Trip rating: Good
"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."

Terrace Bay

"Terrace Bay review"

1 night Arrived 4 Jan 2008
"This place is like a run down ex army camp complete with tired mess hall all in need of a great deal of TLC. No fridge, power plugs hanging of the wall etc.

It is not worth the very long journey from Swakop to end up in a place like this. As far as our group was concerned it had no redeeming features."

"Okaukuejo Restcamp review"

4 nights Arrived 7 Jan 2008
"We were booked into a tiny room which would have done for a one night stopover only.

We upgraded for 160N$ a night to a semi-detached bungalow which was excellent. The breakfast was good as was the dinner.

I thought the staff tried very hard to give good food and service."
