Wonderful Namibian Holiday

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 26-Apr-2017 and 25-May-2017 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

We had a wonderful trip, we really enjoyed our slow drive around Namibia. Claire fulfilled all our requests for specific rooms (i.e. far from main areas, with good views) as well as booking us a balloon trip in Sossussvlei and the best table at The Jetty in Swakopmund. All our expectations were met.

2 points which will be useful: 1) There are no longer ATM's in Etosha, and petrol stations do not take cards. You have to arrive in Etosha with enough cash.

2) Nam $ 3000 in cash was stolen from a hotel safe - luckily our passports and credit cards were not taken. Best to keep cash and cards with you at all times. Of course this could happen anywhere in the world, it's just in Namibia we were carrying more cash than usual.

Trip to Ruaha (4 camps) + Zanzibar

On this trip, I visited Tanzania & Zanzibar between 6-Aug-2014 and 23-Aug-2014 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

James Denny did an excellent job organising our trip. We asked for quiet accommodation, and we got it at all camps.

All transfers went absolutely smoothly apart from a slight glitch at Zanzibar airport where Eco & Culture were late to pick us up. (Our plane had arrived late) However they were very apologetic, and were in good time to take us back to the airport at the end of our stay.

Overall we have been very impressed with Expert Africa and won't hesitate to contact you for our next holiday.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Very Happy with Service
