My Nov 2013 trip

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 8-Nov-2013 and 25-Nov-2013 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


In all, our trip was more wonderful than we had anticipated. The country is just beautiful and we almost invariably found our interactions with lodge staff and other encounters very friendly and helpful. We found the Namibian people to be so soft spoken and gentle and attentive without being obsequious .

The lodges were very clean, well run and some beautifully designed. Driving was easy (amazingly few cars on the road), the roads well marked and the parks organized nicely for self driving. In my ratings of the various accommodations I was grouping B&Bs and lodges separately in my mind and not comparing them so that an excellent in a B&B would have no bearing on the same rating in a lodge.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Your service and help was excellent and could not be improved upon. The one suggestion, however, would be to focus a bit more on the activity level desired by your clients. We would have enjoyed a more physically demanding trip, i.e. more hiking and less driving.

Unquestionably we were fortunate to have hooked up with Expert Africa. Thank you again and again.
