The trip of a lifetime!

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 26-Jan-2017 and 11-Feb-2017 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


A truly memorable trip, filled with astonishing beauty, strange and wonderful sights, and warm hospitality. I wish I could do it all over again!

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:
1. The estimated driving times mentioned for our trips from one place to the next were far less than what we actually took. They seemed to be based on the assumption that we'd drive without stopping to look at things, when in fact we drove slowly and stopped often. We quickly learned to double the estimated time to get an accurate sense of how long our drives would take.

2. While the map was very accurate, Okonjima Plains Camp was a bit hard to find (we'd expected it to be closer to the preceding town to the north and kept thinking we'd overshot it and had to stop and ask a roadside workers' gang). Stating the distance in kilometres would have helped.
