My Oct 2022 trip

Namibia and 2 other countries between 30 Oct 2022 and 13 Nov 2022

Trip rating: Excellent
"Our trip involved a lot of travelling with complicated logistics and pick-ups/transfers etc and without exception it was all excellent. Extremely well organised.

All flights in small planes were great and lodges in Botswana and Namibia were small, clean, comfortable with extremely friendly staff.

Great 2-weeks! Thanks Expert Africa for organising!"

Great holiday

Namibia between 17 Dec 2009 and 5 Jan 2010

Trip rating: Excellent
"Excellent throughout, well organised and lovely lodges/hotels - except overnight at Joburg airport hotel

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Excellent brochure - Nice to have a brochure with good quality maps rather than simplistic illustrations."

Doro Nawas

"Doro Nawas review"

3 nights Arrived 20 Dec 2009
"- Dinner only after 8pm was rather late.
- It would have been nice to have a quiet room with internet access (agree it should not disturb guests but if you are going to attract business people......)

-West facing room was very hot indeed at about 4pm!
- At Etosha and Serra Cafema excursions were included in the price - but not at Dowa Nawas. Why? I thought excursions were rather expensive. But the guide was very good (Richard).

But a lovely place.....and people"

Airport Grand Legacy Hotel

"Airport Grand at Joburg airport"

1 night Arrived 29 Dec 2009
"- A real disappointment - we waited 70 minutes for the hotel-airport transfer bus to arrive.
- the barman was sourly and, frankly, rude
- the business centre computor was riddles with viruses.........and this is meant to be a conference hotel!

Why not use the Southern Sun (not Garden Court) near O.Tambo airport instead - it is well priced and frankly far nicer - bigger rooms, far better restaurant, and nicer

This hotel was really the only negative on a great trip"
