My Oct 2015 trip

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 23-Oct-2015 and 8-Nov-2015 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

Car Hire by Bidvest. We ask for a car where all the windows wind completely down. As keen photographers this gives the window sill to steady the camera. Bidvest receptionist assured us that the Toyota Etios did this. The rear windows did not wind right down which meant trying to balance our long lenses on the edge of a pane of glass which also was rounded, hence a bit of a nightmare.

Basically we loved the trip but but the generator problem and the window problem detracted a little.

Brilliant as it is. Martha took over from Angela and was really helpful. Got back to us quickly with minor changes.

Have recommended Expert Africa to a couple of friends

Tofts to Namibia

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 3-Nov-2013 and 23-Nov-2013 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

All worked out very well. Toyota Corolla was perfectly adequate, the two passes have new surfaces so no trouble,most dirt roads very good but two sections on Klein Aus to Sesriem corrugated.

Discovered at Solitaire we had lost our oil filler cap but mechanic fixed a temporary repair which lasted for the remaining 2500km.

Disappointed the Budget office in Walvis Bay shut since wanted to talk about the cap.
