This is an easy walking holiday, (graded 1) and whilst reasonably fitness is recommended, the walks are not strenuous. There are seven days with hikes ranging from two to four hours.
Namibia is mostly desert and maximum temperatures can be as low as 20°C in winter (Jun-Aug) but can rise to the low 30s°C during the summer (Nov-Jan).
Namibia is a large country (1.5 times the size of the UK) and there can be some longish drives (up to about 7hrs) though most are moderate (about 5hrs).
Some of the main roads are tarred but most roads are good compact gravel roads. This does mean that some of the drives can, especially after the rains, be slightly bumpy. That said, the changing scenery often distracts from any discomfort from driving on dirt roads. The vehicles used are specially designed vehicles and have roofs which open when on game drives. Accommodation is mostly full service camping in camp sites with shared ablution blocks. We also have 3 nights in lodges.
Normal group size and age
Normally 5 to 12, plus leader and appropriate local staff. Minimum age 16.
The vast majority of Exodus adventures are adult group holidays. Groups are always small in size. We strongly believe that this adherence to small groups means a better experience for all; more time with your guide, less waiting around and a reduced impact on the communities and environments visited.
Each group is generally made up of like-minded travellers - with singles, couples and friends all joining in together. All these trips are suitable for single travellers, but if you prefer to travel with clients booking individually, please see our Solo Departures page.
Experience is not necessary; anyone fit and healthy enough to complete a weekend walk can manage a Leisurely, A-grade departure.
Exodus is always looking to improve our current itineraries and to offer something different. With many new trips this year, there is something unique and different to try every year.
