NAM2019: 10 Nights
The landscapes of Namibia were more than I had imagined and the people so friendly. All your hotels and lodges were perfect. Once again, many thanks for a wonderful holiday. We will certainly use Cox & Kings again!Ms. Canning
Difficult to choose between the tracking and finding of desert elephants in Damaraland, and the safari drive in Erindi, where we saw a host of different animals and witnessed a kill (two cheetahs on a springbok). Both expeditions were enhanced by the jeep drivers who showed enthusiasm, persistence and knowledge.Ms Sarah Dearman
