Travel reviews by Mr & Mrs S from Surrey


On this trip, I visited Botswana, Namibia & Zambia between 3-Oct-2011 and 23-Oct-2011 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


We really enjoyed our trip and all aspects (except those listed in the box below) went smoothly. The folder that contained all the vouchers and key information together was useful.

With hindsight we should have booked accommodation with AC throughout the trip because if you go out early it is valuable to have somewhere cool enough to rest in the heat of the day before going out again in the afternoon. We probably should have worked this out for ourselves but I hadn't expected to want to be in much at midday and had not appreciated how hot tents can get!

We would definitely recommend Namibia at this time of year to any wildlife enthusiasts and your advice helped us to make the most of it.
