A new experience
Namibia between 12 Sep 2007 and 7 Oct 2007
Namibian peoplewe met are a delight to talk to and be with. They are proud of their country and are very knowledgeable. They are keen to learn and are most welcoming and helpful. There is a lot to see and the accommodations are excellent. We have now seen all the big five game and were thrilled to see game at close quarters.
Distances are long and tiring, as are the gravel roads. Careful consideration of vehicle to use is important and we feel 4x4's are essential for peace of mind. Organisation of the trip was generally very good and we enjoyed the experience."

Kulala Desert Lodge
"A dune experience"
As the result of their experiences this year, the Wilderness team (who run Kulala Desert Lodge) tell us that they are in the process of replacing all their 'open' vehicles at their camps in the Sossusvlei area with 'closed game drive' vehicles. This will obviously take time, but when they're all changed it'll help our travellers to avoid being quite so sand-blasted when the winds are high!
There's also been a new management couple installed at Kulala Desert Loge, Darryl & Elaine. We're optimistic that they will improve the lodge's standards even further, and are keeping a keen eye on our traveller's comments - particularly about the food!
