Why cruise lovers should consider a Namibia Safari adventure
The long-standing appeal of booking a cruise holiday is well documented. Most cruise lovers are attracted to the idea of journeying to far-way lands, experiencing fine entertainment and embracing new cultures, all from the comfort of a large and well-furnished vessel.
However, particularly since the start of the pandemic, more and more families, couples, and solo travelers have been looking to inject a little bit more adventure into their well-earned holidays, without wanting to compromise on the convenience, service, or luxury amenities that cruise ship are renowned for.
The good news is that a Namibia safari tour provides adventure, luxury accommodation and first-class service in equal measure, and each year thousands of eager holidaymakers jet off to this incredible Southwest African nation to experience the trip of a lifetime.
A safari trip to Namibia can deliver all the excitement and luxury experiences often associated with a cruise around the Caribbean and then some! From adrenalin-inducing activities to first-class service and support, here’s why we think cruise lovers should consider booking a Namibia safari holiday as their next vacation.
First-Class Personalized Service
Namibia is blessed with a plethora of stunning luxury lodges, all supported by a fantastic team of staff that work around the clock to ensure you receive the very best service. Throughout your trip you will be guided by a professional and helpful local tour expert as well as other staff such as butlers, waiters, camp hosts and chefs who will be on hand to cater to your every whim.
Namibian locals and hospitality workers are renowned for their friendliness, and you will often find that they will go above and beyond to make your trip one to remember. Are you a vegan or vegetarian worried about whether you can be catered for? Fear not; even in the most remote destinations all your dietary needs will be taken care of.
Worried about cleanliness? Don’t sweat it. Whether you’re camping in a tent or staying in an opulent room you’ll receive the same level of incredible service, and you can rest assured your dwellings will be cleaned immaculately each day.
Small Crowds & Plenty of Room
Space and social distancing have become incredibly important in the wake of the pandemic and if you’re looking for a getaway that promises small crowds and fresh, open landscapes then a Namibian safari getaway is definitely for you.
Whether you’re experiencing an enthralling game drive or sitting down for dinner, unlike a busy cruise ship you will not have to worry about encountering scores of other holidaymakers whilst on safari.
For peace of mind, the number of passengers permitted in vehicles for game drives or transfers is limited, and you’ll usually be journeyed around in an open-sided 4x4. If you’re reluctant to share at all you can even book a safe and secure private vehicle for you and your travelling party.
Easy Booking & Convenience
Travelers who love cruises often value the hassle-free and convenient booking process, particularly when organizing a getaway for families or large groups. In most cases it’s as simple as choosing your ship, shaping your itinerary, and selecting your cabin.
