Namibia Sept 2017

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 21-Sep-2017 and 5-Oct-2017 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


Our expectations of the trip were either met or exceeded, It is a great country to visit still largely unspoilt, and I hope that it remains so. The scenery and the wildlife are stunning. Having seem some of the other modes of visiting the country I think that self drive is best even the sand and gravel roads are an interesting way to get about (including the C35 and D854 !!) and it is good to drive on uncongested roads for a change.

The itinerary was well balanced with a mix of accommodation and locations offering different alternatives. We met a mix of visitors from different countries, and Namibia has it own special feel to it reflecting its history and development, and I think this all adds to the holiday experience.

I would just like to say a big thank you to your ground agents Wildlife Safaris particularly the lady at their airport office who was exceedingly helpful and also to their staff on the emergency line who responded to our call on the 28th Sept.

This was a memorable holiday.
