My Jul 2015 trip

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 26-Jul-2015 and 15-Aug-2015 and I travelled with 3 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

We love travelling in Namibia. The landscapes, the emptiness, the never ending points of interest and the feeling of being a welcome guest in a happy and well adjusted stable African country makes it a special place. To be able to eat game was a delight after Zambia, but then the German style breakfasts fail to hit the heights of a Zambian breakfast so ... But it's not all about the food!

Thank you Tracy and Expert Africa. You put together a fantastic holiday rather late in the day. It was perfectly paced and suited us absolutely. Whilst the internet may work for some holidays, the local knowledge you combined with a genuine interest in, and understanding of, what we wanted to achieve was invaluable and so much appreciated.

A wonderful 50th birthday celebration!

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 17-Jul-2011 and 1-Aug-2011 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

It was a very enjoyable and happy trip that lived up to or exceeded our highest expectations!

We were surprised that there was no game meat and if we have one comment to all the camps it would be that they should serve less "safe European" and more local food (especially game meat). Also whilst the service was always very efficient perhaps at times it could be a bit more relaxed, especially when there are only a small number of guests?

My wife was particularly grateful for all the hot water bottles!

Thank you Claire and all involved!

My Aug 2008 trip

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 7-Aug-2008 and 21-Aug-2008 and I travelled with 4 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Greatly appreciated the help of Sabina (and her colleagues if she was ever out of the office).

Our holiday was absolutely brilliant with many magical memories to treasure. We loved Namibia - the friendly people we met everywhere and the scenery which was stunningly beautiful. We felt safe and secure at all times.

Having never been to Namibia before we read what we could and planned an outline of a trip but needed "expert" help to pull the holiday together and get the most out of it whilst ensuring that we never had drives that were too long or demanding to be safe. Thanks to your help our holday was the success it was.
