Our STORY

Rainer had founded MEINE NAMIBIA SAFARIS in 2016 after he received numerous personal requests for guided and self-drive tours from former clients who had already traveled with him through Namibia. Since then, our tailor-made tours have become very popular.
In addition to our individual self-drive tours through Namibia and Botswana, as well as the exciting off-road trips through the Kaokoland and Damaraland, we have also gained some experience working together with two international film teams.

MY NAMIBIA SAFARIS is regularly represented in Germany at various travel fairs, and we attach great importance to having personal contact with our future and past clients.
We are passionate about making your experience in southern Africa an unforgettable journey and look forward sharing our knowledge of our beautiful country.


To express it in the words of one of our former clients:

"It's about a memory that will stay with you for the rest of your life."


Rainer Kriess

I am Rainer, the founder of MEINE NAMIBIA SAFARIS and your guide, for our guided individual and group tours. As a born and bred Namibian, now the fourth generation in this beautiful country, it gives me incredible pleasure to guide you safely in an off-road vehicle through my home country and share this unique destination and its hidden charms with you.

Once I completed High school, I spent a couple of years in Germany to become a professionally trained mechanic. After a few years, the yearning for the African freedom and the love for my homeland pulled me back to Namibia. At that time, I drove back to Namibia on my motorcycle from Germany across all of Africa. During this five-months journey, I got to know many facets of the mother continent and also discovered my love for tourism.

Since I'm back in Namibia, I have worked as a tour guide. I am happy to share my knowledge about flora and fauna of Namibia with my clients.

When planning a tour, the most important thing is to be able to rely on the experiences of people who know the country and its locals very well. Even for my regular clients who have traveled Namibia often with me, I still find adventurous itineraries that are new and unique to them on my tours.

I am Monique and have been a part of the MEINE NAMIBIA SAFARIS team since the end of 2018. Growing up in the tourism industry, I had built years of experience, which was not only crucial, but also beneficial to becoming part of the team. As a MEINE NAMIBIA SAFARIS booking agent, I will be your direct contact in the office, creating your customized tours. I enjoy the direct customer contact with clients, as it makes each and every tour individual and fun. I look forward to create your dream holiday with you.
