"Our May 2023 Namibia trip"

I visited Namibia between 7 May 2023 and 20 May 2023
"One of the best ever. We had a brilliant time from start to finish.

Namibia was surprisingly quiet which is a shame as it is a great destination.

We liked Desert Rhino camp best but it was all good. Everyone we met was friendly and helpful." Read full review: 13 nights in Africa; 11 on a Namibia trip

"felt like a once in a lifetime holiday"

I visited Namibia between 15 Apr 2023 and 27 Apr 2023
"From first contact with Expert Africa, this had the feeling of being a special trip - and our experience was exactly that.

The suggested itinerary, prepared by Tracy after discussing with her only what we vaguely wanted, was spot on; the standard of the accommodation was beyond our expectation; and the quality of the detailed information pack, guidebook, map etc was the best we've ever had (and we've travelled extensively so have lots of benchmarks).

No question was too silly, even those we had on the day before we left about a particular route we were thinking of taking, and Tracy clearly had detailed, expert knowledge and insight of Namibia which was both reassuring and inspiring.

Our overall experience was way beyond anything we've ever had before and, based on this, we will use Expert Africa every time now. and would recommend them without hesitation to others.

Keep doing what you're doing - it's best in class!" Read full review: 12 nights in Africa; 11 on a Namibia trip

"My Feb 2023 trip"

I visited Namibia between 24 Feb 2023 and 13 Mar 2023
"A memorable trip to a new country. Any negatives about one or two places we stayed are more than outweighed by the excellent other ones. It was much hotter than expected (8-10 C above seasonal norms) and this, a bit of tummy trouble and the gravel roads made it tiring at times (and these are all hazards that are part and parcel of a trip and nothing that yourselves could / should expect to deal with).

The characteristics of travelling on gravel or tarmac are so different that we could have done with being better informed about specific routes when planning. Also the passage of time renders some of the guidebook information out of date and this is a problem on the map also. For example the map incorrectly shows a petrol station at Seeheim - this meant retracing our steps for 60 km (so an extra 120km which then meant missing an activity at our destination) to ensure we had enough petrol.

We lost count of the number of coffee shops / bakeries in the guidebook that had closed / disappeared. Having sussed the driving out we went "off-piste" and cancelled one overnight stay and cut-short our stay at Sesriem so we could fit in a stay at Walvis Bay. We let the cancelled place know but our email to Expect Africa to tell of the same went unacknowledged apart from an "o-o-o but someone is covering for me" reply.

Namibia is a spectacular country with friendly people and provided us with some great memories." Read full review: 17 nights in Africa; 16 on a Namibia trip

"My Feb 2023 trip"

I visited Namibia between 24 Feb 2023 and 2 Mar 2023
"Many thanks to Sabina for her help and patience. Although I've been to Namibia many times and travelled a lot it hasn't previously occurred to me to use a tour operator (I've just booked things on the spot, or just turned up - easy enough in Namibia in February).

This was a good experience, with some definite advantages.

I don't know whether it was less expensive to do it this way than by doing it myself, but valuable the advice and help from Sabina was certainly something I wouldn't have got otherwise." Read full review: 6 nights in Africa; 5 on a Namibia trip

"My Feb 2023 trip"

I visited Namibia between 3 Feb 2023 and 19 Feb 2023
"Wonderful first trip to Namibia.

Exceeded our expectations and we enjoyed all aspects of the trip. Landscapes are stunning, animals are exciting to see and we felt that the lodges and overall trip was making a positive contribution to supporting local people and environment efforts.

Would recommend kayaking with seals at Walvis Bay as a side excursion. Going out of season did mean that a couple of lodges were very quiet but in the positive side we had some personalised excursions, found that the Etosha waterholes were not mobbed by visitors and that the heat was manageable.

We would certainly recommend this trip and ExpertAfrica to others - thank you to Tracy for the fantastic service and also for sending us the Namibia guidebook which we found so useful and used extensively." Read full review: 16 nights in Africa; 14 on a Namibia trip

I visited Namibia between 29 Jan 2023 and 18 Feb 2023
"Sabina was endlessly patient in tweaking this trip to get it just right for us, and she succeeded beyond our expectations.

We had a great mix of accommodation styles and Sabina took on board our request for lots of hiking, giving us plenty of opportunities to really explore Namibia.

Overall a great trip." Read full review: 20 nights in Africa; 20 on a Namibia trip
