  • Explore a vast wilderness home to Desert elephant, lion and Black rhino
The "Namibia 4WD Desert Safari" trip starts from and ends in Windhoek. It is a wildlife trip that takes 13 days taking you through Twyfelfontein, Windhoek, Palmwag and 5 other destinations in Namibia. "Namibia 4WD Desert Safari" is a guided small group trip that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Namibia’s northwest corner is one of the least populated areas on Earth and one of Southern Africa’s last true wildernesses. Here wildlife outnumbers people and we have the opportunity to look for a large variety of animals including Desert elephants, lions and the world’s largest population of free-ranging Black rhino. This is a trip that rewards a spirit of adventure and the willingness to explore the path less travelled, but the journey is made easier by the use of specially designed 4WD safari vehicles and the relative luxury of full service camping.

Wild Namibia
“Dear Exodus:I have had the most wonderful expedition. Id like to say a few words about the people that made it happen.Firstly I want to thank the support crew. Simson, Umbarra, Fritz, Matthias and Asa. These gentlemen turned camping into an art form. Ive stayed at the best hotels and resorts around the world; this crew is second to none. Their attention to detail and service oriented guest first attitude is superb. They brought such an infectious positivity to the camp that it was impossible not to enjoy yourself. Did I mention the food? Asa catered to our every want and surpassed expectations every single night. This man is a genius on a camp fire. Absolutely remarkable. Hands down the best crew an expedition could want. I could go on and on about these guys. I dont know how much you pay them but they are worth their weight in gold. Thank you to the crew, their efforts ensured this trip was a raucous success.Next Id like to thank Tracks and Trails. I wouldnt dare go into the wildly remote areas we ventured into without a solid plan B. Tracks and Trails seemed to have not only a plan B but a plan C and D for every possible scenario. The vehicles were the best and when the inevitable setbacks that will happen in this rugged environment occurred, they had our back every time. I was very impressed with how quickly they reacted and problem solved. I felt confident knowing I had a team working in the background that could solve any issue at the snap of a finger regardless of the distance, environment and terrain. I felt like nothing could stop us. Very well done Tracks and Trails.PJ. What can I say? The man is as legendary as Tarzan. His positive attitude combined with his no nonsense polite but stern business approach had all of us paying attention to the details that kept us safe. He was the pack leader. I have a great deal of respect for this man. PJs tracking skills were a marvel to behold; When he was tracking the desert lions I felt as if I was in a movie. He found us every animal we dreamed of seeing, then got us a better angle. Pjs knowledge base is ridiculously extensive, Id gamble he knows more about Africa than the Encyclopedia Britnica; history, botany, geology, astronomy, flora and fauna, tribal ancestry.. the only thing he didnt talk about was religion and politics. The only question he couldnt answer was, PJ, is their anything you dont know?. PJ catered to the group and the individual, birds for the birders, terra formations and geological history for the rock hounds, biology for the plant lovers, history for the scholars and everything you could want to know about mammals, reptiles, birds and insects. He even ran around overturning rocks to find us a scorpion when an interest was expressed. PJ is a gem, his leadership and people skills are enviable. When I come back to Africa I will find out what tour he is guiding and do that. I cannot say enough about his skills.Lastly, Id like to thank Exodus. Youve done an amazing job of pairing us with the very best local guides, support staff and logistics professionals. Ive never travelled with Exodus before, Ill never tour with anyone but Exodus from now on. Very well done. Superb.Thank you once again to everyone involved, Im looking forward to my next adventure.Sincerely,Lance Berryman.”

Rhinos and Deserts
“A trip into the deserts of NW Namibia to experience the desert landscapes and wildlife. The emphasis was on desert adapted animals, before moving to the rich wildlife of Etosha later in the holiday. There is a lot of mileage covered, and some long days, but Namibia is a big country. The ability to go off road in a 4WD onto the gravel tracks and dunes when wild camping provided an atmosphere of adventure which you dont get when staying on tarmac roads.”

“When I’m 64 .....”
“What a way to celebrate a birthday! Lunch at Palmwag Lodge then an evening round the campfire and a delicious meal at our remote campsite in the Palmwag Concession. We had looked at this trip in the Exodus brochure for some time and at last got round to booking it - it was brilliant! We have travelled extensively in Africa, but we now feel that we have been thoroughly spoilt by having the opportunity to travel and camp in this remote part of Namibia. Our enthusiastic leader, PJ, and the brilliant camp crew comprising Simson, Fritz and Asser, made this a memorable safari. Namibia, for its combination of desert scenery and wildlife, is unparalleled. It is a barren, beautiful country where, compared with other parts of Africa, wildlife can appear thin on the ground, but PJ, did an excellent job in imparting his knowledge on the flora and geology and increasing our knowledge of what makes this fragile environment so special and what makes it work. This is not a standard big five game-watching safari, but if you want a real safari in awesome scenery with quality sightings, this could be the trip for you.”

An incredible fortnight
“Quite simply this wasnt just the best safari I have been on, it was the best holiday I have ever had - I just wish I had done it sooner! I knew Namibia was special when I realised that even on the long drives I was just gazing out the window enjoying the incredible scenery which is unlike anything else I have experienced during my travels in Africa.The wild camping in the Palmwag Concession and Haonib River Systems was fantastic with us barely seeing another vehicle during the whole time. In Palmwag we were fortunate enough to see numerous black rhino one of which we were able to approach on foot under the careful supervision of our guide, PJ. In Haonib we spent time with the desert elephants and again made an approach on foot. The highlight though was our guides skill and determination in tracking a desert lion for two hours which paid off with a memorable sighting.Etosha was fabulous with plenty of wildlife ranging from the big (elephants and rhino) to the small (honey badgers and a leopard tortoise).Every day we were expertly looked after back at camp by Simpson, Fritz and Asser and kept well fed with fabulous meals.Whether youre thinking of doing your first safari or are an old hand, I cannot recommend this trip enough. Im already planning a return visit to this spectacular country.”
