Travelling on a private basis allows you the freedom and flexibility to choose what you want to see, and when. Each of the itineraries provided in this section are suggestions, and can be tweaked to suit your needs.
If you only have a little time available, try a fly-safari travelling by light aircraft – the aerial views over Namibia are stunning. Or, discover the country by land, either with your own private driver/guide or on a self-drive basis; or choose a family-friendly holiday if you’re travelling with children.
Alternatively, contact us to create your own itinerary from scratch, in consultation with one of our Africa experts. You are also able to combine a Namibia safari with activities in other destination.

We have highlighted the standard of accommodation featured on a tour immediately above the tour itinerary.
In some cases, tours include some departures in one category and some in another: you can see and select the different tour types under ‘tour variations’. For these tours, the itinerary is generally the same and just the standard of accommodation varies. However, if there are any variations in the excursions included, these are shown within the itinerary.
Superior: Most Cox & Kings tours fall under this category and are based in 4- or 5-star accommodation, or the best available.
Luxury: These tours will usually feature 5-star de luxe accommodation throughout.
Standard: Simpler in emphasis, these itineraries typically feature 3- and 4-star accommodation throughout.
Discovery: This type of holiday is best suited to the hardier traveller, as it will typically include some quite basic accommodation, possibly longer and rougher road journeys and, in some cases, more arduous activities, such as trekking.
