“A Fabulous Trip to Namibia, Botswana, Zambia and Zimbwawe”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

This year is our 20th anniversary, but we decided quite late, almost last minute (1 week before departure) to travel to Africa. After comparing different companies and tours on Internet, we finally select to join "Discover Namibia" because of the patience, quick response and organized arrangement. The final itinerary was so good that there were no repeated routes, no time wastage, and most important - meeting our low budget. These could only be achieved due to their experiences and good connection in the market. What turned out after the 15 days trip was an amazing and fruitful experience, which will surely bring us lots of good memory in our life. Thank you Gemma and Discover Namibia Safaris.

Taking this opportunity, I would also need to say a big thanks to our guide - Yvonne Morgans. No doubt she is a Wonder Woman. She took care of our driving, accommodation and guiding us to travel around different places, different countries. She is so capable that, even after 8 hours driving, she still has energy to set up the tents for us, cook our dinner and clean the dishes. Yvonne is also a computer. I think she has a GPS in brain ... she even knows the locations in big piece of deserts and how to find animals in Etosha Game Park!! She is so knowledgeable of the nature, no matter landscape, lifestyle of animals and also species (and even the sounds) of African birds! We are so lucky to have Yvonne to bring us so much fun in the trip and on the road.

If you have a plan to Namibia, this company would be no doubt a good choice ~~

“"Outstanding experience."”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

Hi Gemma,
We’ve just returned to Australia after a great trip to Botswana, Namibia and South Africa.
Namibia was fantastic and everything went smoothly. The car rental organiser Carla was extremely helpful and Andreas prepared the car very well for us. All our accommodation was great. Terra Africa was an excellent place to start our trip with welcoming hosts and very comfortable accommodation after our long flight. At Ai Aiba Martin showed us some fantastic D stretch technology to highlight the photos of rock paintings and the area was beautiful. We enjoyed the upgrade to the mini suite at Mowani (wonderful) and the amazing setting of Grootberg not to mention the experience of visiting the Himba people. We were even treated to an impromptu 33rd! anniversary celebration with the presentation of a cake and singing and dancing which was all good fun.
Dolomite was above expectation with a luxury tent overlooking the plains and amazing wildlife at a waterhole one morning where waves of animals and birds poured in for a couple of hours with only us around to view the spectacle. We had not expected to see very many animals so it was a wow couple of days. Okaukeujo waterhole presented us with 6 Black rhinos greeting each other one night about 11pm as we sat rugged up in our warm gear. Amazing. Waterberg offered more great scenery and we really enjoyed visiting the Cheetah Conservancy.
So a huge thank you to you and Yvonne and Namibia for providing such an outstanding experience.

“20 Day Namiba Tour”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

We found Gemma Dry and Discover namibia Tours and Safaris through tripadvisor. As we not able to find anyone locally (we live in Switzerland) who would tailor a self drive tour, we asked Gemma if she could help us. We couldn't have made a better choice for this trip of a lifetime for a family of four. Her advice on routes, places to stay were extremely helpful. The accommodation (both campsites and lodges) were all excellent and can be recommended. The choices she made for us show tha Gemma and her colleagues know the proprietors and their establishments. Since it was our first time in Namibia (and Africa), she patiently answered all questions and calmed any fears we had.

In any case we had an absolutely great three weeks in Namibia (with a short hop to Botswana). Every campsite and lodge were expecting us, the hire car was in excellent condition, the driving instructions were spot on and we would have had 24 hour support but didn't have any need.

When we had decided to discover Namibia, we had nothing but questions. Returning from our trip, we have many memories. A good portion of the transformation of questions to memories go to Gemma Dry and her colleagues: Thank you!

“Excellent Communications & Perfectly Organised”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

We found Discover Namibia through Trip Advisor. Initially we made contact with several tours operators to see what they might be able to offer. We quickly settled on going with Discover Namibia due to the very quick and detailed responses we received. We were not disappointed with this decision - trip was perfectly organised and meant we were able to relax and enjoy an incredible holiday. Thanks Gemma for a fantastic service and holiday!

“Namibia re-visited”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

We've just returned from a brilliant holiday in Namibia meticulously organised by Gemma Dry. The last time we went to Namibia our holiday was spoiled by the agent (from a very large organisation) who "lost" the booking to the most important part of our holiday and this time I admit I was cautious about booking with a company I hadn't heard of before, but I needn't have worried. We discussed what I wanted from the holiday by email - and Gemma responds to your emails very quickly. Not only did she run with everything I wanted, but made some very practical suggestions which improved the itinerary and answered all my queries about tips, fuel prices etc with patience and humour. Even suggesting dates to make a difference in price at one location. At the end of our holiday we had to make some changes and Discover Namibia Safaris was at the end of the phone to smooth it all out. Namibia is a fantastic country to visit, and if you must go (I'd rather you didn't as I'd love to keep it to myself!) Gemma and Yvonne at Discover Namibia Safaris are the people to help you get the most out of your visit. I would certainly book with them again and suggest you do the same.
