Travel reviews by D & D from Cork

Wonderful experience

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 9-Oct-2016 and 22-Oct-2016 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


We enjoyed our trip immensely. This was our first time in Namibia and we were so impressed by the country and its people. The variety of places to visit and things to do was great. The organisation from Expert Africa was second to none and ensured that everything went smoothly.

Overall the standard of accommodation far exceeded our expectations (with the exception of The Beach Hotel Swakopmund which was acceptable and Halali camp as outlined above). I know that because of the unexpectedly busy tourist season in Namibia we were a bit stuck for places to stay and this is understandable.

We took a kayaking trip with Jeanne in Walvis Bay as recommended in the guidebook and this was really excellent - she was a great guide.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

We were completely happy with the service provided and will have no hesitation in recommending Expert Africa to friends and family.
