Travel reviews by JBB from Surrey

Our Trip as a whole.

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 3-Jun-2013 and 24-Jun-2013 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Namibia. It all worked very well although we did feel that perhaps for the chosen itinerary it would have benefited from an extra two days. For instance - in the Keetmanstoop area your website suggests visiting the Quiver Tree Forest & Giant's Playground - but there simply was not enough time to do this as we arrived late afternoon and had to leave early the following morning.

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.
