What people are saying about Etosha National Park, Namibia

I wholeheartedly recommend the guys for organizing a safari in Etosha! Funny, responsive, caring, attentive, knowledgeable guides! Our guide found us lions in the bushes, although before that the guide of the car in front missed them :) Despite the summer season, which is not very suitable for safari, we saw a lot of animals, including the black rhinoceros. We listened to many stories from the guide about different animals. And even after the safari - we had a few questions on the road through Damaraland - and our guide helped us with advice and later wondered if we were able to get there successfully. Also, as I understand it, you can try to negotiate other excursions in Namibia, if you need a driver around the country. Big hello guys, you are really great!

It was a very enjoyable experience! Ben our guide was fantastic, he had a deep knowledge of the animals and he was very friendly. He did a great job spotting animals and so we saw the 4 out of the big5. Also, each time there was something interesting, he was giving us all the time we needed with no rush to enjoy the animals and take photos. Our only complaint - for the organizer - is that the itinerary was stating that no water is provided (Ben however did gave us one bottle each). Given the price of the trip, there should be both water and refreshments included. In similar trips we had we also had the lunch included in this price.

The Guide was punctual, attentive and very friendly. The Park is very beautiful and you can spend a great day there. It was a great family day, we could see several animals and great landscapes.

Ben was the vest guide ever. He was really knowledgeable and a great driver. We've been able to see everything we wanted to.
