Travel reviews by Mrs J. from Sussex

1 - 18 October trip overall

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 1-Oct-2018 and 17-Oct-2018 and I travelled with 4 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:


Overall we had a wonderful time and were grateful for the advice, recommendations and help with planning from Expert Africa..

Fuel stations were frequent and mostly took cards by staff at the pumps. The lodges were very well appointed with soap, shampoo, hairdryers, dressing gowns and fridges (not at Grootberg). Not all lodges provided laundry facilities, despite an indication that they would (under exclusions) on the itinerary.

We were travelling with friends who had their own car so bought walkie talkies which were very useful together with a free road map app that my husband downloaded to his phone which didn't need internet and it was invaluable. Highly recommend the app. We drove 2,500 kms, mostly on dirt roads, some better than others.

We thought all the tours (with the exception of Grootberg) were very good value with knowledgeable guides who certainly didn't clock watch. Staff were always helpful and friendly, the food was variable and the wine good quality and value.
