Fabulous, first-class experience at reasonable price
This tour exceeded my expectations at a very competitive price point. Office communication was excellent (Elsie and Chantelle), tents were in great shape, everything unfolded on time. No doubt though that the fantastic skills and warm kindness of Jason and Steve made the experience. Jason could spy an animal in the grass like his eyes are binos, he's all over organization, and he's a superb driver. Steve helped on all points, but best of all kept us exceedingly well fed. Can't say enough about this team. Thank you for making my short tour richly rewarding, making the absolute most of the time I had.

Incredible Experience—WDS is the Best!
Apr 2019 • Friends
I am presently in Windhoek—my first trip to Africa—and my friends and I are freshly back from the Etosha. I reached out to Wild Dog Safari, after finding them on the internet, and an on-line inquiry led to a delightful and professional series with exchanges with Chantelle about options. Because of some travel constraints on our end, none of the standard offerings would fit our schedule. So, they adapted a group safari to a three-day private one tailored to our needs.

Our safari was flawless. Orlando, our guide, was highly knowledgeable about the Etosha and the wildlife and culture of the area. He was kind, careful, highly ethical about conservation viewing, and very personable. We could not have had a better guide or experience. We saw three of the Big 5 in one day — rhinos, elephants, and lions plus the full array of other species. The evening accommodations were so comfortable and welcoming to boot!

I would not hesitate to book again with Wild Dog Safaris!!

Great trip, great people
Oct 2018 • Couples
We joined the three day Etosha camping tour and from the first moment when we were picked up at our accommodation, until we returned three days later, er had a great time. Our guide, Sam, and our cook, Franz, were lovely people, who put us at our ease instantly and we got to know everyone on the trip quickly. It's an all-hands-on-deck experience, helping with food prep and clearing, as well as putting up and striking tents, but that all adds to the fun. Early mornings meant we were ready for our bags at night, but there were plenty of opportunities to see an absolute abundance of wildlife, both at the waterholes and in the wild. So pleased we did this. Thanks Wild Dog, Sam and Franz

Fantastic 3-day accommodated tour to Etosha
Aug 2018 • Solo
I was meeting friends in Windhoek for a photographic tour of the desert area of Namibia, but wanted to see wildlife as well, so I booked the Wed-Fri accommodated tour with Wild Dog Safaris. Although I was expecting up to 7 other people, we were just two ladies and a fantastic guide, Raymond, who was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and personable. He adapted the trip to suit the two of us, made sure we saw an amazing array of wildlife, including harder to find cheetah, mongoose, hyena, jackels, white rhino and much more, as well as being able to identify every bird we spotted, allowing me to get fantastic photographs. The accommodation in one of the NWR lodges and in an expecially nice lodge just outside the eastern gate was excellent, the food very good, the wildlife incredible and Raymond a good Namibian ambassador, helping us to gain some understainding of the country and its culture.

Exciting trip, but be careful what you are booking.
Aug 2018 • Couples
I want to make it clear that this is NOT a negative review of our 3-Day Etosha camping tour with Wind Dog Safaris. It was an exciting trip, one that I will cherish forever. However, it is very important that if you take this tour that you are aware exactly what you are getting. I have to say that Wild Dogs website, while not inaccurate, leaves a lot of things unclear or unstated. Their website is a lot slicker and more organized then the actual tour.

Most things about the tour were as described. The tents provided were well designed, large canvas tents. The ones we had seemed fairly new. Although the tents were fine, I would not call this "glamping", a term used to describe more upscale camping accommodations in Africa. You were sleeping on the ground on a foam pad. Apparently, we could have arranged for cots as well, but that option was not made clear at the time of the booking. To be honest, I just assumed that cots would be provided. They were not.

Our driver and cook were very friendly and competent. The WD website states "Limited participation camping is assisted camping with the participation limited to only helping with the tent. No help needed with any food preparation or other camp duties. You can just sit back, relax and let us take care of you." While probably technically correct, the reality of group camping is that everyone eventually gets involved in the setting up of the chairs, tables food, etc. This was not an undue burden, but we seldom just sat back and waited for the staff to take care of us.

