Unsure about Namibia trip

Jump to last reply

We have been thinking about going to Namibia with Wilderness Safaris, taking the Great Namibian Journey which is about 13 - 14 days.

I read the itinerary, and it seems there is a great deal of driving. From the descriptions, the scenery seems great, with varying changes from desert to coast. This is a very expensive trip, and I'm wondering if the sights are as wonderful as the travel agent and Wilderness Safaris state. Also, is an organized trip the way to go, or should we go independently? With Wilderness Safaris, there can be up to 8 people in the group and we will be with them constantly in the Land Rover and at camps. The travel agent said that it would be alot more expensive to go independently. We have always traveled by ourselves.
I waiver whether to go at all, and then questioning whether to tour or not to tour.I can't seem to make up my mind. Last year we went on safari to South Africa and Botswana, and that was superb.

I'm looking for advice. I have to decide soon. I want to go if the sights are as great as we think. This has to be a spectacular trip since we are celebrating a special anniversary.
