Charlotte & Peter Thornton

HI Desire
Thank you for arranging an absolutely fabulous holiday for us.
It was everything we could have dreamed of and more.

Hoodia Desert Lodge was just amazing – fantastic attentive staff and a beautiful setting. Great food etc. A home from home. We both felt that it was like being welcomed into Thomas’s home. That is the ambience they have managed to create.

Sossusvlei excursion was a absolute highlight. What was great about it, is that when you have a guide, you know what you are looking at and why. You aren’t just admiring the beauty without understanding. Jonathan was a great guide, taking us up big daddy dune and then running down onto dead vlei pan.
Will send some images separately.

The waterhole at Etosha did not disappoint ! Okaukuejo Camp – Great Waterhole chalet. From our veranda we could actually see if anything interesting was happening at the waterhole. Peter got amazing shots of elephants – a whole herd of between 40 and 50 elephants.

Onguma Lodge – wow – that was stunning as well. Food was excellent. Lovely warm and welcoming atmosphere. Great dining area waterhole. We had a wonderful old gentleman, Matheas, looking after us. What a character !! We commended him to management on departure.

Okongima was a little less personal, but very friendly staff and once again great food.
The work they are doing is amazing !

The Elegant Guest farm was also a lovely alternative to staying in Windhoek. The manageress, Gwen, was very attentive. They offered a complementary morning tea basket brought to our room. We also met the owner and once again felt that we were welcomed on a personal level.

Desire, all in all, your arrangements were impeccable, Everyone was expecting us and ready with a welcome drink and it was great to get little messages from you throughout our journey. We felt very looked after.

You did a superb job !! We can see that you have a passion for what you do !

It is worth warning future clients that there are no ATM machines in Etosha National Park and no wifi access.

It was an all round success and we have come back with AWESOME memories. Thanks once again and we will definitely recommend you to our family and friends !!!

Go well for now.
