Namibia is a great destination choice for visitors wanting an eco friendly safari holiday. Namibia is the first country in the world to incorporate environmental protection into it’s constitution, so you can be sure that conservation is of key concern to Namibians.
Community based tourism projects are popular in many locations across the country, hence travelling to Namibia can offer a true ecotourism experience which has tangible benefits for local communities and for wildlife, the ethos upon which ecoTravel Africa was created.
The accommodation options used by ecoTravel Africa have been selected based on their environmental and conservation management practices and it’s often possible for you to see the conservation and/or development projects on the sites themselves. A variety of accommodation options exist, from camping to luxury lodges, it’s completely up to you how you would like to spend your time in Namibia. ecoTravel Africa will tailor your accommodation directly towards your needs and can encompass any mix you desire, from camping in the foothills of Sossusvlei to sipping cocktails on the veranda of your personal bungalow overlooking the Kwando river.
Visiting National Parks, Private Reserves and Conservancys means that you are contributing to the conservation of wildlife in Namibia.
More information about all the projects that you will be contributing towards throughout the course of your holiday will be explained in more detail once your itinerary has been finalised. ecoTravel Africa believes that environmental education is important for all travellers, it is essential that you are aware of the issues facing the country which are visiting and that you appreciate how you can help, both whilst you are away and upon your return home.
Namibia encompasses some of the most diverse and stunning scenery in the world, where else can you be lazing on the beach in the morning, driving along a salt road in the afternoon and end up having a sundowner in the company of elephants and spend your evening looking out over a floodlit waterhole.
Where to go depends on what you are looking to get out of your holiday. ecoTravel Africa will put together a tailormade itinerary for you based on your individual requirements. Whilst we highly recommend a self drive tour in Namibia, we also offer escorted tours or small group travel for those that prefer to travel with a guide or with other travellers.
