My Oct 2015 trip

Namibia between 18 Oct 2015 and 26 Oct 2015

Trip rating: Excellent
"The trip was great and all the arrangements went very smoothly.

The only thing that could have been improved would have been for a room request to have been made for Ongava. Clearly, the best rooms are no 1 & no 2 which look over the waterhole. We did have a front row room (no 5) which had a nice outlook and much better than the upper level rooms, but it would have been even better to look over the waterhole."

"Galton House review"

1 night Arrived 18 Oct 2015
"We were in transit & did not spend long here, but the accommodation was good.

The room (& bathroom) was perfectly nice, clean & with good amenities.

Food was average, but useful that they do serve dinner."

Schoeman's Skeleton Coast Safaris

Schoeman's Skeleton Coast Safaris

"Schoeman's Skeleton Coast Safaris review"

3 nights Arrived 19 Oct 2015
"Fantastic. Totally lived up to expectations (we did this trip on a recommendation from my parents who have done it twice).

Bertus was an excellent pilot, & driver when in the car. The lodges were all good and in excellent locations.

The scenery that we saw was amazing & so varied. So nice to be alone in all that space! Despite my misgivings, the various trips we did down perilous slopes and dunes with Bertus were exilerating.

I would recommend this trip over and over."

Ongava Lodge

"Ongava Lodge review"

3 nights Arrived 22 Oct 2015
"The staff were all very friendly and helpful - some of the best quality we have encountered.

The room was lovely, delightful décor and good facilities. The lodge's waterhole was the icing on the cake - we saw the most phenominal amounts of game morning, noon & night.

Food was fine but could have had a bit more variety (we were there for 3 nights)."
