Travel reviews by Mr & Mrs H from IOW

A new experience

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 12-Sep-2007 and 7-Oct-2007 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


We found the trip to be very interesting with lots to learn and find.

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.
