We make our way through the historic town of Rehoboth, a former mission station just north of the Tropic of Capricorn, then take our front-row seats on a scenic nature drive through this 'thirst land', where trees loom and rocky shadows stretch out on the horizon against the setting sun.

  6. Day 6 Sossusvlei and Deadvlei Excursion

    In a country renowned for its epic landscapes, competition for the top spot is tough. But it is Sossusvlei and Deadvlei that rightly deserve this crown and it is where we begin our adventure today. Gaze up at the towering Dune 45, then meander into the eerie but beautiful photographers' paradise of Deadvlei, to snap iconic photos of dead camel thorn trees on a bed of white clay pans, perfectly framed by towering sand dunes and clear blue skies. Your early morning adventure in Sossusvlei complete, travel on to explore the ravine walls of the Sesriem Canyon, carved out by the Tsauchab River.

  9. Day 9 Swakopmund – Damaraland

    Follow Namibia's salt route en route to Damaraland, a place where mysterious flat-topped lava mountains and petrified trees cast shadows across the terracotta-coloured terrain. We make an important stop at Twyfelfontein to admire its ancient rock engravings, then explore the rocky-red Organ Pipes carved into the face of the mountain before arriving at our lodge - one of Trafalgar's 'Stays With Stories'. After settling in to our accommodation, we'll embark on a nature drive on the property.

GET provided a whole lot of documentation with very little explanation of what it was for.
In a word it was terrible. I filled out the Trafalgar comments form while I was there and meant to go into detail in a report to them when I got back. But I'm too busy with moving into a new house to do that right now. Suffice it to say that the van was totally inadequate for 8 people and luggage, no big windows for viewing, no big tires or heavy duty shock absorbers. The roads were unbelieveably bad!! All day long every day of the trip. The guide was very nice and knowlegeable but totally unorganized especially about lunches. And when Trafalgar changed the itinerary mid trip he didn't even let us know that until 9 pm the night before when we were expecting to stay another night in the hotel and do game viewing around that area. He also dragged us to another site to see the petroglyphs even the World Heritage site place for them was right at the lodge. The
Response from Grand European Travel:
We are terribly sorry to hear about your disappointing experience. We will be sharing this information with our team at Trafalgar and a member of our Guest Relations team will be in touch with you directly. Thank you for bringing this to out attention.
