Travel reviews by Ludocie from Sheen


Action packed 3 weeks

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 9-May-2019 and 31-May-2019 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Absolutely love Namibia which exceeded expectations as did all the guides.

Highly recommend it because the range of diverse environments is massive, jaw dropping and beautiful throughout. The lodges we stayed at were all very good, with Etendeka the reality check, in it being close to a real tent (!) and Anderssons, Kulala, Goche Ganas off the scale in luxury. Driving 3,000km in a Nissan X-Trail was easy on 80% of the roads but became a challenge on the rougher gravel roads when we had to make a deadline. Astonishingly durable car. Only one puncture, en route to the airport.

We will come back and explore the South next time.
