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

Traveling through Namibia for 3 weeks meant we managed to see some of the different landscapes, people and animals where each was very exciting. It is difficult to choose as there were all special. Seeing cheetahs at close range in Bagatelle, feeling the eerie quietness at Deadvlei with the long perished trees, experiensing the harsh beating waves from the south Atlantic at pelican point with the acrobatic seals, feeling the vastness of Damaraland whilst meeting desert elephants at close range, experiencing the melting pot of cultures at Opouwo, going for sunrise drive game spotting at Etosha National Park and last but not least seeing the wild life along the northern border at Kavango river falling to sleep to the sound of a frig concert. How can one choose!!! All this in amazing lodges thanks to Madri Bowman.

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

If you thinking of going to Victoria falls after Namibia go by air as a day was wasted on crossing 3 borders with all the papet work.

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

All the accommodations we used employed local people which gave them job opportunities.

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

Excellent! Can only use one word.

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

Very hard to pick one thing!! Many different aspects... Really enjoyed Fish River Canyon for its remoteness and lodge location, but then self-driving through Etosha and watching lions stalking prey at a water-hole was very special too.

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

Be prepared for long drives on gravel roads (max speed 50mph if its in good condition!) which can take a lot of time and with so many places to visit can lead to long days.

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

Hopefully it helped all those things.

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

Great trip that was enjoyed by all.
