Cape Visit

On this trip, I visited South Africa between 5-Sep-2010 and 26-Sep-2010 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

GoodGood

Overall, we enjoyed it. However, the main reason for our visit - earlier in the year than we would otherwise have chosen - was our long-standing desire to view the vivid 'carpets' of spring flowers for which Namaqualand is so famous. This year there were none - according to local experts, the worst year for a decade. So this was a disappointment and meant that we drove a huge distance - to Springbok and back - for very little purpose. Of course, no-one can be blamed for that.

Our second disappointment was Constantia Uitsig and I have tried to explain why in my comments above. I'd be interested to know what your other clients think about this place.

My Oct 2008 trip

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 8-Oct-2008 and 31-Oct-2008 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Excellent, apart from Sossus Dune Lodge. The distance between the airport and Erongo was a bit much, we thought, after an overnight flight, but Tracy tells me that there is nowhere suitable to stay in between.
