The vision of Mangetti Travel
We combine 5+ years of knowledge in the Namibian tourism industry with a deep passion for the wild African Bush
We are Harald & Isabel, the team behind Mangetti Travel Agency.
Our vision is to enable as many people as possible to get out into the wild and natural beauty of Africa. Away from all the hustle and bustle of daily life, you will experience an extraordinary journey by exploring the vast landscapes and untamed wildlife of Namibia and the neighboring countries.
How we will support you? We aim to get to know our clients and create the perfect itinerary for your individual needs & dreams. Even though Namibia is the perfect country for self-driving trips due to safety and infrastructure, there are a lot of things you can miss out on or that can go wrong without a knowledgeable partner by your side. No matter if you are looking for a family adventure, photographic safari, recreational nature experience, or excursions off the beaten tracks – we help you create a memorable tour!

Why you should book with us
Benefit from our expertise with a personalized e-book guide
Everyone has different expectations, interests, and dreams when it comes to Safaris and traveling. See as much as possible, relax at the beautiful lodge, get up early for the best sunrise pictures, or enjoy a recreational travel experience in nature.
We want to get to know you and your specific expectations first so that we can create the perfect journey for you, not a trip of the peg.
All our finalized itineraries can also be personalized especially regarding activities.
This is why we create your personal e-book guide!
Some weeks in advance of your journey, you will receive an e-book guide with detailed information about your route and insider tips for activities & stops that match your interests.
A tailor-made trip without any extra costs
We don’t charge you anything for our services – the lodges and hotels we book pay us commission for referrals. In essence, you get our travel expertise and experience in Namibia for the same price as you would get when booking accommodation yourself.
Why we're doing this?
Sharing our passion for Africa with you!
Our love for Africa runs through our veins: Driving through the red sand of the Namib Desert, sleeping under a million stars and viewing the milkyway with your own eyes while hearing laughing Hyenas in the far distance.
Smoothly making your way through the Okavango River on a traditional Mokoro, here and there two eyes glance at you from the riverbanks where Crocodiles get their sunbath and little Hippos balancing on their mums shoulders in the shallow water.
These are the moments that we live for and we want to share them with you! Furthermore, we want to bring as many people into this untamed wilderness, which is hard to find these days. Because what we love, we try to protect.
Wildlife conservation & sustainability
Working with us means supporting Namibia's wildlife
Making a difference is important to us. We’ve pledged to donate 10% of our profits to wildlife conservation of protected species including Hartmans Mountain Zebra, Black Wildebeest, Brown Hyena, Cheetahs and other animals on the Gabus Game Ranch farmlands.
Want to see it with youre own eyes? We can plan youre stay at Gabus Game Ranch, where we are based. You can enjoy your stay at the comfortable lodge and learn more about our work here.
Meet the Team behind Mangetti Travel
Growing up on the family-owned Safari Lodge in northern Namibia, Harald started working in the hospitality and tourism industry from a young age.
He has been to every corner of Namibia and traveled to many of the bordering countries in Southern Africa. Therefore, Harald can provide you with local insider knowledge and the best tips for your adventure. Not to mention the many hilarious but also serious stories life in Africa can tell.
Originally from Germany, Isabel has a professional background in business psychology and human resources.
But based on her deep passion for wildlife and especially Africa, she decided to participate in safari guide training in Kwazulu-Natal, SA. There is nothing more special for her than walking through the African bush, learning more about nature and how to preserve the amazing wildlife.
Sometimes things fall into place and Isabel is now working on a safari lodge, Gabus Game Ranch, in the heart of Namibia.
Most importantly, she has the opportunity to help you create your own very personal African dream with Mangetti Travel!
