Are you looking for a tailor-made tour with just yourselves as clients? Then Tandala Ridge Tours is the perfect company for you. All our tours are individually packaged and limited to a maximum of four persons. We do not mix you with strangers. If you like a particular location, under most circumstances you will be able to extend your stay. We plan for relaxed schedules instead of rushing from place to place.
We offer a wide range of accommodation from the luxurious to all camping and combinations of both. Our main focus is natural history, mammals, birds, plants and geology but we also offer cultural and historical trips. Our guides are Tim Osborne and Wilferd Versfeld, co-owners of Windpoort Farm and authors of the Guidebook to Etosha National Park. Tim is a retired wildlife biologist who is one of the top birders and bird ringers in Namibia. He has discovered two new species of small mammal on Windpoort Farm. Wilferd works in Etosha NP as a biologist and has extensive knowledge of the Namibian plants and animals. He is a NATH II guide.
