Trip rating: Excellent
"Provided a very well researched and considered experience for the four of us. Good variety of activities and accommodation. All transport and connections worked well. Maruska went to a lot of trouble to design a good trip for us at short notice. Would certainly recommend Expert Africa."

"Great desert camp"

2 nights Arrived 25 Jul 2018
"Remote desert camp among the hills. Very helpful and friendly staff. Can do a few short walks here. Visit to a local village and a separate kindergarten were illuminating. Rough, rocky road in if you drive yourself, so best to leave vehicle at the main road and be ferried in. A great experience overall."

Halali Camp

"Showing age but okay for a night."

1 night Arrived 28 Jul 2018
"A useful stop as it breaks the trip across Etosha National Park. The rooms are a bit old, but liveable. The food in the restaurant was surprisingly good and amongst the best we had anywhere. There was some confusion and much discussion about the cash key deposit system here. They need to change how they handle this.

However, plenty of wildlife to be seen in the Park nearby."

Cheetah View Lodge

"Easy to see cheetahs up close."

1 night Arrived 30 Jul 2018
"Good place to learn about cheetahs, not too far from Windhoek. No activities included, so you need to pay for activities to see much. Could integrate overnight stays with activities better. If you want to see daily (free) cheetah feeding arrive by early afternoon or stay several days."

"Handy to Windhoek and airport"

1 night Arrived 31 Jul 2018
"Good outlook and location. Good dining.

There was no water on tap anywhere in the lodge for a day, which could have become a real problem with no toilet flushing etc and no communication with guests about the situation."

"Very convenient transit hotel"

1 night Arrived 1 Aug 2018
"A convenient transit hotel, but can be hard to find as you must go through the multi-level carpark. An airport porter latched onto us and took us there (for a tip)! Dining was good."

"Good Falls location in Zambia"

3 nights Arrived 6 Aug 2018
"Closest place to stay near Victoria Falls and with it's own wildlife: zebras, baboons, monkeys. Huge swimming pool if you want it. Have a good look at the Zambian side of the Falls from here and then walk over the bridge into Zimbabwe to see from another angle. But you need a visa - preferably get Kaza Univisa when first entering Zambia or Zimbabwe. Also take a short walk up river to David Livingstone Hotel (in the same grounds)."
