Bluecrane Safaris is a Luxury Mobile Safari operator offering guided tours of Namibia's top destinations using both luxury camping and lodge accommodation.
Conducting both set-departure safaris, and special tailor-made excursions for family and specialist groups, Bluecrane Safaris is versatile and all encompassing. The combination of a few nights in remote destinations under deluxe Meru-style canvas tents, and a couple of nights in luxury safari lodges, leaves little to be desired.
All camping duties, from camp construction, to cooking, to drinks service is taken care of, leaving guests with only the responsibility to relax in these private campsites selected for their remoteness and their locations in some of the best wildlife regions in the country.
