Travel reviews by Mr & Mrs Y from Ponteland

Flying Chilli Peppers from Newcastle

On this trip, I visited Botswana & Namibia between 8-Aug-2008 and 25-Aug-2008 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


An action packed , superb holiday with plenty of opportunities to see landscapes, plants birds and animals and take loads of photos. Perhaps we should have built in a little more relaxation!

I enjoyed working out availiability with Susannah via email as we didn't book holiday until March and some camps were unavailable.

Our experience was that the vast majority of birds and animals were seen on the game drives and very little seen on the water. We realised how vital good guiding is to the whole experience.

Nambia and Botswana guideline booklets were very useful
