A Wonderful Introduction to Africa

Namibia between 20 Jul 2017 and 3 Aug 2017

Trip rating: Excellent
"We had the trip of a lifetime, thank you! Everything went to plan. We loved the Safari and we'd happily travel with Wilddog Safaris again. The trip worked well and overall our accommodation was absolutely excellent (including the Windhoek Guesthouse and Swakopmund Hotel Wilddog Safari used). The trip exceeded our expectations.

Wilddog Safari's staff (Raymond & Reuben) were excellent. They were knowledgeable, interesting and hard working. We felt that they really took care of us and did everything they could to give us a great week. The mix of safari and self drive gave us a really balanced holiday."

Cornerstone Guesthouse

Cornerstone Guesthouse

"Cornerstone Guesthouse Review"

1 night Arrived 27 Jul 2017
"We stayed one night at one of Cornerstone Guesthouses' apartments, An der Mole Apartment and it was superb. The wife of the owner who ran Cornerstone was concerned we were late, she escorted us to the apartment and showed us round it and made us feel really welcome. Situated on the seafront, we wish we had had more time to enjoy its beautiful location. The apartment itself was fabulous, with three beautiful bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and an enormous open plan kitchen/ living area. Even in the short time we had there we managed to get a load of washing clean and dried!

The following morning we drove to the Cornerstone Guesthouse for an excellent breakfast.

We would recommend the apartment not only for a stopover, but for a longer stay. You can't do justice to it in only one night!"

Hoodia Desert Lodge

Hoodia Desert Lodge

"Wonderful stay at Hoodia Desert Lodge "

2 nights Arrived 28 Jul 2017
"Hoodia exceeded our expectations. The welcome was so lovely…to be greeted with those iced flannels and chilled tea! The owner and all the staff were so friendly throughout our stay there. It was wonderfully deserted and all the facilities and the food were first class. My husband & I stayed in one lodge and our 3 (adult) sons shared another. The lodges were beautiful and we particularly enjoyed the outdoor showers. The main lodge building was luxurious and welcoming and the suppers and breakfasts were excellent.

We opted to do a fabulous, private day trip to Sossusvlei and the sand dunes, with a very knowledgeable and interesting guide. We left early in the morning and our guide showed us some of the wildlife in the desert…the spiders and the tracks of animals. We climbed 'Big Daddy' and our guide then served a lovely lunch in the shade with a linen tablecloth & fine wine. the day was a high spot of the holiday! We then walked in the canyon at Sesriem."

BullsPort Lodge & Farm

BullsPort Lodge & Farm

"Traditional guesthouse, Bullsport"

1 night Arrived 30 Jul 2017
"We had a lovely walk on our own from Bullsport accompanied by two of their dogs!

The staff at Bullsport was friendly but in comparison to both Hoodia and Corona, the accommodation, and the food were quite basic. It had a very German feel to it."

Corona Guest Farm

Corona Guest Farm

"Our Favourite - Corona Guest Farm"

2 nights Arrived 31 Jul 2017
"We just loved Corona. It was so far from everywhere, it had a lovely feel of former colonial times, and the setting was stunningly beautiful. Each room had a different animal theme, and was spacious, interesting, fun and warm. We loved going for a long walk there, we loved the sundowner 'safari' where we managed to spot a fair amount of wild life, we loved reading on the sun loungers and playing cards by the pool.

Supper was excellent and sociable and breakfast, lunch and tea were equally delicious. The wifi was very patchy, but hey, we were looking for seclusion!

Corona was our favourite and we were pleased that the itinerary gave us a day there to chill out, walk and enjoy their hospitality. We were there for 2 nights and it would have been a great pity to have been there for less (it's a very long drive to get there!). We could happily have stayed longer."

Hilltop Guesthouse

Hilltop Guesthouse

"Convenient Stay at Hilltop Guesthouse"

1 night Arrived 2 Aug 2017
"We were impressed that we were booked into TripAdvisor 's top pick in Windhoek.

We had a great welcome when we arrived. Our rooms were spacious and lovely. Breakfast was probably the best one of the holiday.

It was convenient to eat at Joe's Beerhouse (which we really enjoyed) and downtown Windhoek."
