My Jul 2013 trip

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 31-Jul-2013 and 18-Aug-2013 and I travelled with 6 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:

GoodGood

We loved the whole Namibia adventure - the bush, the desert, the mountains and, of course the welcome of the people at all times. We will recommend it to our friends as a once in a lifetime African experience.

Due to the high season and the late booking, we were obliged to choose some accomodation which did not always meet our standards of comfort and food service. Unfortunately the last 3 accomodation choices were substantially inferior to the first 4 choices.

It would have been helpful to know in advance that the rooms and the tents would be very cold - at night and early morning - as they had no room heating. We weren't prepared (with the right clothing) at these times and for the game drives and this
did affect our health and thus our enjoyment.

This was made worse by the drought, which caused very low temperatures across the country early morning and late at night - less than 10° and -3 at Windhoeck on one morning!!

The advice and support ( patience !) of Gwynneth was outstanding at all times and greatly appreciated. This was an important part in the planning and the success of the holiday. So many thanks to her.
