Namibian safari trip

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 17-Oct-2008 and 31-Oct-2008 and I travelled with 4 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:


This was a holiday of a lifetime. A real experience before Namibia becomes too popular, and nothing can beat meeting 'real' wild animals.

Suggestions for improvement:

The feedback on the web site is very helpful in choosing the right place to stay.

Gwynneth was great for suggesting Mushara outpost rather than staying in Namutoni rest Camp, 3 nights at Namutoni would be a lot less pleasant than 3 nights at Mushara! Mushara was a very comfortable lodge.

I would strongly suggest though that you reccommend 4 wheel drive cars for 4 guests travelling together in future. The cost is a lot more, but we would gladly have paid it for the peace of mind. As you know, areas in Damaraland etc are extremely remote, and I dreaded breaking down there, and it was a real concern for us. At Etendeka we met a couple, also with a Toyota yarris, who were also having a lot of trouble driving on the gravel roads.
