A month in 2015

Namibia between 15 Sep 2015 and 15 Oct 2015

Trip rating: Excellent
"If we went back I would go or 3 weeks not 4 and skip the part south of Swakopmond.

Wolwedans not worth the premium. Sossusvlei over-hyped.

Country excellent and the locals very helpful. Stunning scenery.

Africat / Okonjima, Etendeka and Skeleton Coast were highlights

Martha was a star. Shame she's not there any longer."

"The two of us have mixed views. I loved it, my wife was a little less enthusiastic.

Location out of this world. Superb.

Chef needs changing - or 'drying out'

All seems a little haphazard"

Cape Cross Lodge

Cape Cross Lodge

"Cape Cross"

1 night Arrived 2 Oct 2015
"Significantly under-rated. Great hotel which wouldn't be out of place in a smart resort on the Med.

Better to book B&B as accessing the a la carte menu when on DBB takes some discussion.

The a la carte is great.

Nearby seal colony passes a good half-hour, but when you've seen the first 500 you've seen enough."

Wolwedans Dunes Lodge

"Wolwedans. Over-rated."

2 nights Arrived 8 Oct 2015
"Over-rated. Food OK, rooms OK, location good - but that goes for many places in Namibia. Service too intense. Don't bother with the 'sundowner'

The two San guides on the morning walk with the bushmen were both really good.

Tents a bit 'slack' which does not help sleep.

The fixed dinner at 2000hrs was not. By the time everyone arrived and we sat through a comic introduction to the chef it was easily after 2100hrs. Too late.

Wouldn't recommend or return"

Accommodation exceptional. Very tasteful and well built.

Canned cheetahs unnecessary.

Power was on and off constantly."
