My Nov 2014 trip

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 5-Nov-2014 and 15-Nov-2014 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

We intend to book a similar trip again (maybe in 2016). Apart from a few minor issues, everything was perfect.

The only recommendation I would suggest is a visit to a local village - we would have been willing to sacrifice one of our game drives for that.

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:

ExcellentExcellent

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.
