Eventful southern Namibia trip
Our Southern Namibia trip was wonderful and eventful! Every station was different and diverse in many ways.
No matter if it was the Namib Desert, Lüderitz, Fish River Canyon or the Kalahari- everything was awesome!
Thank you again for the perfect organisation, everything worked out smoothly, as usual.

Our 5th trip to Namibia to our favourite lodges ( Heinitzburg, Erindi, Mowani & Damaraland Camp), was again a wonderful experience.
The Suite in Erindi was super, the food as well; The game on the drives were not so abundant, maybe because it rained a lot. Mowani was in every respect spectacular, just as we know it. Damaraland Camp was absolutely stunning, the staff was attentive and friendly, the guide was awesome, he had extensive knowledge of fauna & flora. Lodging was tip top, one really experiences TLC! So everything was excellent, exactly as expected. We look forward to our next trip to Africa.

Everything was top class!
There is only one assessment for the roundtrip in Namibia - absolutely top class!
We drove more than 2200 km with an 4x4 rental car: Windhoek-Etosha-Damaraland-Swakopmund-Sossusvlei-Windhoek.
Next to the breath-taking landscapes and the incredible beautiful encounters with people and animals, we had sensational Lodges in gorgeous locations.
Mowani, Mushara and Little Kulala were absolute top, but Okutala, Otjiwa and the Strandhotel too were highly recommendable establishments.
Sometimes we had guided tours f.ex in Mowani (Desert Elephants) in Otjiwa ( rhinos) and at Little Kulala (Sossusvlei), but we also explored many locations on our own. Everything no problem.
Namibia will stay as permanent feature in our hearts.Thanks again, Lisa

Wonderful experiences in Namibia
We will still draw a long time on our wonderful experiences and encounters in Namibia; it was a very special journey!
To end our trip at the Voigtland Farm was a great idea; Food & Service was good, Rooms beautiful; The breakfast with the giraffes on the last day topped it off perfectly; Thank you for organising this wonderful Namibia Safari.

Beautiful trip to the Atlantic Coast
Thank you for organising this great little trip for us. Africar Car Hire was very efficient and it all worked out very well.
We really liked the guesthouses you chose; the “Organic Stay” in Swakopmund has a nice outside area out of the wind. We ate at the Jetty 1925 and also at Ocean Cellar. It was all delicious. We enjoyed coffee and apple strudel at Cafe Anton and visited the museum which was excellent. One morning we experienced a wonderful catamaran trip with Carol Ann of Namibia Dolphin Cruises and we had an excellent guided tour over the dunes and along the coast to Sandwich Harbour.
We drove to Swakopmund on the tarr-road via Karibib and ate a real good lunch at Usakos Bistro. On the return trip we took the gravel road C28 and it was a great drive with a picnic; We actually preferred driving this route as the road was good and there was no traffic. The Olive Grove Guesthouse in Windhoek was also very pleasant
Overall we have really enjoyed our time in Namibia and would love to come back.

Travelling Namibia for the 35th time
I have traveled to over a hundred countries around the world but Namibia always draws me back. It is a beautiful country with frequently changing landscapes and nice people.
In September 2022 I was in Namibia for the 35th time with a group for three weeks, from the Angolan to the South African border.
As always, Compass Travel Namibia, Lisa, had prepared the tour very well for us. All accommodation was excellent and the rental car was top notch.
With pleasure I will come back next year and book again with Compass Travel. The process is always easy and hassle-free with good communication;
I can recommend the company wholeheartedly.

Amazing Customer Service
Great communications throughout our 3 week holiday to make sure everything was good. When changes were required the agency made it so easy, we always felt looked after from start to after arriving back home in UK.
Upon arrival in Windhoek we received a thick “Welcome Pack” with itinerary, maps, brochures and vouchers etc. All recommendations on the itinerary were spot on (fuel, food, visits etc).
We’ve travelled most of the world and never had this level of service.
A credit to Compass Travel Namibia.

Top rated accommodation & perfect planning
We had a fabulous 20 day 4,400 km self-drive journey through this unique country. Our record was a 400km daytrip with only ONE car crossing! Thanks to Lisa at Compass Travel everything went very smoothly, from 4X4 car rental to excellent info package and top rated selection of lodges and accommodation. Above all, it is the careful planning before departure that made everything so hassle free. We were kept informed of any Covid developments in Namibia and origin countries along the way so we could return to Europe well prepared. Knowing beforehand what a mess was expecting us in Europe, we could have stayed a little longer 😊
Country and travel agent highly recommended.

Camping & Lodge Safari in 4 weeks
We are still absolutely delighted by all the phantastic experiences we had on our holiday, after having to postpone it 3 times due to the pandemic regulations. Many thanks for the great planning and service. We were glad we only had to cut 4 days off our 5 week trip due to the new Travel regulations. During our quarantine, we than had ample time to sort hundreds of photographs and could re-live our holiday over again.

Exclusive Safari through a beautiful country
Everthing was perfectly organized! We had a phantastic and unforgettable holiday and were lucky to catch the flight home before the travel regulations changed again.
We were glad to have done the far distances to the Zambezi/Chobe Region by flight. The rest of the days on self-drive basis were leisurely and perfect as well, with a trip-ending at the wonderful Mowani Lodge.
We are coming again!

Adventure Trip in Corona Times
We had a beautiful and eventful trip through Namibia's Zambezi region; Especially the 4x4 drive to / from the Chobe flood plains on the Namibian side to Chobe Water Villas was adventurous, a little straineous, but very worthwhile. Every other Lodge en route had its own character and it was exciting again and again for everyone; To celebrate New Years eve at Nambwa Tented Lodge, in nature, surrounded by African game, will be unforgettable. We will forever remember this trip in Corona times and hope that the pandemic situation improves soon, so that we can plan our next Namibia trip soonest.

Kgalagadi Park a special highlight
This years tour through Namibia with my friends was again a full success.
The drive through the Kgalagadi Transfrontierpark was especially noteworthy, which we would definitely like to repeat again. Also the Sandwich Harbour Tour was an unforgettable experience.Travelling during Jan/Feb months was one of the best trips I have ever undertaken in Namibia.The chosen lodges were all perfect and my travel companions were totally happy with it.
The next Namibia trip will definitely be booked with Compass Travel again.

Impressive journey through Namibia, Zambezi, Chobe, Vic Falls
Our third trip through Namibia & the Zambezi Region has again been a great experience, we have collected lasting memories.
It was a special joy to do this trip with Lutz as tourguide again; Next to his perfect driving and care, we also had many interesting conversations. This has also brought us closer to Namibia once more.
We were perfectly cared for by Daphne & Mervil at Simwanza House in Kasane; The cottage is a perfect alternative to avoid the high costs of other accommodation in Botswana or in Vic Falls.
A special highlight this year was the sighting of a leopard with prey and a young one in a tree. Speaking for the whole group, many thanks for your perfect organisation.
