My Jul 2010 trip

Namibia between 29 Jul 2010 and 3 Aug 2010

Trip rating: Excellent
"With the exception of the glitches mentioned above our Namibia trip was wonderful. [Ed: this is a reference to the car and flight reservations, mentioned briefly below.]

The lodges we stayed at (especially Mountain Homestead) were beautiful; we felt welcome, comfortable, and well taken care of at each; the hosts and hostesses at Mountain Homestead and Andersson's were charming and very knowledgeable about the areas where their lodges were located and about Namibia in general; the staff members were warm, friendly, and always helpful (Ben at Mountain Homestead, Koolus (sp?) at Erongo Wilderness Lodge and Ramon at Anderssen's Camp deserve special commendation).

The activities planned for us each day gave us a chance to see just what we thought we should see, were neither too many nor too few in number, and allowed us to get some exercise without being overly strenuous or exhausting.

Sabina was a pleasure to work with in planning the trip; she is clearly very knowledgeable about Namibia, had creative ideas throughout, and was extremely responsive to all my queries and requests.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

The problems we had with the car rental and charter flight were not serious, all things considered, but Expert Africa may need to consider making further efforts to confirm and reconfirm arrangements on the ground."

"Mountain Homestead review"

2 nights Arrived 29 Jul 2010
"Ben was a wonderful guide -- very knowledgeable and quite a lot of un. The activities planned for us were neither too many nor too few, and gave us a chance to see just what we had wanted to see. The Sossusvlei sand dunes by themselves were worth going to Africa for; they were even more beautiful than I expected them to be."

Anderssons Camp, Namibia (this camp has since closed)

"Anderssons Camp review"

2 nights Arrived 1 Aug 2010
"Ramon deserves special mention. The hostess was friendly, welcoming and well informed. We were unfortunately a bit disappointed by the wildlife we saw in Etosha National Park; perhaps we should have hired a guide (we did not because of the expense, and because of recommendations in ExpertAfrica's Bradt guide) or maybe we were just unlucky."
