The expedition is set to take place in October 2024 and will last for two and a half weeks, with a significant portion of the time spent in the Nyae Nyae Conservancy of Northeast Namibia, deep in the remotest part of the Kalahari.

Below you will find information on costs, dates, a sample itinerary and FAQ's but please get in contact if you have further questions.

Sample Itinerary 

Namibia is a huge country and in order to have the opportunity to feel the true wilderness of the Nyae Nyae and meet this unique group of bushmen, as well as experience the majesty of African animals up close, we need to cover fairly large distances.  We will limit driving time as much as possible to make it as comfortable as possible.  This means that we take a couple of days to arrive at our destinations, which happily also gives us the chance to acclimatise and decompress.

  • Do I need to be physically fit?
    • Given the nature of our expeditions, participants should have a good level of general physical fitness to fully enjoy and participate in the activities. They should feel comfortable with moderate physical exertion, walking in various terrains, and being outdoors for extended periods.


  • Do I need any special equipment?
    • Regular camping and hiking gear is needed, but nothing out of the ordinary.  A full kit list will be supplied once you are confirmed on the trip.

  • Are flights included?
    • Flights are not included in the cost of the expedition and participants will need to arrange their own travel to and from Namibia.

  • What else might I need to know?

    • Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) + 1 Hour Namibia is only one hour ahead of the UK, so jetlag is not a problem.
