Our Trip as a whole.
Namibia between 3 Jun 2013 and 24 Jun 2013
Despite this we both felt that the trip had been very well thought out and superbly organised., Most importantly we felt well protected under the umbrella of Expert Africa. It was good to hear at our first stay in Windhoek what a reliable firm you are!!!!
We would most certainly recommend Expert Africa to anyone wanting to visit Namibia.
Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:
Perhaps some written information about what is 'doable' in the time around the various camps/hotels.
I asked for approximate journey times between destinations which was invaluable.........maybe include those as part of your service. It is hard to work those out when you are used to travelling on paved roads!!!!
Maybe it would be worth offering two standards of accommodation in locations where that would be possible."

Although by no means compulsory, most guests are happy to visit the night hide with the hope of spotting porcupine, brown hyena, honey badger and genets. The animals are free to come to eat the kitchen scraps (that would otherwise be wasted) but are not dependent on them, as demonstrated by the fact that they don't always come to the hide. The animals come when they want an 'easy meal' but are not a guaranteed sighting.
The same is true of the leopards - when out on a leopard tracking activity guests can and do see leopards, but again this is not guaranteed. With just one night guests have just one chance to spot a leopard, another reason why we would urge our travellers to stay at least two nights here. In the case of these travellers their guide tried hard to spot a leopard for them, but was hindered by thick bush and mountainous terrain.
