fab time lots of work done will go back

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 28-Mar-2008 and 16-Apr-2008 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


i got all work done and loved almost every minute.sceleton coast camp has problems/ wolwedan`s lodges need update but all that is a detail compared with the pleasures and beauty one gets from this journey

Namibia private guided safari section of trip - great guide [paulo] wonderful cook [rodney] they could not have been better.
they made my stay as comfortable as possible under the difficult rainy circumstances but the rains storms very unforgettable and for me a great visual experience. lots of painting under a special little tent that served as an outside studio.

paulo and Rodney were the best and of great help
paulo is very recommendable and he is now training for a national guide position.he deserves lots of attention. very knowledgeable and soft spoken, full of patience and attention to detail. he made my first 6 days extremely productive and creative

the dune world deserve more than a few days and all drives were spectacular at different times of day dawn and dusk

Feedback response

One of these travellers is a professional artist who went to Namibia to paint for his exhibition called ‘Fire and Ice’. Namibia is forming the 'Fire' section of this exhibition.

You can see the gallery of these Namibia pictures here - and enquire to the artist if you’d like to purchase any.
