November 2012 Namibian Birthday Tour

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 17-Nov-2012 and 2-Dec-2012 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Our trip to Namibia was everything we hoped for and more, the country was spectacular and the people were very friendly and willing to share their knowledge. The hotels we chose were excellent and we feel that the advice that we were given on these by Expert Africa helped us to make the best of our limited time in the country. Namibia was a fantastic self drive destination - we really enjoyed being able to do everything under our own steam at our own pace.

When we go again (which I've no doubt we will) we would probably go a month or so earlier, as we were definitely getting in to the rainy season with some rather overcast and even cool days and the absence of concentrated game in Etosha. However we were aware of this when booking and chose our dates to coincide with my wife's birthday. The upside was that it was even quieter than we expected, enabling us to appreciate the solitude of the landscape and get the exclusive treatment from guides and other staff.

We would definitely book with Expert Africa again and would like to pass on our thanks for a wonderfully advised and arranged trip.
