Don’t just take our word for it

Well you have done it again!! We thought after a tremendous holiday in Galapagos, anything else would be a supporting role. Your carefully planned itinerary covered such a wide variety of animals, including local bird life, we found it difficult to keep up!! Your information/documentation and organisation (including wonderful surprises), were again to the fore, and your local Guide and driver were both superb. Thank you for a great holiday, everyone contemplating such a trip should join you on Namibia 2017 if they have not booked already!!

A "huge thanks" for an amazing holiday in Namibia. Although back to the daily grind, we are still smiling about the things we saw and did!

Martin and Helen, West Kensington, London

Thank you both so much for everything you did to make our recent trip to Namibia such a wonderful experience. Your careful planning, selection of accommodation, itinerary, guide and driver, and your unfailing attention to detail at every stage of the holiday made it all so easy and enjoyable for us, your guests. Your humour and professionalism shone through at every stage and we felt so safe and cared-for. I can’t believe we saw and experienced so much in the time – my head and my camera are full of pictures! I knew we would see animals but we also gained an in-depth knowledge of this fascinating and complex country and its courageous people. I honestly did not think I would enjoy it as much as our trip to Galapagos but in fact, it surpassed even that amazing experience. I am truly addicted to Furlongs holidays – you are the best and I can’t thank you enough for the incredible privilege of having travelled with you to Namibia. Can’t wait to see the itineraries for 2017 and the future!

Sandra, Luton, Bedfordshire.

We just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our fabulous trip to Namibia. From Richard greeting us at Heathrow, boarding cards in hand, through all the surprises and treats along the way, the fabulous scenery and wildlife, and the worry free travel. The accommodation was all wonderful, so varied and unique. We loved all the lodges, and the bungalows in Damaraland, with their little veg, fruit and flower gardens. The sunsets and sunrises were amazing, spectacular, beautiful and often seen with a glass of wine in hand, as for the scenery, stunning sand dunes and salt pans that defy imagination. On to the wildlife, there are no words to describe a herd of eight elephants, marching single file to the waterhole and ending up about 20 yards away, or tracking a pair of cheetahs and seeing mammals we had never heard of before, like an aardwolf, or steenbok.  Just amazing, we saw over 30 species of mammal, including lion, cheetah, leopard, giraffe, elephant, zebra, hyena, warthog and countless different antelopes. Thanks must go to August, whose driving and good humour was second to none, and your guide Uanee, whose good humour and knowledge of the country and it's wildlife was limitless. Thank you for all your help along the way, for sorting everything out and for the best holiday ever. 

Norma and Steve, Aylesbury, Bedfordshire.

A short thank you does not really cover the gratitude we have for your organisation and implementation of our wonderful trip to Africa. I could try to write a long thank you covering all the items that make the holiday so interesting and carefree for us, but that would take too much typing!  Suffice to say that both the Ecuador trip and the Namibia trip were superb holidays.

Russell and I wanted to thank you so much for our recent amazing trip to Namibia with Furlongs Travel. You made our trip truly unforgettable with not only your wonderful personalities but all the planning and little extra touches that you provided that made us feel totally at ease and stress free.

Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday in Namibia. It really was a dream come true for me and well exceeded my expectations. I loved the environment, the animals, the care you took of us and, of course, our guide Uanee and driver August. I was amazed by Uanee's breadth of knowledge. I learnt so much. You certainly know how to make the best choices of venues and staff, not to mention the food and wine!

A wonderful, memorable and enjoyable trip to Namibia. I am going to enjoy sorting my pictures out in the coming days and reliving the amazing experiences we were privileged to enjoy.

Just to say thank you so much for another stunning adventure - we really enjoyed it.
