"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

"Third time with Expert Africa, still happy"

I visited Namibia and 2 other countries between 27 Jul 2019 and 25 Aug 2019
"Except for the very bad experience with Bidvest Car Hire (hired through Expert Africa), once again, we had very good experiences using Expert Africa for assisting with planning and booking the trip. We got highly qualified, fast and efficient help from Tracy Lederer from Expert Africa putting together a good trip to this part of Africa, where we have traveled may times, although were were late out booking.

We look forward to use Expert Africa again (our travel agent for the Southern parts of Africa)." Read full review: 29 nights in Africa; 21 on a Namibia trip

"Welcome to Africa Trip"

I visited Namibia and 2 other countries between 1 Jun 2019 and 28 Jun 2019
"A-MA-ZING absolutely amazing. It was way better than I expected and a great experience.

I was surprised by the beauty of the landscape in Namibia despite its dryness. It was easy to travel around, the people were so helpful at our accommodation places and the camping was a great experience. It worked well interspersing a couple of days camping between the lodges and everything that your company organised went to plan.

The planning was meticulous with lots of essential and background information provided to ensure we had a successful trip.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service: Adding the timing of the afternoon game drives/activities at the various lodges may be helpful as we missed some." Read full review: 27 nights in Africa; 9 on a Namibia trip
