guest took way more luggage with them then according to the guidelines. As a result the sleeping bags had to travel in the cabin which way decreased our space in the bus. Wich such small space in the bus the long drives are not comfortable.
But overall a very pleasant and professional organization. Trips fantastic organized and if I had to choose again I would go for Wild Dog Safaries in a second.

Adventure of a lifetime in Sossusvlei!
We had a wonderful time with Wild Dog Safaris on our recent trip to see the dunes in Sossusvlei! The tour guides were great and very informative. They were also kind and accommodating. We throughly enjoyed our group adventure into the desert. I would say the only thing I would suggest for Wild Dog is that they purchase new plates, cups, drying racks and silverware. The plates were often cracked and had stains on them which hampers the dining experience. Other than that we had a great adventure with Wild Dog.

Its great to have your review and thanks for taking the time to post this, we really appreciate your feedback. I just wanted to follow up on the guides equipment because you are right, some of the cutlery and crockery needs replacing. We do this every year and the year is up! So all guides are having a complete review of their kit and in about 2 weeks time the new kit should be up and running. Thanks Tina and we are happy you had a good trip with us.

Great Value for Money
I booked my tour at quite late notice and wild dogs were great with the booking and always available for answering questions. I did the 7 day south and 7 day northern tour. Camping was great fun, there was lots of excursions and sites included in both trips. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and made the trip run smoothly. One of the groups was a size of 8 and the other a size of 14. 8 was a perfect size, but 14 felt too large. I would definitely recommend them to independent travellers, who want to explore Namibia.

Maximum miles in minimum time from Windhoek to Vic Falls
In May I joined the 9 Days Delta and Vic Falls Tour. The itinerary turned out to be well planned, the campsites were better than expected, we usually stayed on the campsite of a lodge with all the benefits like swimmingpool or sundowner bar. That was excellent. There were plentiful activities on the road, like folk performances in the San camp or nature walks in the Okavango.
I would recommend this trip to anyone who wants a good first overview in order to plan later trips. A comfortable trip - though with long, long bus rides - with very good catering. Our guides Willem and Abiud were extremely helpful and anticipated every individual need. Thanks again for being like fathers!!!
I hope Wild Dog will invest in the equipment. The overall impression was that many items were neglected or downright grubby (sorry, but that's a fact).
