Travel reviews by Family A from New Zealand

Absolutely fantastic trip

On this trip, I visited Botswana, Namibia & Zimbabwe between 10-Dec-2012 and 2-Jan-2013 and I travelled with 5 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:


We had an absolutely superb trip and our family will treasure our memories forever.

We thought it was a very well balance trip, with organised activities balanced with independent travel. Renting a car was a fabulous way to travel around Namibia with a young family and the trip was very well planned with the travel distances very manageable and clear The detailed organisation by Maruska and Saskia made for a seamless and very enjoyable holiday.

Our time with the Bushmen was one of our highlights so thanks for the suggestion and organisation of this part of our adventure.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

At times it would have been nice to know if we were going to be travelling on gravel or sealed roads and the map provided didn't seem to differentiate between the two.
