Magnificent - the best Apart from the less t

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 26-Aug-2016 and 17-Sep-2016 and I travelled alone.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Even the short comings of Okaukuejo and the totally unsatisfactory Daan Viljoen could not spoil the trip that we had. It was just wonderful.

I travelled with 2 friends who had been before and 3 ' newbies ' who were thrilled with the whole Southern African experience and I don't think it will be their last trip.

Everything was efficiently handled and a BIG thank you to Maruska.

My Jun 2014 trip

On this trip, I visited Namibia & South Africa between 27-Jun-2014 and 16-Jul-2014 and I travelled alone.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

A really enjoyable trip which was made really easy and nearly foolproof by Maruska,s attention to details , prompt replies and advice. We loved our side trip to Victoria Falls.

On the whole the trip was without any major hitches but I doubt that I will go back to Caprivi although I will undoubtably go back to Namibia.

I was shocked at the obvious poverty around the Divindu area and a little surprised at the obvious development and money being spent around Windhoek. I am not being critical as I am a visitor passing through but I do wonder at the lack of industry and therefore the lack of employment. There is a huge abundance of water in the Caprivi and wonder why it is not harvested and used. The weather was fantastic , the people are a charming gentle race keen to help and almost without exception polite. A very happy holiday.
