“A wonderful experience”

Augustinus has excellent knowlege of animals and his country. No request denied - happy personality. In fact he made our trip a wonderful experience.

“Very good guide! ”

Charles knows about all (little) animals, culture, history and is full of humour. Paulus was a great help and a good cook!

“I left my heart in Namibia”

Got back in Greece few days ago but I left my heart in Namibia.

Everything was perfectly organized and I wish to thank you a lot for everything. I'll be back in Namibia, that's for sure. Nice people, beautiful scenery and amazing wildlife.

Thanks for everything, you will organize my next trip in Africa - and Namibia of course - too.

“A fantastic experience”

I just wanted to thank you once again for all the time and effort you put into making our holiday in Namibia such a fantastic experience and give you a bit of feedback. You have a very beautiful country and we found the people very friendly and helpful too. We were clearly expected at all the places we stayed at, and made to feel very welcome. Etendeka Mountain Camp was truly one of the highlights for us, and we also enjoyed visiting Sossusvlei and Etosha. All the accommodation in Namibia was very good, and if we had to pick one that stood out from the rest it would probably be the Etosha Safari Lodge for luxury and Etendeka for the experience.

“It was great ”

We enjoyed all visited sites. We appreciated all details and informations given by our tour guide about landscapes, people and animals. Augustinus' knowledge about birds was impressive. It was also great to see all the "highlights" of Namibia during 2 weeks in this order.

“Edward helped me from day one”

I heard about Africa Tours & Safaris through a friend and I was greatly surprised by the quality of its services. Edward helped me from day one with my tailor-made holidays, and suggested new ways and ideas to optimize my time and money. Thanks to his advises we drove through Botswana, Zimbabwe and Zambia with a limited budget and with as few as 5 days. I highly recommend Namibia Tours and Safaris for your next holidays planning: you can expect an answer from their consultants in a few hours, they deal with companies all over Southern Africa, and their commission is very little

“A very good guide”

Overall our trip was very good. We enjoyed all places visited. Derek made sure we saw as many animals as possible. He was a very good guide with a great sense of humour.

“Many thanks your organisation was perfect”

Edward, Now that I am back in England, I am just emailing to say a big thank you for organising our holiday. All went very well, there were no problems at all and we loved Namibia and will return again with 4 people in the party next time. So, many thanks your organisation was perfect.

“Edward did a super job”

A special mention for Edward he did a super job – vouchers and maps were with our car hire agency at the airport – book presentation of whole trip was clear, easy to follow and complete. He even gave us his mobile No in case we encounter some problems. Really to recommend as Tour Operator and will use them again next time.

Road – all went well and thanks to have recommended a 4Wheel Drive Car – due to rough road conditions we appreciated – you could do it with a normal car and met tourists with B type cars but they took much longer for the journeys – had more issues with flat tyres and most admitted next time they will take a 4Wheel Drive Car.

Would like to thank you for all your time spent and hard work to find best places, difficult tasks due to budget restrictions. I will recommend you and your agency whenever I can – actually already did in Joburg – hope brings you some new customers - and of course will come to you for my next trip this time to South Africa hopefully in 2012.

“Thanks for all your work putting together a holiday we truly loved”

We would like to commend the high service received from Namibian Tours and Safaris especially taking into account the short length of time you had to arrange this holiday for us. The recommendations and itinerary were ideal with the majority of our stay in each location being the right duration. The whole process of booking this holiday was hassle free and we would not hesitate in recommending your services to others.

We would specifically like to thank you, Alison, for all of your hard work which resulted in a truly fabulous holiday for us. Also, it was great to meet up with you in Solitaire where you expressed so much love for your country and this was clearly mirrored in the schedule and service you presented to us allowing us to experience this fantastic country. It will not be the case of 'if' we return to Namibia, it is more the case of 'when' we will return as we enjoyed it so much.

Nik Stevenson, UK

“We would recommend Namibia Tours and Safaris”

We liked the smaller lodges better than the big ones partly because service and cuisine was better. We marvelled at geological/geographical diversity. Enjoyed visit to Bushman Foundation and interaction with Namibians was fun and interesting. We would recommend this safari and Namibia Tours & Safaris.

“Amazing guide”

We were so blessed to have such in informative and amazing guide. Vince was the most amazing host, guide, chef, astrologist, botanist, and friend who not only takes pride in his profession but also his country and its history and the importance of preserving; respecting it.

