Reviews for Namibia Desert & Caprivi small group camping safari


review 5 Feb 2019

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Camping in Okavango Delta and Vic Falls.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Prepair for long hours in the vehicle and getting up early every day. Bring along enough US$ in cash. You travel through 4 different countries and it's hard to estimate how much (local) money you will need. Some currencies can be used in other countries on the tour, others not. With US$ you can pay everywhere. Use your spare currencies at the end of the tour for tipping your guides! It's a good way to get rid of it and they can use it on future tours.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes. Although from a western point of view it was sometimes a little strange to see the use of large quantities of plastic (water) bottles on the way. I would suggest to use reusable, sustainable containers as much as possible during the tour. On the other hand: the many 5 litres plastic containers that we bought for drinking water were given to the local people when empty, so that they could use them for carrying their own water.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

A great tour with more luxury than I expected for a camping tour. E.g. swimming pools at a lot of the campsites. The camp sites are great, located in beautiful, often remote areas!
