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

The desert and Namib Naukluft National Park.

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

Be prepared for long, uncomfortable hours on the road. If known that we would spend three days on a truck with no suspension and that provided limited game viewing on safari, we would have booked with another company.

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

Not sure.

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

It was an incredible trip, Namibia is a stunning country. But some aspects which were important to us, in particular the quality of the transport, were not to the level we requested.

Read the operator's response here:

The vehicle used on this trip is a custom built safari vehicle with a pop-up roof and huge windows. Etosha can be dusty at times which is why full days of game viewing are better in a closed vehicle rather than an open game driver vehicle where you spend a lot of time driving through the park.  Unfortunately, this is the nature of Namibia with distances and the slower roads.   I am pleased you enjoyed the country and do appreciate your feedback as it is important to us.
