Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:
Advice on where to buy pulas was not good. Windhoek airport does not stock pulas in any of the three exchanges. Bank in Namibia (4 tried) also don't sell pulas. Finally bought them in Botswana at Barclays. Other point is that Windhoek airport exhanges do not take travellers cheques."
We're sorry this trip seemed 'hard work' - this driving itinerary through Namibia and Botswana, and back to Windhoek, was certainly a long long route. We'd always advise anyone thinks of this route that it's a long way, driving across the Kalahari can be quite a slog - and there isn't a wide choice of accommodation on it. This probably wasn't helped by the fact that these travellers were feeling under the weather for duration of their trip.
We did seek advice on the Pula, and indeed talked to a contact at Windhoek Airport in order to advise these travellers about the availability of Pula. We're really sorry that the advice that we received, and passed on, wasn't accurate.

We also chatted with this traveller to find out about the room complaints ... and the only issue that they could put their finger on was that they were not happy with a two-inch gap under the door to the chalet.
Justine apologised that this travellers' stay coincided with a group of very keen fishermen, who took up a lot of staff time and attention. She admits that none of this is an excuse for the poor breakfast, and as a result of this feedback they now have two front-of-house staff on permanently.
