Travel reviews by Mr R & Mrs M - Cape Namibia and Bots


AFRICA 18 February and March

On this trip, I visited South Africa between 21-Feb-2018 and 24-Mar-2018 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Another very successful trip to Africa. It was all a very interesting experience but it was so different from the Africa of further north with which we are very familiar.

We enjoyed everything, but the one thing that stands out is the charm, the efficiency and the helpfulness of all the staff everywhere. Well done South Africa! Come here and teach us a lesson.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

well done Tracy keep up the good work !

On this trip, I visited Botswana, Namibia & South Africa between 31-Jan-2017 and 11-Mar-2017 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Great trip with a great variety of lodges. Twenty one stops in total .

Very enjoyable and effortless driving between lodges. We covered 5,000 km in the rainy season with no problems. The twin cab Ford Ranger was perfect.

The following will be especially remembered
Dabis for the interest and the enthusiasm of the owner
Wolverdans for the situation and for the charm of Thelma
Vreugde for the friendliness of the family
Mundulea for everything about it
Nhoma for the humour of the bushmen
Ngoma for the lodge its situation and management
