The best of Namibia & Victoria Falls - Le meilleur de la Namibie et des chutes Victoria

Written on: October 18, 2016   |   I visited in September 2016 We started off in the awesome Namib dunes at sunset and experienced the searing heat of the Sossusvlei, with flocks of oryx to keep us company. Then onward to the rock paintings and engravings at Brandberg and Twyfelfontein, even meeting up with the Damaraland elephants during a four-hour hike. Etosha was breathtaking, with such a variety of wildlife that it's almost impossible to describe. Boat trips on the Kavango and Zambezi rivers allowed us to connect with the local people and view wildlife from a different angle. We were delighted with the choice of lodges and our guide's thorough understanding of the country, its wildlife and history, which he enthusiastically shared with us.
_____________________________________________________________

Nous avons démarré par les impressionnantes dunes du Namib au crépuscule, avons fait l'expérience de la chaleur torride du Sossusvlei, accompagnés de troupeaux d'oryx. Ensuite en route vers les peintures et gravures rupestres du Brandberg et de Twyfelfontein, et avons même pu approcher les éléphants du Damaraland lors d'un trek de 4 heures. A Etosha nous avions le souffle coupé par le diversité des animaux évoluant dans leur milieu, une émotion mémorable. Des sorties sur les rivières Kavango et Zambèze nous ont permis de nouer des contacts avec les habitants, et de voir la faune sous un autre angle. Nous étions ravis par le choix des lodge et la connaissance approfondie de notre guide du pays, de la vie sauvage et de son histoire, qu'il a partagé avec nous avec enthousiasme.

We did our honeymoon with Biwakwango.

We have no complaints, the choice of dishes was perfect, authentic, natural and quality. Thierry's advice was precious and always tailored, personalized and courteous.

We also thank Biwakwango for the quality of e-mail exchanges and their responsiveness. A quick answer to any question.

The stay was fantastic and we le... read more

The 14-day circuit in Zambia was super well-organized and balanced between the 3 parks: Lower Zambezi, South Luangwa and Kasanka. The choice of lodges was perfect both for their hospitality and for the activities proposed and supervised by competent guides. We had unforgettable moments. Would recommend the canoe and the Muchinga escarpment! Thank you Thierry and at... read more

It was our second trip with Biwakwango. After S. Africa and the unforgettable Lesotho, we discovered Namibia. Gorgeous landscapes! Walls of ocher-colored dunes, picnic in the vast minerals, encounters with locals, super hike in Naukluft and watching a magnificent fawn in marvelous circumstances.

We wanted to combine a safari trip to South Africa with a couple of friends. We were keen to get off the beaten path. We contacted Thierry Biwakwango, a local agency, and his proposals were consistent with our expectations.
Our choice was wise. We left for 19 days in November 2015, where we did two safaris (Kruger and Imfolosi) and treks (Swaziland, Drakensberg r... read more

Biwakwango was our local service provider on a family trip to Earth Aventure. For us and our two children (11 and 13) it turned into private trip (2 participants couldn't embark from Europe). What a great experience we have lived: whale watching, sea lions and penguins in the south. A little bit of activity when we climbed Table Mountain! Then St. Lucia, Imfolozi a... read more

We contacted Thierry from Biwakwango in August 2013, explaining to him that we wanted to go to Africa for our honeymoon. Thierry very quickly picked up our interests and what we were looking to experience, and came up with a proposal which matched all our requirements, as we wanted to mix top-class safaris, adventure and luxury.

Not only was he very quickly ava... read more

Many mail exchanges with Thierry to build this three-week trip: 14 days driving through Namibia, two days to discover Victoria Fall falls six days and finally distributed in three destinations in Botswana. Thierry remained on high alert to answer all our questions and changes in the structures of our trip. He also offered alternatives that were ALL proven to be won... read more
