I am a born and bred Namibian who has spent 25 years in Europe. During my time in Europe, I learnt much about the habits of European travellers and on my holidays, I was able to experience my home country, Namibia, as a tourist. Though I am familiar with the languages and the country, I felt left alone during these visits and so I decided to help other travellers once I returned home. Since returning to Namibia in 2005, I have traveled the country excessively to catch up with every development and I have come to love my home country even more.

As I myself am a huge fan of Namibia, my biggest desire is to introduce Namibia to every traveler in his or her own, personal and unique way. Depending on what you seek, we will always try and fulfill all your wishes to make Namibia your dream destination.

Heike's Travel Expertise

For the past 10 years, I have specialized in self-drive, guided self-drive, guided and fly-in tours, in Namibia and Botswana. South Africa we also offer as a self-drive destination as well as Zambia and parts of Zimbabwe. Victoria Falls are also part of our portfolio. Since I am a passionate camper myself, I also offer camping tours or combined camping and lodge tours.

One thing we don’t do is scheduled bus tours! Of course, I can help you find such tours to join, but here we focus more on unique, personal experiences.

Heike's best travel experience

My loveliest travel experience was a trip to Botswana in February 2018 where I had the opportunity to, for the first time in my life, see a pack of wild dogs in Chobe National Park. It had always been a dream of mine to see these lovely animals and it was fulfilled.

As a company, we have been to many countries in the past years trying to find even more destinations we can add to our portfolio, but none has blown me away like Africa!

Why is Heike the right travel expert

I founded Unique Tours & Safaris in 2008 with a wish to help travelers experience my home through my eyes, and with my passion for the countries. It has always been my first ambition to create a unique travel experience and to infect my guests with the so-called Africa virus that will make a traveler return again and again to explore every corner of Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.

I travel within our specialty countries to inspect the lodges I work with on a regular basis to be sure that the standards are up to what I would expect as a visitor. It is most important for me to know that my guests will be happy with the tour I tailor make for them.
