Namibia gay safariExplore the heartland of Namibia, one of the most sparsely populated countries in Africa. Our gay tour of Namibia is a journey through a virtually undiscovered wilderness. We will show you all the wonders that Africa is known for. We’ll hike through deserts, and bike through otherworldly terrains. We’ll sleep under the stars and get up close and personal with the animals. After you see Namibia, Africa will never be the same.

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 Namib 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. For this reason, 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 hotel in Windhoek for the night.

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).

 

Day 2 - Windhoek City Tour and Welcome Dinner
Enjoy your morning relaxing after a long day of travel yesterday. We will meet up in the afternoon for a Windhoek City Tour, followed by our orientation and Welcome Dinner.

 

Day 3 - Game Drive
Namibia gay safari adventure wildlifeThis morning we will enjoy breakfast before departing to our first safari lodge.

Upon arrival, we will get checked in and enjoy lunch together.

Then it’s time for our first game drive into the Kalahari Dunes and a sundowner!

Afterward, we will enjoy dinner in our first lodge of the tour.

 

Day 4 - Onward to the Tok Tokkie Trail
Namibia gay safari - Tok Tokkie TrailAfter a morning bike ride at the lodge, we’ll begin our journey south and west, through the cities of Mariental and Maltahohe to our trailhead.

We’ll arrive in the 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 calls this desert home.

Finally, we’ll dine under the vast expanse of the Namibian night sky tonight. It certainly will be a new experience for most.

 

Day 5 - Awaken with the Namibian Sunrise
Namib Desert gay safari sunrise coffeeWe’ll take a 4-hour hike through the bush this morning before relaxing with a long break in the shade so we can 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 because it is dependent on the area’s characteristic sands.

We’ll continue just 2 more hours to our next camp, which is ready for us to partake in snacks and sundowners before dinner later and 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 6 - The Classic Desert
Namib Desert gay adventureOur 2-hour morning hike this morning concludes at the NADEET Desert Education Station. Here we will be driven over to the reception area where we started this journey.

Enjoy refreshments and a tasty snack before departing in the afternoon to our 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.

We will arrive at our lodge and enjoy the rest of the evening at our leisure.

 

Day 7 - Shifting Red Dunes – Deadvlei
Namibia Deadvlei gay safariThis morning we enjoy a beautiful drive among the highest dunes in the world into the Namib Desert with our experienced guide for an amazing walk on mostly hard compacted sand. Our guide will certainly show us how to walk on sand dunes with the least amount of effort.

We’ll visit Deadvlei, the famous salt pan in the Sossusvlei clay pan. Then a 4×4 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 hence is by arranged pending minimum participation.

 

Day 8 - Holiday on the Shore
Namibia gay tour - ocean coastToday we will head to the coastal town of 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. For that reason, we’ll see many of the cultural influences at work in this urban center.

After a morning of driving, we will enjoy a free afternoon on our own.

 

Day 9 - Day of Leisure
Namibia gay adventure tour - sundownerSwakopmund has so many optional excursions to choose from.

Explore the town on your own, enjoy a day trip into the desert with quad bikes (the local name for ATVs) or enjoy 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. Tonight we will meet up for dinner.

 

Day 10 - Ancient Africa
Namibia gay adventure - BushmenToday we visit Spitzkoppe, an impressive granite mountain formation, to view the ancient rock paintings of the Khoisan (formerly referred to as the Bushmen).

We’ll spend some time hiking and exploring the unique rock formations.

Then we will head to our welcoming wilderness lodge, nestled among amazing rock formations.

 

Day 11 - Southern Etosha Pan
Namibia gay safari elephantToday we will head towards the Southern end of the Etosha Pan.

The surrounding savanna is home to huge herds of mammals and wildlife.

We’ll check into our Safari Lodge and have time to enjoy a relaxing evening, including a dip in one of the three pools.

 

 

Day 12 - East Etosha Pan
Namibia gay safari giraffesOur drive today will be along the southern edge of the Etosha Pan, which should grace us with plenty of animal sightings as we stop at waterholes for wildlife/game viewing.

We will arrive at our lodge for the next two nights.

 

 

Day 13 - Two Game Drives
Namibia gay safari wildlifeThis morning we’ll take a game drive to see animals such as lions, elephant, eland, ostrich, giraffes, black rhinos, springboks, gemsboks, kudu, and many more antelope, as well as plenty of birdlife.

Our afternoon is at leisure before joining up later in the day for an evening game drive.

Once back at the lodge we will gather for a cozy dinner together.

 

Day 14 - Heading South
Namibia gay safari zebraToday we will start our journey south back towards Windhoek.

What if I am traveling alone?
Most of our trips draw more single travelers than couples. When couples do join us, it’s usually because they’re looking forward to interacting with a gay group; if they wanted a holiday by themselves, they wouldn’t have signed up to travel with us. Furthermore, the activities included with our trips serve as natural ice-breakers. Within a day, you’ll be traveling with friends. You don’t need to pay the single supplement if you’re traveling alone. We’ll be happy to match you with a roommate. Pay the single supplement only if you want a bedroom to yourself.

 

What kind of lodging can I expect?
We will spend 14 nights in lovely hotels or luxury tented lodging with private facilities. We will spend 2 nights sleeping under the stars on comfortably appointed cots. Bathroom and shower facilities will be available at our campsites.

 

Do I need any vaccinations or medications?
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) website lists detailed guidelines for travelers to Namibia. Their website advises “Check 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 $7 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: $5 – $6 per guest per day.
National Guide: $8 – $10 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.
