A long trip

On this trip, I visited Namibia & South Africa between 24-Aug-2007 and 3-Oct-2007 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


Overall we had a good trip. The flowers in South Africa were amazing and a very good year to see them, one of the best for many years. There were plenty of whales in Hermanus and the sea was calm. The weather was good in South Africa so all the flowers were open. The accommodation with exception of Springbok was excellent.

The scenery in Namibia is outstanding and quite a lot of the lodges we stayed in are very special and memorable. There was a lot of driving but we coped with that. The government rest camps need to be better run but they are in excellent locations.

Zebra River Lodge was an absolute disaster, both in location and the trip to Sossousvlei but I hope you will take some action on this and return the money for the trip.

We had a great disappointment with Turnstone in Walvis Bay and feel this should be some recompense here too.

I am not sure what happened at the Olive Grove but if we did pay I hope you will refund the 450 dollars.

All the hotels were expecting us and it is very obvious that Expert Africa is very highly thought of and respected, especially in Namibia.

Overall we were treated very well in both countries.

It has been a very memorable trip and will take some time to consolidate.
