We discovered Discover Africa in October when we first went to the south of Namibia. They organised such a fantastic trip then that we decided to use them again. It also gave us a flexibility that you needs in these covid times if you need to change your bookings due to covid. We chopped and changed our dates a few times but they were always accommodating and fitted in with our requests. Their service and communication is excellent.
Our accommodation ranged from basic ( our choice on 2 occasions) and luxurious.
Discover Africa organised a Toyota Fortuna for us in Windhoek and we drove to Okaukuejo camp inside Etosha for 2 nights ( our choice ) Megan managed to secure us a waterhole premium chalet even though they were very busy. Even though it was basic and very busy because of school holidays , the premium chalets are really worthwhile to stay in for the early morning light and the animal viewing.
Thereafter we drove through Etosha to Onguma the Fort which was magical and luxurious. So many opportunities for game viewing at their waterhole and game drives. We would definitely go there again.
Our travels took us north along the Kunene river and then back south again. Other places we loved staying at were the Kapika falls lodge at Epupa falls and then further south at Camp Kipwe near Twyfelfontein. Camp Kipwe was isolated , loved the desert landscape , the sunsets, the staff , the food, the accommodation, everything. Other highlights were the desert elephant tour and the tour to burnt mountain,organ pipes and Twyfelfontein rock engravings. We would definitely go back there again.
Our last stop outside Windhoek was Omaanda hotel – luxurious , relaxing , beautiful pool , lovely staff and opportunities to do game drives walks etc. We had so many different wonderful experiences which can’t be captured in a short synopsis
Thank you Megan and Steve for making our trip so memorable.
