Do we really have to go home?

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 9-Jul-2008 and 25-Jul-2008 and I travelled with 4 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:


Our best holiday for a very long time, exceeding our expectations in almost every area.

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?

Feedback response

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.
