A completely underrated country. Visit now!

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 9-Nov-2013 and 21-Nov-2013 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


Namibia is an incredible country, and I can't imagine anyone not enjoying it. I had very high expectations for this trip, and they were exceeded. The range of scenery was mind-blowing. The country is safe and the people were very friendly. I have recommended this country to so many friends and colleagues. It has something for everyone. I don't understand why there are not more people visiting! Though, selfishly, I am happy they are not - it was incredible having so much open space to ourselves.

In retrospect, we wish we had further two nights in Etosha. We just didn't expect to see the amount of wildlife we did. Two nights in another part of the park would have been ideal. And probably four nights in Damaraland was too much. Though, both places were completely different, so I am not sure what I would have cut out!

We only went to Swakopmund for the kayaking, and I am glad we only stayed the one night. There really is not a lot to do/see in town in our view.

Even though it was the hot season, the dry temperature made it bearable, and it didn't feel like 40 degrees.
