My Sep 2018 trip

Namibia and 1 other country between 7 Sep 2018 and 4 Oct 2018

Trip rating: Excellent
"Overall an excellent trip which showed off the diversity of Namibia

The only aspect of the trip that was poor was Windhoek airport - a disaster area with no concept of care for travellers - particularly immigration Not a good advertisement to encourage travellers!"
