Is This Trip Right for You?
This is an active trip. Our small group covers a lot of ground each day, and we spend a fair amount of time driving over gravel roads that are rough and bumpy. We have many early wake-ups, and long bus rides are necessary to cover the territory. Game and dune drives will be performed in small 4x4 vehicles that cannot be air conditioned. These vehicles have high ground clearance and require agility to embark and disembark. Only "bush toilets" are available during game drives. Electricity for some properties is provided by generator and may not be available 24 hours a day. Accommodations may require walking outside or traversing stairs between public areas and rooms. Visitors to Namibia are encouraged to consult with their healthcare providers regarding malaria prophylaxis. We suggest you check with your healthcare provider before signing up for this tour. During this tour, you may come into proximity to wild animals, which should be considered at your own risk. This is a Small Group program. For more information, click here.

The Namibia trip was very enjoyable! Lots of beautiful scenery, both inland in the deserts and along the coast. We saw lots of wildlife in Etosha National Park and I took some amazing pictures of both the animals and the desert scenery. All in all, a great trip.Louis C. Phoenix, AZ
Our trip was delightful! Loved every minute of it, Edwardo was a great host. He knew all of the places, and was very helpful and friendly. Loved that he kept us stocked in water ... The places we visited were awesome! We loved Galapagos and the Amazon and the trips inside those places. Also loved the Discovery tour. It was the right size and the hotels were great. We will definitely be taking more Gate 1 Discovery Tours ...Mike and Cheryl C. Lewisville, TX
The trip was magnificent. Easily the most physically demanding trip I have ever taken (jungle treks) ... I am 72 years old and in good health but the porters made the gorilla trek possible! The Ugandan people seem naturally friendly and outgoing. I love them. Morris 1 and Morris 2 are exceptional guides and just great guys. I recommend this trip to anyone and everyone. All of my Gate 1 trips have been super. My wife and I have always been taken care of extremely well. We go with another couple ... A great time for us to get together and have a great time. Thanks Gate 1 for another fantastic adventure.James A. Shreveport, LA
It was wonderful! What a surprise Uganda was. The gorilla tracking was harder than I expected (and I am pretty athletic) but I survived.Ella S. Treasure Island, FL
I loved Namibia! Belinda shared her love for her country. The country is beautiful, new looks around every corner. Keegan our driver handled all the bumps with ease and there were lots of bumps on the roads. I would recommend this trip to anyone who wants to see a beautiful unspoiled country.Susan W. Outlook, WA
Coming to Namibia has been a dream come true, and experiencing the beauty of its landscapes, wildlife, people and culture is all more than I could ever expect. Much thanks to our wonderful guide, David and our driver, Mojari - she was so fantastic, given the challenging roads throughout our trip. We were all so well taken care of every minute along the way. I am grateful for the warm hospitality everywhere we went, the many opportunities to learn about Namibia's history, the tribesmen's way of life, marvel at the stunning sand dunes, watching the gorgeous African sunsets every day...can't wait to share this amazing country with everyone back home!Jingying C. Singapore, SG
Incredible doesn’t begin to describe it! From the moment we were met at the airport until the moment we left it just kept getting better. The accommodations were outstanding. The highlight though of course were the game drives. All of our drivers were so extremely knowledgeable which allowed us to track and see all of the Big 5. Don was our tour manager and he just made everything seem so effortless although I know there was a lot of coordination going on in the background. It won’t be our last visit to Africa or our last trip with Gate 1....thanks for the trip of a lifetime!Margaret M. Ontario, Canada
Our trip was fantastic, everything went smoothly, all of the connections, transfers, etc. were perfect. I cannot say enough positive things about Gate 1 and the travel guides for both tours. We are looking forward to our next tour and will be contacting you sometime early next year.Thomas L. Florence, SC
