A really great holiday

Namibia between 14 May 2010 and 5 Jun 2010

Trip rating: Excellent
"A wonderful holiday that reached all expectations. Our criticisms are picking on the points that were average amongst all the other good or excellent features of the holiday.

The Tok Tokkie Trail, the sand dunes and the game in Etosha were the highlights.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

No
It all went well."

Kulala Wilderness Camp, Namibia (this camp has since closed)

"Kulala Wilderness Camp review"

2 nights Arrived 18 May 2010
"Welcoming and good location to see the dunes.

Arrived at Dune 45 as the sun rose - too many people already there, and we had missed much of the spectacular skies before sunrise.

Suggest set off from Kulala camp earlier, and make for a more isolated dune from which to view the sunrise."
