This full day tour was really worth while because of the excellent organization and the beautiful landscape. Our driver and guide André is a wonderful person and in his friendly manner he told us a lot about his country and this great area we were visiting. On a rock site we had lunch and with surprise we noted that even champagne was served. We can only recommend this tour and are looking forward to return to Namibia soon.
