A fantastic adventure
Namibia between 30 Oct 2014 and 17 Nov 2014
Our trip exceeded our high expectations and Expert Africa were extremely helpful when we were fine tuning our itinerary and were very professional in the way they dealt with a problem we had at Hoodia. We hope that you will take our comments about Sinclair Guest Farm on board.
Thank you for helping to make our trip so memorable."
The staff were helpful and professional and were flexible providing us with a light evening meal on arrival and the sandwiches we fancied on our last night."
Erongo Wilderness Lodge
"An unexpected gem"
Mushara Bush Camp
"Gateway to Etosha"
Our tip would be not to bother with a guide because Etosha is totally accessible by self drive and the guide can't take you anywhere that you can't go yourself."
Ongava Tented Camp
"Beautiful camp in beautiful setting"
This camp ticked all our boxes."
"Sleeping under the stars"
The excursion down the dry riverbed in a four wheel drive landrover was an adventure in itself and finding elephants was the icing on the cake. We would have liked another night here."
"Terrace Bay review"
The drive from Damaraland to Terrace Bay was spectacular as was the subsequent drive to Swakopmund along the Skeleton Coast and we are so pleased we included it in our itinerary. Cape Cross to see the seals is a must."
The owners were very helpful and managed to book tables at The Jetty and The Tug restaurants even though it was the weekend. Tip if you want to shop avoid the weekend as most shops close by Saturday lunchtime. The museum is worth a visit."
Hoodia Desert Lodge
"Lovely lodge in the desert"
Our charming guide was very knowledgeable about the unusual wildlife and holding the web of a white lady spider that he had dug up from the sand was incredible. A visit to the largest sand dunes in the world and the dead vlei is not to be missed."
Sinclair Guest Farm, Namibia (this camp has since closed)
"A big disappointment"
We felt that the owner had lost interest and was just going through the motions. We had coffee at the small hotel in Helmeringhausen and wished we had used that as an overnight stop on our way to Fish River Canyon"
Lodge not featured by Expert Africa
Fish River Lodge
"Lodge in breathtaking location"
We chose not to do the guided tour having spent the previous day in the car and did one of the recommended walks around the rim of the canyon and are so pleased that we did."
Bagatelle Kalahari Game Ranch
"Bagatelle Kalahari Game Ranch review"
However we felt this was the most commercial of the places that we had stayed in and the attitude of some of the staff was noticeably worse than we had come to expect during our trip."
