Satisfactory vist to Namibia

Namibia between 16 Jul 2011 and 30 Jul 2011

Trip rating: Excellent
"An excellent trip well arranged and all recomendations were very good. Would use Expert Africa again.

The Toyota Corolla was very satisfactory for this trip, comfortable and economical for three people. A 4wd would have been very nice but probably not worth the extra cost. There were many more 4wd vehicles on the roads than cars however."

1 night Arrived 24 Jul 2011
"Dinner on the night we were there was a "special" barbeque at increased cost over normal and the meat was inedible it was so tough. Other people we spoke to later also commented adversely on the buffet that night.

Otherwise good accomodation but the waterhole is some distance from the accomodation area. There were at least 30 elephants there during the afternoon which made it very worthwhile."

2 nights Arrived 25 Jul 2011
"A beautiful situation but the water hole at the camp was very disappointing. This camp is very remote. However the guide on the excursion into Etosha was very knowledgeable and friendly.

After dark the staff escort guests from their room to the restaurant and lounge at an agreed time but it would be helpful if there were some way of calling reception when you are ready to make it more flexible."

We were given details of activities when we arrived but it would have been useful to have had details of these especially cost in advance to allow for budgeting. Saw cheetah, leopard and wild dogs on activity drives at close quarters."
