Very slow in responding

Have to improve their speed of communication and responding. Been several occasions without response and they kept customer waiting. Have know idea what is going on. First, I didn’t want to write about this thinking it is just one time and they are a small company. But it has been so many times and it is very annoying when I don’t know what is going on with what I have requested and I have already put down the deposit. To be fair for them, the lady who has been helping me has been helpful in answering the question but it doesn’t help when my message was sent and no one attended to the question for one week. They might be all on holidays but I am not sure if this works for everyone especially when it comes to business and we need to get something rolling for the trip in advance.

Excellent service - highly recommended

We recently returned from a trip that included 2 weeks in Namibia. Cardboard Box Travel were very helpful in suggestions and bookings. Sonja, the contact there, did a great job. We decided on a self drive tour. The 4x4, accommodation and suggested route were all excellent. I highly recommend the organisation.

Excellent services!

Have used the Cardboardbox for my arrangements for many years, very staisfied with them! Good communication, quick responses and the they provide and set up your travels ass desired! They provide accomodations after excactly what you want. Good knowledge about places you want to see/do. Set up an itenirary that will suit the days you will spend! Highly recomend them if you are travelling in Namibia or Botswana!

Customized, Thrilling, and Diverse Trip

Our Cardboard Box representative spent a month working with us on a fully customized 22-day trip through Namibia and Botswana. Working within our budget, she designed an adventure that mixed thrilling wildlife encounters with cultural experiences and unique places to stay. Through Namibia2Go, Cardboard Box also reserved us a safe, reliable Toyota 4X4 that could handle the gravel, sand, and potholes that are common there. And when we had an issue with the vehicle, they responded promptly and sent someone immediately hundreds of kilometers to replace the vehicle. Top-notch service from our first inquiry to our transfer to the airport on our last day. The website is also incredibly informative about all things Namibian. We're so glad we stumbled across Cardboard Box on the internet!

Friendly, trustworthy and professional travel company

We had a fantastic and trouble-free self-drive holiday in Namibia, thanks in large part to Cardboard Box travel, who booked all of our camping and lodges in and around Etosha, and also arranged our camping-ready Hilux through Namibia2Go (who were also excellent.) Communication was great (that's important as there is quite a lot to plan on these trips!) and we liked all of the accommodation, including some memorable stays at lodges that Cardboard Box had recommended to us. Our vehicle was in immaculate condition and fitted out with everything we needed. They also have a really nice website full of detailed information about Namibia, its wildlife etc which shows a real love for the country. All in all, if looking for a local agent you can trust to help you book your annual holiday, then based on our experience, we'd 100% recommend this company.
