Beautiful 2 weeks drive around Namibia with Hennie and Elmor in December 2020
What a trip! What a country! What a service!
After 12 months of agonizing wait for an opportunity to go places, we decided to take a risk and to go for our Namibia trip which was originally planned for August, 2020. FFS were able to rearrange our trip according to the current limitations on a very short notice (we could not enter RSA due to COVID).
And here we go again - our group of 5 is met by Hennie and Elmor at Windhoek airport and in no time we are on the road.
This trip had everything. Think about being washed down by pouring rain in the middle of Kalahari while listening to that particular sound of San people, walking through hundreds of newborn seals, encountering lions and black rhinos in Etosha. Add to that Hennie singing in the back of the car some old Boer songs when everyone gets bored by driving along endless Skeleton coast. Throw in the most beautiful sand dune landscape (Sossusvlei) I have ever seen - and I have been to Sahara, coastal desert of Peru and Atacama of Chile to name a few. Pour in Elmor's excellent geological insights of how these otherworldly landscapes have been forming during last 500 millions years or so. And icing on the cake - New Year dinner of Kudu and Eland steaks cooked by no other than Hennie himself and served under African stars - and this is when the rest of the world is stuck behind closed doors & curfews following "strictly no fun" rules of this brave new world.
We have time now to reflect on all these things - and to start planning the next one. Maybe, that northeastern corner of RSA? Hennie said there might be some wildlife there...
Memorable Baviaans MTB Tour experience thanks to excellent hosts
The Baviaans Mountain Bike Tour by Fleet Foot Safaris was our highlight of the year so far.
The scenery and surroundings of the area were breathtaking and our hosts Elmor, Elaine, Hennie and Charles were exceptional hosts providing transportation, fully supported back up, water points, laughs and world class meals. The accomoddation was comfortable, clean and well considered throughout the trip.. All we had to do was ride our bikes and the rest was taken car of. Our 160km journey by bike took us through one of the countries most beautiful areas and our hosts provided fascinating insight into how it all formed millions of years ago. Elmor added valuable information as we went and gave us a different perspective of the area and was much appreciated. If you like riding your bike and exploring nature at its purest, this is the optimal way to do it. Thanks again and we will definitely be joining the next tour.
Great adventure - super reliable - we can definitely recommend it!
We're still overwhelmed by Fleet Foot Safaris.
Our first journey together with them was in 2014. We went to SA, Botswana and Mozambique that time. Everything was planned super well.
We therefore decided booking with them a self driving camping safari in Namibia this year.
On the part of the office an unbeatable preparation and attention. Hennie, Elmor and Elaine quickly and professionally answered all our emails, answering all our questions. They also took care of all our special wishes.
The car, a Toyota Hilux, was in an excellent shape for long drives, poor roads and even some deep sand sessions.
It was equiped with absolutely everything you need for camping.
We can definitely recommend them any time!
My sister and I wanted to visit South Africa for a safari. From the beginning, Fleet Foot Safari was the most communicative of the Safari companies I emailed. They answered my questions very quickly and were very professional. They followed up with additional confirmations as well as a final itinerary and when I arrived, a day before we were to start, they sent a welcome email as well!
Our guide was Elmor and he was great! He took care of everything. We stopped for lunch on the way to the first Safari location, had breaks and coffee, etc., too. He introduced us to biltong (South African beef jerky type) and answered our many questions.
The accommodations chosen were really nice as one was a a small private camp and another was in Kruger frequented by South Africans. In the later, it had a kitchenette, which Elmor prepared our meals.
I can not imagine having a better experience than the one we had. It was fantastic and we saw a lot of animals. I can't wait to go again! Fleet Foot Safari provides a worthwhile and memory filled experience.
reliable and experienced tour operator
It's our third time in our family we ask their help to organize our trip and all the time eveything was very well organized and very satisfying.
Expections were fully met and replies to questions in due time.
Very kind personal approach.
