        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.

        Greatest camping experience ever
        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%.

        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.

        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.

        Chameleon is great! They took care of everything down to picking me up from the airport. They were extremely helpful and very organized. The accommodations were excellent and exceeded my expectations. Our guide, Kennedy, was exceptional! He is extremely knowledgeable and took very good care of all of us throughout the entire tour. I highly recommend Chameleon and Kennedy for any trip to Namibia!

      Great way to see most of what Namibia has to offer. Despite the fact that it is a camping tour you spend 1 night in a hotel and 2 nights in a picturesque remote chalet which gives a great rest from the tents that I am particularly not a great fan of.
      Sossusvlei and Deadvlei are just stunning, we did dune 45 at sunrise which is a bomb.
      Very interesting to visit ghost town Kolmanskop and watch the fish river canyon in its mighty beauty.
      I want to highlight my guides Gregory and Bronhil who made this trip an unforgettable blast! The guys can literally do all: make tents, cook great food, have a fascinating discussion, tell the country history and facts plus withstand thousands of driving kilometers at high safety level. They have become like my family by the end of the trip that I had to do alone for most of the part due to the 2nd lady decision to quit earlier.
      Highly recommend both Chamelion safaris and Gregory /Bronhil as the guides.
      NB you spend in the car 400 km a day in average which is tiring - keep it in mind when choosing the activity

      It was wonderful to read about your travel adventures with Gregory and Bronhil. Travelling by yourself can be daunting, so it is great to know they made you feel comfortable and part of a friendly group. As you mentioned, Namibia is a big country and to see the highlights, there is a lot of driving involved. We're glad this did not diminish your tour experience.

      Tour was excellent, highly recommend. Not too long, not too short (7day Namibia Highlights). Packed with activities but didn’t feel rushed. Long drives but plenty of stops along the way. Accommodation was comfortable everywhere, special mention to Desert Camp in Namibe desert. Our guide Tinashe was amazing, always in a good mood, very knowledgeable, great cook and great driver, made all the difference.

      The tour was an amazing experience. Our guide Kennedy is a really good chef, a very good driver and a lovely tour guide. We could ask him everything and he always had an answer. It was always fun. The stops were amazing, especially the fish river canyon. It wasn't too much driving at each day and you would always see a few things per day. I really enjoyed the nature of Namibia and we also saw some animals as zebras or ostriches. Thanks for the fun adventure :)

      This safari was an incredible experience! The driver Chilo and guide Taimi were both fun and knowledgeable. The landscapes and vistas on this tour were absolutely amazing...indescribable even. The tour group was small (four people) and made for a very personalized and unique experience. I can't recommend this safari enough if you are visiting Namibia.

      I had a wonderful seven day trip with Chameleon! Our tour guide Greg and camp assistant Ronnie went the extra mile to make sure we were comfortable and that we were on time. During the tour, a lot of information was provided to us to contextualize our safari experience. I had an amazing time with Chameleon and would recommend the tour to anyone interested in visiting Namibia.

      A friend recommended Chameleon Safaris to me and I'm glad I took her recommendation. Overall, the entire tour starting from Swakopmund, was well-organised. Our guide, Kennedy was fantastic as he went from our guide, driver, chef and facilitator to a friend by the end of the tour. He did bring a local perspective to an otherwise tourist adventure. Certainly made this beautiful memory even more special.

      Kennedy was the best!!! He has a wealth of knowledge about the geology, culture and history of Namibia. We felt very safe and Kennedy is a fantastic cook😃. The Southern safari is great if you are looking more for landscapes and adventure. Not many animal sightings.

      Thanks for your enthusiastic review and Kennedy will be really pleased to hear your thoughts on the trip. As you mentioned, the south is more about landscapes. With the recent rain, I am sure it was stunning. If you are keen to see more animals then the north (Etosha) is where you need to head. Maybe a return visit is needed!
