I really enjoyed the trip.

Norman and Oshili Tours went above and beyond. Great value!

Namibia is a fantastic country with a wonderful mixture of varied wildlife, scenery and culture.

One week wasn’t enough. There’s lots I didn’t get to see so I’ll be back!

Hello from Italy.

I want to thank you and Norman of course, for the beautiful journey we made in your country. That was once in a lifetime experience. So different from Europe. Norman is a perfect driver and a very nice person.

I wish you and your family all the best.

Hi, I just want to say thank you for short organization of our trip. Was amazing and we were very satisfied with Peru. We will definitely recommend Oshili Namibia Tours. Greetings, Sarah

Dear Granville,

Just a quick note to say that we concluded the holiday on a good note and with a better atmospher. Peru was an excellent guide: professional, courteous and able to be simultaneously conversational as well as giving us some privacy. He was far more to the standard and style that I have had to date. (Namibia was my fifth African holiday tour/ safari.)

Thank you for resolving the problems we had. The mark of a good travel company is to be able to resolve problems quickly and efficiently rather than prevent them all together as we all understand that many things do not go to plan.

Best wishes.

 The tour was absolutely fantastic !  The Lodge can do a bit to improve their beds and service – but that is something totally out of your control
Our guide Peter was an absolute superstar !!!  We really enjoyed every day with him.  His timing of game drives and he routes he chose to ensure we see maximum – his handling of his vehicle over difficult terrain – his stories he tells – I can go on and on.  He went out of his way to accommodate my husband who has very limited sight to make sure he experiences what we are seeing.
 If I really must be honest I would have changed NOTHING !!  It was our 1st ever visit to Namibia and it was really worth every penny spent.  We really feel like we got full money worth experience

Once again many thanks for everything


Kind Regards

We really had the trip of a lifetime when we went on Oshili's 12 day 'In and around Namibia Tour'. Naas who took us around was extremely personable and made the trip very enjoyable. There was some flexibility on the itinerary too, plus we were very impressed with the quality of the accommodations we stayed in. We would highly recommend Oshili to operate tours around Namibia. Naas is hugely knowledgeable about his country and is also very passionate about tourism there.

"Africa Safari"

What a grand adventure I had on my Oshili Namibia safari. Our guide, Naas was well organized and informative- he also spoke the language. We saw lions, giraffes, cheetahs, elephants, jackals, zebras and numerous other birds. We had an amazing experience in an authentic African village- where I was made queen for the day. We had the real feel of Africa with the sundown ceremony. It was by far a trip of a lifetime. I would recommend Oshili safari most highly.

Title: The absolute best and most caring tour company in Africa!
Review: Oshili made my Namibian dreams come true. From the very first email, I knew that my trip planning for such a gorgeous country would be in good hands with Granville and Oshili Namibia. I reached out to 5 local Namibian tour companies and not only was Granville the most prompt with every single correspondence, he also provided me with the best prices and was very transparent in how much specific dream activities would cost. He answered every single little question I had with such patience and timeliness. Granville was also very attuned to the needs of my being a photographer and made sure to pair me with a compatible guide.

He went above and beyond by matching me with the incredible guidance of Francis!

Francis proved to be the best guide for taking me through 2 weeks going up and down Namibia. His pride and love for his country was evident in his boundless knowledge in culture, nature, history, and wildlife and gave me a profound sense of appreciation and love for Namibia. I really cannot say enough great things about Francis. He was everything you’d want in a guide and friend - so much patience, understanding, great sense of humor, highly energetic and enthusiastic; a companion you’d want alongside you while witnessing the immense natural and cultural treasures of Namibia. He remembers your goals and dreams for why you’re going on tour and makes every effort to make them come true. Plus, he’s been guiding for over 2 decades and everywhere we went he was greeted like family. At every turn, he made sure that I was experiencing the best his country has to offer.

I would highly, highly recommend booking with Oshili Namibia for your next adventures in Southern Africa! Granville will make sure your hopes and dreams will be realized!

Excellent communication
We had booked as part of the British and Irish Lions tour to South Africa. The booking process and queries we had were handled outstandingly well.
Sadly we had to cancel our tour due to Covid, and asked for a refund, under the circumstances.
Granville was totally understanding and all the money has now been returned. Even without going on their Safari, I know that if I get the opportunity to travel to Namibia again, I will do this safari with this company.

Very professional and very nice tour guide. We met the evening before the trip and nicely got to meet each other and discussed quickly the procedure and the tour's itinerary with lots of room for individual wishes. The 3-days desert trip was overall excellent and our tour guide provided us with everything we needed at anytime. The vehicle was safe and comfortable and the accomodation at Solitaire Guest Farm fantastic. He challenged us to climb up the Big Daddy which was quite an exhausting walk but totally worth it having an incredible view over the entire scenery! During the afternoon activity we then even got to see lots of animals.

Granville was an excellent guide and I would not hesitate doing another trip with him and Oshili Namibia Travel and Tours. He was very attentive to our needs and very knowledgeable. The itinerary took in most of Namibia's highlights while still allowing some flexibility so we were very happy with the whole experience.I feel it was helpful that Granville was from Namibia as the choices in accommodations were superb, as was his knowledge of the area. Other similar tours appear to charge two or three times what we paid,so deleting the middleman really cut costs without compromising the quality.
