self-drive trip through Namibia and Kgalagadi

On this trip, I visited Namibia & South Africa between 3-Sep-2010 and 27-Sep-2010 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Our 2010 Africa trip was the latest in a succession of memorable trips arranged by Expert Africa. Each trip has brought a new experience relived again through our films, photos and my diary. This year's highlight just had to be the bushcamp experience at Dolomite Point. I have to praise the dedication and hard work which was shown by Abel, Jeraboam, Victor andJoseph. They made a superb team. I know it was only a temporary camp and will not be repeated but it was surreal.

This year was our 9th fly-drive visit to Namibia and 2nd to the Kgalagadi. We still believe there is no better place to see wildlife than Namibia closely followed by Botswana. If there is an increase in retirement pensions in April we'll be booking another trip!!

Thank you Expert Africa. You're the best tour operator we've found - scrupulously thorough and helpful.

Another excellent trip

On this trip, I visited Botswana & Namibia between 17-Sep-2008 and 9-Oct-2008 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

We always enjoy our trips that you organise, but this year, in particular, we felt that it was your influence that got us the choice accommodation sites at the camps and lodges. Especially the Mukwae. We couldn't be so lucky all the time.

We appreciate the time and effort you must put in to find the camps that we would like.
