Travel reviews by Mr & Mrs C - County Durham
Our first trip to Namibia
On this trip, I visited Namibia between 18-Apr-2011 and 6-May-2011 and I travelled with 1 other person.
Without doubt one of if not the best hollidays we have ever had.
There are so many highlights it is difficult to specify in particular, but Africat stand out.
Apart fron Halali the lodges where all of a very high standard, with friendly efficient service being the norm.
We cannot wait to go again.
Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:
A minor niggle we had was over the use of 200 Rand notes, after being told they would not be accepted we changed most of ours to lower demoninations, when we got to Namibia we found that everybody accepted the ones we had left over, even the craft stalls and filling stations.
Apart from this one thing we found Exprt Africa to be superb, Sabina organised a fantastic holliday for us.
We really appreciate our travelers’ feedback about the R200 notes.
It is great news that everyone is starting to accept some of the notes again.
We have since looked into the matter further with our colleagues on the ground in Namibia and it is our understanding that the new R200 notes are being accepted. However the old R200 notes is not being accepted and unfortunately they seem to still be in circulation. So to err on the side of caution we are still advising our travelers to avoid taking along R200 notes as it may not always be apparent which is new and which is old.