Lindsay Radcliffe, UK

“What a great job”

More time in Etosha! My favourite part of the trip was going on game drives through Etosha - would have preferred more time here. Vince was amazing – made the trip exponentially more enjoyable. Can’t stress enough what a great job he does.

I was really impressed with the way Vincent guided us in a relaxed and organised structure and he seems to be an endless source of information. Also Paulus and Jeremiah were lovely! Vincent’s cooking was very good, sometimes better than the lodges.

“I knew we were in excellent hands”

I loved to see so much of this beautiful country. I thought the itinerary was a wonderful introduction to Namibia. Ideally I would have preferred staying in more places longer than one night but I don’t see how that can be avoided while still seeing so much.

Vincent Brehany made this trip. From the moment we met him I knew we were in excellent hands. His knowledge and demeanour are simply outstanding – he was the ideal guide and I can’t imagine doing this trip without him. He is wonderful and I’m so grateful to know him.

“Many memorable adventures”

We're just about to leave Namibia, but I wanted to be sure and tell you what a wonderful time we had on our trip. We had many memorable adventures, fantastic sites to see, and lovely accomodations.

Thanks for putting together a fantastic trip! Please extend our thanks to Estelle for her excellent orientation.

“We had a fantastic time in Namibia”

Wilmari, Just a quick note to say that we had a fantastic time in Namibia and thanks for all the help and arrangements. Right from the start, meeting with Estelle and her helpful comments and tips, it went to plan. We were pleased with the standard of accomodation and the food more than met our expectations. Maybe the only slight disappointment was the standard of accommodation at Durstenbrook, although the location & wildlife were a bonus. Of course, we travelled lots of km's and saw some amazing sights and animals - too many photos to process! Next time we may even camp! Or next time, somewhere else in Africa - give us some ideas! So, thanks again.

“We loved Namibia and Botswana. Loved every minute of it.”

We had a fantastic holiday! We loved every lodge we visited and everything was taken care of perfectly.

We met Estelle the first day and she handed us the printed book with all the info. It was perfect, we would never had something like that if we booked with a Dutch company. Estelle was very friendly and helpful.

We loved our 2 weeks in Namibia and Botswana. Loved every minute of it. Thanks to the great accommodations we could stay in and the lovely people we met. And of course the amazing wildlife... Thank you so much for organizing our trip!

“We really loved every minute of our vacation”

I hope you are well, we are now back from our magnificent trip in Namibia. We had a wonderful time, nice weather, a lot of animals and a very good guide. On top of our very busy itinerary and long days, we were able to do a half day of 4X4 on the sand dunes, went sea kayaking with the seals and horseback riding to see the sunset. We really loved every minute of our vacation. Namibia is a very nice country to visit.

About our lodges, we especially loved Onguma Bush Camp (very good food), especially that we got one of there new oval rooms that just opened 2 months ago, big, very clean and very nice. Etendeka Mountain Camp , we loved where the lodge was situated, the outside bathroom and the food was excellent. Mowani Mountain Camp , what is not to like about this magnificent place in the rocks, and the excellent food. Canyon Village , was bigger then what we are usually looking for, but very nice lodge, nice pool and very good food And the Camelthorn was an excellent place to finish our trip, especially that we were the only guest in the lodge for that night and again excellent food, we were kind of sad that we didn't stay there for two nights.

We also appreciated Okaukuejo , Kavita Lion Lodge and Opuwo.

About The Desert Homestead and Horse Trails , we thought that the lodge was nicely located, to bad we didn't have hot water for two days, and the meat at dinner time was not eatable and the staff a bit disorganized. But the lodge own a stable right next to the lodge where we went horseback riding to see the sunset. Having owned a horse for 25 years and done show jumping, I was impressed on how well the horses were kept. The stables were very clean and the horses very well fead and clean. I would recommend this place for there stables and horses for any of your clients who wants to make sure that they will not endup in a place where the horses are not well being taken care of and where they only have bones and skin.

We will definitely visit South Africa in the next two years, so I will contact you to book another magnificent vacation like the one we just did.

“To sum up our thoughts on Charles would be to simply say 'the best ever guide' we ever had the pleasure of meeting”

My wife and I have been traveling extensively around the world for the past 14 Years. This trip in Namibia was our fifth safari type trip in Africa. We have become accustomed to travelling alone outside any organized group tour. We are not easily impressed, as we demand quite a bit from our guides. Nevertheless we have meet quite a few that provided us with exceptional service and on more than one occasion made our trip memorable.

Than we meet Charles Rhyn. I really don’t know how I can put into words how he totally outperformed any one we had the pleasure of working with, during our many years of travelling. His above average knowledge of the animals, birds and fauna in Namibia made every encounter a source of fascination and respect. I say respect as he would explain in layman terms, how each one survived it’s environment and their natural predators, through cunning and at time abilities developed over eons.

Being avid photographers he would always place the vehicle in such a way as to maximize the benefits from the lighting conditions what ever part of the day it was. On more than one occasion he would indicate a picture angle that had eluded us, thus making our picture album one of the best so far.

Linda suffers from allergies that could prove fatal if she ate certain type of food. It did not matter if it was a five star restaurant or grocery store as he would always insure that he passed on the required information thus guarantying our ease of mind.

Driving long hours at a time can prove hazardous thus making us prone to accidents. His driving abilities again surprised us as not once did he not anticipate to slow down when required in order to prevent us from getting bang around the car. We trusted him to the point of dozing off when there was just long stretch of road without any thing to see. He always anticipate others drivers lack of driving skills as he drove defensively at all times

His intimate knowledge of the road network and the places we visited, gave us a chance to glimpse some places that were not part of the original plan. Perfect example was to bring us to a small waterfall to enjoy after a refreshing swim followed by a leisurely lunch instead of sitting in a restaurant on the side of the road. Other times he changed the order of the sites to either miss out on the surge of tourists or permit us better lighting for our pictures.

Every evening, when we arrived at our destination, he quickly insure that we received the best available room. Than he would reserve us a table away from the noise so that we could enjoy a quiet meal.

To sum up our thoughts on Charles would be to simply say “the best ever guide” we ever had the pleasure of meeting.

You did such a good job and I want to thank you again for your professionalism and for taking my call on a Sunday!!!!!

“Just like to say again that we would rate this holiday as one of the best we have had and at 74 I have been to a few places ”

The drive from windhoek to Opuwo was outstanding and could repeat it tomorrow. We were happy with the way we were treated by Desert Car Hire. I would definitely recommend self drive in Namibia and yourselves.

Best 3 places of interest
1.0 DRIVE from Aus lodge to Ohakane lodge via your directions The landscape/ Terrain either side of the road, the change in road conditions fantastic
2.0 Etendeka Mountain Camp
3.0 Otjitotongwe (Cheetahs)

Best 3 Hotels and Lodges
1.0 Okonjima Lodge Plains Camp We were upgraded from Main to Bush Camp, Absolute Luxury
2.0 Twyfelfontein Country Lodge
3.0 Namib Desert Camp

To Improve Itinerary
Opuwo was a bit disappointing as we would have liked to visit a Himba tribe but the cost would have been in the order of £160 as they required a minimum of 4 persons. Would have paid say £80.00 for the privilege, would like to know how much of this goes to the Himbas?

As the guide book states the best place in Opuwo is the Petrol Station

General Comments
In general the food quality and choice was excellent, the presentation of the food at Aus Lodge and Okonjima Bush Camp would be as found at a FIRST CLASS restaurant. In contrast Etosha poor quality food, lack of correct plates available, choice of food running out before being replenished. Long queues to obtain a fried egg. The size of Etosha I would have expected money exchange facility and credit card facility for petrol, I did manage to obtain petrol using credit card but had to wait approx 3 hours before they got hold of a supervisor to sign a chit for me but only after insisting at reception they telephone him. It would appear he was the only person who could allow this, Lets hope he does not get sick? I would put all of the above (Etosha) down to poor management

Plus Side
Excellent choice of lodges, very clear and good instructions for travelling between between lodges did not need sat nav Edward excellent and patient in dealing with our queries, would not hesitate in recommending yourselves.

Personally this is one of the best holidays we have had

“We were lucky enough to see a group of elephants along the river bank with a newborn calf amongst them”

Hello Edward - Gord and I have returned home safe and sound and we are still in disbelief at how wonderful our holiday was. It far exceeded our expectations. Thank you so much for planning this adventure for us and for getting it so right. We had a bit of a worry at the start - there was no one at the airport to pick us up when we arrived in Windhoek. Luckily there was a fellow from the Desert Hire Company picking up 2 young men and they offered to give us a lift to the Palmquelle. Also, our luggage was not put on the plane in Cape Town and when we got our bags the next day we discovered someone had gone through them and stolen a camera, GPS and a few other items. The rest of the trip, however, was perfect!

The Desert Hire company was great to deal with and we loved our "Hilux Hotel". The self-drive was absolutely the best way to see Namibia and sleeping in a tent allowed us to feel so close to everything - the birds early in the morning, the sounds of hippos in the river below us, and even a baboon rampage in Waterberg Park.

I will get our "Report Sheet" to you this week, but just wanted to let you know how wonderful our holiday was. I also cannot Thank You enough for organizing an itinerary that got us to the places where we were able to see and do all the things we had hoped to. I had especially wanted to see Hippos and our stay at Ndhovu Safari Lodge was amazing. We were able to watch the hippos all day long, as well as hear them at night up on the floodplain behind our campsite. We went down the river on a small boat to see the hippos (and crocodiles) from the water and were lucky enough to see a group of elephants along the river bank with a newborn calf amongst them. That is something I will never forget! The birds in this area were also unforgettable.

We were also quite impressed with what you class as "budget travel". The campsites and lodges were far superior to what we were expecting. Everything was clean and comfortable and absolutely no problems with your voucher system. This was by far the best trip my husband and I have ever taken and I can't imagine it ever being surpassed. We really appreciate how well you understood what we wanted to get out of our visit to Namibia and how well you made that happen for us!!

“Excellent hosts looked after us”

Hi Edward,
I just want to thank you for the bookings you organised on our behalf. To be honest I was quite staggered at how salubrious they were.

The two stand outs, for different reasons, were The Garden Lodge in Kasane and Klein-Aus Vista . Sandfields Guesthouse was also very good. Excellent hosts who looked after us.

Lastly, the vehicle provided by Stephan Lewis also surpassed our expectations. Brilliant. Big tick there.

Anyway, thanks once again. I would come back at the drop of a hat and hope to do so.

Cheers, Guy Miklenda

“We had an amazing time and enjoyed the landscapes, the animals and the excellent lodge selections very much!”

Dear Alison,

I am writing to provide you with our feedback from and with a big THANK you for organizing our self drive safari trip in Namibia so excellently.

We had an amazing time and enjoyed the landscapes, the animals and the excellent lodge selections very much! Documentation and organization were outstanding and we can only recommend ATS/ NTS to any other traveller. Most of the lodges were really nice placed in special locations, food very tasty and staff more than welcoming and friendly!

We were also very happy with the car (a 4x4 is a must), .... had some bad luck with a total of 5 flat tires. But at the time we had 3 flat tires within 4 hours, all 4 tires have been exchanged during our stay in Etendeka Mountain Camp without any doing from our side but 2 phonecalls and some sms's. Very good client service indeed!

The only thing we would probably suggest to skip is Opuwo (if you are not heading further up to the falls). It is a lot of driving in the two days and we were not that excited about the town. We were also not able to visit the Himbas due to our tire problems and no vehicle available from the lodge.

But overall a big compliment and a thank you!

Kind regards, Edith

“The dunes were astonishing – certainly not to be missed.”

It was interesting to see so many different areas and drive through the dramatic mountains in Damaraland. It is a hard life for some of the farmers. It was also good to see the animals in the lovely setting of the game area at Palmwag Lodge and be there without any other vehicles. Etosha was amazing – all we could have hoped for, especially the waterhole at Okaukuejo . The food there was variable and at one lunch time very little choice. Jackals scavenged round the bins by the swimming pool area while we were eating and the debris was not cleared. Lovely rooms and pool.

Loved the restaurant at Twyfelfontein and the entertaining guide for the engravings. Such an interesting drive down the river bed to find the desert elephants with new born baby.

The dunes were astonishing – certainly not to be missed.

The vehicle was comfortable but no a/c. The windows were unsatisfactory as there was no way to adjust the air flow – open or shut. It would have been good to have sliding windows to have clear view while seated for cameras. Good view when roof was open but it rattled very badly when driving along.

Charly was amazing! A great bird expert, enthusiastic, energetic, kind, thoughtful, responsible driver and really good company. He was upset that we did not find a leopard! He was especially kind to me as the oldest member. After I had my bag looted at Johannesburg he helped me put in a claim. He obtained the form, photocopied documents and faxed them all off in the timescale demanded. Through hearing his personal story we learned a great deal about life in Namibia.

It was a fantastic trip and our guide, Charles Rhyn, was excellent – very knowledgeable on all subjects and “unstinting” in his care of us, sorting out minor problems etc.

“We were surprised by the lack of tourists in many areas”

Scenery was more stunning that expected - and we had high expectations to start. Felt very welcome everywhere as tourists. Excellent service in all lodges except Twyfelfontein (mediocre). We were surprised by the lack of tourists in many areas we stayed (Cape Cross, Halali, Etosha Aoba). We really enjoyed the Sandwich Harbour / Walvis Bay tour from PhotoVenture (Herman), and I got my sandboarding trip in the following morning too. SO exhausting... We had Cape Cross lodge all to ourselves, which was nice, but weird, although the beach and lodge is beautiful. Skeleton Coast drive was gorgeous, although the road was quite bumpy around Torra Bay (I think we averaged 30km/h for a good 2 hours), but the trip inland was worth the sacrifice! (Turns out we were the only car in the park all day according to the rangers).

We cannot thank Danie and the NTS team enough for the excellent service and personal touches. You made everything very easy and recommendations were spot on.

“It was nice to fly with Scenic Air”

Dear Carmen,

As promised some official feed back on our wonderful trip! Namibia is extremely beautiful and people very friendly - almost as friendly as in Ghana:-)

My wife and I learned a lot and will have Namibia on our mind and in our hearts forever.

3 best lodges: Wolwedans Dunes Lodge , Ongava Tented Camp , Ongava Lodge . It was nice to fly with Scenic Air - the pilots (Duncan and Katie) were professional, helpful and very kind. Staff at Ongava Lodge and Camp were very kind and professional; Camp Kipwe fun and friendly; Wolwedans staff kind and polite but seemed like new staff were being 'broken in' during this low season.

Kind regards, Michael

“We needed more time in Onguma”

Namibia sells itself. We needed more time in Onguma Tented Camp and should have taken a night prior to the tour in Windhoek. Would recommend this to tourists from North America. Generally excellent planning with Wilmari. Accommodations exceeded expectations. Vincent, our guide, 'made' the trip for us with his knowledge and care for our needs.

We found this tour on the internet and compared your suggested itineraries to those of 5 other Namibian tour companies. Your website was the best!

“It was a seamless holiday without any hitches”

Hi Edward

I have just returned home from our holiday (Tito is still spending a couple of days in Dubai) and I just wanted to say a very big thank you for arranging a grand and memorable holiday that we all had. It was a seamless holiday without any hitches. We would like to make a special mention of the Motswiri camp* that really spoilt us and was a great place with exceptional service. The experience that we had on the walking tour was quite memorable and will be with us for a long long time.

Once again, many thanks for arranging this magnificent holiday. If you require a comment/recommendation for your website, I will be more than happy to provide.

* Our clients tailored this itinerary to stay at Motswiri Camp in the Selinda Reserve and added an extra night in Victoria Falls at the Victoria Falls Hotel .

Thank you for such a great holiday, we really enjoyed our tour around Namibia and Botswana. I especially appreciated your patience to respond to each enquiry of mine (and there were lots of these :)), as well as working with me on the the exact type of lodging and itinerary that I was looking for. I am very happy that we stayed within the budget I initially requested, that was a big plus for me. Finally, I was surprised with how seamless everything went; your know-how, instructions and detailed itinerary were a huge help to make this essentially a worry-free experience. Again, big thanks!

“The pace of our tour was comfortable and pleasant”

Hello Carmen! It was a superb tour and I thank you for all of your efforts in ensuring my reservations, airport transfers, etc. were fully confirmed. You've been an excellent tour consultant and I would highly recommend your company to friends and colleagues.

I was thoroughly impressed by the superior level of service provided by every person I encountered. Michael, my guide to Sossusvlei was very well trained, knowledgable, and made sure the pace of our tour was comfortable and pleasant. He was exceptional and should be commended.

“Amenities and levels of comfort exceeded our expectations, considering the reasonable pricing”

We were extremely pleased with the level of accommodation provided on our holiday to Namibia. We experienced a variety of accommodations whose amenities and levels of comfort exceeded our expectations, considering the reasonable pricing for each.

Our guide, Vincent Brehany, provided outstanding service throughout our trip through Namibia. From the moment that he picked us up at the Windhoek airport and drove us to the Auas Game Lodge, Vincent's extensive knowledge of his country became evident. We learned so much about the flora and fauna, geological aspects of the landscape, historical perspective and a hint of culinary delights to follow by the time we arrived at our lodge.

Our vehicle was the Land Cruiser with the pop-up roof which we highly recommend for tour parties travelling through Etosha and other wildlife spotting areas. The four-wheel drive capabilities allowed us to travel beyond the 2WD Car Park into Sossusvlei and Dead Vlei, "must-see" venues in the park. In addition, we took many secondary "D" roads, stopping for lunch in places like Ganab, and for pictures along the way in Damaraland.

In all, Namibia Tours and Safaris has provided a great range of accommodation options for the traveller who wants a mid-range level of comfort at affordable pricing.

“Everything on the tour was absolutely perfect”

Dear Carmen,
As promised, I am getting back to you in regards to the Namibia Tour my husband and daughter booked with your company. I have recently viewed the photos and videos my husband took of the safari adventure and I can say honestly that their experience was one of true amazement and awe. My husband said he had never seen anything so uniquely unparalleled to anything he had ever seen before, and he has traveled all over the world. He told me the tour could not have been better and both he and my daughter will hold the fondest memories of the places they saw and the people they met. Everything on the tour was absolutely perfect and the viewing of all the wildlife was spectacular. They really felt like they were given an opportunity to see the sights up-close and unhurried.

My husband felt perfectly at home helping prepare meals, and pitching in with the guides. He was happy wandering off to see "behind the scenes" in the villages and campsites. He brought back with him so many wonderful stories and a fondness for Africa that he won't soon forget.

Back at home again after a truly wonderful trip to Namibia. Estelle told us upon arrival in Windhoek that we would love Namibia, and we sure did. The weather, the car, the food, the accommodation, the service, the scenery, the animals, everything was just perfect.

I think I mentioned that the trip to Namibia was to be a once-in a lifetime journey, but have to say the experience was so good that we might do this again, as we still have the Caprivi area to explore and maybe Victoria Falls and the Chobe National Park in Botswana. I'd like to thank you once again for planning this great journey for us, and don't be surprised if I'll get in touch with you again in a few years time.

“All our queries were handled quickly and professionally”

Many thanks to all the crew at Africa Tours, especially Patrick, who helped us to piece together what has truly been a fantastic trip. We were looking to undertake a self-drive overland trip from Victoria Falls through to Namibia and, as independent travellers, it took a little time to adjust our mindsets to adding a little structure. In retrospect, many parts (distances, road conditions etc) of the trip would have been challenging without the input and local knowledge of Patrick and the team, and their insight helped make our holiday run smoothly. All our queries were handled quickly and professionally, and any concerns we had about the trip were assuaged. From the tree house in the Okavango Delta to the sunset in Fish River Canyon, each day just seemed to exceed the expectations of the previous one. Surely it couldn't get better, and yet it did, time after time. Many thanks again.

“Professional efficiency and expertise”

Sue and I just returned from a 3 week trip to South Africa. Our time was packed with nostalgic and memorable events. ( We are from South Africa but have lived in Canada for last 30 years ). The highlight of the trip ( thanks to you ) was the 6 day self drive tour of part of Namibia. When I first planned this trip, I started out dealing with another organization but met with unbelievable apathy, slow response and complete inefficiency. That is when I decided to contact you. The contrast was phenomenal. You delivered 110% and we are blown away by your professional efficiency and expertise. The final touch was when you lent us your vehicle. Our first experience of Namibia has left us with a tantalizing, mouth watering desire to return, but this time for much longer as 6 days just doesn't do it justice.

“Thank you again for planning a perfect vacation for us”

Dear Wilmari,
Back home and I wanted to take a moment to thank you again for planning a perfect vacation for us. I was especially pleased that for the accommodation with dinner all knew about my allergies and cooked accordingly. The Cheetah experience made my daughter very happy and they were so kind to not even charge me for taking pictures.

Highlight of our trip was the stay in Onguma The Fort and we are determined to return one day.

As pointed out before, the Namib Desert Lodge I cannot recommend to anybody (fined for driving on their property and below average dinner buffet) and also the Olivia Guesthouse was a letdown when it came to the food (lunch and breakfast).

I have posted some pictures on Flickr, maybe you want to have a look and I'm always happy to read comments.

Last but not least: Could you please send us the itinerary you prepared for us and we received at arrival electronically? Some of my friends are interested to book the same trip with you.

“Again, thanks for your flexibility, support and all the best to all of you”

Thanks for your kind message and for organizing such a wonderful honey moon. It was all perfectly organized, and sorry for not replying earlier.

The only place where we were a bit disappointed is the last night back in Windhoek, I forgot the name of the place... It was run down, not such friendly people, the room was disappointing versus all the other accommodations! Other than that, it was 100%

Olive Grove is really such a perfect place: staff, room, food, service, etc!!!! We loved !

Since over a month we are back to reality and work, but the HM was unforgettable. What a great country you have. The highlight was Etosha where we saw lions, cheetahs and leopard! Amazing.

Again, thanks for your flexibility, support and all the best to all of you.

“Our favorites were Mowani and Sossus Dune Lodge”

Is has been a while since we return from our tour in Africa but I want to thank you for all the work and specially for the amazing lodges that you booked for us (our favorites were Mowani and Sossus Dune Lodge and also the Victoria Falls Hotel but the other lodges were also very nice) and with the exception of the problem with the transfer from Victoria Falls Hotel to Garden Lodge (this was the only lodge that we didn´t like, although their boat tour and game drive were incredible and the guide John was very competent), everything was perfect.

This e-mail is also to thank you for booking Tim Theron as our guide because he is just an amazing person and professional and definitelly provided us the most unforgettable experience in Namibia and he has also an incredible knowledge regarding the game drive.

We are still dreaming with this tour and hoping that one day we could return.

“All went well for me”

I just arrive back in Philadelphia and I would like to provide some feedback on the tour. Overall, there was no problems and all went well for me. I enjoyed my driver/guide (Alfi). He was knowledgeable, a good safe driver, and made a nice appearance. He had good manners and bearing.

The activity schedule for the 11 day tour was well balanced and not over taxing. The selection of lodges were fine. Your selection of the Heinitzburg Hotel and the Kalahari Sands for my lodging prior to and after the tour were good. Both hotels had a fine standard for a category four hotel and favorable pricing. There was no problem with the billing. All was pre paid by your company.

I would recommend your tour company to others.

“Superb safari”

We've had two superb safaris under Danie's guidance from design to delivery - it's been like holidaying with a trusted friend, and we couldn't have asked for better ways to celebrate our fiftieth birthdays. We haven't seen much of Botswana (yet), but Namibia is a country of fantastic variety and contrast, stunning landscapes, amazing weather and wonderful wildlife from elephants right down to bugs via some spectacular birds. We found the people welcoming, warm and friendly and the guides knowledgeable, flexible and responsive. We aren't experienced, confident travellers, so making us feel relaxed enough to enjoy such wonderful experiences is no mean feat! The accommodation was always clean, never less than adequate and frequently luxurious; the food & drink always good with every care taken over Peter's diabetic dietary requirements. Highlights include seeing an aardwolf, a honey badger and the Herero chat on Peter's birthday (Etendeka Mountain Camp), seeing an aardvark on Sharon's birthday (Okonjima Lodge Plains Camp), seeing three cheetah in Etosha, private encounters with an oryx (Dead Vlei) and a large-spotted genet (Camp Moremi), tracking spotted hyena (Okonjima)and black rhino (Grootberg Lodge) on foot, racing mother & baby white rhino to a waterhole (Edos Camp), sunset over the South Atlantic at Terrace Bay, being left alone to soak up the peace and isolation of the Etendeka Mountains and watching storm clouds tumble off the Grootberg plateau into the Klip River Valley. Special moments, lovely photos but priceless memories - thank you.

“A true delight!”

It was as if we took 2 safaris at once, one for the animals and one for the birds. Augustinus's keen eye and alertness was phenomenal. He is a real gentleman with a stout attitude towards life. Wonderful country. Friendly people, clean, great food. A true delight!

“A truly enjoyable trip”

I would like to thank you and your staff for helping make this a truly enjoyable trip. The ease of travel and convenience of pre-booked accommodation meant our first visit to Namibia was incredibly stress free and relaxing, we will definitely be back again. The choice of accommodation venues was perfect for our needs and the staff were always pleasant, welcoming and incredibly helpful and the facilities were always good. Thank you once again for a memorable holiday.

I doubt that there is a more considerate, knowledgeable, courteous guide/driver than Charles. He made us feel very privileged.
