Travel reviews by Longclaws from Edinburgh

Main objectives achieved

On this trip, I visited Namibia & Zambia between 28-Dec-2007 and 17-Jan-2008 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


Enjoyed the holiday. Well organised. Etosha was outstanding. Victoria Falls was majestic. Apart from Terrace Bay hotels were good to very good. Apart from Sams Giardino the food was rarher ordinary with little choice in some cases.

On occasions the distances for driving were rather long and tedious. Surfaced roads wre good with little fraffic. Graveled roads varied from good where recently graded to awful with rather more of the latter than former. Return journey was a nightmare.
