About Us

Who we are

Great Explorations Namibia, a boutique and specialized travel agency, was founded by Lilly, an industry expert with two decades of experience in guiding travelers through Namibia, Botswana, and Victoria Falls. Having started her journey with The Cardboard Box Travel Shop in 2006, Lilly gained extensive knowledge and expertise, particularly in customizing self-drive safaris, which is her passion. We pride ourselves on being a small, dynamic, focused and independent organisation. Based in Namibia we have plenty of local advice and knowledge and are always on hand to sort out any last minute details of your Namibian holiday.

What we do

Our focus is on individual travellers and small groups, the overwhelming majority of whom are renting a car and self-driving around Namibia. However, we also arrange guided safaris and fly-in safaris, book accommodation and arrange specialist tours (eg birdwatching or walking).

We pride ourselves on being completely independent and our ability to offer holidays that are tailored to individual requirements, budget & interests.

We offer 24/7 backup and are close by while you are travelling and always reachable. Should you feel uncertain along the way or hit a “bump along the road” you can easily contact us, and we will gladly assist you to make your trip and stay in Namibia & Botswana as enjoyable as possible with little or no interruptions.
