We invite you to join our friendly gay group to explore the diversity of Namibia. Because of its sparse population, Namibia has a richer variety of wildlife than many of its neighbors. During this tour we will stay in 6 different habitats in which to observe the animals, even camping for two nights for an unforgettable experience. From some of the highest sand dunes in the world in the Kalahari Desert, to the rugged Atlantic coastline, to the wide savanna, this gay safari tour will take us on a scenic exploration of this remote country in Africa. We will create a once-in-a-lifetime journey.

Namibia Gay African Adventure Tour Itinerary

Day 1 - Welcome to Windhoek!
Namibia gay tour - WindhoekWe will be transferred from the airport to our cozy lodge less than an hour southeast of the city. The hotel is a spot of lush greenery in the red sand desert, the perfect place to end our day of travel. For our guests who arrive early in the day, there may be time for a game drive before dinner. Because many flights arrive later this evening, no group activities are scheduled but if you wish to arrive a day early we can book an additional hotel night for you (subject to availability).

We will enjoy our Welcome Dinner this evening. Then rest and relax...your wake-up call has been scheduled for the morning.

 

Day 2 - Onward to the Tok Tokkie Trail
Namibia gay safari - campfireAfter an early morning game drive (with luck we may spot cheetah or leopards), we値l begin our journey south and west, through the cities of Mariental and Maltahohe to our trailhead.

We値l arrive in the early afternoon and stretch our legs with a hike to our first camp. Trained local guides will teach us to spot the wide variety of wildlife that call this desert home. We値l dine under the vast expanse of the Namibian night sky.

 

Day 3 - Awaken with the Namibian Sunrise
Namibia gay safari - Tok Tokkie TrailWe値l take a 4-hour hike through the bush this morning before relaxing with a long break in the shade to enjoy lunch. Desert-adapted wildlife, such as ostrich, springbok, and gemsbok sparsely populate the region. The aptly named dune lark is a species of bird that only makes its home here due to its dependence on the area痴 characteristic sands.

We値l continue just 2 more hours to our next camp, which is ready for us to partake in snacks and sundowners before sleeping under the stars again tonight. Creatures such as bat-eared fox and aardwolf may be spotted at night in the cool desert air.

 

Day 4 - The Classic Desert
Namib Desert gay safariOur 3-hour morning hike concludes at the lodge, where we値l have a delicious lunch.

This afternoon we transfer to our exotic and luxurious accommodations in the Namib Desert, the oldest desert in the world. The Desert is part of the Namib Naukluft National Park that stretches 250 miles south of Walvis Bay between the west coast and the escarpment that runs parallel more than 70 miles inland. Its huge dunes and flat valley floors create the archetypal view of the Namib.

 

Day 5 - Shifting Red Dunes
Namibia Dunes gay adventureThis morning we enjoy a beautiful sunrise bicycle ride among the highest dunes in the world (with our van available for non-cyclists).

A bit later we値l set off into the Namib Desert with our experienced guide for an amazing walk on mostly hard compacted sand our guide will show us how to walk on sand dunes with the least effort. We値l visit Big Mama, a huge sand dune overlooking the Sossusvlei clay pan. A 4ラ4 shuttle will take us back to the tour vehicle just in time for lunch at the lodge.

The afternoon is free to relax, with some guests choosing to take an optional late afternoon small airplane tour all the way to the Atlantic Ocean at just 500 ft (150 m) above the ground. This special hour-long flight takes us to the Forbidden Coast, over undulating dunes and canyons, and is by arrangement pending minimum participation.

 

Day 6 - Kuiseb Canyon and Holiday on the Shore
Namibia gay adventure tour - Kuiseb CanyonAfter an exquisite hike or bike ride through Kuiseb Canyon, we値l head to Swakopmund, a German colonial town situated on the Atlantic Ocean.

Namibia was under German, South African and United Nations control for most of the 20th Century, but has been stable and independent since 1990. We値l see many of the cultural influences at work in this urban center.

 

Day 7 - Day of Leisure
Namibia gay tour - sundownerSwakopmund has so many optional excursions to choose from, such as a flight along the Skeleton Coast and farther to the Himba people, or a jaunt into the moon landscape where you can see ancient rocks over a billion years old and the largest desert plants.

You may also enjoy a day trip into the desert with quad bikes (the local name for ATVs) or a boat trip departing from neighboring Walvis Bay to see marine species such as pelicans, flamingos, cape fur seals and Southern Right Whales.

Our guide will help make arrangements for you today if you would like, or you may prefer to rest and relax after a very busy week of hiking and biking.

 

Day 8 - Ancient Africa
Namibia gay adventure tour - exotic treeToday we visit Spitzkoppe, an impressive granite mountain formation, to view the ancient rock paintings of the Khoisan (formerly referred to as the Bushmen).

We値l cycle and hike here and then head to our welcoming wilderness lodge, nestled among amazing rock formations.

What if I am traveling alone?
Most of our trips draw more single travelers than couples. When couples do join us, it痴 usually because they池e looking forward to interacting with a gay group; if they wanted a holiday by themselves, they wouldn稚 have signed up to travel with us. Furthermore, the activities included with our trips serve as natural ice-breakers. Within a day, you値l be traveling with friends. You don稚 need to pay the single supplement if you池e traveling alone. We値l be happy to match you with a roommate. Pay the single supplement only if you want a bedroom to yourself.

Do I need any vaccinations or medications?
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) website lists detailed guidelines for travelers to Namibia. Their website advises 鼎heck the vaccines and medicines list and visit your doctor (ideally, 4-6 weeks) before your trip to get vaccines or medicines you may need.

 

Are there any guidelines for tipping in Namibia?
HE Travel Tour Director: Tipping your HE Travel tour director is at your discretion. Rest assured that he or she works hard behind the scenes to ensure that your vacation is a wonderful, adventurous, once-in-a-lifetime experience. Your HE Travel host is there to deal with any snags or hiccups so that you can enjoy your well-earned holiday. We suggest $5 to $10 per traveler per day depending on the level of service you receive.
Local Guides: $2 $3 per guest per day
Hiking/Camping Crew: $4 $5 per guest per day.
Restaurants: The customary tipping for waitstaff is 10-15% of the total. When dining independently, you can use that guideline. For included meals we share together, your HE Travel host will take care of the bill and tips, unless stated otherwise before the meal.
