Namibia between 24 Jun 2019 and 4 Jul 2019

Trip rating: Good
"With the exception of Mieke's and Okanjima, I felt the accommodations were overpriced (the Thule Hotel was a bargain, however, I did not make that reservation through EA).

The vehicle was great. I enjoyed the freedom of this self-drive vacation. Saw lots of wildlife and had some good interaction with Namibians apart from in the places we stayed.

We put 2323 km on our vehicle--probably 80% on gravel roads of varying condition. The highlights of the trip were the Cape Cross Seal Colony, the Skeleton Coast, Twyfelfontein pictographs, the Ongava hide, Etosha, and pangolin tracking at Okonjima.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

I am a satisfied EA customer. You do an excellent job of educating your clients.

The attention to detail from first contact through follow up is exceptional.

You can be proud of your organization."

Kulala Desert Lodge

Kulala Desert Lodge

"Overpriced"

2 nights Arrived 26 Jun 2019
"If you enjoy a sewage smell in your expensive room, then Kulala Desert Lodge is your place.

There is no benefit to staying at KDL as regards to getting into the park early. The dunes were swarming with people who had come from Sesriem by the time we arrived."

"Great singing"

1 night Arrived 29 Jun 2019
"We had no water in the camp the morning we left because the elephants had torn out the water line serving the camp. I thought it was great--my wife, not so much.

The staff greeted us with a song then sang several songs for everyone after dinner. I am not given to organized fun, but their three part harmony was excellent. They had obviously practiced a lot and seemed to enjoy giving the performance."

"The Hide"

2 nights Arrived 30 Jun 2019
"The best part about Ongava Lodge is the hide. We got close to black rhinos and giraffes. Great photography opportunity.

Unexceptional staff from the top down."

Okonjima Bush Camp

"Highlight of the trip"

2 nights Arrived 2 Jul 2019
"Okonjima Bush Camp is top rank.

The staff from the top down is exceptional. The food is above average.

Our guide, Denny, is possibly the best guide we have had in 15 trips to Africa.

The architecture and grounds are beautiful. Our room was great."
