Travel reviews by Mr & Mrs R from Newport

The best trip we've enjoyed for many years

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 11-Sep-2015 and 24-Sep-2015 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


The trip exceeded our expectations on all counts, we loved it!

However, you must enjoy driving off tarmac and be OK with being on unmade roads with very little traffic and longish drives. A 4x4 really is worth the extra in terms of comfort and is capable of withstanding the occasional miscalculation on dry riverbed crossings!

The countryside is stunning desert, big and empty - which may or may not be to everyone's taste, but Mad Max Fury Road had inspired us to go. The wildlife was amazing and unforgettable, all the people we met were friendly, knowledgeable and the service we had everywhere we stayed was as good as anywhere we have been in the UK.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

We really don't. The whole booking experience was a joy.
