Is this trip for me?

This Namibia trip is for people who love long journeys, who are adventurous and flexible. It is an "overland" trip and as such we will spend a lot of time on the roads and tracks of Namibia. If you have a fascination with African landscapes and their wildlife, then this could very well be the trip of a lifetime.

Who will guide this trip?

This trip will have two local and English-speaking guides. A driver guide and an assistant guide.

What kind of accommodation do I stay in during this trip?

We will stay in hotels and lodges.

What kind of transportation do we use on this trip?

We will use a truck equipped with all the equipment that gives us enough autonomy to face the African roads safely. There will be some routes where we can use smaller vehicles with four-wheel drive for visits inside some national parks.

Are arrival and departure transfers included?

Yes. They are included if they are made within the program dates. If you decide to go earlier or extend your trip, consult us.

Does Papa-Léguas handle the flights?

If you request a flight proposal, Papa-Léguas sends you one. After you receive it, you can choose to buy from Papa-Léguas, another agency or online.

Where do I meet the group?

In Windhoek, on the first night of the trip.

If I sign up alone, do I have to pay an individual supplement?

Not necessarily. If you do not wish to stay alone in the accommodations, you can share them with another participant. Papa-Léguas may group travelers who sign up individually for the same trip in pairs, by sex and chronological order of registration, and if the number of participants is odd, the traveler who stays alone must pay the respective individual supplement.

Can I drink tap water in Namibia?

No. We don't advise you to do so. Take your own filter or fill your canteen at places that the guides tell you are safe. You can always buy bottled water.

How much money should I bring for my personal expenses?

For basic expenses, such as meals not included in the program, about 250 euros will be enough. However, if you want to buy souvenirs or handicrafts with some quality you should have your bank card with you.

Is insurance included in the land program?

Yes, it is included. The exception is for travelers not departing from national soil, whether or not they hold Portuguese nationality. The included insurance does not cover COVID-19, but you can trigger an optional insurance policy suggested by Papa-Léguas that does cover COVID-19. For more information regarding available insurance policies, see our page about travel insurance.

What documentation do I need to go on this trip?

The necessary documentation may vary, depending on your nationality, the country of origin and the places you will travel to. For further information, consult the relevant embassy websites or contact Papa-Léguas. If by chance you are already traveling in Africa prior to joining this trip, you may be asked for a certification of vaccination against yellow fever.

What equipment is essential for this trip?

Comfortable clothing is the quickest answer. Apart from the obvious, you should take hiking shoes, a bathing suit, towel, head flashlight, etc. all packed in a backpack or duffel bag. Rigid suitcases are not suitable. When you sign up you will receive a detailed list of the equipment needed.

What are the health restrictions for entering the country?

Health restrictions may vary, depending on various factors, such as your country of origin. We recommend scheduling a Travel Medicine consultation before your trip. For further information, consult the websites of relevant agencies or contact Papa-Léguas.

Why is this trip "CLASSIC"?

These are the trips that balance the comfort our travelers are accustomed to with memorable experiences in every corner of the world. Whether it's a cultural discovery trip in Japan, accompanied by a Papa-Léguas travel leader, or a trekking adventure in Slovenia with local guides, our CLASSIC trips offer the best of both worlds - the spirit of discovery and adventure, along with a comfortable bed at the end of the day.
