Pleasantly surprised that Chameleon is not just for under 60's, especially if you schedule the right room. The Elephant Room had a private veranda, was on the second floor away from noise, and a decent size w private bath - and so reasonably priced. My...More
Real backpackers hangout. Modest suites and rooms with private bathrooms available. Ground floor rooms a bit noisy when the guest upstairs flushes the toilet. Very basic breakfast but has facilities to cook your own meals. Location is walking distance from crafts market, high street, and...More
We stayed in Chameleon guest house arranged by Chameleon Safaris for our Namibia 7 days private tour. This is a very basic guest house in Windhoek. A curtain separates a small bath stall and slightly smelly toilet. We arrived late at night and could only...More
This lodging option was a good one for our family as it was close in proximity to our rental vehicle drop off and to the center of Windhoek. Our family suite was very clean and comfortable. Visiting with other guests was a highlight too!

I bought at their travel agency 2 day trips in Windhoek. Whole day to Naankuse - 1800 NAD including a wonderful lunch (feed carnivores in the morning and meet the San people in the afternoon). Then afternoon trip to Katutura 300 NAD. Regarding safaris or trips, I booked with Wild Dogs, but I know they have same tours, and more or less same prices. I hope this help.

Namibia is traditionally a tough country to travel independently if you are used to relying on public transport and budget accommodation however with 4 weeks you could probably get around to some of the sights if you are adventurous. However, if you are open to hiring a vehicle and camping, and able to find others to share the experience with then you can certainly control your budget and see most the places that you want to see in a 4 week period. My recommendation would be to send us an email, you can find our email address on our website, with the following information and we can pop that up on our notice board for you and if anyone is going to be around during the same period they can get in touch with you directly;
Destinations you want to visit
Would be worth doing a little research into the different options if you do think that is a good option for you, looking at the costs of cars per day, types of car that you will need for the route you want to do, rough budget of fuel for the route etc, and checking out some of the different campsites or lodges as these can really vary in price.
Alternatively, if you are looking for tours, we can also assist, just let us know and we can point you in the right direction for your time, interests and budget.
