My Sep 2018 trip

Namibia between 1 Sep 2018 and 15 Sep 2018

Trip rating: Excellent
"Very good indeed - Pretty much as I had planned though the food was much better than expected.

Luderitz was definitely worth a visit.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

One point to note. Contrary to your notes, there is a petrol station at the airport."

Wolwedans Dunes Lodge

Wolwedans Dunes Lodge

"Wolwedans Dunes Lodge review"

3 nights Arrived 6 Sep 2018
"Unfortunately our stay was severely affected by very cold weather and our room was not up to coping with it. I'm sure it's a very nice place to stay if the weather is warmer but with cold weather, we couldn't have the tent flaps open and consequently our room felt very gloomy.

Wolwedans area was very attractive but (not their fault) the weather made a huge difference to our experience there. Our sundowner on the first day was really quite an unpleasant experience, both waiting for the sun to go down and the drive back to the lodge. -Freezing. Two nights would have been sufficient.

The included white wine was poor."

"It was very good but I'm not sure it was worth the significant extra expense though I have not visited the alternative lodges in the area so I cannot be sure."

Very good value."

"GocheGanas review"

1 night Arrived 14 Sep 2018
"It was a comfortable hotel but the game viewings felt a bit like visiting Longleat - slightly artificial.

I would probably opt for a hotel in Windhoek itself as a last night stopover."
