Self-drive tour of Namibia Romy organised a fantastic 14-day self-drive tour for us, covering most of fabulous Namibia. The tour included car-hire, campsites and several activities along the way. Everything worked perfectly and the campsites were out of this world. We would never have managed to find them researching the tour ourselves. The different sites were also incredible as was the driving going from one changing landscape to another! Romy helped us prepare the trip, answering all our questions and giving advice. She also helped us along the way whenever we needed anything. Many thanks for organising such a fantastic trip!

Namibia / Botswana Rundreise September 2021 Herzliches Dankeschön an Okutembuka Safari und Rolf Tonnemacher, unserem Reiseleiter! Wir durften nun schon die 3. Tour mit ihm machen!!! Sein Wissen über sein Heimatland, seine Bewohner, über die Tiere und die Botanik hat uns schon bei der 1. Tour sehr beeindruckt! Okutembuka Safaris wählt immer sehr ausgefallenen und meistens vom Massentourismus entfernte Lodges. Auch dieses Jahr haben wir viele tolle Orte gesehen, sind wieder voll auf unsere Kosten, was die Tierwelt anbelangt, gekommen und haben überall sehr fein gegessen. Wir können Okutembuka Safaris auf jeden Fall wärmstens weiterempfehlen: als geführte Tour oder Selbstfahrer!

FULLY GUIDED SAFARI WITH OKUTEMBUKA SAFARIS FULLY GUIDED SAFARI WITH OKUTEMBUKA 801316338 Hello, dear travelers, I’d like to share with you my extraordinary travel experience in Namibia with Okutembuka Safaris. Surfing the Internet, looking for the best itinerary Joan and I found out the website of Okutembuka Safaris. Despite of the website has a plenty of ready-to-go trips over Namibia we have chosen our own route, created according to all our preferences. Our priorities were visiting the bushmen, the Dunes, Swakompund and Cape cross with a seal colony, Damaraland with visiting Himba tribe, Etosha National park. We chose ourselves some of the hotels and lodges, but the major part were the lodges that Okutembuka safaris recommended us. When we visited them, we were astonished by the hospitality and the high level of service at the lodges. Romy added some more nearby sights to our trip. With the great cooperation of Romy and her briefing on the current situation in the country during the COVID-19, we booked a 3 weeks Fully Guided Safari, which started in Windhoek on the 11 of June 2021. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU TO GO ON A FULLY GUIDED SAFARI, cause if you do self-driving safari, you can be faced with some unpleasant situations that aren’t easy to cope with. During our 21 day trip we punctured the tyre of the car twice cause most of the driving was off-road, our guide Rudolf took care of this issue. Later in Etosha National park during safari which was arranged by the lodge we stayed at, Rudolf noticed that the elephant, we had been looking at, was about to attack us and told a driver to start the car. Many thanks to our guide Rudolf, that we escaped from the furious elephant and avoided being smashed. I’d like to admit that Joan and I were extremely lucky being guided by Rudolf, cause his responsibility and experience in Namibian wild life and nature won us an incredibly unique and educational trip over the country. Rudolf’s knowledge and sense of humour brought us a lot of bright moments. Our guide spoke both Afrikaans and German languages, that made our life in Namibia much easier. Rudolf found for us the best local guides to visit the bushmen village and the bushman paintings, we enjoyed a lot. Traveling with Rudolf felt like to travel with the family. Okutembuka Safaris, thank you for all the unforgettable experiences and souvenirs. Kate and Joan

Self Drive Safari Namibia Wir haben auf Empfehlung unseres Freundes unsere Namibia Reise über Romy gebucht. Die Zusammenarbeit war von Anfang an sehr unkompliziert und Romy hat uns eine tolle Route entsprechend unseren Wünschen geplant. Auch Änderungswünsche wurden sofort umgesetzt. Romy war während unserer Reise jederzeit zu erreichen, falls wir Hilfe benötigten. Wir haben uns rundum wohl gefühlt. Wir werden auf jeden Fall wieder über Okutembuka Safaris buchen. 😊

A great agent makes my dream tour Romy is my travel agent. We've been discussed itinerary via emails for 2 weeks or even more to the final version. The reason I chose Okutembuka Safaris is that Romy is the only agent planned the fly-in safari within Namibia and the overnight hotel at Windhoek he planned at a lodge with game drive instead of normal standard hotel. Turns out, It’s a perfect tour! Each hotel/ lodge Romy booked for me is perfect. In Namibia, 1)In Swakopmund, Hansa’s suite is large, really comfortable. Location is perfect, close to a Chinese restaurant and a Sushi bar. 2) In sossusvlei, Kulala has nice service and room. View is unforgettable. 3) Overnight at Windhoek, Na’an lodge, the sunset game drive arranged for me, it’s the best part of the tour. The best sunset I had ever seen. In Victoria Falls, Safari Lodge is really nice. Seeing a lot animals while sitting there. They have a free shuttle bus every hour to town. In Botswana, 1) Pangolin Chobe lodge. I’d like to say, recommend to other travelers! They have photo safari, which mean a real photographer with be the guide with you on each activities, teach how to take great photos, while providing cameras and lens! 2) In delta, Mma Dinare. MMA Dinare is amazing! We’ve hear Lion’s roaring and see her walk by at dinner time. MMA Dinare has large room and nice food, which is a plus for me. Recommendation!

Rundreise südliches Namibia und Abstecher ins südafrikanische Nordkap AUGUST!!! 2017 August 2017 (im Review ist leider nur noch die Dezemberangabe möglich) hatten wir uns für ein sogenanntes „Guided Tour Package“ entschieden, da wir mal nicht tausende Kilometer selber fahren wollten. Okutembuka hatte eine Tour im südlichen Namibia im Programm, die wir mit Rolf Tonnemacher in erweiterter Form erleben durften:Windhoek - Kalahari - Kgalagadi Transfrontier NP - SA Augrabies Falls und Namaqualand - Vis Rivier NationalPark (Westseite, mit Fahrt runter zum Fluß) - Lüderitz - Kolmanskop - Keetmanshoop - Kalahari - Windhoek. Und dazu Rolfs umfangreiches Wissen über Tiere, Pflanzen, Landschaft und Geschichte, eingepackt in 3 unvergleichlich erlebnisreiche und bestens organisierte Wochen. Neu für uns: afrikanische Wildkatze, Eule, Erdferkel und Erdwolf; zudem viele blühende oder seltene Pflanzen, die man nicht alle aufzählen kann und die wir alleine auch nicht gefunden hätten, und besonders auch die Spuren der Deutschen aus der Kolonialzeit. Wir können eine solche Tour nur wärmstens empfehlen, uns hat sie ausgezeichnet gefallen.
