African Adventure 2016

On this trip, I visited Namibia & South Africa between 9-Sep-2016 and 2-Oct-2016 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

We have come to expect wonderful holidays when organised by Expert Africa and once again we were delighted. From our first chat to Tracy until we got this form our holiday was all we expected it to be.

We only wish it could have been longer - a couple of days more at Bushman's Kloof (to take advantage of their 4 nights for the price of 3) and an extra night at Augrabies Falls. We wonder if staying inside Etosha is not for us anymore as standards do not improve - although the accommodation was fine in both Dolomite and Okaukuejo.

Thanks Tracy we had a fantastic holiday!

Another Amazing Adventure in Namibia/Botswana

On this trip, I visited Botswana & Namibia between 3-Jun-2015 and 25-Jun-2015 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Another wonderful holiday in Namibia and Botswana visiting some old favourites and some new ones that will probably become old favourites now.

Everything went smoothly from the arrival of the brochure to our arrival in Namibia and our return home.
Sabina organised an excellent trip for us - was that Sabina that we met at Doro Nawas? we thought it was but perhaps were wrong.

Nothing can replace the absolute peace we feel either looking at the stars or sitting round a waterhole late at night . The long empty roads are a joy to drive and arriving at such magical destinations incomparable. We feel that we had several holidays all rolled in to one - a couple by the river, in Etosha, at wonderful Doro Nawas, the seaside, and then Sossusvlei.

Just one amazing adventure.

Thanks for such a great trip from start to finish.
