Namibia 2013

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 22-Jun-2013 and 8-Jul-2013 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


We had an amazing trip from start to finish and experienced so much in the time we were there. Apart from delays back on the South African flights everything went very smoothly which is also great when you are covering large distances and keeping to a tight schedule.

The variety of the accommodation was superb and the effort by the lodges etc to make us comfortable was terrific.

The whole experience was just great!

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Our only concern is that you advertise the self drive as easy and the roads as good. We think you need to think again about advertising it as this. The roads were far worse than you described, as the corrugation was very bad for very long distances increasing the travel times greatly.

I would not recommend driving in Namibia lightly to anyone who is not comfortable travelling in uncertain and at times challenging situations. We however, thoroughly enjoyed the challenges and the additional freedom it gave us. Even the Namibians thought we were brave! They are themselves aware of the many dangers of driving.
