A great adventure in Namibia

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 13-Jul-2008 and 30-Jul-2008 and I travelled with 3 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:


This really was a super trip - not cheap, but your recommendations were all good and the accommodation and services surpassed expectations.

We though it was a great experince and just wish we had a bit more time. Howevr, I'm sure we'll be back before long to explore other parts of the country and Botswana as well.

We enjoyed the Sefofane flights (and could not have done the trip in the time without them), but it was also nice to do some driving ourselves which allowed us to stop in real towns and interact with real people - just flying between luxury lodges for a whole trip would give a rather limited experience of the country.

Suggestions for improvement:

Not really - we were overall very pleased and impressed with the trip you had arranged for us, based on my initial rather vague thoughts.
