    Dear CanadianPrague Happy 2020 to you and family! I have read your wonderful review with sincere appreciation for first-of-all choosing us, for traveling with us and also for taking the time to share your experiences with us and with greater travel-community around the world. Thank you! Your kind words of appraisal and commendation have been passed on to Rambo, who received it with sincere gratitude. Rambo diligently looks after the Guests, ensuring each of your experiences receive his engagement and attention. I cannot be more proud of him, and am appreciative that he shares his vast knowledge and enthusiasm with Guests throughout the tour - in fact adding to great experiences! I have also passed on your appreciation to David, who has Guests' best interest always as priority on his mind. He is part of our client-oriented success story with numerous Guests commenting how appreciative they are of his attention to detail and diligence in his replies, as well as consideration and easiness in communication. Most of all I am so pleased and delighted to hear that you are already missing Namibia and even planning to return! You are more than welcome back! Please send David or me an email and we will be there for you. Thank you, once more, for traveling with us! As Ernest Hemingway put it: “All I wanted to do was get back to Africa. We had not left it, yet, but when I would wake in the night I would lie, listening, homesick for it already." - from Green Hills of Africa Warmest regards Philip

    Dear Milomali :-) Thank you so much for your enthusiastic and such positive review - your kind words are much appreciated! I am so glad that inspite of a short-notice and very 'last-minute booking' we were able to create an attractive itinerary for you and most of all that you have fully enjoyed your Namibian safari: near-nature, camping style as requested! So wonderful to hear that our response to your enquiry, guide who was traveling with you and vehicle which we provided, as well as meals, accommodation arrangements and attractions were satisfactory. We as well - have this great satisfying feeling that your visit to Namibia was filed with awesome adventure and memorable experiences! With warmest regards Philip

    Thank you very much Jadewoltmann with family and friends for traveling with us as well as for such positive words! We made sure that you have pleasant and truly memorable tour and it's so great to read that it actually 'blew your expectations'! I made sure to pass on your appraisal to Ian. Guide is such an important part of Guests journey, for he may either creatively enrich it or (if not engaged) completely 'spoil' the experience. Good to hear that Ian was personable as well as knowledgeable. As you have noticed on your tour, Namibia is a huge vast country and to get from one to another destination there will always be a distance to conquer - yet what experiences await on arrival! Once more thank you for your positive feedback! With kind regards Philip

    Dear Judy M Thank you for your wonderful feedback! Our 12 days Namibia Highlights itinerary was created to give a really good 'glimpse' into Namibia while visiting many key destinations including two UNESCO World Heritage sites: Namib Sand Sea (with Sossusvlei, Dune 45, Dead Vlei), Damaraland with Twyfelfontein UNESCO World Heritage site - Bushmen rock engravings, and wildlife of Etosha NP. I am pleased to hear that you valued our service provided on your tour as per accommodation, travel comfort, overall experience and most-importantly knowledgeable and engaged tour guide. Who has, as well, received your kind review with appreciation. We hope to see you back in Namibia - on the next memorable adventure tour! With kind regards Philip
