Namibia & Botswana 2008

On this trip, I visited Botswana & Namibia between 17-Oct-2008 and 11-Nov-2008 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


Our trip was superbly organised and the assistance that we received with our planning was first class. The trip ran very smoothly and was stress free. We were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the gravel roads in Namibia and found the whole of our Namibian experience very fulfilling. It was very varied and our choice of time of year meant that we saw far more than we could possibly have hoped for in Etosha.

After that Botswana was a slight anti-climax and appeared very over-priced by comparison with what we had experienced in Namibia. With the benefit of hindsight we also felt that 9 days of game drives was too repetitive.

Our poor experience at Kwara we feel was entirely due to the poor manager and housekeeper and could not have been foreseen by Expert Africa.
