A family adventure

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 12-Aug-2010 and 29-Aug-2010 and I travelled with 4 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

An enjoyable trip with mainly good accommodation. Animals at the western end of Etosha a bit scarce as they all seemed to have gone to the middle and eastern end.

Weather was unseasonably warm which we all enjoyed and a wonderful holiday enjoyed by all especially as Ben was able to use all the swimming pools which added to his enjoyment.

Capetown and the Garden Route

On this trip, I visited South Africa between 6-Nov-2009 and 24-Nov-2009 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

GoodGood

We enjoyed the trip apart from the weather - it only warmed up the last 3 days. It was to be expected in Spring but locals could not believe the weather themselves.

This trip was a part of Africa we wanted to see although we had been to Capetown 20 years before but would not repeat as we prefer to see more wildlife and this is not the right area. It was our choice but enjoyable nevertheless.

We would have preferred more details in advance on the accomodation in SANParks as we took more equipment than necessary.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Impressed with receiving our final documents earlier than normal due to postal strikes
