A Namibian national parks contractor turned travel advisor, Liebenberg has lived in every major destination in Namibia and driven almost every road (often with his family) to test self-guided safari options. He has also worked on anti-rhino-poaching missions and elephant and lion conservation projects in Etosha National Park.
Insider Clout: When Liebenberg arranges visits to remote Himba villages, he takes care to educate his clients on community traditions. Visitors should greet village members according to hierarchy, for example, and shouldn’t get too close to okuruwo, or sacred fire. “Travelers are more confident when they understand these intimate customs,” he says.
