Travel reviews by Mrs E & family from UK


Very special place, Namibia.

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 9-Jul-2019 and 20-Jul-2019 and I travelled with 4 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Utterly vast and alternately dotted with German cakes and rhino. That's Namibia. The people are lovely. The scenery staggering.

We went thinking we were going on holiday and returned realising we'd experienced the trip of a lifetime. A cliche I know but it's warranted in this case.

Make sure you've got a good set of wheels if you are travelling around (the investment in a Toyota Hilux/Ford Ranger or similar is worth it) and pray that the drought breaks soon. It's a tough and beautiful land.
