On this trip, I visited Tanzania between 16-Oct-2014 and 26-Oct-2014 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Our safari once again was an intense and amazing wilderness experience, made special by the people,places and sights away from the crowds.
Everything went smoothly and Ruaha in particular draws us back.

My Feb 2014 trip

On this trip, I visited Tanzania between 3-Feb-2014 and 10-Feb-2014 and I travelled alone.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

I rarely visit a place more than once -life is short and there is so much to see. Having returned from my second trip to Kwihala I am about to plan my third. I think that says it all.

My Jun 2011 trip

On this trip, I visited Botswana between 21-Jun-2011 and 3-Jul-2011 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

I initially used the Bradt guide to research our holiday and then selected Expert Africa from a shortlist of 3 companies -all of which had been given the same brief.

This meant I'd felt we had made good choices for our first trip to Botswana and others commented on what a good balance it was.

So the advice we received ensured we had a very good trip which exceeded expectaions which were alreay high.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

I cannot fault the help and advice given by Lucy Copson and Nick Hobbs - nothing was too much trouble and they really made every effort to meet my initila brief and provide alternative options.

Although i didnt choose Africa Travel Resource to book my holiday I did like the ranking system they used, which enabled us to refine our choices and keep within budget. Perhaps something like this would be a useful addition to your site.
