Amazing experience!
Overall rating

All the trip have been amazing.

The only negative thing is maybe the guide, that could sometime look bored to be there. But it was never the same, sometime, he wasa very happy to be there with us.

For the other thing, #1!! food, wildlife, view, lodge, all was fun!

A great variety of habitats, and wildlife (both birding and game viewing) which far exceeded my expectations.

Amazing 10-Day Self Drive Tour of Namibia
Overall rating

We started planning this trip rather last minute, only four weeks from our departure. After being a bit overwhelmed by all the choices, we opted to have Wayfairer Travel handle all the arrangements and bookings. We gave them a budget and they took it from there. We couldn't have been happier with the results. Every detail was taken care of and even though this was a self-drive tour, we were well taken care of along the way.

The accommodations were very high end and very comfortable, especially the Doro Nawas Lodge in Damaraland and the Ongava Lodge near Etosha. The food and service was top notch with all the meals being tasty and well presented. We were in Namibia in January which is their summer and the wet season. Not the best time we were told to see wildlife in places like Etosha, because the animals are spread out throughout the park and don't need to rely on the waterholes for their water. Despite that being the case, we saw elephants in Damaraland, lions in Ongava, Rhinos in Waterberg Plateau and most of the more common animals as well. No cheetahs or leopards, but we will have to save that for next time.

The highlights have to be the dunes in and around Sossusvlei (we spent an evening watching the sunset from Dune 40 all to ourselves). Everyone else goes to Dune 45 so it is full of footprints, but Dune 40 was untouched. Watching the sunrise from Deadvlei. Finding about 20 of the rare desert-adapted elephants in Damaraland along with a 3 week old calf, and watching about 10 lions in Ongava lounging around and playing with their cubs. Overall an amazing trip.

Wonderful 2 weeks in Namibia
Overall rating

We had a fantastic time in Namibia. The tour organized by Wild Wind Safaris was nicely organized and fully met our expecations. All of the lodges we stayed at were good and the food nice. The different landscapes were stunning and the wildlife is beautiful. The price you pay for seeing all this is that you are spending a lot of time in the car on the road but this you know in advance as the country is big and there a many gravel roads where you cannot drive very fast. We had a really excellent guide who shared a lot of information with us and gave us many insights about the country, the people and the different tribes.

Wonderful wilderness
Overall rating

We loved Namibia, it was so remote in places we felt like we had the country to ourselves on the road and it has not been spoilt yet by tourism. The wildlife in Etosha was great, we had some lovely sightings. The campsites could be improved (some staff were a bit rude and toilet paper kept running out!) but the sites were lovely. The weather was lovely and warm with some rain overnight. Sussouvlei was amazing, Ive never seen a landscape like it and we loved the long drives through the remote mountain passes. We already miss this beautiful country.
