Travel reviews by Mrs B - family from UK


This was one of our best holidays ever

On this trip, I visited Namibia & Zimbabwe between 14-Jul-2019 and 2-Aug-2019 and I travelled with 4 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

.. - it was hectic - we had 3 weeks available and wanted to include the Caprivi Strip and Victoria Falls in our itinerary as well as Sossusvlei, Damaraland and Etosha, so we knew we would have to spend a lot of time driving. However it was absolutely worth it - all the arrangements put in place by Sabina and the Expert Africa team worked well and we found we had enough time to relax and enjoy the various places where we stayed - some of these places were very special but all of them had something different to offer.

Everywhere we went the people were really kind and helpful. We are particularly pleased that we made the time to visit the Caprivi Strip - it is so different to the rest of Namibia with people living a communal life in traditional African villages.
