How about an 8 day LRE adventure in Africa?

I'm working in Namibia at the moment and quite fancy doing some form of self drive safari and a google search has found this rather pricey but I'm sure that it will be excellent choice of 2 LRE adventures out here. Not e that the price doesn't including getting to Namibia but does offer "the latest range of models sold by Land Rover" - I wonder if they have a Velar on the fleet yet? If it were Kenya then memories of Daktari come flooding back!

There would be an instant sense of humour failure in Copenhagen, Mumbai and Manila I would imagine! 2015MY Corris Grey SDv6 HSE Dynamic, preceeded by a 2.7SE RRS, a 3.6TDv8 RRS, several FFRR's and 2 Evoques.

United Kingdom 2013 Range Rover Sport SDV6 HSE Firenze Red

Namibia is an amazing place to visit, combine this with an 8 day LR Experience it will be fantastic. Windhoek is a really fascinating town to visit with some incredible architecture, despite being in the middle of nowhere. Combine this with a week in Cape Town (most flights from the UK will go via South Africa anyway) and you have the vacation of a lifetime. Even though I have been to Namibia before, I am seriously considering this..... if I can get Mrs. Jock interested as well!

Jock, the transfer times at CT can be tight due to SA's slow immigration system at all their major airports - for some odd reason the other crew who are joining here found that the routes for passengers in transit at Cape Town and Johannesburg were all closed and they had to go through the immigration process despite being in transit. I flew out via Frankfurt - BA from Scotland via LHR to Frankfurt and then Air Namibia Frankfurt to Windhoek with a 30 minute internal flight to Walvis Bay. Air Namibia's ecomony class was fine on an A330-200 - a busy flight full of people getting away from Europe on their holidays out in Namibia. Spring is just starting here day time in Windhoek was a pleasant 27c but night time a chilly 6c Walvis is the same.
There isn't much at Walvis for tourists, the town of Swakopmund is about 30 minutes drive up the coast, away from the fish processing works here in Walvis and that is the "seaside" resort to go to on this part of the coast. I would avoid staying in Walvis Bay as there isn't a lot here except a busy port, a dusty town and a big fish processing works that makes very smelly fish meal! 2015MY Corris Grey SDv6 HSE Dynamic, preceeded by a 2.7SE RRS, a 3.6TDv8 RRS, several FFRR's and 2 Evoques.
