When we did the Garden Route (5 weeks self drive) we did not have any joy with planning for Namibia. Agents we tried either, pushed us on to their 'set' tours, or , would not give full info( such basics as car hire costs !!).
We loved the G>R so much we want to revisit after seeing Namibia.
Thinking of starting at Victoria Falls and finishing somewhere past the Garden Route.
We prefer spending on time and content , rather than on upmarket accomm. Time only limited by overall cost.
Wife and I are active pensioners. I am the driver. Travelled very widely in 3rd World so do not expect Western standards everywhere. Like wildlife, friendly locals, walking (not too strenuous), the unusual less touristy sites, fishing (for me), hands-on wildlife, maybe a bit of volunteering.
Recent posts have given us hope of finding an operator who has the knowledge and listens. Gemma D. ?
Best time ? October maybe ?
Would consider some internal flights to cut down on very long drives if cost allows.
This is our Golden Wedding Year . Trip Advisor members have given us great help on other trips, so thanks in advance.
