Namibia Safari Tours and More
Nature Travel Namibia is an owner-run safari company based in Windhoek in Namibia that offers Namibia Safari Tours. The company was founded in 2009 by Nick Buys, a passionate wildlife and conservation veterinarian. With a dedicated team of consultants and guides, we are committed to making your Namibia Safari Tour dreams come true!
Nature Travel Namibia mainly focuses on creating personalised custom made private safari tours, focusing specifically on our clients’ interests, preferences and budget. We offer several types of safaris which include specialist safaris like birdwatching, conservation, photographic and active safaris.
On our private safaris, our clients have the luxury of determining the pace of their own safari, deciding how much time they want to spend at a sighting or attraction.
Our Nature Travel guides are all very well qualified and have extensive knowledge of wildlife, nature, birdlife and culture. Depending on our client’s specific interests, we match them with the best suitable guide where possible. Our guides are all trained in first aid and Nature Travel Namibia offers emergency evacuation cover.
We also offer group safaris and with these safaris, we keep the groups to 6 people or less. This is to ensure an exclusive and personal safari experience.
Nature Travel Namibia works with many different lodges and can offer clients accommodation ranging from luxurious to mid-range and budget. We prefer to discuss the client’s specific interests and expectations for a safari with the client telephonically where possible to ensure we offer them the best possible itinerary that will match their preferences.

Nick Buys, owner and head guide, was born and raised in the beautiful country of Namibia, a privilege that made Africa and its wildlife a concrete part of his childhood. His passion for birds and other wildlife of this beautiful country led to his decision to follow a career in wildlife. After completing his Bachelor of Veterinary Science degree from the University of Pretoria, he worked extensively in the Caprivi region where he was involved in various wildlife research and community projects. He has worked with several carnivore and endangered species conservation organisations and is experienced in conservation tourism in Namibia.
Based on his background and experience he includes a conservation aspect into all wildlife and birding safaris and he has created a few conservation safaris where you can get a behind the scenes look at wildlife conservation and the idea is that by doing the safari you make an active contribution to conservation in Africa and across the globe.
Nick has also founded the Nature Travel Wildlife Conservation and Veterinary Trust. (https://naturetraveltrust.com/) His veterinary background together with experience at other conservation organisations and in conservation tourism allowed him to form his own conclusion on what he believes is the way forward in tourism in this part of the world. There are several great conservation organisations in Namibia all doing fantastic work but with this trust we really believe that we can contribute where there is a real conservation need and continue to help preserve the wildlife and habitat of this amazing and beautiful country.
