Do we really have to go home?
Namibia between 9 Jul 2008 and 25 Jul 2008
The advice provided was extremely helpful and the descriptions provided on the website and in the Brandt guide were almost universally accurate.
The marked-up route maps were particularly appreciated.
Suggestions for improvement:
Put the bit about plastic bags to protect the luggage from dust in block capitals! We did but some others were less well informed.
Where can you get adaptors which fit the 3 round pin plugs - not everywhere has a European standard alternative?"
For adaptors to fit South African-style plugs, which have three round pins (rather like pre-1970s UK plugs), the electrical shop in Jo'burg airport is usually a good source - if you are passing through there on your way to Africa.

They explained that there is trainee guide at the lodge who doesn’t usually take guests out on his own; but in this case, he did. They have apologized to us, and assure us that they have “already taken steps to ensure that there will be no recurrence in future.”
The guiding at Huab is usually excellent – the owner, Jans, is one of Namibia’s top wildlife guides – and so we are confident that future guests won’t have cause for complaint about the standard of the guiding.
