Namibia and South Africa

Once again Maria did a fantastic job of organising our African adventure.
Our private tour of Namibia by Ultimate Safaris was excellent with a truly wonderful guide and very well equipped safari vehicle. Although many of the roads are terrible, the scenery and animal encounters more than make up for it. Paying the extra for a private tour rather than the group tour is well worth it.
The Cape Cadogan Boutique Hotel in Cape Town was wonderful. Great location, large well equipped rooms and caring staff.
Marataba Safari Lodge, in north west South Africa, has to be in one of the most stunning locations in Africa. The lodge has a large concession in the Marakele National Park, which is home to most of the African animals you expect to see on safari. A luxury experience, but unfortunately a boring 4 hour drive from Jo'berg.
Madikwe Safari Lodge is also a 4 hour drive from Jo'berg, in the Madikwe Game Reserve. A wonderful luxury lodge with great food and intimate service, however the Reserve is so large, that finding many of the animals can become a frustrating experience.
Ilios Travel and South African Airways both provided reliable, on time transfers and flights during our trip.
This was our 4th trip to Africa, but will certainly not be our last!

Namibian Experience

The start of out trip to the Zambezi Queen experience on the Chobe River was superb, apart from the customs experience going in and out – but it was African! Superb accommodation, views and activities, with amazing staff; well worth having the experience

We lost a case coming in to Windhoek, but the company took charge and found it for us and had it delivered day 2 of the trip; they were really well organised, and we had our own vehicle and guide – I was expecting to have to share with at least a few other folk, but there was only myself and the wife on our twosome with our personal guide Juan. He was fantastic, so thoughtful and attentive and so very knowledgeable about his country, it’s geology, floras and fauna – and even its astronomy. A magic person who looked after us magnificently for the entire tour; Another plus was the scenic flight to Swakopmund from Sossusvlei – this is an absolute must; it’s amazing seeing the desert and dunes on the ground, but from the air its absolutely breath-taking; it knocks the spots off the ballooning which is essentially 45 mins of up and down, with no flight path over the dunes. Visited them all – Dune 45, Big Daddy, Big Mama and a whole pile more; great elephant encounters, and lessons on tracking ? Superb – and more wildlife than you could possibly want – the only thing we didn’t see was leopard, and that’s really not surprising.

It then just got better and better with a great catch up with our mates in Swakopmund, a geological wonderland in Damaraland, the delights of the Etosha and then a final stop at the Cheetah park as a break before back to Windhoek & home; millions of photographs as per usual!

The one thing we have learned now, is that for us fuddy-duddies, the last day and night of the trip needs to be activity free, as we need the time to just catch up with what we’ve experienced and have a gentle repack before the long aircraft hauls begin.
Bench put together a remarkable Namibian experience for us and we had a wonderful trip, We will have to go back sometime, as there is still the North and South of the Country to do, and Juan, our guide had some lovely suggestions for a combination air/road safari next time ? Ultimate Safari’s, his company specialise in these boutique safari’s with Bench, and they are very, very good at it.
