A memorable, wonderful trip

Namibia between 25 Jan 2012 and 31 Jan 2012

Trip rating: Excellent
"We were delighted with Expert Africa and would definitely recommend them to anyone. Some friends recommended them to us and we thank them.

We would certainly use them again but not use any Budget vehicles. Fortunately we had two experienced 4 x 4 drivers with us otherwise we are not sure what we would have done being stranded at the airport in Walvis Bay. Budget could have ruined our holiday so expertly arranged by Expert Africa."

Sam's Giardino

Sam's Giardino

"Sams Garden oif Eden."

2 nights Arrived 25 Jan 2012
"Superb garden to relax in after a busy day. Sam very useful advising and booking tours. We ate in his 'wine cellar' each night and food and wine excellent. Accomodation good.

A high-light of our stay was the catamaran trip in Walvis Bay. Seals on the boat, large dolphins chasing the boat and further out of the bay there were hundreds of small dusky dolphins which apparently only appear two or three times a year. How lucky were we! We even saw several huge sun fish. All this and sparkling wine and fresh oysters."

Sossus Dune Lodge

Sossus Dune Lodge

"A small refuge in a vast wilderness"

2 nights Arrived 28 Jan 2012
"Expert Africas warnihg re needing to pay a deposit and take an inventory of room contants proved not correct. This is apparently only required in Chobe. Staff were wonderful and so friendly. Scenery spectacular especially sun sets. Dune 45 wonderful.

Birdlife in Sossusvlei Pan wonderful and very tame. Feeding from hand. Many problems with our vehicle. Our Budget Hire 4 x 4 not a good vehicle at all and totally unsuitable for soft sand. See later comments. Rangers needed to tow us out."

Bagatelle Kalahari Game Ranch

Bagatelle Kalahari Game Ranch

"Our wonderful Out of Africa experience."

1 night Arrived 30 Jan 2012
"Although this ranch did not have a variety of game it was a wonderful stopover. Unfortunately for us we only one night here. The main house was reminiscent of 'Out of Africa' and was definitely a favourite for us. Tame springbock joined us for breakfast.

The sunset game drive was most enjoyable complete with sundowners with a very good guide. Would love to go back!"
