ReviewsDon't take our word for it - read through our customer reviews. All of these have been published without any editing.
What was best were the different superlative experiences - i.e. sunrise and sunset on the sanddunes, the 3 days game viewing at Etosha, walk with kalahari bushmen, okavango delta, vic falls.
Spending time in Cape Town. Deadvlei was visually stunning. The Okavango Delta presented the opportunity for the pace to slow down and gave time to relax and enjoy the surroundings. The Vic Falls were our main reason for choosing the holiday and didn't disappoint. All destinations in the itinerary had their own unique appeal and interest.
At times pace too fast, left little time to enjoy the surroundings. Occasionally precious time wasted unnecessarily: In Maun those not taking the optional, scenic flight had to wait around for 2+ hours with little to do waiting for those taking the flight. This time could have been spent taking advantage of the facilities at the campsite and not having to rush pitching tents, showering & eating. Swakopmund - we felt we had no option other than to sit through sales videos & patter regarding optional activities. I am sure this information could be conveyed to people without wasting so much valuable time on such a fast paced holiday. Most people had already made up their minds what they were doing prior to the talk. Victoria Falls - the above was repeated on arrival at Livingstone, leaving little time to fully enjoy what, for us, was to be one of the highlights of our trip and resulted in our having to rush around in order to see all that the Victoria falls park had to offer.
See notes above Although we give a 'fair' rating to the accuracy of trip itinerary , we felt that days 21 & 23 rated 'poor' but most other days rated 'good'. Day 21 'On arrival you head off to to see one of the most awesome sights in the world...'. We arrived at 12 noon and immediately had lunch. Most of the rest of the afternoon was spent waiting for and listening to the sales talk. Day 23 'This morning is left free for further optional activities.......Clients on group flights transfer to Livingstone airport in the afternoon....' We left the campsite at 10.10 am (after taking tents down, packing etc) for an early afternoon flight - this day should not really be included as an activity day.
Accomodation fit for purpose.
Due to the breakdown of the truck and the loss of the more experienced leader, Wouter did his best to continue the trip.

**** Comment from The Adventure Company ****
We are sorry that it was felt that the pace was too fast on parts of the itinerary. We have passed the comments about the 2 hour wait in Maun onto our local agent so that for future customers this does not happen unless necessary.
Our guides do need to outline all of the possible optional excursions on offer, but 2 hours is quite extensive and not overly necessary. We will request that this is reviewed with our local guides.
The best highlight overall was at the end of the tour when we visited the Victoria Falls at Livingstone. The two nights in the Delta were very interesting and the walks meant that we could get fairly close to the wildlife.
[Least enjoyed] The constant moving on. I know that the hours of travelling were outlined in the itinerary but in reality they were much longer than the estimated time given. I feel that this should be honestly reflected in the information so that clients actually know what is involved. We were a very small group and that meant a lot of washing up! Whilst I don't mind taking a turn helping with all the tasks it did make for hard work, and after a very long day on the road, and especially after putting up the tent and helping to prepare the meal, it resulted in very little 'down' time for anyone.
One of the Guides, Kevin, was a true professional and worked very hard on our behalf, but I felt it was wrong that he was driving all day and then being expected to produce a meal for everyone. The other Guide Garrit seemed more interested in telling tall stories about his expertise, (mainly for the benefit of the two young German ladies on the tour), than actually doing any of the work! I would suggest that he does need to grow up some before being allowed to lead a tour. I was very relieved that he didn't come into the Delta with the group as I would not have felt confident that he would deal with whatever came along in such and isolated spot.
Altogether the brief time spent in any one spot gave no time for really seeing the area. This is difficult with such and ambitious itinerary but maybe it should be considered when at the planning stage of a trip.
As I have already outlined, Kevin was a true professional who worked hard and drove us safely and carefully throughout the trip. Garrit was friendly but terribly immature and apt to make his importance more than he could possibly live up to at 24. He seemed to sleep all the time, both in the truck and whenever there was a chance to do so. He also didn't seem to be a true support for Kevin, but rather left the work and organisation totally to Kevin. His knowledge was limited and although he gave us general information regarding the environment, Kevin often had to step in to fill in the details. I don't doubt that he knew a great deal about the animals and areas we were passing through but it as all pretty superficial. Overall Kevin could have handled the trip on his own and I'm still wondering about Garrit's role.

Our lovely leader, Albert, from Sunways, he was always smiling, nothing was too much trouble, he was just a lovely companion. Good size of group(12) loads of fun. From the holiday itself Etosha, Spitzkoppe and Swakopmund.
Albert was just lovely!! He is really friendly, knowledgeable and fun. he made sure he talked to each and every one of us every morning, checked we had understood briefings, mended shoes, he couldn't have been more helpful
Mrs J - Travelled in November 2011
Almost too many to specify just one or two. The variety of landscapes/environments,the wildlife and the wonderful peoples encountered were particuarly memorable.
[Albert] A definite people person - very caring and considerate with excellent knowledge and a great sense of humour.
We got to see 4 countries (South Africa, Namibia, Botswana and Zambia) and had some fantastic scenery and experiences along the way. The travel days can be long, but there is always plenty of interesting scenery to keep your eyes occupied. The trip into the Delta was really exciting, you wild camp there and really feel like you're 'out in the sticks'. The trip also goes to Etosha, which was also a great experience. We managed to see plenty of lions there and some black rhinos. The trip is mainly camping, but there are some nicely placed trips into towns (Swakopmund and Windhoek), where you stay in Guest Houses which are a welcome change from the tent. The only time the trip becomes a little active is at Sossusvlei, where you can climb Dune 45 first thing in the morning to watch the sunrise over the sand dunes.
