A memorable holiday

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 22-Oct-2008 and 14-Nov-2008 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


The holiday more than lived up to our expectations. The accommodation in most cases was excellent and the extra excersions we had booked through Expert Africa were all well worth doing.

Namibia is a very interesting and diverse country and we would like to think that we will have the opportunity to return and visit the parts we didn't have time to do this trip.

We drove over 2500 miles and were glad that we had been advised to have 2x all terrain vehicle. The gravel roads we drove for the majority of the time were not as good as we had been led to believe by the guide books. People we met who had "normal" saloon cars all said they were struggling.

A 4x4 is not necessary but the extra ground clearance of our Hyundi Tuscan was an advantage.

In our exprience the service of Expert Africa helped us plan just the holiday we wanted.
