Travel reviews by Mr C & Ms B from UK


A wonderful month away from the UK winter!

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 3-Nov-2018 and 4-Dec-2018 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

This was a wonderful trip.

We were lucky to be able to spend 4 weeks in Namibia, and whilst we covered almost 6000km, we were able to spend 2 or 3 nights in all the camps to get a real feel for the various locations.

We visited some areas in the South of the country, which we hadn't been to before, and these were generally quieter and more remote than the more popular areas such as Etosha. We loved it!
