The trip of a life-time
Namibia between 12 Sep 2019 and 1 Oct 2019
We saw and understood much more by having our own guide than we would have done if we had guided ourselves. We were spared the problems of driving on relatively poor roads and the anxiety of coping with possible punctures and breakdowns.
With hindsight we wonder whether it was worth the very long journey to Fish River Canyon. Yes it was amazing but unless you have arranged to walk the canyon, you see only a limited part of it from the rim.
We also wonder whether an entire day at a diamond mine that wasn't working was worth the bother.
Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:
We think that your organisation and service was fantastic. Well done and thank you."

The response from the Nest Hotel:
‘Thank you for posting your feedback on your stay at our award-winning four-star hotel directly on the rocks and the sea with its own private tidal beach and walk-on jetty – unique in Namibia. I am pleased that you found our service and food offerings good. The vast majority of our guests love our “on the rocks and sea” location. During the last five years, we have carried out a N$Multimillion renovations programme which has attracted highly positive feedback. All our beds are extra-long (2.0metres/6ft6”). Our outdoor heated swimming pool is always open but due to intense evaporation, we have a pool cover installed which can quickly be removed. (two notices around our pool advising our guests to ring a bell that is connected to our Reception).
Please take note: Lüderitz is the founding “mother city” (1883) of Namibia and is rich in German Art Nouveau architecture and is included in leading and reputable tour operator Namibia programmes. Furthermore, the average length of stay is two nights in order to enjoy the many tours and attractions on offer.’
