Great Namibian holiday, would like to return
Namibia between 19 Aug 2015 and 3 Sep 2015
Wouldn't have liked to do more driving though, so we missed out most of the country which we will have to visit again. Would have been useful to know rough driving times between camps. I didn't realise the gravel roads were yellow on map until it was too late!
I think would also have preferred to miss out Windhoek completely, Olive Grove was nice but it felt to me as if the holiday hadn't really started until we moved on.
Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:
Sabina was so helpful, we went through a few itineraries before I realised what sort of trip we were looking for and she made some great suggestions that I hadn't seen on the website. It was wonderful to correspond and talk to her, she was extremely knowledgeable and efficient and I really did appreciate her."

Desert Rhino Camp
"The most wonderful place to stay"
"Nothing special at Huab Lodge"
When our travellers visited Huab, the lodge was fully booked and they had three families with young children staying. The lodge explained that although it is the busy season it’s unusual for them to have so many families staying at the same time. The lodge is very sorry that this overbooking impacted our traveller’s stay and will ensure that this situation will not happen again.
Huab confirmed that there had been an initial misunderstanding about the room allocation for our travellers and they tried to make amends by allocating them their honeymoon suite. However in hindsight this was not such good compensation because this was a family booking, and as such wanted rooms close together. They apologise for this oversight.
With regards to the drinks and laundry prices, Huab have taken these comments on board and were sorry if the travellers felt ill-informed or uncomfortable.
