My Apr 2018 trip

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 18-Apr-2018 and 4-May-2018 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


We have described it to others as 'a total experience' as distinct from purely a 'holiday'. We knew we were on a long distance trip and apart from thorough 'African massage' therapy on the roads, we were always alert to our surroundings, and often rewarded, on our drives. The choice of accommodations was varied and fitted well your conservation/ecology driven underlying principle.

Interestingly many we spoke to did the same tour only clockwise, but we felt the reverse suited us better. Also, when we questioned some of the directions we were given we found they worked well when reversed!

Whilst we missed out on elephants and did not take every activity going, we had a well-balanced tour on which we had choices as to how to spend our time, and enjoyed taking ourselves on one or two adventures. The guides we had were without exception professional, informative, knowledgeable and thoughtful.

Thank you
