Brilliant holiday - diverse country

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 4-May-2018 and 23-May-2018 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


We found Namibia to be easily the best of all the dozen or so countries we have visited in Africa with such varied landscapes as well as the wildlife and friendly people.

Having made thorough research before booking, we were so pleased that we were able to include visits to the south of the country which is not always on the typical itinerary. We especially enjoyed the exciting journey down into Fish River Canyon and the ghost mining towns of Kolmanskop and Elizabeth Bay and were so grateful that advanced permits had been arranged for our visits.

Our driver/naturalist/guide Tim Smith was excellent and we are so appreciative that our request for a photographer was able to be met as he had such a good eye for photographic opportunities. We had a great time in his company, he was the perfect host with all the knowledge one could ever wish for and the same sense of humour as ourselves.

There was an issue with the scenic flight at Swakopmund and we have contacted you separately about this already.
We are hopeful that a resolution is shortly to be concluded.

Feedback response

We are delighted that these travellers had great trip overall and are happy to say the problem they had with the light aircraft flight that they booked locally themselves has been resolved to their satisfaction.
