About SafariWise
SafariWise is a family run business. Our knowledge of Africa and our experience in leading specialized safaris has continued to grow over the last 19 years. We are a tour operator based in Namibia, specialising in tours within our own country and throughout Africa. We have extended our boundaries due to various demands of our existing clients and newly fresh enquiries. Who does not want to be able to tick-off the migration at Masai-Mara or have a close encounter with the gorillas in Uganda. Come with us ... we lead the way! We offer a wide variety of safaris, from camping tours to fly-in safaris, self-drive or guided tours, individual travel or group tours, general holidays or specialized birding and photographic tours, as well as several scheduled tours. Our featured tours are there to inspire, not dictate. We focus our efforts on tailor-made African experiences that suit you and your budget.

I was with Neil, the owner, and Jakes, employee, with a party of 15 tourists in two vehicles for two weeks, travelling mainly in Namibia but also for short periods in Botswana and Zambia. They were certainly out to optimise our experiences, such that I, not quite as interested in birds as the other 14, opted out of some of the shorter early morning walks. Lots of mammals and other animals to be seen on this trip too. Amazing how N and J spotted birds and other creatures as we drove along, and how they managed to get us all goods views and photographic opps. Thoroughly recommended.

Neil looked after us brilliantly and showed us everything we hoped to see on a two week safari with him in Zambia, Botswana and Namibia. His company found the perfect hotels for us, all excellent in different ways and his ability to spot wildlife of all kinds, especially birds, was awesome. Nothing seemed too much trouble and we are saving the pennies for our next trip.

We just got back from an 18 day safari through northern Namibia and Botswana with Neil as our guide. The route he picked was outstanding and the resorts that we stayed at our were incredible. But the best part of the trip was Neil. This man can spot a gnat at 100m's while driving through rough terrain at speed. Without his expert knowledge of where to look we would have missed 90% of the animals that we saw. His knowledge of flora and fauna are unmatched. There are not enough superlatives to describe how wonderful this trip was and all because of Safari Wise, Neil and Bredene Macleod.

We recently completed a 2 week guided safari thru Namibia and Botswana. Our guide operator was Safari Wise based out of Swakopmund, Namibia. Our guide was Neil Mcleod, who also owns the company. In short, he was amazing. His knowledge was exceptional, a great sense of humour, and he provided an over the top level of service. He took care of everything including making great wine choices every night at dinner. The tour itself was fabulous - we saw everything one would want to see. The accommodations chosen by Neil and Berdene (his wife) were generally very good. I would recommend this guide group to anyone.

Friends had taken Safariwise's three-country tour six years ago and their photos and conversations about their adventure put Namibia on our bucket list. For a very long time we have wanted specifically to visit Etosha and Chobe. We were finally able to set the wheels in motion for October 2018. Safariwise is a family business run by Berdene in the office and Neil on the road. We contacted Berdene about twelve months in advance to flesh out the details. Nothing is set in stone with Safariwise, and Berdene was able to tailor-make our trip for the desired number of days, both in total for the trip and days at each location. When we arrived in Africa, Neil picked us up and gave us 19 wonderful days travelling through Namibia, Botswana and Zambia. He has a great sense of humour and fantastic knowledge of his environment. We are particularly interested in birds, and naturally everyone wants to see game animals in Africa. Neil was fantastic company for our trip, and added great value with information about many other facets of living in Africa, from plants, reptiles and other lifeforms to the social and political landscape. Some of the lodges that Berdene arranged for us were absolutely out of this world. Neil handled all matters while we were on the road so that we had nothing at all to do except enjoy the ride. We cannot recommend Safariwise highly enough for the way that we were looked after.
