Travel reviews by Mrs C. from Shrewsbury


Excellent trip altogether

On this trip, I visited Botswana & Namibia between 16-Dec-2017 and 13-Jan-2018 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

This was a very well planned & well thought out trip, Sarah was so helpful in explaining what would work & what wouldn't, she explained she thought some of the drives would be too long in one day, which were the best places to spend more than one night etc. She certainly knew her stuff!

Our mistake perhaps was trying to do so much in 28 days, we could have done with a couple of 3 day breaks as we got very tired with so much chopping & changing.

Also when trying to stipulate & stick to our budget we ended up with a lot of the venues with only B&B & not half board which meant that overall we ended up spending a lot more than we had planned.

I stayed at and have reviewed:
