Travel reviews by Mr M & Mrs P - Hampshire


Enjoyable trip

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 3-Jan-2012 and 27-Jan-2012 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Namibia is a beautiful country and we recommend a trip there!

We love the vastness and openess of the place and the scenery can be breathtaking at times Take a trip up any riverbed and in particular the Swakop River and sit back and be prepared to be blown away by mother nature. Even driving along some of its awful roads is great fun (you must have the right vehicle though!) but the tarred roads we found to be in very good conditon with very little traffic. Put on a CD and enjoy the drive!! You never know what you will see along the way!

Namibia is very expensive though, a complaint made by nearly every other tourist we chatted to and even the localsfeel that we tourists are ripped off with very high charges. It is something the Namibian Tourist Board needs to seriously look at. Not everyone who would love to go there is wealthy!

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

No further suggestions - we would be very happy to use Expert Africa yet again

Most enjoyable.

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 11-Dec-2008 and 29-Jan-2009 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

All accommodation more than acceptable.
Expert Africa reputation held in high regard concerning honesty/arrangements etc.

Overall standard of food excellent but portion sizes greater than European norm, e.g. Ploughmans at Grootberg Lodge had excess meat.
Also cold puddings more acceptable than hot 'solid' puddings.

Suggestions for improvements:

No! We have been more than satisfied with service provided.
