Experts in the Field

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 21-Sep-2007 and 7-Oct-2007 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

The company is a joy to deal with, feels very personal and makes things special even before the trip has begun. Wouldn't dream of booking through anyone else and although tempted at times to make own arrangements feel in such safe hands we wouldn't risk it.

Trip as a whole was as fantastic and rewarding as always and we are planning the 9th (and even the 10th!) already.
