My Sep 2012 trip

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 11-Sep-2012 and 22-Sep-2012 and I travelled with 4 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:


The trip was wonderful and we loved Namibia. We took our 19-year-old daughter and her friend, and they barely noticed the lack of satellite TV, entertainment etc, as they were so entranced with everything we saw and did.

Sabina sorted out a great itinerary that managed to fit in everything we wanted, and we stayed in some fantastic places. Overall, the trip exceeded our expectations. The country is huge but so easy to drive yourself around, and it's almost impossible to get lost. The drives are a great part of the holiday, indeed.

We met lovely people, did so much but managed to feel very relaxed, and saw amazing scenery and more animals than we ever imagined. We felt totally away from everyday life, and had experiences we will never forget.
