On this trip, I visited Namibia & South Africa between 7-Oct-2019 and 26-Oct-2019 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Excellent. Everything we asked for. This is the third journey that Maruska has arranged for us. We can’t fault her work or the company.

We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Expert Africa to anyone.

Expert Africa feedback

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 7-Oct-2010 and 27-Oct-2010 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

As a whole we were delighted with our trip. It was well organised and Maruska gave us good advice.

Some of the accommodation was below par but mostly it was of excellent quality. We were so pleased that she advised on a larger car, the X-Trail, and that made the travelling pleasant. We felt that 3 nights at Khowarib was a mistake and you could do the half-day Himba visit on the day you leave so we paid for an extra night at Doro Nowas instead.

This was a special retirement trip and it did not disappoint.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Only to take note of the points we raised regarding some of the lodges.
