          I'm so grateful to Simon and Anton for the most lovely company, expert service, knowledge, top tier hosting and being the best tour guides we could have ever hoped for! It was a very genuine, personal, safe, fun, professional experience and we couldn't have hoped for a better company to take us through this experience! They set the tone for a positive, calm, brilliant time. And the food also was amazing!! I have never eaten so much in my life. Just all around excellent humans and a memory I will take with me always thank you legends. Cant reccomend them highly enough. Just book now you'll be so happy you did :) Xx

          Amazing with a bitter aftertaste
          The 7 day safari gave us a good overview of this amazing country. Stunning sights and super diverse landscape. The lodges we were booked in were always stunning. Chameleon Safaris did an excellent job and the organisation was impecable. Since we wanted to see so much in so little time, there were often long days spending in the bus without much leg stretching or toilet breaks. Next time I would defo opt for a more time, so it would be less of a "run through". Unfortunately we also had some issues with our guide regarding punctuality, keeping the itinerary and some human factors. Maybe it was just not his week. But it does leave a bitter aftertaste. Nevertheless, this country is beautiful and a must visit for sure.

          Thank you Josef!
          Josef made my Namibian experience what it was: spectacularly fun and unforgettable. I felt so taken care of — our great conversations and laughs made the long drives feel short. Usually I’d never hire a guide and would do my own thing, but I can’t imagine doing this without him and his knowledge / passion for his country made the experience so worthwhile. And while there was no guarantee of seeing animals, Josef’s eye for wildlife while we drove around made for an impromptu game drive—we saw giraffes, hyenas, meerkats, ostriches, and much more… all of which I would’ve missed if not for him knowing where to look. Oh and his cooking… I still don’t know what he put on that meat, but I couldn’t get enough of it! Everything was so delicious. I’d highly recommend him as a guide and hope to see him again sooner or sooner, either in Namibia or in the USA!

          世界中からひとり旅を楽しむ仲間たち11人が集まって、まるで夢のような思い出いっぱいの旅になりました。 ガイド・ドライバー・料理人として私たちをサポートしてくれたSimon & Smithley は本当に素晴らしい気配りとキャンプスキルで私たちを存分に楽しませてくれました。 砂漠でこんなにも美味しい食事が出来るなんて驚きでした! 英語があまりできない私でも何一つ不安なく、皆さんと同行できて本当に楽しかったです。 もうアフリカンマッサージが恋しいです! Eleven friends from all over the world who enjoy traveling alone came together for a trip full of memories that was like a dream come true. Simon & Smithley, our guides, drivers, and cooks, were so attentive to our every need, and their camping skills kept us entertained. It was amazing to have such good food in the desert! Even though my English is not very good, I was not worried about anything and I really enjoyed accompanying everyone. I miss African massage already!

          A don’t miss tour when in Windhoek
          I had an amazing afternoon today with Shakka on this tour. I was extremely lucky to be the only one booked on the tour today and Shakka was very attentive and adapted the usual tour to fit my interests, answered all my questions knowledgeably and it was like spending an afternoon with a friend rather than a tour guide. Namibias history is not well known and it’s well worth spending time to understand. The visit to the women’s collective was Al as o a highlight for me. Thank you Shakka for opening my eyes to this amazing country.

          The guide/driver and the chef were excellent, they did their best to welcome me and make the tour amazing, delicious and joyful! Simon and Smithley are very attentive and helpful and provide me any informations before I asked. I felt comfortable during all activities, extra tours, delivering of buggages to the accommodations and shuttle transferring.

          A trip worth doing
          Chameleon tours were pleasant and well organised. Shaka was our guide. He was professional informative and very friendly. He was very respectful and appeared well known and well liked as we interacted with locals around the city. Shaka structured the tour to meet our interests and could answer all our questions about the history and cultural and social dynamics of Windhoek. A tour worth doing particularly if you are lucky enough to have Shaka as your guide.

          Perfect introductory tour to the country of Namibia!
          It was the best and most beautiful tour we (as frequent travelers) have booked so far. Our adult son (26) met us at Chameleon Backpacker during his backpacker vacation. Pick-up from the hotel and briefing on the tour: perfectly organized and above all very human and friendly. The tour itself was indescribable. Kennedy as a guide/ supervisor and friend managed to convey a deep understanding of the country, the nature and the people in addition to the many events (Etosha, visits to various tribes, Swakopmund, Cheeta-Perk etc.). He made our group (26 to 82 years old from 5 nations) grow together in a short time, so that it was very difficult for everyone to say goodbye. In addition to his empathetic nature and his versatile language skills, he was able to impart a lot of knowledge about his country to us in a pleasant way. The tour was perfectly organized, accommodation (lodges) and food (breakfast and dinner) were above average and there was no rush despite the many program points. During this tour, my wife and I fell in love with the country of Namibia and its people. We will certainly be back.

