After all participants returned home safely again, I would like to express my gratitude for the detailed advise and preparation of our family trip. There were no problems whatsoever. All wishes which came up during during our safari, were granted momentarely by our tourguide Wimpy. A special thanks to our Guide for his competency.
Some family members will include Namibia and Compass Travel again in future. We hold Namibia in our best memory.
Family Musmann - Germany Sep 2018
We were very happy with the composition of our 20 day guided tour through Namibia. All the Lodges can be judges as ‘excellent’ ( only at one Lodge in epupa the service was not so satisfactory). We had many fascinating animal sightings , for example a large herd of 46 elephants at one waterhole, various prides of lions, and an unusual sighting of a leopard mother and cub; Unfortunately the windows of a Toyota Quantum are not ideal for photography ( with larger equipment) in the gamepark where one cannot get out;
Our Guide Franke has provided us with a wonderful safari experience and we learnt a lot about the history and life in Namibia. Many thanks for the jovial time in beautiful Namiba. We shall travel to your country again and will recommend Compass Travel Namibia to everyone.

Okonjima Lodge has once again, like on previous occasions, been THE highlight of our Namibia safari. It is just beautiful to watch the animals from the comfort of your room or while lying in bed; the activities and sightings were just spectacular; the cheetah walk in the afternoon and the leopard tracking in the morning are a special experience. The ambiance and tasty food in the elegant farm hall of Plains Camp, had a special charm for us; we would have even liked to stay longer than 2 nights.
We were also pleased about Sossusvlei Dune Lodge ( NWR) which is the only lodge in the area, which offers self-drive customers the possibility to enter the park before sunrise for a visit to Sossusvlei. Hohenstein Lodge is highly recommendable for its special appeal of the surrounding Erongo mountains. We also loved Palmwag Lodge; The only unpleasant experience is as always, the service and the food in the National restcamps in Etosha. Next time we will definitely try the privately run lodges on the outside of the park. Many thanks for the perfect organisation . We enjoyed every minute. Till our next tour to Namibia.
Family Seibel - Germany - March 2018
We were very happy with the travel organisation and the route-planning, which included our detailed accommodation wishes; The Travel documents were perfect and contained many valuable tips.
All in all we can recommend Compass Travel Namibia wholeheartedly. We had a wonderful time and intend to visit unrivalled Namibia. very soon again
Party Kellenbenz - Germany -Okt 2017
We have never experienced such perfectly organised and unforgettable journey - and we travel a lot all over the world!
For the first time on a trip, we had such comprehensive travel documents. Despite the short-term reservation, you found a route, which could not have been better. The Lodges were all top and are reccommendable.
Many thanks again for your efforts – and also for our meanwhile prefectly booked second Namibia trip next year
Hans-Joerg & Elisabeth – Innsbruck/ Austria - September 2017
Our Namibia family trip was just perfect, mostly because of our first class tourguide Franke; He gave his best every day. He showed us the beauty of the country with loads of information and insight. We rate the lodges altogether with éxcellent’; Everything was perfectly organised from the office, from the information folder to the daily sequence of events. We will probably visit again very soon.
Family Zahrl - Austria June 2017
We had our first self-drive trip in Namibia and were very happy with the organisation of our trip. It was very helpful that we could be with WhatsApp in contact with the office and when we had questions en route, they were answered promptly. The animal world in Namibia was one of our highlights, but all the other stations and lodges from the Kalahari to Epupa, also had their own style and atmosphere. We were a little disappointed about the service and food in the Etosha Camps and the public toilets in the Park. Also the extreme dust on the sand and gravel roads too a little getting used to and was not so pleasant. The DBL Cab 4x4 rental car was excellent with the double fuel tank and the fridge in the car. Okonjima Lodge was the perfect ending to an excellent trip without any problems.
We had a great time and will definitely recommend Compass Travel further
Marcus & Edith – Germany June 2017
We are busy sorting thousands of photographs and can therefore mentally re-live the wonderful world of Namibia again. Apart from the details stated in the questionnaire, all went perfectly well and we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday.
Karin & Volker - Germany
Our third journey to Africa - the second time in Namibia- perfectly organised by Compass Travel Namibia
The preparations were perfect and excact as usual, so that nothing could go wrong. The distances were well calculated and we had 3-night stays at a mixture of Lodges and guestfarms- all of them offered something special. There was nothing to complain about;
Always a highlight is a visit to the Etosha Nationalpark; Due to the draught there was an invasion of animals at the waterholes. We were able to watch a few herds of elephants, possibly 80 of them in total, at the Okaukuejo Waterhole alone. We also managed to see four of the “big five”,ie. rhino, leopard, lion, elephant as well as hyeanas, cheetahs and wild dogs.
We thank you for the organisation of yet another wonderful trip through Namibia

Things have moved ahead in Namibia since our last visit a few years ago. It's good to see.
Our trip was wonderful, everything went very smooth, from car to accommodation. Ongava Lodge was the highlight, Swakop was great, even got to visit our old uranium project at Husab. The Strand Hotel was excellent, too. Vingerklip Lodge setting is great. Hilton Hotel in Windhoek is very nice, although we could not get our room until 4pm, after the 5 hour drive from Etosha.
Thanks for the perfect organisation!
Family McIntyre - Australia
Our group tour in Namibia went without hick ups and the group was also happy with the Bus and the guide. All lodges were of high standard and guests could experience wonderful activities and scenery.
We will come again!
Birds Eye Tour - Israel
One special highlight of our 4 week trip, was the stay at Doro Nawas Lodge where we were able to view a group of desert elephants close up during a gamedrive in the Aba Huab valley. Another memorable experience was in the Kgalagadi Nationalpark, when we saw four cheetahs feeding on a wildebest in the early morning. The lions who spent their time during the day at the Kalahari Tented Camp was another big sighting, amongst many others.
We enjoyed our sixth trip through beautiful Namibia tremendously and would like to thank you for organising everything so perfectly and we were also able to experience some news lodges. We hope to be able to visit this wonderful country again some time.
Maria und Hans - Switzerland
· We had a wonderful time in Namibia with partially unusual and special lodges, for example the Onguma Tree Top Camp, the amazing ‘Movie- House’ and the scenic Omarunga Lodge at the Epupa Falls. Many thanks for the wonderful time, your friendly hospitality and the organisation of this magic trip. I hope to visit again very soon!
