Travel reviews by Mrs S from Surrey

Fabulous trip

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 1-Apr-2017 and 24-Apr-2017 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


Most of the accommodation that Expert had booked was very good although we didn't find the staff, on the whole, as welcoming as we would have expected.

Once at the accommodation, in general, we found assistance with activities poor & some activities were just provision of a driver. We would have been happy to pay for such activities if they took us to places we couldnt get to on our own and offered more educational/informative elements.

However, we loved the country - the scenery was absolutely amazing - so varied and so devoid of people & we saw loads of birds and animals - BRILLIANT !!

Feedback response

These travellers spent the majority of their trip staying in accommodations best suited to self drivers. For the most part properties are convenient locations for those wishing to explore Namibia on their own terms - usually in relatively close proximity to one of the countries main highlights. As a result although most do offer activities, this isn't always their prime focus and hence perhaps some standards were not as high as this traveller expected.
