The trip of a lifetime - Namibia is amazing!

Namibia between 28 Dec 2017 and 17 Jan 2018

Trip rating: Excellent
"Exploring Namibia provided an opportunity for a wide range of experiences rarely available in one holiday and Expert Africa provided the perfect mix of extremely comfortable, yet very different, places to stay."

1 night Arrived 29 Dec 2017
"We were a little surprised at the breakfast buffet having been cleared away at 08:25, when we had been told the previous evening that it ended at 09:00. Nevertheless, what we were served was reasonable."

Nest Hotel

"Comfortable & a little more formal than most "

2 nights Arrived 1 Jan 2018
"The clientelle clearly expect a more formal stay at this hotel, which is in a perfect situation on the water's edge. However, we chose to eat out in the evenings, as the restaurant required no shorts etc."

Spitzkoppen Lodge

"Absolutely superb - a 'must stay' experience!"

1 night Arrived 8 Jan 2018
"Do not hesitate in experiencing this relatively new lodge. It is the perfect place for a spiritual boost in the wilderness. We only stayed one night, but would have loved an extra day here for a bit of quiet respite from an otherwise full-on exploration of Namibia. It provides luxury in the great outdoors."

Camp Kipwe

"A great stay in the great outdoors."

2 nights Arrived 9 Jan 2018
"Everything is geared towards ensuring you have a great stay and nothing is too much for the extremely friendly and helpful staff. The the rooms are perfectly situated but can leave you feeling that you are in pizza oven, even though they have air-con. Nevertheless, the game drive we went on (with the local guide, Willy) was one of the best we have ever experienced!"

Okaukuejo Camp

Okaukuejo Camp

"Potential in need of a positive boost! "

2 nights Arrived 11 Jan 2018
"The place is bit run down and clearly has a management that cares little for what are quite disintereted and miserable staff. It is a bit like staying in an old Eastern Block country. This is unfortunate, as the site is well laid out, with comfortable chalets - ours even had a Braai / BBQ pit - and still has the potential to be a top place to stay, with an amazing waterhole."

Halali Camp

"Perfect for exploring most of Etosha"

2 nights Arrived 13 Jan 2018
"Halali Camp is very similar to, but smaller than, Okaukuejo Camp and provides a far better service and overall experience. Unlike Okaukuejo Camp it has a waterhole that attracts not only the full range of game but is far enough away from the rooms and chalets to attract only those with a genuine interest in wildlife and willing to be appropriately quiet!"

Okonjima Plains Camp

Okonjima Plains Camp

"The perfect place to end or start a holiday!"

2 nights Arrived 15 Jan 2018
"This is a top end reserve, with opportunities to encounter wildlife in a way that is second to none. We encountered a large male leopard on the road as we approached the lodge and had an early morning game drive that enabled us both to spend time watching a female leopard feeding in a tree and then playing with her young, and to follow on foot a cheetah and her young - an absolutely amazing experience. The rooms and main lodge building are enormous, modern and luxurious, with unparalleled views across the reserve. Do not miss Okonjima Plains Camp!"
