Absolutely fine, no particular problems, the weather this time was mixed with more than usual in the way of stormy and wet days, which meant ETOSHA had fewer animals around.

My Dec 2014 trip

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Having to arrange this trip to facilitate the places we wanted to stay did cause me think about the extra driving i was taking on but in the end everything worked out fine.

As usual many thanks to Tracy (Sabine for Etango) for all their help.

My Dec 2012 trip

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 11-Dec-2012 and 29-Dec-2012 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

On our return to Namibia after three years it was going to be interesting to see whether anything very much had changed and
we found the real friendlyness of people was still there ,apart from more police speed and document checks!

Overall we really enjoyed our umpteenth trip, my first time driving a 4x4 was a plus.

Well done Expert Africa once again.

My Nov 2009 trip

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 8-Nov-2009 and 24-Nov-2009 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

GoodGood

Because of our fairly late booking some of our first choices were unavailable and thus we had to compromise and shorten our trip this year. Prices in some cases seem to have risen significantly. Some parts of Namibia are now becoming overdeveloped particularly just outside ETOSHA. That said there is still plenty of space to go round!

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

We have always been very happy with the service all the staff at Expert Africa have provided to us over many years now and long may it continue.
