We toured Namibia for two weeks with SOA covering almost 2500 miles. However, for the first week of the trip, fifteen persons were crammed into an airport transfer vehicle with no leg room, no reclining seats and very uncomfortable. I booked this trip almost one year in advance only to be told upon arrival that there were no SOA vehicles... More

SenseofAfrica, General Manager at Sense of Africa - Day Tours, responded to this review

Dear Joseph. We are sorry that your experience was not what you had hoped for. The vehicle, albeit not one of our own, is usual and ordinary for touring in Namibia, but also very common in South America. Many of our peers utilise it, and with 22 seats, should be sufficient space for a group of 15. We regret our... More

We did a 12 night tour and travelled the length and breadth of Namibia. It involved early starts every day but there were plenty of toilt stops and stops either for lunch or at a supermarket or bakery to pick up snacks.

Dear Jac. Thank you for this awesome report. Although my response is extremely late, it is because we had a dormant Tripadvisor presence. It is our aim to see guests have lifetime experiences and we are pleased you enjoyed yours. More

'Sense of Africa' operated a Ecco 'Canyon and Deserts' 8 night 9 days tour for us in the south and centre of Namibia. It was efficiently run and everything went well. Our guide/driver was efficient and a very good game spotter with a good knowledge of the history of the area. We are glad we didn't self-drive as distances are... More

used the company for transfers which worked fine on arrival, unfortunately the driver overslept on my departure, but you will be given an emergency number and you just wake up staff.

Well planned tour, excellent guide, lodges generally OK, but one or two not quite up to it. Two were not good - one had poor food and an awful packed breakfast, the other was very average foodwise, but poor with long distance accommodation, unsuitable for the older or less able person. Our grading would range from 1 star to 5... More

This tour was organised by "Sense of Africa", but the air transport was through "Wings Over Africa - Namibia". After a flight from Johannesburg to Windhoek, we noted that the Windhoek customs and immigration people are vying to win the coveted world award for the "Worst, and slowest and most frustrating welcome to a country". We think they did pretty... More

We did a 8 day/9 night trip around Namibia with Sense of Africa (SoA) taking in Sossusvlei, Sesriem Canyon, Swakopmund, Twyfelfontein, Etosha and Windhoek etc as part of a three week honeymoon trip in southern Africa. SoA was booked through another tour operator which organised our whole three-week trip. We had very high expectations of Namibia but unfortunately, our overall... More
