Namibia; a country of contrasting landscapes, abundant wildlife and fascinating cultures, is surprisingly home to numerous budget safaris which are the perfect antidote for travellers wanderlust during the current economic climate. Here are my recommendations for the top 5 budget safaris Namibia:
- A Classic Namibia Safari – Save on accommodation costs and join a traditional camping safari. Not only does this allow you to get closer to nature and the wildlife but it also allows you to explore this fascinating country on a budget.
- A Short Cultural Safari – An obvious way to cut costs on a safari in Namibia is to go for just a short holiday such as a 3 day cultural safari where you will witness the lifestyle and learn about the traditions of some of Namibia’s oldest tribes and cultural groups.
- An Etosha National Park Safari – Save money by staying in one place of interest such as Etosha National Park rather than travelling to lots of different places. On an Etosha safari you will see spectacular landscapes and an abundance of wildlife including elephants, wildebeest, zebra, hyenas, lions, cheetah, leopards, giraffes, antelopes and numerous bird species. You can easily see the main highlights of Etosha in just 3 days.
- A Namibian Family Adventure – African family adventures are becoming more affordable and you can’t beat exploring the fascinating and breathtakingly beautiful country of Namibia. You’ll see the diverse wildlife as well as take part in such exciting activities as sand boarding, desert safaris and cultural excursions.
From camping in the wilderness to simply taking a shorter holiday, budget safaris Namibia are more accessible than you may think.
