Namibia Holidays Tours & Safaris

Felix Heyl (Fritz Gerhard Heyl) was born in Konstanz on Lake Bodensee in 1953 and grew up in Bad Pyrmont. He did his apprenticeship as a hotel manager at the Bad Pyrmont Kurhotel and completed it at the Wülfeler Brauereigaststätten in Hannover. Several years in various positions in the gastronomy in Germany brought him to South Africa in 1982 and to Namibia in 1984. From 1982 to 2016 he held senior positions in well-known hotels and lodges in the two states and decided to say goodbye to gastronomy in 2016 in order to pursue his part-time job as a tour guide, which he had practiced in his last run lodge, to give full dedication. So his passion led to the founding of Namibia Holidays Tours & Safaris in May 2016. Felix has been married to Sylvia Ndapandula Nghinamanhu since 2014, also with extensive experience in tourism and who is at his side with advice and action. They have two small children Sabine and Christoph Heyl.


Namibia Holidays Tours & Safaris is a small local tour operator specializing in personalized private safaris and tours in Namibia and neighboring countries. All trips and safaris are planned and carried out personally by the owner of the company. Our tours are tailor-made and tailored to the needs of our customers. Our portfolio includes near-nature adventures, scenic short breaks and incredible encounters with wild animals with the aim of offering our guests the best possible travel experience while making every effort to take specific individual wishes and requirements into account. Namibia Holidays Tours & Safaris not only stands for satisfied customers, but also supports an ecologically sustainable form of tourism. The interests of the environment and the local population must match our own. That is why we only take photos on our trips and only leave footprints. We would be happy to show you Namibia.
