My Nov 2022 trip

Namibia and 1 other country between 6 Nov 2022 and 26 Nov 2022

Trip rating: Excellent
"Our second trip to Namibia that was arranged by Expert Africa. As before, this was an excellent trip. Our request were accommodated by Tom, and his suggestions for places to stay were excellent.

This trip in addition to Etosha we went along Caprivi Strip with gave us a different set of birds and mammals from our previous trip - the change in habitat was well worth it. The roads along Caprivi were much improved from guide books and many of the pot holed sections had been (or were being) resurfaced. This made travel even easier.

We thoroughly enjoyed this trip, relaxed in the knowledge that everything was arranged and would work - thank so much all at Expert Africa and in Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe."

"This camp site has all the facilities we needed for a comfortable two night stay with our tent.

Amenities were clean and well maintained and staff were helpful and friendly. Two hobs were available for cooking.

Halali Camp

Halali Camp

"Halali Camp review"

1 night Arrived 12 Nov 2022
"Functional camp run by NWR. Convenience is based on the location in the park, and the waterhole.

They appear to ignore the inventory now, which is just as well as many items were missing.

Booked at our request by Expert Africa for location."