The two camping locations had more then adequate facilities with showers, toilets and a store. Our meals, were simple but adequate. The braai the last night was very good.

Be sure of the size of your group. We were a party of two and were incorporated into a larger group of 14. The vehicle used was a Toyota Dyna 14 seater. It did have a "pop up" roof for animal viewing, but it was awkward to use as you had to stand on the seats to get up high enough to see out. Some of the seats had not access to the pop top. Few people made use of the pop up top during the safaris. It did have large windows, but the views varied a lot depending on the location of your seat. We did appreciate the enclosed vehicle, as opposed to the open safari vehicles, because of all of the dust. The vehicle was well suited for highway driving. If the vehicle had air conditioning, they did not use it. It would have helped at points in the trip.

Wild Dog Safaris seems a large company with a nice array of wonderful tours available. I was disappointed with their lack of attention to detail, however. There was some confusion during our first stop to purchase supplies for the trip. Apparently there was a payment issue and our trip was delayed for a while before this was cleared up. Little things, low cost items for the company, would have made the experience much better. For example, providing water, at least initially would have been nice as would a map showing the route we were traveling. Although there was power plug aboard the vehicle, it would have been convenient if adaptor plugs or USB ports would have been available. The driver's narrative was limited. The information provided was interesting, but the driver was not very engaged with the group while we were traveling.

All that said, the viewing the animals at the water holes was spectacular. All that I had hoped for. Etosha is a wonderful location. One that should not be missed.

FANTASTIC COMPANY
Jun 2018 • Friends
this company was amazing. The guides (Marcus and Matthew) were fantastic! Patient, knowledgeable, personable, and helpful! Etosha was the best thing I've ever seen, and Marcus was excellent at spotting animals and stopping for us to admire them. I usually get nauseous on buses and expected to on this tour, but I was totally fine! The vehicles are comfortable and the driving was excellent.
We also did the Soussevlei trip, which was really neat.

Etosha is an amazing must see destination
May 2018 • Solo
Etosha is next level. I got to see every African animal i could have dreamed of seeing. Our tour guides were T and Manfred and they were very friendly and helpful. They worked so hard to try and find Lions and through their efforts and a bit of luck, we succeeded. The lit up watering hole was the coolest thing ever, and I stayed up to watch rhinos wrestling in the water. The watering hole is 24/7 and that is a nice feature if you can't get enough of the wild life show. The camps were in great condition and everything went very well. The meals were great and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Wild Dog Safaris was also a great organization to work with and emailed back in response to all my questions very quickly. I could not have asked for a better trip to Etosha, thank you so much.

Amazing Camping Safari in Etosha!
Dec 2017 • Solo
I went on the 3 day camping safari to Etosha National Park from Windhoek in December 2017. The trip was amazing and I definitely recommend Wild Dog Safaris to anyone visiting Namibia! The service was great, staff picked me up from my lodging in Windhoek and brought me to meet my excursion group at the Windhoek offices. From there we headed to Okahandja to get groceries before heading further north into Etosha National Park. The campgrounds at Etosha where we stayed (Okaukuejo and Namutoni) were amazing. I particularly loved Okaukuejo with it's flood-lit watering hole where I stayed up nearly the entire night with a front-row seat to watching elephants, rhino, giraffes, hyena, and an entire pride of lions drink from waters. Namutoni was also great and houses a historic fort inside of the campgrounds. Our guide and support staff were also both fantastic at informing us about the wildlife and history of the region! The meals cooked were quite good and the tents were large 4-person tents which had 2 people each assigned to them. Do note that the camping option is true camping, you will be responsible for pitching a tent (equipment is included and assistance provided if needed!) and for helping with cleaning and packing up after meals. The communal aspect of the trip and the amazing campgrounds definitely made this an extraordinary experience. Oh, and how could I forget the incredible park itself. Etosha is truly an amazing park possessing an array of desert and grassland-type landscapes abound with wildlife. Some highlights for us were a sleeping leopard less than 2 meters away form our vehicle, rhino sleeping next to the watering hole by our campsite, numerous lions, two fighting giraffe, and a herd of elephants with newborns.
