Travel reviews by Five friends from Amsterdam
Twenty-one lovely days in Namibia & Botswana!
On this trip, I visited Botswana & Namibia between 25-Jul-2009 and 14-Aug-2009 and I travelled with 5 other people.
Very very good. Each lodge had some advantages and some disadvantages, but on the whole they were really good. We had no real problems on the trip and some very good experiences (and animal sightings). It was one long safari, but that was really what we had wanted.
The one contact we had with Wilderness Safaris was good too - through the delay at the airport with the car hire, and the fact that we took one wrong turning on the motorway, we were on course to arrive too late in Waterberg. Wilderness had an emergency phone no and she arranged for the Waterberg gate to stay open, so that problem was solved.
We were also very satisfied with the whole procedure between our first enquiry and the actual trip. Maruska was extremely helpful and efficient, patiently giving us detailed answers to any question we had.
Later, in an email, these travellers added:
"Just to let you know that we've given our feedback. And after finishing it I remembered something we'd forgotten to mention. We said how the tea at Susuwe tasted of coffee. This was also the case at the Garden Lodge and at Kwando (I began to think I'd never get another good cuppa, but at Nxamaseri things changed for the better!)."
