"Memorable trip, great people, and itinerary "

I visited Namibia between 14 Jul 2019 and 25 Jul 2019
"A great overall introduction and experience in Namibia.

Hospitality was wonderful, many warm people, animals and landscapes amazing.

Roads may be tough to take for some people. We have travelled to over 50 countries and our glad we did not miss Namibia!

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Incredibly accommodating in helping us schedule this last minute trip within our parameters. Would definitely recommend Maruska and the company in the future.

We have been traveling nearly full time the past four years and this process was one of our top experiences!" Read full review: 11 nights in Africa; 9 on a Namibia trip

"Very special place, Namibia. "

I visited Namibia between 9 Jul 2019 and 20 Jul 2019
"Utterly vast and alternately dotted with German cakes and rhino. That's Namibia. The people are lovely. The scenery staggering.

We went thinking we were going on holiday and returned realising we'd experienced the trip of a lifetime. A cliche I know but it's warranted in this case.

Make sure you've got a good set of wheels if you are travelling around (the investment in a Toyota Hilux/Ford Ranger or similar is worth it) and pray that the drought breaks soon. It's a tough and beautiful land." Read full review: 11 nights in Africa; 11 on a Namibia trip

"June 2019"

I visited Namibia between 28 Jun 2019 and 14 Jul 2019
"We loved our trip.

At times we found the impact of the drought challenging - particularly in Etosha. Namibia is a stunning place and a wonderful place to travel in. The standards of accommodation, food and service were far higher than we expected. At times we felt a little uncomfortable with the luxury ( in some places we had wonderful days with out with our guides but at dinner it was the white members of staff we had not really met who sat down and ate with us, for example ).

The driving was perhaps more time consuming that we had imagined and it would have helped to have an idea of the lengths of the drives at the outset with the itinerary. However, the roads were good and we had no problems. We would recommend people take lots of music and podcasts to pass the time." Read full review: 16 nights in Africa; 14 on a Namibia trip

"Mixed bag"

I visited Namibia between 24 Jun 2019 and 4 Jul 2019
"With the exception of Mieke's and Okanjima, I felt the accommodations were overpriced (the Thule Hotel was a bargain, however, I did not make that reservation through EA).

The vehicle was great. I enjoyed the freedom of this self-drive vacation. Saw lots of wildlife and had some good interaction with Namibians apart from in the places we stayed.

We put 2323 km on our vehicle--probably 80% on gravel roads of varying condition. The highlights of the trip were the Cape Cross Seal Colony, the Skeleton Coast, Twyfelfontein pictographs, the Ongava hide, Etosha, and pangolin tracking at Okonjima.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

I am a satisfied EA customer. You do an excellent job of educating your clients.

The attention to detail from first contact through follow up is exceptional.

You can be proud of your organization." Read full review: 10 nights in Africa; 7 on a Namibia trip

"Namibia road trip 2019"

I visited Namibia and 1 other country between 19 Jun 2019 and 12 Jul 2019
"Amazing trip which exceeded our expectations.

All the locations were great but each had their own distinctive feel and character. The landscapes were more impressive than we had expected and it was a real thrill to get to see so many animals and birds up close.

The people throughout Namibia were very friendly and the staff in the lodges were all very welcoming and made us feel at home. Even things like car hire went very smoothly, with great service from the Bidvest staff.

We highly recommend Namibia as a fantastic destination and will definitely be using Expert Africa for any other African adventures which we may have.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

The only thing I would change would be to hire a Toyota 4x4 or double cab next time.

The Nissan X Trail wasn't really robust enough for some of the rougher gravel roads." Read full review: 23 nights in Africa; 21 on a Namibia trip

"A magnificent trip to a fantastic country"

I visited Namibia between 18 Jun 2019 and 2 Jul 2019
"We have absolutely no negative comments. The whole trip was perfectly planned and executed. There is nothing that in retrospect we would do differently. My wishes and tastes were perfectly interpreted by your organisation.

It was a real joy to drive on those empty gravel roads for hundreds of kilometers and gave a bit of a sense of adventure. We would recommend to anyone!

Our trip was not organised by Sabine but by Josh, who has left, so my comments apply to him." Read full review: 14 nights in Africa; 10 on a Namibia trip

"Outstanding trip full of highlights"

I visited Namibia between 5 Jun 2019 and 20 Jun 2019
"I finally made the trip to Namibia and am full of praise of it.

The arrangements by ExpertAfrica were made with knowledge and experience which made a solo trip rather easy and worry free. Despite the serious drought Namibia is a beautiful country with much to offer. Wildlife, varied scenery, ancient cultures and friendly people everywhere were the main highlights.

I wished I had allowed more time for the trip. I am thus thinking of coming back as soon as I can and visit other places not included in this trip." Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 14 on a Namibia trip

"My May 2019 trip"

I visited Namibia between 26 May 2019 and 14 Jun 2019
"We loved our trip and really loved the places we stayed. The only thing I might change is that every other day we had long drives. This was mostly unavoidable because we wanted to cover a lot of ground but the long drive from the middle camp n Etosha to the camp outside could have been avoided but then again we did like that private camp. Maruska did a great job overall and we appreciated her guidance." Read full review: 19 nights in Africa; 16 on a Namibia trip

"A brief taste of Namibia"

I visited Namibia between 21 May 2019 and 30 May 2019
"We chose Namibia as we need somewhere that could accommodate a relatively short trip, and where we could also do some activities/lodges that, although wildlife-focused, would provide a different experience or environment from other safaris we have done in Southern & East Africa. We therefore had a slightly unusual itinerary (no Etosha, and the south of the country simply wasn't possible to do as well in the time we had). I do feel like we will probably have to come back, as everyone kept telling us how amazing the desert was! But the places we visited were all very good and we certainly had some new and very interesting experiences.

The self-driving was a bit of new concept for us (on African trips I have only driven in South Africa before as most safaris in Zambia, Kenya etc are not practicable for self-drivers) but, although the drives were long and everything seemed to take a bit more time than I expected, the roads were no worse and in many case much better than they are in South Africa."
