Namibia 2019

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 26-Mar-2019 and 6-Apr-2019 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


I was so pleased to work with Expert Africa. The main purpose of our trip was to do the Cape Epic mountain bike race in South Africa, but we wanted to stay and travel for a short time afterwards and had Namibia in mind. I bought the Bradt guidebook, but never having been there I felt lost trying to figure out a realistic itinerary. When the guidebook mentioned the option of using a tour operator to help create a self-driving trip I thought "BINGO!" I called Expert Africa and the rest is history. Megan Green was our Rep. She was a delight -- she had great ideas, and even helped me with flight suggestions even though we were booking our own flights. The process was so easy -- we went back and forth with different ideas, but rather quickly settled on a good itinerary and it all worked out perfectly. Thank you Megan!
