Heidy Suess: Namibia Individual Travel, Switzerland


Franzpeter AckermanFranzpeter grew up in Switzerland. As a civil engineer, he spent 20 years in Namibia working on various projects, at the same time traveling and getting to know all the corners of this country. Apart from his passion for the large variety of fauna and flora to be found in Namibia, Franzpeter is interested in the various ethnic groups found in Namibia and its fascinating history. His various interests in Namibia have led to the guiding of special interest safaris and starting a tour operating business offering personal and specialized safaris to Namibia and beyond.


Andrew BassingthwaighteAndrew is a 6th generation Namibian. He grew up on a farm in Namibia and during this time got to know the various small and big animals to be found here. His passion for going “beyond” led to an education in South Africa, first at St Andrew’s College in Grahamstown and then at the University of Natal, Pietermartzburg. After working some years in Johannesburg, South Africa, he returned to Namibia to the wide open spaces that were calling him away from the city of gold. This led to many years of guiding special interest safaris and finally starting the tour business Namibia Individual Travel with Franzpeter.


NIT-teamKaren, Gabi, Ilona and Sabine run the NIT tour office that is based in Windhoek. They are responsible for the organization, booking and administration of all tours, guided and self-drive. They are focused on making each individual tour a “safari of a lifetime”, with an attention to detail and a desire to satisfy the exact wishes of each individual guest. No two tours are the same meaning that we are truly a tailor made safari company.

Even though we have various fixed itineraries, we take pleasure in designing the tour to your exact requirements. You may choose a guided or a self-drive safari or you may combine a camping tour with a lodge safari or alternatively experience a fly-in safari. We also arrange and guide mountain biking and hiking/walking tours.


We run our own tours and also use other specialized freelance travel guides.
