My Dec 2013 trip

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 28-Dec-2013 and 5-Jan-2014 and I travelled with 5 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:


We were extremely satisfied with our trip. It was surprisingly easy to travel around Namibia. It was the perfect combination of adventure and comfort. We saw everything we were after. We enjoyed good food, great weather, friendly people.

We maanged to see rhinos (black and white), giraffes, lions, and loads of other animals. Though I have to say - we cheated a little bit and went for a tour arounf the Anderssons private reserve. On the second day we managed to see some lions, rhino, giraffes in teh Etosha park as well, but it was certainly less concentrated and further away than what we experienced in the private reserve.

We were perfectly satisfied with our car (4x4 Toyota Hilux) which seated the 5 of us very comfortably.

If we were to do this again we'd probably skip Swakopmund.

Thank you Tracy for organising this. It was a brilliant holiday! And we're all looking forwards to coming to Africa again!
