Tour operators in Namibia

After a couple years of lurking/dreaming I finally have the time to stop dreaming and start travelling. Earlier this year we did a self guided mostly dirt trip in Baja Mexico, but now I'd like to try a 2 to 3 week guided tour in Namibia/S Africa in the first part of 2008. I've looked at all the linked and sponsored operators (thanks moderators) but still would like to get personal experiences. Has anyone out there had any experiences with tour operators in these areas? If so please let me know.

Do you want to work through a tour operator or perhaps hire a bike and do a self ride? if so try someone like gsadventures, based in Johannesburg.
regards,
Martin
