My Aug 2010 trip

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 12-Aug-2010 and 30-Aug-2010 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


Overall a fabulous holiday.Very relaxing. A truly stunning country.

In the context of an excellent holiday - a few pieces of feedback

1. I think we should have been recommended a 4x4 car - hadn't realised what the roads were like, and would definitely have appreciated that! We were consistently the only guests at lodges who were in a small car

2. Swokupmund was not worth visiting. .The purpose of our trip was to see the country, not a seaside resort, so we had always seen this as simply a stopover. During the planning of the holiday, we'd pushed quite hard for just a one night stop over there, but Expert Africa had been quite insistent that we would need 2. This was a wasted day, which was disappointing. We should have either been allowed to take the one night, or instead, should have taken 2 separate nights out in the countryside.
Recommendation - try to understand what's important for people's holidays (for us towns were absolutely not important)

3. Palmwag was disappointing
