My Sep 2019 trip

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 24-Sep-2019 and 14-Oct-2019 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

We really enjoyed this holiday and had may memorable days. Staff at the lodges were all so friendly and helpful. The guides were all very knowledgeable. The self driving although long and dusty always felt safe and easy to navigate.Taking a Cool Bag from home was essential and careful planning of fuel and lunch stops was needed as facilities were few and far between.
