Wild at heart

09.11.18

Namibia is one of Africa’s premier safari locations and for the most adventurous of tourists the best way to enjoy its stunning terrain is by camping Safari. Annah Kekana of Wilderness Safaris tells Luke Thomas how they let their guests walk on the wild side.

As part of its fully-serviced Privately-Guided Journeys, Wilderness Safaris has introduced exclusive camping safaris in Namibia – perfectly suited for adventurous guests who want to get back to nature and explore vast and pristine wilderness areas with an expert guide – tailor-made to their exact requirements.

The firm began 35 years ago, offering mobile camping safaris as the cornerstone of its operation. “It has remained our passion to seek out prime wilderness areas and to share these extraordinary natural wonders with our guests. This is why we are so excited about offering these unique, tailor-made, fully-serviced camping adventures in Namibia, going back to our roots and offering a truly authentic bush adventure”, explains Annah Kekana, Wilderness Safaris Explorations Reservations Manager.

An experienced Wilderness Safaris Private Guide, highly trained and noted for their passion and knowledge, will lead each camping safari from start to finish, creating a seamless and detailed interpretive experience. “Added to this, our guides are accomplished wildlife photographers in their own right, and are keen to share their tips and experience to ensure guests capture that perfect image to show their friends and family back home”, Annah added.

Guests are guaranteed a unique and remote wilderness adventure, interesting sightings of a range of desert-adapted species, warm and homely hospitality, and delicious, simple food cooked over the coals.

Suggested camping itineraries include a 4-night/5-day serviced camping safari in Namibia’s Kaokoland. The dry river systems of the arid north-west are vital oases for the elephant and other desert-adapted wildlife that eke out an existence here. This is pure adventure, following sinuous riverbeds in search of an unexpected and delightful diversity of life at every turn.

Another 4-night/5-day suggested camping safari explores the exclusive 450 000-hectare Palmwag Concession in north-west Namibia. Guests track desert-adapted black rhino in the company of an experienced guide and Save the Rhino Trust (SRT) trackers. Certain freshwater springs and the ephemeral Hoanib River will also be explored for other wildlife such as elephant, possibly lion, and Hartmann’s mountain zebra.

These tailor-made camping safaris can also be shortened or extended, or even combined with any of Wilderness Safaris’ camps in this area of Namibia, including Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp, Serra Cafema, Damaraland Camp and Desert Rhino Camp, offering the perfect combination of a rustic bush experience with luxury and style.

“Rather than simply being spectators, today’s experiential travellers tend to seek out highly personalised offerings that allow them to participate in the adventure. Our Explorations and Privately-Guided Journeys, most of which take place in private wildlife concessions exclusive to Wilderness Safaris guests, have been created with this in mind and include a range of activities that allow our guests to experience the bush in a completely immersive way – whether it’s tracking wildlife on foot, or enjoying a dinner in the middle of the wilderness”, Annah concluded.
