My Jul 2016 trip

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 4-Jul-2016 and 23-Jul-2016 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


All comments have been made. With regards to my comments on the car hire I realise that that was by far the most common vehicle but maybe you travel agents should put a bit of pressure on them to look at alternative types. If we had had 4 people in the vehicle then their luggage would have been severely damaged by sliding around and being covered in dirt. At the very least there should have been straps provided to hold things in place.

We were very impressed with Wilderness Safaris. As I mentioned they came with us to the car hire place and out to the vehicle and helped us sort both the paperwork and the vehicle checks.
At the end they then took us through the express check in desk thus avoiding a lengthy queue. Excellent service.

All in all a very good trip, even if a little tiring and stressful at times with the driving (but we didn't get a puncture). Frankly I am amazed that you even recommend a standard two wheel drive car over those roads. We saw virtually no other cars like that.

Its an interesting point but you don't actually need the 4WD facility but you do need the ground clearance and chunky wheels/tyres.

Finally thank you for organising the trip, everything worked fine.
