Unforgettable safari

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 25-Aug-2013 and 7-Sep-2013 and I travelled alone.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Thoroughly enjoyed my holiday, and the game viewing in South Luangwa in late August/early September was truly unforgettable.

Five nights in Lower Zambezi was probably a bit long for me, as the game was not as good, but it is a beautiful area and good for relaxing.

Fantastic holiday

On this trip, I visited Tanzania between 18-Nov-2012 and 26-Nov-2012 and I travelled alone.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

If you want a stunning park with lots of animals and very few people, Ruaha may well be for you.

I do recommend trying to stay both at Jongomero and at one of the camps in the north is you can: the landscapes (and weather patterns) are different, and it's a wonderful way to get a good sense for the sheer vastness of this wonderful place. Highly recommended.

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 13-Jun-2012 and 21-Jun-2012 and I travelled alone.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

The whole trip was excellent, as you will see from my reviews, and it was seamless, too, thanks to the Tours Africa representative at the airport on arrivals and the pre-arranged taxi services.

Shenton Safaris was everything I wanted, and I can't wait to return.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

For someone who is used to piecing together entire trips on my own, I am hugely impressed by Expert Africa's knowledge and service. When I first contacted Ellie I thought I knew exactly what I wanted, but with just a few emails back and forth she ended up proposing the ideal itinerary - thank you!

I will be recommending you highly, and will certainly use you again for future trips to Africa.
