A wonderful trip with plenty of up close and personal experiences with animals. Lying in bed at night listening to lions roaring in the distance and having elephants in camp literally metres from you is truly amazing (if not a little scary). Dave was our guide, his knowledge is vast and he shares it most willingly.
Most people relate Africa to animals but there is much much more to be seen, including driving for 7 days through the spectacular scenery of the Namibian rivers and gorges with each day better than the last. Then there was the spectacular skeleton coast, quad biking, climbing sand dunes for sunrise, visiting villages, flying over the Okavango Delta, visiting Victoria Falls, and much more.
Driving in your own vehicle allows time out when traveling in groups, even if you know most of the people in your group as we did. The vehicles were comfortable and well equipped, but if there was anything missing Self Drive staff fixed it very quickly.
Dave made crossing borders easy by letting us know what to expect as we approached each one and due to his understanding of the nuances of each particular crossing and of course the languages.
Arranging everything you need to make it to the Africa was covered by Linda's extensive lists and information that she provided in a timely manner.
We traveled in May, the weather was quite warm (+30) every day, the sky was always blue and the nights cool but not cold.
If adventure is what you are after then this trip will not disappoint.
