A long phot trip to Etosha

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 13-Sep-2017 and 29-Sep-2017 and I travelled with 4 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

The trip was very productive from a wildlife viewing and photographic point of view.

I was concerned at the state of many of the park roads which seem to be getting worse. If you have to constantly watch the road surface it makes game viewing more difficult.. Again, there seem to be increasing numbers of noisy large coaches/trucks which have a detrimental effect on the animals. facilities etc.

I would like to see indep. tour operators tackle the park service about this and also get them to improve the management of lodges within the park.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Try and persuade the vehicle hire companies to get their act together. They are still the weak point in any visit to Namibia.
