    3.5 - Good

    Overall we had a good time, but do not waste your money booking Victoria Falls with G Adventures. We were a group of four travelling as part of 12 - 14 people for 21 days. Started in Cape Town, then on to Kruger National Park, Karongwe Private Game Reserve, Namibia, including Etosha National Park and then onto Victoria Falls. The transportation was the most disappointing aspect of this trip. The driver drove to fast for the dirt roads in Namibia, we hit a lot of dips which made us get air and then get slammed back into our seats. We had our seat belts on, luckily. My husband got the worst of it, he could not even go on the game drives in Etosha the next day. He had to stay in bed on pain killers to elevate the pain. We had a 15 year old young man who complained about his back until Victoria Falls due to the Roads and another who had to spend a day in the passenger seat by the driver again due to the day before and the bad driving. They tried to justify the speed saying it would be worst if we slowed down, we insisted and the driver slowed down and man what a different, was so much better. We also though based on our itinerary showing Windhoek to Victoria Falls we were on a direct flight to Victoria Falls. Wrong, we had to get up and be gone from the hotel at 5:00 a.m. to get to the airport for a flight to Johannesburg, 2 hour wait before continuing onto Victoria Falls. There was a direct flight to Victoria Falls which left 5 minutes before our flight to Johannesburg. So disappointing as by the time we arrived at the hotel and got checked in we only had a few hours in the evening. The cost of purchasing this trip from G Adventures is not worth it. Booking it ourselves would of saved us time and money. Do your research and go on your own and enjoy the trip. We felt rushed once we arrived as we only had one full day to enjoy this magnificent place.
    G Adventures commented on this review
    Thanks for taking the time to give such detailed reviews of your time in Africa with us. The comfort of the vehicle and the speed driven are things we shall look into. Our apolagies for any discomfort caused. In regard to the Victoria Falls flights, again, we will review to see if we can offer any additional value as part of this package. On balance, we are so happy to see that things were positive overall. This is a great part of the world, and we are happy to have shared it with you.
