Namibia Revisited to Victoria Falls

Namibia and 1 other country between 11 Feb 2010 and 4 Mar 2010

Trip rating: Excellent
"It was a wonderful trip. We were aware that we were not doing this trip at an ideal time of the year, but, it enabled us to see a different side to Namibia having exprienced the South and the deserts previously this was totally different.

We found the driving along the Caprivi Strip rather monotonous, but, it certainly gave us a feeling of being the real Africa with the small Villages along the way and cattle, goats and children scattered in the road until the occasional car/lorry approached. Everyone we stopped to speak to were friendly and happy to communicate with us.

It was interesting that apart from Waterberg all the other lodges we stayed at were on islands which again made it very different to our last visit and allowed us to see the wild life of the rivers and wetlands.
The Victoria Falls was our highlight which we wanted it to be.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:
No. This is our 2nd trip with you and we would highly recommend you to all our friends and family."

Waterberg Camp

Waterberg Camp

"Waterberg Camp review"

2 nights Arrived 15 Feb 2010
"We were not impressed by the attitude of the reception desk on first arrival, but, as they got to know us this improved. Otherwise, everyone in the restaurant was very friendly and helpful and the food was good.

We enjoyed the views overlooking the Kalahari from the restaurant balcony. The rooms altho' basic were clean and comfortable - it was nice to have the use of a fridge and to be able to make ourselves the odd cup of tea or coffee.

We enjoyed our walk up to the plateau and the walks were well signposted."

Mazambala Island Lodge, Namibia (this camp has since closed)

"Mazambala Island Lodge review"

2 nights Arrived 20 Feb 2010
"We were very disappointed with this lodge.

The local people were friendly and helpful and the one guided tour we did ( Nature walk ) the guide was very knowledgable and we learnt a lot. Samantha - I presume was the undermanager - tried hard,but, the manager was nonexistent most of the time and totally unsuitable for the job in the absence of the owner.

In fact the atmosphere was non existenet - I know that this is a quiet time of the year for them, but this should not mean that the person in charge does not make himself known and introduce himself to his customers!

Is it right that a lodge of this rating and price should be left in sole charge of a 24 and 20yr old? We would not recommend this lodge to anyone. I would like to think we were unfortunate and that things will change in the future. The swimming pool was dirty."

Sindabezi

"Sindabezi review"

3 nights Arrived 22 Feb 2010
"This was certainly the highlight of our tour. We were treated like royalty. The staff on the island were so friendly,helpful and full of fun.
Vicas made delicious meals for us and I am sorry I did not buy the book by Chris Higgins.

Brian and Lawrence made excellent guides and enlarged on many aspects of the wild life that we were unaware of before. I only hope I will be able to retain it as well as they have done!

We always felt that each journey we made to Tongabezi and the main land was another guided tour and many times I am sure they took us a long way round to ensure we saw as much as possible.

Charles made an excellent Valet and Nature lokked after us well at the table. They were always very willing to sort us out when help was needed! Granted, this is a quiet time of the year for the lodge, we felt very priviledged to have been there on our own and to experience such a wonderful setting and surroundings.

All the activities were numerous and varied we feel we could have stayed for a lot longer to investigate further.

My only criticism , and probably my own fault entirely, was that I bought 15 stamps for postcards for Europe from reception and the Receptionist said not to worry that she would put the stamps on and send them off with other mail from the office,but, so far (3wks later) not one has been received! I only put this in as I think this shpuld be brought to the attention of other guests to stick their own stamps and post them themselves, which we could have done that same morning.

We would love to come back with our family some time and take over the whole island!! Perhaps a Special Occasion! We will certainly recommend it to our friends."
