Just got back from our self-drive through Namibia last week and things could not have gone better! A beautiful country full of fantastic views and all the animals you can eat (oh, and see :p).
I gave Gemma our schedule, told her that keeping costs low was our priority and then left everything up to her. Our trip was perfectly balaced and spaced between driving, animal sighting and relaxing at the beautiful lodges - she could not have done a better job!
Staying in the lodges also allowed us to keep fuel costs low by driving a Toyota sedan - aside from a couple of "hairy" spots (which we made it through), I'd say that a 4wd would not be needed for the North-Central route. CABs car-hire did a fine job getting us started off and checking us out - recommended.
Thanks for everything Gemma and, everyone - don't worry about her relocating to SA as I'm quite confident that her expert services will lose nothing in the move.
