The battle of the tour operators

The three finalists in Namibia Media Holdings' Responsible Tourism Awards category for tour operators are Abenteuer Afrika Safari, Ultimate Safaris and Wild Dog Safaris.

22 May 2018 | Events

The winner of the Responsible Tourism Awards (RTA) in the tour operators' category will be announced at this year's Namibia Tourism Expo.

The finalists for this year are Abenteuer Afrika Safari, Ultimate Safaris and Wild Dog Safaris.

Abenteuer Afrika believes that visiting Namibia provides a unique wellness to the soul. This is the secret that not only attracts new people yearly, but makes them come back time after time. While guests can focus on enjoying this wellness experience, Abenteuer will deal with everything else. Whether you're travelling with a friend or in a group of a 100 people, Abenteuer is able to arrange your entire itinerary with ease, no matter how complicated, from arrival to departure and everything in between.

True to its name, Ultimate Safaris provides guests visiting Namibia with exactly that: the ultimate safari experience. For the conservationists at heart, Ultimate Safaris offers two conservation-themed safaris, one which focuses on the big cats, the other on giraffes. The tour includes three nights spent in the field with the researchers giving first-hand experience of the work done there.

When travelling with Ultimate Safaris, be sure to book a few nights at their //Huab mobile camp situated in Damaraland. Not only offering the ultimate in exclusivity, it also offers the chance to track desert-adapted rhinos with the local rhino rangers.

Specialising in camping tours, Wild Dog Safaris is definitely the way to see Namibia for those who are more adventure-minded. With 20 years of experience, you can be assured that your visit to Namibia will be an unforgettable experience. A great way to see the country is booking one or more of the scheduled tours offered and visiting some of the best Namibia has to offer in the expert care of an experienced guide.

If travelling in a group is not your thing, Wild Dog Safaris will create a private itinerary specially made to suit your interests and desires.

The RTA as initiated by Namibia Media Holdings (NMH) aims to acknowledge and reward tourism operators in accommodation establishments who practise ecotourism in their operations as well as those who invest in the communities where they operate.

The awards are linked to the Namibia Tourism Expo, an annual event which brings together tourism operators from Namibia and neighbouring countries to network and market their products and services.

The winners will be announced at the official opening of the Namibia Tourism Expo that will take place at the Windhoek Showgrounds on 30 May.

The theme of this year's expo is 'Conservation – Small Things Matter' and the RTA winners will be selected during an assessment process that focuses on this theme.
