"Our October 2020 holiday to Namibia"

I visited Namibia between 15 Oct 2020 and 1 Nov 2020
"We had a fantastic holiday. It was so good to be able to escape the UK for a bit.

Sabina was incredibly helpful and we had a lot of last minute changes due to covid restrictions and various flights been cancelled and a couple of our original places to stay were closed. She dealt with it all in a very professional and helpful way, always getting back to us really quickly and making sure we were up to date with all the latest information.

We felt completely safe the whole time we were on our holiday, and Namibia is clearly dealing with Covid much better than we are back in the UK." Read full review: 17 nights in Africa; 18 on a Namibia trip

"Return trip to Namibia after 35 years"

I visited Namibia between 12 Mar 2020 and 3 Apr 2020
"We were able to complete two weeks of a four week trip before having to leave at short notice because of the travel restrictions imposed due to the Coronavirus.

What we saw and did in those two weeks we loved.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Nothing at all. Sabina worked tirelessly to sort out flights for us to get us out of Namibia and back to the UK. The situation was changing every few hours as did the airline timetables and seats were very limited indeed. We absolutely could not have done this ourselves. I should point out that we had booked our flights independently and were not meant to be flying out of Windhoek at all so Expert Africa really did go above and beyond in helping us.

We have used Expert Africa a number of times over the years and always recommeded to friends. This trip absolutely highlighted why !" Read full review: 22 nights in Africa; 13 on a Namibia trip

"1 week Taster trip of Namibia"

I visited Namibia between 6 Mar 2020 and 14 Mar 2020
"This was a very good 'Taster' of Namibia while en route to ZA. Its a big country and we didn't want to spend all of our time in the vehicle, our itinerary turned out well, but the dirt roads are long and dusty, probably not for the feint at heart. I worried about getting a puncture or breaking down, luckily neither happened. Its no joke given the remoteness and temperatures. SO its vital to have a well prepared 4 x 4 vehicle and good back up, if needed. We started in Windhoek and ended in Walvis Bay, flying direct to Cape town, ZA, this proved a great way of doing it and removed any need of retracing our steps. Air Namibia were bang on time and gave us great service in a modern aircraft.

Its a beautiful country, just magnificent scenery that changes frequently. Friendly people and a very different way of life. The corona virus started to emerge as we were there 2nd week of March 2020, it seemed a better place to be than Europe !" Read full review: 8 nights in Africa; 7 on a Namibia trip

"Namibia is Worth Visiting"

I visited Namibia between 25 Jan 2020 and 2 Feb 2020
"We sooo enjoyed our trip to Namibia that we plan to return! More to see!

Self driving allowed us to experience the different geography that the country has, but it is a lot of time on the road

A lot of self discovery that is satisfying, along with guides at camps to show you things. A nice mix." Read full review: 8 nights in Africa; 8 on a Namibia trip

"Wonderful latest trip to Africa."

I visited Namibia between 20 Jan 2020 and 8 Feb 2020
"The trip as a whole was really good.

Didn't see as much wildlife as we would have liked but we have been so often that we know that wildlife can be unpredictable. All lodges were friendly with, in the main, excellent food.

The quality of the guiding was a bit mixed ranging from excellent to quite poor, although in the main was quite good." Read full review: 19 nights in Africa; 14 on a Namibia trip

"January 2020 Fly-in safari in Namibia"

I visited Namibia between 17 Jan 2020 and 25 Jan 2020
"This whole trip was an amazing adventure. Expert Africa did a phenomenal job making all the arrangements for us. We truly had never imagined the attention to detail throughout the trip.

The combination of Sossusvlei, Damaraland and Ongava gave us three memorable experiences, made possible by well planned connecting flights. With only a week, I can't think of a better way of arranging things.

We were there in January, which is low season. Although it's supposed to be rainy season, we only saw rain one afternoon in Windhoek. Instead, we had bright sunshine, no crowds, and still plenty of animals to watch.

Wouldn't change a thing!" Read full review: 8 nights in Africa; 8 on a Namibia trip

"Amazing trip - loved it!"

I visited Namibia between 9 Jan 2020 and 27 Jan 2020
"Our overall experience was amazing.
It was special getting to see all the landscapes and the animals. Our guides were knowledgeable and friendly.

We stayed at a variety of accommodations, all of which were great. It ticked all the boxes.
Thank you, Expert Africa.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

We have been trying to think of things but we were really happy with the service and information provided - we have booked with you twice and both times were amazing. We will ponder and let you know.
Thanks again, we had a wonderful time and we have been recommending you!

See you again in a few years :)" Read full review: 18 nights in Africa; 15 on a Namibia trip

"A Nice Way to Wrap Up Our African Holiday"

I visited Botswana and 1 other country between 3 Jan 2020 and 13 Jan 2020
"In total, we spent a month in Africa birding in South Africa and Namibia before our last six nights in Botswana.

Our Botswana experience was a bit of a mixed bag. The two camps we visited - Nxai Pan and Tau Pan - are very nice camps with great staff but are a bit uncomfortable if crowded because of the communal approach to dining. (20 people at a large table shouting at each other.)

We missed one night in the middle of the trip altogether because weather prevented a landing at our second camp and forced us to spend the night at a hotel in Maun.

Overall, a nice but not great experience in Botswana compared to some of our many other African trips.

Overall, Expert Africa does seem to be an "expert" on Africa. This was the second trip that we taken with help from Maruska and we are very pleased with the advice as well as the actual organization of our trips.

Keep up the good work!" Read full review: 10 nights in Africa; 6 on a Botswana safari

"My Dec 2019 trip"

I visited Namibia and 1 other country between 3 Dec 2019 and 22 Dec 2019
"Maruska was great! She made great suggestions and listened to our needs.

The only lodging that was not great was the one that I suggested (next time, i will take your advise, Maruska made suggestions when lodges were above our price-line and I believe our trip was as great as it was thanks to help from Maruska and Expert Africa!

Thanks so much!" Read full review: 19 nights in Africa; 14 on a Namibia trip
