Reviews & Feedback

Reviews & Feedback

Just wanted to say how much we thoroughly enjoyed our safari holiday to Namibia. There is nothing I would change, the trip was exactly what we wanted it to be. We found the detailed itinerary particularly helpful, in fact invaluable, especially as it gave us detailed driving instructions, route co-ordinates for the SatNav and also estimated timings. We were hugely impressed!
We liked all the camps that Katharine chose for us, each was different in its own way and each experience at the respective camp was unique. I would have no hesitation in recommending The Big 5 to anyone wishing to book a safari holiday. In terms of your rating for our holiday I would give you a 10 without hesitation.

John & Lesley - Essex

Sossusvlei is a natural wonder with stunning views in all directions - arrive at sunrise for outstanding photo opportunities!!

I just wanted to thank you once again for all the time and effort you put into making our holiday in Namibia such a fantastic experience. Our passionate and delightful guide in Etosha had such knowledge of the reserve and what it had to offer including grasses, trees and special birds that were a privilege to see!
