Rainer Kriess

After finishing my school years, I spent some time in Germany to become a Master craftsman in the vehicle trade. But my longing for freedom and love for my home with its unique nature drove me back to Namibia. On my motorcycle trip from Germany through Africa back to Namibia, I discovered many facets of the continent and developed my passion for tourism. Since then, I have been working as a tour guide in Namibia and am more than happy to share my knowledge about the wildlife of Namibia with my guests.

When planning our tours, it is very important for me to draw on my experiences and knowledge in order to provide you with unique experiences. Even with regular guests who have already visited Namibia several times, I always discover new, unexplored destinations and places on our tours.

As your tour guide for guided individual trips, I am of course available to you around the clock. As a native Namibian in the fourth generation, it is a great pleasure for me to safely drive you through my homeland in an all-terrain vehicle and share the special impressions with you.


After receiving more and more personal requests for tours and self-drive tours from former guests who had already traveled with him in the country, Rainer founded MEINE NAMIBIA SAFARIS in 2016. Since then, the tailor-made safaris of Meine Namibia Safaris have become very popular. We not only organize numerous individual self-drive tours through Namibia and Botswana, but also exciting off-road trips through Kaokoland and Damaraland. We have already worked with two international film teams.

To maintain personal contact with our guests, Meine Namibia Safaris regularly participates in various travel fairs in Germany. We attach great importance to leading our guests through our beautiful country with passion and dedication, and to providing them with an unforgettable journey.


We are pleased to announce the merger of MEINE NAMIBIA SAFARIS and EXPLORE NAMIBIA to become one big company, EXPLORE AFRICA TRAVEL - we are now a proud team of 22 travel specialists with offices in Namibia, the Netherlands, and Spain. In addition to our guided adventure tours in Kaokoland and Damaraland, private guided tours, specialized photo tours, and safaris through some of the most beautiful parts of Namibia and Botswana, EXPLORE AFRICA TRAVEL now also offers trips to Malawi, Tanzania, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. Our staff is also working hard to add even more African destinations for you!
