Namibia Tour 2008

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 13-Feb-2008 and 28-Feb-2008 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


An excellent trip, but much wetter than we expected (We had been to Namibia in February before and saw no rain).

This is a good time of year to see everything green (even in the desert) and the young animals in Etosha.

Very quiet in Etosha. We watched a rhino for 30 minutes and no other car came along.

With two spare tyres we had no punctures this time. We managed easily without a 4x4 - I would not have attempted to cross the Tsauchab in flood even with a 4x4 as the water was above my knees and flowing fast. No problems with the car and very helpful staff at Windhoek airport.

I stayed at and have reviewed:
