Client's Comments

"We would actually prefer to have much more flexibility in the nights we spend and where"

What were your most memorable experiences on your African holiday?
Self drive, Dolomite Camp, Waterberg Plateau, Safari, unplanned moments, Olive grove GH, Epupa Falls. Staying on the Skeleton Coast at Cape Cross (unplanned).

If you were to do this holiday again, what changes would you make?
More time on Waterberg plateau, drive up the Skeleton coast (though would need more time), skip Swakopmund (not really our kind of place) and Opuwo (busy and hectic). If we were to do this again (at the same time of year) we would actually prefer to have much more flexibility in the nights we spend and where - it was definitely possible and very easy to travel around Namibia and find accommodation at this time of year - nothing was even close to half full!

Do you have any general comments about your holiday? For example, accommodation, activities, guides, vehicles, transfers, value for money or suggestions.
Accommodation was good, with the exception of Aba Huab camp which is in dire need of some TLC (tender loving care) - looks as though it was great once but many things in disrepair. Considering the number of nights camping it seemed expensive? Without knowing the exact cost of accommodation along the way, it is difficult to say if the accommodation was value for money. However we thought the rooms booked were excellent.

How would you rate Wilmari’s service and our service overall?
Great service, very patient as we changed our minds constantly. There were just a couple of little discrepancies in the booking and paperwork as we travelled, but nothing major. Great little package of paperwork, very professional looking.

What other places in Africa do you want to visit?
All of it to be completely honest! I love travel, but am very independent in style.
