Africa Safari Company Makasa Safaris Owners

Start planning your dream trip

Makasa Safari is the company of Selma and Yohannes Ngomi Kamm. Ngomi, born and raised in Tanzania, started working as a tour guide for the safari company of his parents when he was seventeen. He subsequently studied zoology in the USA. Ngomi has over twenty years of experience working in the safari business. Selma, born and raised in the Netherlands, started her career as a qualified nurse. During her internship in a Tanzanian hospital, she fell in love with Ngomi as well as with the country where they started Makasa Safaris in 2009 together. This wealth of experience is your guarantee that you will experience the finest service, down to the minutest detail, on a journey that will leave you with a lifetime of memories. The business is their dream, and their goal is to make your dream trip come true.

Why choose Makasa Safaris?

Far be it from us to blow our own trumpet. Our Dutch/German background, which helps us to understand what Western travellers want, is not unique. The combination with the fact that we live in Tanzania, Africa and take care of every detail of your trip, however, does give us a unique advantage. In addition, selecting Makasa for your journey offers a number of important benefits. View the full list below.

Africa Safari Namibia

Namibia

Namibia is home to some of Africa’s most incredible landscapes. Imagine mountains made of deep rusty red sand, blackened dead acacia trees and you’re picturing the spectacular dunes of Sossusvlei. Or drive along The Skeleton Coast – a harsh but handsome shoreline littered with the carcasses of sunken ships and dead whales. Namibia offers plenty of wildlife as well; visit Etosha National Park for an incredible safari. Self-drives or guided tours are possible. And while you are there, meet the oldest inhabitants of southern Africa: the San bushmen.
Okavango Delta Botswana

Visit Namibia and Botswana

Combine a Namibia holiday with Botswana! Botswana is renowned for its pristine wilderness areas characterised by deep lagoons, wetlands, lush palms, rugged hills and desert plains scattered with scrubland. The country’s primary tourist drawcard is undoubtedly the vast red expanse of the Kalahari Desert and its remarkably beautiful Okavango Delta, the largest inland delta in the world. These natural wonders provide a tranquil haven for an abundance of African wildlife to thrive. Other highlights include the impressive Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, where visitors are privy to massive zebra migrations during the flood season; the Savuti plains, which host large prides of lions; and the Tsodilo Hills, where 4500 rock paintings form a unique record of human settlement over many millennia.

Self-drive Safaris

Namibia’s road network is mostly made up of gravel roads. We offer you a selection of the best 4×4’s perfectly designed for Namibia’s gravel and tar roads. They are convenient for driving in the rainy season too. There are different 4x4 vehicles to choose from, depending how you want to travel. What all vehicles have in common is that they are not older than 2,5 years. You want to rest assured that you have the best possible car, being able to comfortably carry you over the long stretches of the Namibian roads. We are happy to advice you on which vehicle will suit you best.
