My Sep 2010 trip

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 15-Sep-2010 and 1-Oct-2010 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


This was a fantastic trip - we really enjoyed ourselves. We saw and experienced so much - we loved the Namib desert, the desert elephants and Etosha Park. We really enjoyed driving ourselves around the country. Everyone was so friendly and the Namibians make tourists feel so welcome.

It is a fantastic country with so much to offer - we liked the emphasis on eco friendly and sustainable tourism.

We have returned home really relaxed and envigorated from all the experiences with nature.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

We would like to thank you for organising such an excellent trip for us. The accomodation you chose was very good and mostly excellent. The maps and directions were very helpful and meant we never got lost! Any queries we had were handled promptly and efficiently. We would highly recommend Expert Africa to friends and family - the service you gave us was most professional and while we were travelling independently we always felt that your professional advice was only a phone call away if we needed it - which is a great back-up and support when you are holidaying in a country very remote from your own home.

The information you gave us on the 200 rand notes was extremely helpful as the bank here in Ireland tried to give us 200 rand notes and had not been aware of any problem with them - and we read in a newspaper in Namibia that they were not acceptable and even newly printed 200 rand notes were not being accepted by some buisnesses.
