"My Sep 2023 trip"
All the arrangements worked perfectly - except we didn't get met at the airport by Wilderness Safaris and had to go and find them." Read full review: 25 nights in Africa; 23 on a Namibia trip
"A memorable trip !"
Accommodation everywhere was excellent. Food for a carnivore was outstanding.
Be aware that many of the gravel roads are very poor and challenging to drive on, especially in an SUV." Read full review: 17 nights in Africa; 15 on a Namibia trip

And THANK YOU Tracy for all your help!" Read full review: 20 nights in Africa; 20 on a Namibia trip
"June 2023 honeymoon"
The pack that Expert Africa sent us was great - the map and itinerary with directions was all we needed to easily navigate our way around. We really wouldn't have any faults at all (if you pushed us then maybe a more robust car would be beneficial. We had 1 flat tyre which is not unusual on those roads but we did struggle with some of the long and bumpy driveways to the lodges).
It's impossible to choose favourites but Zannier Sonop, Sossusvlei Desert Lodge and Onduli Ridge were our favourite stays. The staff were always so welcoming and looked after us very well. And they were all set in the most beautiful scenery. It really takes your breath away.
We will not forget this trip in a heartbeat and hope very much to replicate again or something similar in the not so distant future.
Thank you Tom for helping us plan such a memorable honeymoon - what a great start to married life!" Read full review: 13 nights in Africa; 11 on a Namibia trip

We felt very grateful to have the privilege of visiting Namibia and we have returned to our normal lives with a new perspective of how life can be lived." Read full review: 16 nights in Africa; 14 on a Namibia trip
"My Dec 2022 trip"
It was always a bit of a risk going back to a country that we had previously visited and loved, but this trip was even better." Read full review: 23 nights in Africa; 21 on a Namibia trip
"Our 5th time in Namibia; we love the place"
For now four of the trips, we have used Expert Afrika, which we have great confidence in. This time was no exception, we had a wonderful trip to Namibia.
However, there was one - not insignificant - moment of irritation this time. We ended up with a hopeless 2WD Kia for the round trip in the beginning. This was very far from our request of a solid 4WD car (as also important during previous trips). When booking, we had an OK 4WD car on hand and then accepted the trip. Later however, we got ""upgraded"" to a larger 2WD car. This was not OK. Fortunately, we got the right category of car (Toyota Forester) after approx. 10 days - otherwise it would have been a disaster.
We look forward to use Expert Africa again for the fifth time, but next time, at first, we will make sure we have the right category of car before proceeding with the planning." Read full review: 36 nights in Africa; 35 on a Namibia trip
"My Oct 2022 trip"
We are glad we followed the route we did, getting the bad roads out of the way first and finishing with the better tarmac roads and animal spotting.
We will definitely be seeking your advice and guidance for our next trip to Africa." Read full review: 17 nights in Africa; 15 on a Namibia trip
