NEW! Tribes Travel launches Namibia

15 Nov 2016 - Multi-award winning Tribes Travel has just launched Namibia as its latest destination. Find out why the country now offers one of the most cost-effective yet comprehensive Africa experiences.

Tribes Travel, the multi-award winning, 18-year old UK tour operator specialising in nature, wildlife and culture has just launched Namibia, the latest destination in its comprehensive Africa programme.

“Given that the rand is at an all-time low, Namibia offers travellers one of the most cost-effective yet comprehensive ‘Africa’ experience, in terms of wildlife viewing and culture,” says Amanda Marks, Tribes co-founder.

“Whilst we’ve included some luxury and quirky accommodation options in riverside, mountain and National Park locations, those wanting to keep costs low can also opt to self-drive.”

As always with Tribes trips, the itineraries include opportunities to help contribute to ongoing conservation and sustainability projects, particularly apt given that 2017 is the International year of sustainable tourism for development.