          Unforgettable time
          Just returned from a fantastic 6-day safari in Namibia with Chameleon Safaris, visiting Etosha and Sossusvlei. Our guide, Kennedy, was phenomenal—his deep knowledge and skill at handling the long drives made the trip smooth and really enjoyable. He managed everything perfectly, from the game drives to keeping us on schedule. The whole team at Chameleon Safaris was incredibly organized, making our experience both personal and seamless. If you're heading to Namibia for a safari, I highly recommend booking with them. Kennedy and the crew made sure we had an unforgettable adventure!

          I have been on many tours around the world but this has to be hands down the best experience ever! It was in no small part thanks to our amazing hosts and guides Simon & Smithley! They went above and beyond to ensure everyone was comfortable and noone was left out! I had many interesting discussions with them and truly enjoyed their company! The scenery is also breathtaking and I will never forget this incredible adventure with Chameleon safari!

          Fantastic Tour Guide and Service - Highly Recommend!
          We were lucky to have Gregg lead our group on the 7-Day Namibian Highlights tour. He’s incredibly knowledgeable and created a well-planned experience with clear directions and guidance along the way. He is personable, funny and able to give the perfect insight into the culture and history surrounding all the beauty Namibia has to offer. He was open to discussions and questions, and made sure each individual felt supported throughout the day. Chameleon and our guide took care of every detail. We didn’t have to worry about a thing. I would recommend Chameleon Safaris and Gregg from now until forever. Special thanks to Gregg for managing everything so well and making sure we felt safe and informed at all times. This tour is an experience I’ll never forget.

        I had a great hike with tour guide Raymond at the Horseshoe Hiking Trail at Moonraker Adventure Camp. The weather was warm and comfortable for the morning hike; Raymond picked me up from my hotel right on time, and had a bag of snacks prepared for the hike.
        On the trail he taught me about every animal we came across, and the different types of trees and plants as well; very knowledgeable.

        I would recommend this tour to anyone, and I'd do it again!

        We really enjoyed our time exploring the Daan Viljoen Park in Windhoek. Our guide, Simon, was very informative & did an amazing job showing us around and explaining the history behind the different landmarks. We could see a lot of animals at liberty. Thanks for a fun tour!

        I wanted to do something different from the usual game drives, and this certainly was. The hike was a bit strenuous at times, especially the first half which has some steep rises and later on when it is hotter. However, not an unpleasant walk if you are reasonably fit.
        It is quite hard to see the wildlife though as they can be well camouflaged and, because you are on foot, they hear you before you can get too close. Be very quick with your camera! As a result, much of the wildlife we saw was quite far away or was there but had run off. It is a beautiful setting for a hike though.
        I had Raymond as a guide and he was both knowledgeable and considerate and I felt safe with him all morning.

        The tour with Shaka was really amazing! He was a nice and accommodating guide we had a lot of fun with. We saw more animals than we expected: Giraffes, Zebras, Oryx, Worthog, wild beasts, Ilend impala and baboons.
        We can totally recommend it and would do it again!
        Thank you for the nice trip to the whole chameleon safari team!!!

        This was a 6.5km hike through (at this time of year) dry bush. Our knowledgeable and friendly guide stopped several times to talk about the various plants and animals we saw. We had sightings of warthog, oryx and some other antelope species. Although the walk isn't long, there are some steep, but short, gradients, and a few places where the trail is quite rocky. A decent pair of walking shoes is recommended.

Always nice to keep active whilst on holidays and game viewing on foot can give a real rush even if it's a warthog or oryx.

        Thank you for your favourable review and praise for Raymond. Often when people travel in Namibia there's very little chance to walk in the bushveld, which is a pity as it provides a completely different experience to exploring in a vehicle. I'm always amazed at what I see on daily walks in rural Windhoek.

        I would highly recommend this activity to anyone staying in the Windhoek area. Beene was a friendly and knowledgable guide who provided lots of information on the flora and fauna of the local region. She also has a hawk eye for spotting all of the animals/game! The group size ensures it remains personal with opportunities to ask questions. The duration of the hike and the terrain were pleasant and manageable.

        Would definitely do this again given the opportunity!
