I had been dreaming about Namibia for 2 long years before I finally traveled there in October 2012. It has been now more than 9 months and I still have sparkles in my eyes!
I had anticipated it, dreamed it, bothered people with it and this country has not disappointed me. It has all that I love:
- Amazing colorful sceneries
- Wild animals that you can observe very well because there is not much vegetation
- Vast areas without a soul
- And not many tourists
The first chance I had to get 2 & 1/2 weeks off work, I looked for an organized small group tour of 2 weeks in Namibia and I found Wild Dog Safaris. They run several safaris which can be booked back to back. So I chose the 14 day Namibian experience which starts from Windhoek and includes the 7 day South tour and the 7 day North tour. And bonus, the tours are camping trips! Building the tent every night and packing every morning. Yeah! As a nature lover, camping is for me the best way to travel. (see the detailed review of my tour)
Although the very first animal I saw while getting to my hotel was a cow, the trip was a real success with great organization, interesting people and constant amazement! I am really excited to start sharing all my stories about it with you.
And I got a lot more than I expected:
Here are few photos to give you a taste of what there is to come:

Love the picture of the hungry leopard! Phenomenal! If you have any thoughts on Wild Dog Safari’s you’d like to share, I would love to hear them. I’m considering travelling with them in a few months.
Thanks, and keep writing!
Thanks for your comment Lena. This is one of my favorite picture. I will tell you all about this experience in a future post. Just for info it was at the very beginning of the second week of my trip, to North Namibia.
To answer your request, I’ve just wrote a post with a review of my trip with Wild Dog Safari: https://www.zigzagonearth.com/detailed-review-of-2-week-namibian-experience-with-wild-dog-safari/
