        Can definitely recommend!
        My tour guide for the day was Shaka and it was a very nice tour. Got to see the different sides of the city and had great conversations with him. We went to the most popular sides but also saw local markets. It was well organized and I was picked up and drop out at my location.

        Must do Namibian experience.
        What a great experience getting into the townships and understanding the breadth of how everyday Namibians live. We had lots of interesting discussions about a range of topics and got to taste the incredibly delicious , fresh bbq meat and handmade salsa at the markets , met some lovely people and visited the contrasting lakeside setting of the women’s cooperative . We only wish the tour could have lasted all day. Highly recommended.

        Fascinating Namibia
        Mount Etjo: beautiful ! I heard animals at night and saw millions of stars. Okaukuejo: very big, it has washing basins and a place to hang clothes. Palmwag: I loved it !!!! Cape cross: a divine place by the ocean. We are all very well conditioned. Josef, the guide, very professional. The cook, Bronihel, prepares healthy and tasty food. Both are: attentive, kind and very funny. Thank you for making my dream come true, to get to know the fascinating Namibia. !!!!!!

        The best trip ever and with the best guides ever!
        This was one of the best trips in my life! And for a great extent that is thanks to the best and most caring and hard-working guides Kennedy and Erastus! They worked tirelessly to make our trip enjoyable. Amd the group we had was full of funny characters and we had a TON of fun while exploring the gems of the gorgeous, gorgeous country Namibia is! Will definitely be back, maybe for some birding and definitely hope to catch again these two gentlemen! ❤️ Cheers from Bulgaria/Netherlands

        The best tour!
        Anton was an epic guide who really had our back on every level. I felt very safe with him being our tour guide and he was a good driver. He showed us his excellent cooking skills as we ate the most delicious food - especially the stew! He joined in a lot of jokes with us too! Everyone on our trip were solo travellers which made it really easy to make friends and we all had such a laugh! I heard about Chameleon from other travellers who had been before and the trip definitely lived up to / exceeded the high expectations that my friends gave me! I’m quite independent so the idea of a tour made me a bit hesitant, but it was honestly an amazing trip from start to finish and I am so glad I did it with Chameleon Safaris. It is one of my favourite ever tours, I highly recommend it to any solo traveler!!

        Highly recommended!
        This trip was so much fun! At first, I was a bit hesitant about going on a camping trip with strangers in the midst of Namibian winter, but any doubts were soon proven unnecessary. The staff at Chameleon Safaris is great. Our guide Anton was an excellent and resourceful guide who went above and beyond to turn our trip into a great memory. He thought of everything, including extra blankets for those who forget their own, drove us everywhere, told us about history and nature, and if that's not enough, also turned out to be an amazing chef; the food was delicious. Thank you Anton! The group was fun, the camping site at Sesriem was well kept and clean, the views were stunning - photos don't do it justice so you will just have to find out yourself.

        Highly recommend this trip!
        I am so satisfied with the trip arrangements and the driver Anton. He is very capable of everything! Perfect English introduction about the places we visited and drove the van so safely! He is a very kind, knowledgeable and helpful tour guide. I am a 71 year old retired teacher, and he encouraged and helped me to go up and down the sand hills and the volley. He cooked very nice food for us and so efficient to set up the tent for us. In one word, he deserves double payment by his boss!

        Great Tour of Un-Worldly Namibia!
        This was a great way to see the country and almost all of the key stops in Namibia! From the transportation to the unique and lovely accommodations and delicious food options (which also surprised us)! Gideon was our driver and guide for most of the trip and even climbed Big Daddy with us! He was knowledgeable and fun. There are some long driving days and some bumpy roads, but it’s a great way to see the many changing landscapes. I also highly recommend doing the Sandwich Bay with dune boarding add-on tour in Swakopmund. It was one of our trip highlights!

        Unforgettable Namibian Desert Tour
        Sossusvlei is so beautiful. Although the road was very bumpy, but the scenery are cover all worths. Our guides Simon & Smith took good care of us. The dinner was delicious. Yummy. The tent was a bit shabby, but it was a good experience.

        What a wonderful tour!
        Our guide was Kennedy, who is a genius at driving and leading, most importantly, full of humor! I think his episodes are a part of scenery in Namibia, should be as well-known as the Sossusvlei. We really enjoyed our journey and had so many good memories with other new friends. Personally speaking, the experience was one of the highlights in Namibia.

        First time in Namibia must do!
        Shaka was my tour guide, and he was very conversational and made you feel comfortable the whole time. He also pulled no punches in talking honestly about Namibia's history and the current political climate. The tour was great, very eye opening, and the food was fantastic.

        Taste of Namibia safari 7 days
        We visited the Taste of Namibia safari for 7 days. The guide was Gideon. There are no words to describe the emotions of safari. The guide was great, calm, attentive, solved all the issues. Everything indicated in the safari was 100% completed. All the lodges were beautiful. What I saw exceeded my expectations. My first safari in Africa, which left only positive emotions. The safari organization is the best. I recommend it to everyone.

      At first I was skepabout going on a camping trip, it was my first time camping! But Simon made this such a pleasant experience, I’d even consider camping for a whole week! We left from Windhoek and by the time we got to Soussisvlei, we were all friends. Also, Simon is the ultimate braai master and he makes an excellent potjie. I recommend this 100%.
