Travel reviews by Mr J from BIggar

A lovely introduction to Namibia

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 22-Feb-2017 and 10-Mar-2017 and I travelled with 4 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:


Excellent in many ways. In retrospect we made two errors. Firstly we should have driven eastwards through Etosha and gone to Mundulea from the north, even if we had arrived a little later than 3.00pm. This would have enabled us to see more of the National Park and avoided going both ways along the B1 to Otjiwaranga. Secondly we should have seen Twyfelfontein in the evening, as we passed the turning, and saved the morning for a game drive at Doro Nawas. This was our mistake.

The dreadful car made driving on rough roads no pleasure.
