Overall Impressions


Countries Visited

Namibia 5

Loved going back after c.25 years. Hotels/lodges had very high standards, driving fine and game viewing/desert visit exceptional.

South Africa 4

Loved Cape Town, especially seeing friends and following our son's rugby tour, but much harder to relax than in Namibia due to social tensions.

Accommodation Visited

The Olive Exclusive All-Suite Hotel 5

Very comfortable and extremely stylish. Wonderful food.

Okonjima Luxury Bush Camp 5

Comfortable, stylish and wonderful guide - saw 2 adult leopards and a cub plus an adult cheetah with her cub, all in an afternoon and a morning!

Mokuti Lodge 3

Rooms comfortable if a little plain, communal areas and food fine - in keeping with it being a larger lodge than others. Check-in was very slow which prevented going into Etosha on the afternoon we arrived.

Ongava Tented Camp 5

Simply wonderful. Great viewings at the camp waterhole and on drives.

Meike?s Guesthouse 3

Absolutely fine for a stopover night which is what we were doing. Meike very helpful in finding us a table booking.

Agama River Camp 5

Comfortable though plain cottages but very pleasant communal area (newly enclosed under thatch), great food and wonderful views.

River Crossing Lodge 4

Comfortable rooms, wonderful views. Communal areas a little plain. Food good rather than excellent.

Hotel Verde Cape Town Airport 5

Superb in all respects. Extraordinary that an airport hotel could be this high quality. Garden a delight.

Radisson Blu Hotel Waterfront, Cape Town 5

Excellent, very comfortable. Watched dolphins in Table Mountain bay during breakfast! Added a lot to be directly on the water rather than a block or two inland.

Staff Review 5

Extremely helpful and a pleasure to interact with.
