    Elephantastic

    This was an amazing trip covering thousands of kilometres, a plethora of wildlife and geological features and some insight into some of the cultures of the countries visited.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    I thought it would be the elephants crossing the river at Chobe, or canoeing on the Zambesi, or Victoria Falls, or seeing giraffes or or or - the list goes on. However, the sudden gorgeous orange red glow of the African sunsets will stay with me forever as will sitting by the waterhole in Etosha and watching the animals arrive, especially the 40 elephants.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Our guides were Ende - the outgoing, but sensitive, leader anxious to please us whilst keeping us in check to make sure that we fitted in a very full itinerary, Andrew who was quietly extraordinarily efficient and always on the lookout to make sure we were all right, and Innocent whose knowledge of birds and stars was phenomenal. Their cooking was amazing - don't believe the trip notes' description of 'basic'. It wasn't long before we felt we were travelling with knowledgeable friends. Thank you Ende, Andrew and Innocent.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Take a hat, binoculars, anti mosquito spray and keep clothes to a minimum. Warm sleeping bag, (possibly + liner). Some long journeys, so you might want a kindle.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Great, though if you are just into wildlife, there may be a better trip for you.

    Amazing Southern Africa

    Full on tour of Namibia, Chobe, Vic Falls and Cape Town which was enjoyed by my family of 4 , age range 16-53. Should have taken season 3/4 sleeping bags for the camping as southern Namibia is cold at night in August! The hosts Ande Andrew and Innoccent were efficient at running a tight ship.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Chobe National Park at sunset with the birds in their flocks going to roost. Watering holes in Etosha National Park were phenomenal.At one point there were at least 40 elephants by the water together with impalas, zebras, eland and a couple of giraffes,not forgetting various bird species. Sossusvlei dunes ever phenomenal in Namibia and Deadvlei’s skeleton acacias very photogenic. Sunrise and sunsets have left a golden impression of the entire holiday.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Excellent time keeper who has leadership qualities of an army general which he relaxed once he had sussed out the group.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    For the camping trip ensure you take a suitably warm sleeping bag and clothing . Travel light as there’s a lot of loading and unloading into the truck. Soft back packs are ideal.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Thank you for a memorable trip.

    Victoria Falls to Cape Town

    Really good trip. The three guides/managers, Ende, Molifi and Clifford - complementary characters -were excellent, worked really hard together, always anxious to show passionately aspects of their culture and countryside and draw us in so we could propagate the good news at home. A long route, but periods of driving appropriately broken up with stops at interesting places, and plenty of impromptu stops when interesting birds and animals were spotted out of nowhere by our guides. Good to see village homes and relate to people’s lives at Ngepi - more such opportunities elsewhere would be good. The ballon ride option over the Namibian Desert at sunrise was excellent, but creating time in the programme to ballon at dawn over the sand dunes further south would be good. A day or two more in Cape Town would be welcome - Table Mountain was shrouded in mist but, frustratingly, cleared the day of our departure. For those of us going home on the early afternoon flight via Johannesburg, this was too late, but it would have worked for those on the BA direct flight in the early evening. Exodus should try and book the direct flight whenever possible, to maximise time and avoid disruption.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Amongst many, climbing the crest of a sand dune to watch the sun break above the horizon and cast moving, curved shadows over the undulating landscape, bringing it to gently stiring three dimensional life. Meeting wonderfully open and welcoming people, rightly proud of their countries. Watching in awe as an enormous bull elephant in heat, with just one tusk, lumbered up, turned to look at us for a while in our game jeep, metaphorically shrugged its shoulders, and moved on. That could have been difficult, murmured our guide.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Al three excellent, worked together wonderfully. Can still hear Ende’s ever present infectious laugh.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Spare torch and plenty of batteries. Take South African Rand - these are welcomed in Namibia on a one to one basis for the Namibian Dollar. A sheet sleeping bag for the warmer nights in the tropics.

    An adventure not to be missed

    From beginning to end this was an amazing adventure ....every day filled with wow moments

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    So many, the mighty Victoria Falls, watching the elephants play in Chobe, the peace gliding down the Orange River or the spectacular Fish River Canyon. For me the just watching the activity at the water hole in Etosha.....fantastic

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Siza and Endi (and Sylvia in Namibia) were just brilliant. Cant believe what Siza managed to cook on BBQs and gas rings!!! Food was fabulous.....Endi was always there with a smile and the most infectious laugh....I'm only 5 foot tall and he made sure he was always there to help with the tent because I was "height challenged". Sylvia was only with us in Namibia but her knowledge and passion for the animals, birds and plants was evident ....she was brilliant.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Just go with the flow. This is not a holiday it's an adventure. Be prepared to be hands on, this was NOT a fully serviced camping trip, we were expected to erect and dismantle our own tents. There are some long drives but worth every minute.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Just book it...
