After more than 30 years and thousands of miles of experience, we are considered one of the leading safari companies in Namibia. Our staff is employed full time throughout the twelve months of the year, which has made each member of the staff part of our family.
Living and working in Africa imparts people with a strong sense of social responsibility. The gap between those who have and those who do not is often vast. Karibu Safaris takes great pride and joy in undertaking small social intiatives to help uplift rurual communities.
Karibu Safaris is also a proud member of the Namibia Nature Foundation.
The primary aims of the NNF are to promote sustainable development, the conservation of biological diversity and natural ecosystems, and the wise and ethical use of natural resources for the benefit of all Namibians, both present and future.
