"Fulfilled all our expectaions"
Really enjoyed the whole trip. The suggestions by Expert Africa were all good, as was the time spent at each location.
We would not do it differently if we planned it now!" Read full review: 12 nights in Africa; 9 on a Namibia trip
We are left with a desire to go back and spend longer at a few choice places - anywhere other than Swakopmund! - and try a few others e.g. Caprivi Strip. The lodges exceeded our expectations and even Okaukeujo turned out better than we hoped.
The biggest impression was made by all the staff at the lodges. As the public face of Namibia they have a lot to be proud of and could teach hotel staff around the world a thing or two about hospitality. Even car refuelling was a delight with happy singing windscreen washers.
The trip went without a hitch, so Expert Africa's organisation was excellent." Read full review: 14 nights in Africa; 9 on a Namibia trip

"How many superlatives can you fit on one line"
The people in general were very good (minor hassle from the gem sellers in Uis), and the service better than expected. The lodges were all quite good, and again exceeded expectation.
I would defintely recommend Namibia to anyone who wants to go, and can also vouch for most of the overnight stays we did. Just remember to book a 4 wheel drive car!" Read full review: 19 nights in Africa; 14 on a Namibia trip
"Smiths Namibia trip : April 2008"
We felt that the suggested itinerary was very well planned and the information sent was superb. Daily driving distances were about right." Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 11 on a Namibia trip
"Couldn't ask for more..."
It was very reassuring that Gwynneth has stayed in so many of the place, so advice was very accurate. In fact, we've already recommended expertafrica to a friend." Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 13 on a Namibia trip
"One week is better than none!"
"A very enjoyable trip with a touch of luxury"
We were advised to rent a 4x4 but we took the risk in hiring a 2wd during one of the better rainy seasons that Namibia has experienced.... Things were a bit dodgy in places with relatively deep water to cross and many bits of slippery muddy patches and rocks to navigate around but we did it and that gave us a more adventurous edge to our holiday which lead to some good escape stories when we got back!!
The scenery was spectacular, the animals gorgeous and the vast open spaces a fantastic escape from the hustle and bustle of London. I loved every minute of my holiday and would highly recommend Expert Africa to anyone planning a trip to Namibia.
The pack that was sent out prior to the trip was excellent. The map all marked out with our route and places we were staying at was fantastic. All the added details like copies of brochures and print out of maps was fantastic too. I really felt confident in the hands of Expert Africa and everything went according to plan on a 3 week trip so it was a nice treat for me to put the organising of a holiday in the hands of someone else. I have never done this before and you did it brilliantly." Read full review: 22 nights in Africa; 21 on a Namibia trip
"A thoroughly enjoyable trip"
We found the Namibian people welcoming and friendly and hope that, in the places where we stayed, profits remain to benefit the local communities. We did see and hear some evidence of this but were not always sure. It was fun occasionally bumping into people we'd met before, as they tended to follow similar routes.."
