Travel Beyond is an excellent recommendation. I've also used Chris Liebenberg of Piper Heath. I was networked to him by Craig Beal. Chris was born and raised in Namibia and has extensive knowledge of the safari industry there. He is also very knowledgeable about many of the African safari destinations.

A lot of safari camps only have 6 to 10 rooms. Folks are allowed to make provisional bookings while they sort out their travel arrangements. A good agent will work with the camp to determine if there is softness in any of their bookings. It's like putting together a jigsaw puzzle. The process goes much more smoothly with a well connected agent.
