"Join me as we travel back in time to an era that resembles the first pioneers that unraveled the timeless beauty in Namibia!

Enjoy a quality camping experience when ‘roughing-it in style’ as part of a Journey Under Canvas.

This is particularly appealing to those who want to connect with the earth, culture and wildlife in a very up-close and personal manner."
