About Namvic

Namvic Tours & Safaris is composed of a small team of passionate Namibians who are excited about welcoming you to this beautiful area of the world.

With Namvic, you are not just a reservation number, you are a client and future guest to our scenic country. We know that travelling through an African country can seem daunting so we make sure that we do everything to make your trip as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. This means not only giving you a good quality car with all the security features that you need but also sharing with you all our tips and tricks on what to do, where to go and who to see. Throughout your travels we will always be available to help you and we always encourage our guests to get in touch with us at any time for help. Even just knowing this means you can travel serenely.

We like to be original and provide our clients will a real African adventure. This is why we specialize in itineraries off the beaten track, both camping and in 5* luxury. Our favorite activity is taking our guests luxury wild camping in rugged Damaraland, a way of showing off the best of Namibia that is rarely seen.

When you book with us, you also travel and explore with us. We care about you, our country and our environment. That is why Namvic donates to TOSCO (Tourism Supporting Conservation) and participates in saving our rhinos. By travelling with us you also have a positive impact on the places you will visit and the animals you will have the honour of seeing.
