I visited in July 2011
My husband and I had the most wonderful trip through Namibia with Pieter in July 2011. He is a most entertaining and informative tour guide/host, and nothing is too much trouble for him, as was evidenced when my husband (who was then 81) fell ill when we were in the middle of nowhere - somewhere near Sossusvlei. Pieter contacted his doctor in Windhoek, and then drove us back there to see the doctor. His wife, in the meantime, had booked us into a very nice bed & breakfast where we could stay while my husband recovered. Pieter continued to care for us by popping in regularly, and he re-arranged our itinerary, so that we were able to continue a few days later and still end up in the Augrabies Falls National Park in South Africa, as arranged.
If you have never travelled in Namibia, this is an absolute MUST. The scenery is spectacular.
The accommodation Pieter organised for us along the was consistently of a very high standard, as was the food.
I cannot recommend this tour-operator highly enough. He will customise an itinerary to meet your requirements and, as far as possible, your pocket. He will take you to off-the-beaten-track destinations, as well as the well-known tourist attractions.
There were many, many highlights, so I shall mention only a few: the farm visit in the Erongo Mountains, which included a visit to a Bushman (San) village and an outing on foot into the mountains with the San hunters; trips into the Namib Desert from Swakopmund; a light-aircraft flight over the Namib Desert from Swakopmund; a visit to a farm near Keetmanshoop where we were taken by the farmer to see fossils and quiver trees; the quite stupendous Fish River Canyon. Our 4 days in the Augrabies Falls National Park (in South Africa) were also truly memorable.
Pieter and Suzy led a phenomenal tour of Namibia. Having wanted to to visit since college 30 years ago, my expectations were high.The reality was so much better than anything I could imagine. The Namib Desert and sand dunes were spectacular. The sunrise balloon ride and breakfast simply unforgettable. For any geology buffs, the desert landscape, fault lines, rock l...
Pieter took my dad and myself on a tour through Namibia for a couple weeks, early 2013. He was very helpful before we even met, via email, in order for us to arrange the itinerary that best suited our interests.
I loved the pace of our travels and Pieter's flexibility: I never felt that we rushing to places, or that we couldn't afford to spend a bit more time som...
If you have one safari to take in your life, Pieter Mostert's Blue Sky Namibia is the one to take. I've been on several safaris in Kenya and Tanzania, but never as instructive, fulfilling, and exciting as Pieter's. He is a naturalist who knows of what he speaks about the flora and fauna of Namibia.
In addition, he loves the country and takes great pride in tellin...
Pieter and I are friends for more than 30 years. We met the first time in 1981 when I hitchhiked around Namibia. I returned to Namibia in 2003 with my family and did a safari with him. The family loved it.
Pieter has an extraordinary knowledge of the fauna and flora of Namibia. It is so interesting to listen to him, that it is difficult to leave him and Namibia...
My wife and I went on a guided tour with Pieter a few years ago. The tour was very comprehensive, and Pieter was delightful and knowledgeable company. His enthusiasm for the country is hugely contagious, and he is an inexhaustible driver over great distances. Just the odd beer to refuel him after our long drives. Thoroughly recommended.
We spent two weeks in March of this year on a Safari tour in Namibia with Pieter and had a wonderful, memorable and informative trip. We stayed in a wide range of accommodation which were all great places to stay with wonderful hospitality everywhere we went. Pieter was very knowledgeable and gave us a wide range of experiences during our tour. We started in Windh...
In 2011, Pieter organised a 3-week tour for my husband and me. We LOVED it. Pieter is a well-informed tour guide, and charming host. He is also a very caring person, which we experienced when my husband was taken ill, which necessitated returning to Windhoek for 4 days. Pieter organised the doctor and accommodation in Windhoek, and made the necessary re-arrangement...
I am a very keen photographer and was attracted to Namibia by its dramatic scenery in particular Sossusvlei. The distances are huge and many of the roads not easy to drive on. Pieter was invaluable in putting together a tour for me that visited some of the less well known as well as acting as my driver and guide.
