First time in Namibia but not the last

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 16-Sep-2011 and 2-Oct-2011 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

We had a great time. We haven't driven ourselves in Africa for a long time and really enjoyed the experience.

Wonderful country; we were never far from beautiful mountains and the roads were excellent. People are friendly and welcoming. We felt safe wherever we went. The suggested itinerary gave a wonderful insight into the country and we intend to return.

Angela was very helpful and responded quickly to all our questions.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

No. This is the second time we have booked through Expert Africa, and have been impressed both with the recommendations and the efficiency with which the booking has been handled.

My Apr 2009 trip

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 24-Apr-2009 and 10-May-2009 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

One of the best trips we've ever done (and we've done a few similar).

The four places we visited were all excellent in different ways, which was what we hoped for. We have been to Zambia three times before at the end of the dry season, and we wanted to see it at a different time of year and visit new places. Mutininondo and Shiwa were recommendtaions from people we'd met on previous trips, and Claire was able to reassure us that they would be good so we were dleighted that they were. Claire's recommendation to go to Shoebill was also excellent.

All in all, a wondeful experience, great scenery, excellent wildlife and we met some very interesting people.

Suggestions for improvements:

Can't think of anything. Efficient, friendly service. Helpful in setting everthing up kept us infomed about changes.
