All About Our Agency

Our History

Ondjamba Safaris is a fully registered Namibian tour operator founded over 20 years ago by Dieter and Dongina Risser.  Dieter is passionate about nature and has traveled extensively throughout Namibia and neighbouring countries both privately and as a NATH registered tourguide.

Because of word by mouth recommendations by past clients, leading to an ever increasing interest in what he offered, he realized he needed to expand, while still holding true to what Ondjamba stood for – small, personalized safaris and tours with a passion for wildlife and landscapes.  Daughters Dione and Dana joined the business more than 10 years ago each bringing their unique skillsets to the business.  Together this close family team has successfully helped many clients plan and book their dream vacation to Namibia and surrounds.


A further testament to Ondjamba's success is the number of repeat clients who know almost every corner of Namibia, and still keep coming back!


Our Vision

Our number 1 priority is to provide superb customer service from start of planning to completion of the tour. Since our establishment, we have provided our clients with all the travel services they need to ensure a memorable, hassle free vacation.

Our number 2 priority is to provide clients with unique vacations tailored to their specific interests and budget.  We offer tours from the standard highlights to off the beaten track all individualized to our client’s wishes. Along the flexible routing, we book a range of accommodation from private guest farms to high end lodges.  While we can assist with bookings for scheduled group tours, our preference is to stick to our speciality of individual tailormade tours.

Whatever type of trip you are looking to take, we’ve got you covered. Get in touch today and we’ll take care of the rest.
