Travel reviews by Sheffield x 4 from UK

A close encounter with the natural world!

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 21-Oct-2011 and 8-Nov-2011 and I travelled with 4 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:


I loved this holiday. The only thing missing was contact with local culture and food, which was inevitable and predictable in such an under populated country.

I wish we had had one more day in Swakopmund to do a pelagic or desert tour or to go kayaking. Mushara didn't add much to the trip but I could have stayed another day at Hoodia or Entendeka, especially if it had been cool enough to walk more.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

I found the one night stops less rewarding on the whole although sometimes that can't be avoided. Sabina did a good job guessing our needs from our comments which may have been contradictory at times. Perhaps a very brief set of questions at the start? Sabina was very responsive to our wish to walk and we managed quite abit even though it was very hot.