I have traveled a lot but never with a tour. Our trip to Kenya was spectacular and unlike any place I have ever been. Our guide was Yusuf. We could not have had a better guide ... Yusef is a very special man who made the trip even more amazing. I fell in love with the people and their spirit, the land was so beautiful and wild, and of course the animals were so up close and free. This experience will be the one that will thrill me for a lifetime. The experience could not have been better. Thank you Gate 1 for just the greatest experience. Also thanks to our booking agent Donna for advice on the time of year to make the trip and invaluable tips. And thanks to Yusuf for teaching us the language, educating us on the animals and of Kenya, and for his gracious company and friendship.Nancy H. Lexington, KY
We had such a wonderful experience on the Kenya Tanzania Safari ... Especially I want to extol the wonders and praises of our driver guides ... All the while they are safely and carefully negotiating the rutted roads in the conservation areas and national parks ... noticing all those subtle signs that indicate wildlife that my eyes would never see. They have so much knowledge and understanding of the animals, the vegetation, the ecosystems, the interactions between animals! I especially commend Yusuf in Kenya and Nurdin Mohammed in Tanzania. Not only do they know the biology and zoology, they are completely conscientious about all of us as passengers and clients ... I want to make sure the company understands what treasures the driver/guides are and how important they are to your customers’ feeling of safety and comfort, but also they obviously enjoy the natural environment and the thrill of showing us these wonders of nature in their homeland. And as we drove through the villages and towns they were able to explain much about the local customs and people. This wonderful experience was made even more wonderful because of Yusuf and Nurdin!Janell L. Nashville, TN
Kenya and Zanzibar were spectacular! It was a great way to relax after the many amazing game drives through Kenya. Our guide, Daniel, was friendly, funny and knowledgeable. He explained the culture of Kenyans, the landscape of Kenya along with the habits and habitats of the many animals during the game drives. The itinerary was well planned (time/place), the Land Cruisers were perfect for the drives, the hotels and the "tent hotels" and food was excellent. Zanzibar is an idyllic island with its own history and culture, a learning experience. I would highly recommend this trip, but wait for the direct flights into Nairobi.Constance I. Brooklyn, NY
Hi Caitlin, Our Adventure to Uganda was awesome! Thank you!! We had a great time, everything went really well. Visiting gorillas in the rainforests of Bwindi was of course THE highlight of the trip. We saw chimps as well in their forests and that was thrilling! Our guides Morris and Jonah were exceptional, they took such good care of all of us. Thank you again Gate 1 for an another amazing trip!!! Looking forward to another destination with you guys!!!Larry K. Westmount, QC, CA
Our trip was fantastic - much better than we ever imagined. Our tour manager Belinda was exceptionally informed and accommodating to all of our needs. Can't wait to take off again.Morris S. Bala Cynwyd, PA
We had a terrific trip. Very well organized and paced, which we have come to expect of Gate 1. Botswana, particularly the Okavanga Delta was a real highlight. We may be back for Namibia.Lois Olcott P. Kennett Sq, PA
Outstanding. Very well organized from beginning to end. Excellent accommodations and facilities. Very personable and efficient guides. Very happy with the overall experience.Fred E. Newton, MA
One of the best trips ever!!!!! I am planning on returning with my granddaughter. I want to mention our tour manager Mojo who was always on top of everything. I have only praises regarding this magic adventure, thank you Gate 1!Ana H. Coral Gables, FL
We are back from Namibia. We had a wonderful trip. The accommodation, the food and the itinerary were very good. Above all, our guide, Belinda was great...she was fun, caring and ready to please. She made the long bus journeys fun. Thanks to Gate 1 for the trip.Nina R. Oro Valley, AZ
I can honestly say that Namibia is my all time favorite trip! It was relaxing, exciting, the hotels were all first class...the food was fabulous.. Our driver Keenan was by far the best driver ever...Our guide Belinda was great...very helpful and mindful of all of her travelers! She took us to 2 unplanned options... 1 was live music at the campsite of one of our lodges which was so much fun! The second was in Windhoek on our return to spend time in the craft market and a city tour! If I had 1 complaint it would be that our "box lunches" consisted of way too much food!Linda G. Bloomsburg, PA
