Travel reviews by Mr LeenP from Lewes

Our October trip

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 2-Oct-2019 and 23-Oct-2019 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


Apart from some minor glitches, we had a great trip in a beautiful sparsly populated country with friendly people. We would like to come back to visit other parts of this amazing country. One of the difficulties we faced was travelling long distances on the gravel roads as our rental vehicle was not the best 4x4 in existence.

We also felt that the itinerary around Etosha was not well advised given that we travelled around the park twice and across it once. it would have been much better to advise us to stay outside of the park at the western and central gates and done two or three day trips. We would have seen just as much without the hours and discomfort of additional travel.

We found the itinerary information provided very useful to follow eg estimated hours of the journey, though some details and advice need updating..

Overall it was a fantastic holiday in a great country

Feedback response

We agree with these travellers, in an ideal world we would not normally structure the order of the camps around Etosha in this way. Unfortunately availability was limited and this is what was possible at the time.
