General information

Namibia: ‘Africa’s Adventure Playground’! The land of the merciless burning sun, red deserts with huge sand dunes and vast and deserted landscapes! The land of wild horses and rare desert elephants! This is the country that you will discover during this adventure truck journey.

You will visit all the ‘highlights’ of Namibia, but you will also go ‘off the beaten track’ and visit the lesser-known gems of this country. A flexible attitude is desirable, since you will cover many kilometers on unpaved roads. You can book this tour by staying in double dome tents or, if you want a little more comfort, you can stay in accommodations. You can read more about this in the extensive day program.
