Unforgetable trip

On this trip, I visited Namibia & South Africa between 7-Sep-2007 and 5-Oct-2007 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


This was a very rewarding trip to see so much wild life and the amazing landscape of Namibia. My wife broke her wrist on day 4 at Zebra River but even this hardly detracted from the enjoyment of the holiday. Excellent treatment in Swakomund.

As an experienced owner driver of a 4 x 4 I feel that this is the the type of vehicle needed for most of the terrain encountered. There were occasions where the saloon car did not have the ground clearance or the traction required to negotiate the conditions safely.
