Our Namibia Trip 2019

On this trip, I visited Namibia & South Africa between 2-Apr-2019 and 15-Apr-2019 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


Many people see Namibia by fly-driving. We didn't want to spend long hours on the road (Namibia is a big country!) and since we had enjoyed travelling previously on Rovos Rail a rail safari seemed to tick all the boxes. We think our trip as a whole was a balance of luxury travel with well organised excursions and we came home with some lovely memories.

The wildlife, and especially birdlife, is magnificent. Our days before and after the train were also well organised and enjoyable and we can thank suggestions from Expert Africa for that.
