Wonderful... Beats UK in February!
Kenya between 26 Feb 2019 and 12 Mar 2019
We were especially impressed by the cheerful helpfulness of all the Kenyan people we met, in all the places we stayed- and in between.
Plus- the weather was perfect...."

Namibian Adventure 2017
Namibia between 9 Feb 2017 and 28 Feb 2017
Rather disappointing that Hoanib was the only camp that provided any educational/informative element- a very good film on the desert lions and a lecture by a visiting bat researcher!
More of that sort of thing would have much appreciated- especially where we stayed three nights in one place, (Most camps seem to be geared to two-night stays) Would have very much liked to know more about the different tribes etc- which we finally did on our last day at the National Museum in Windoek , which has seen better days, but is still very interesting.
We loved the ability to get away into some unspoilt and spectacular county -and avoid crowds of tourists. The exception to that was Sossusvlie, where there were far too many people and traffic .... a bit of a shock after the tranquility of Etendenka!
We worry that Namibia is about to OD on tourism and lose its unique appeal....."
