Accommodation options in Namibia

Whether you choose to travel 'on' or 'off' the beaten track, do a self-drive safari or be guided, there is accommodation to suit all. From luxury lodges to fully-serviced mobile camps, from bed and breakfast accommodation to self-catering campsites, Namibia welcomes the traveller with a sense of adventure.

At Outposts Travel Africa we know many of the lodge and accommodation owners personally and we entrust them with providing our guests with a wonderful, memorable African holiday experience.

You can also trust us to recommend both the type of accommodation that we think is best suited to you and your itinerary and also which offers the best value for money and quality of experience for your budget.

Lodges and Tented Camps

These camps enable a heavenly glimpse into spectacularly beautiful areas of Namibia and can often only be reached by light aircraft. If you are looking for a luxury safari where you can combine the best wilderness areas with very comfortable accommodation, excellent food and wine and experienced guides, there are some great choices.

As in many countries in Africa these top-end camps and lodges are built with imagination using natural local building materials and art in order to blend in and harmonise with the environment; encouraging the animals to walk surprisingly close when all is quiet.

Hotels, B&B's and Guesthouses

Hotels in Namibia are very well regulated and every medium-sized town will have at least one small hotel. This is often the only bar and restaurant in town too! Usually family-run, they offer clean, basic rooms at sensible prices. In the bigger towns like Windhoek and Swakopmund there is a much greater choice.

Bed & Breakfast accommodation is comfortable with en-suite rooms and friendly, welcoming owners. Many B & B's will have a small swimming pool and you get a great big breakfast! Dinner can often be arranged with prior notice.

Travel Africa's DD Kingscote says: "I love B & B's and always recommend them as the best way of getting a true feel of a country and to meet the locals."

Guest Houses are creeping in, some are more upmarket - like boutique hotels; all are a real treat. Namibia also offers lots of Guest Farms and like B & B’s they are a great way of meeting the locals, getting a true feel for the country and its wide open spaces. Often they offer excellent hiking; sometimes horse riding and many farms have wild plains game living on their land.

Self-catering Campsites

There are 23 declared game reserves and parks in Namibia managed by Namibia Wildlife Resorts. Most of these parks have some kind of self-catering accommodation or well serviced campsites which are brilliant for a guided tented safari exploration for all the family.

With so much choice and variety it really is important that you receive the right advice and guidance about your holiday accommodation. So, contact us today to start planning your unforgettable African adventure!
