Travel reviews by Family G - northern Namibia trip


Our favourite holiday - ever!

On this trip, I visited Namibia & Zambia between 13-Jul-2014 and 31-Jul-2014 and I travelled with 3 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

We have done many long haul trips and we've been to some amazing countries, but this holiday was the best of the lot!

Sabina had made the perfect itinerary for what we wanted and I would hardly have changed anything - just one extra day at Corona Guest Farm would have been good. There were a few highlights - a hot air balloon trip over the desert with a champagne breakfast whilst at the beautiful Kulala Desert Lodge/ Corona Guest Farm as an overall wonderful stay and. of course, the privilege of staying with Arno and Estelle at Nhoma and experiencing the lives of the Bushmen.

A fantastic holiday

On this trip, I visited Tanzania & Zanzibar between 14-Jul-2008 and 29-Jul-2008 and I travelled with 4 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

We couldn't have asked for a better holiday - both on safari and in Zanzibar.

Suggestions for improvement:

If only Expert Africa dealt with the rest of the world!

It was a pleasure to deal with Eleanor and her knowledge of all aspects of our holiday was spot on. Every single transfer went to plan, all on time, and the accommodation at all the venues was exactly as she had described it to me.

It was Eleanor's suggestion for us to spend 3 days in Ruaha and we wouldn't have missed it for anything.

Thank you.
