Namibia is home to some of Africa’s most beautiful landscapes, from the rolling sand dunes of the Namib Desert to the Naukluft Mountain Zebra Park — the stomping ground of a rare breeding population of Hartmann’s mountain zebra. The Namibian-based tour and safari operator African Profile Safaris focuses on tailor-made, self-drive tours, family safaris and fly-in safaris, with an emphasis on conservation.

Although focused mainly on Namibia, the company also offers tours in Botswana, Egypt, Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Rwanda, South Africa, Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Experiences and destinations are tailored to the individual’s needs and preferences, with the company priding itself on its in-depth knowledge and passion for the environment and African safaris.

Itineraries can cater for special interests, from photography, birdwatching or conservation to culture or geology, while adventure travel can include kayaking, biking, hiking, horse-riding or rhino trekking in remote locations.

One of the biggest draws, however, is the fly-in safari, run by pilot guides who are trained, experienced naturalists. Targeted at individuals or small groups, fly-ins can be adjusted to include, for example, a stopover to climb the dunes of the Namib Desert, gorilla trekking in Rwanda, a beach holiday in Mozambique or snorkelling in Lake Malawi.

Fly-ins allow guests to see more of the country during their trip, without the need for air shuttles or scheduled flights. Guests can team a land-based safari with a fly-in to a neighbouring country to combine the two experiences.

Aircraft are high-wing Cessnas with large windows to give optimum views of the vistas unfurling below. For an extra shot of insider information, in-flight guiding is also available using specially adapted headsets.

African Profile Safaris’ passion for nature is reflected in its diverse mix of locations, itineraries and programmes, which are intended to showcase the best Africa has to offer while promoting the conservation of Namibia’s natural heritage.
