Our first visit to Namibia

On this trip, I visited Namibia & Zimbabwe between 21-May-2016 and 6-Jun-2016 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Lived up to, and in many ways exceeded our expectations. Stunning, often remote desert scenery and ever-changing landscapes. Super, comfortable, imaginative lodges in some exceptional settings, staffed by really friendly, well trained and helpful people.

Some memorable experiences and excursions with knowledgeable, professional guides at sensible prices.

All the Expert Africa arrangements worked perfectly, and your descriptions of lodges, activities etc were accurate and realistic. We were particularly impressed by the Wilderness Safari lodges and their people. No anxieties or disappointments whatsoever. Sabina was helpful and knowledgeable, but never 'pushy' - which was one factor which swung us towards you and away from another operator.

Would certainly recommend you, just as you were recommended to us by a friend.
