My May 2014 trip

On this trip, I visited Botswana & Zambia between 25-May-2014 and 6-Jun-2014 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

We had a wonderful trip--even better than our first visit 2 years ago. Many thanks to Nick Hobbs for interpreting our needs and producing a superbly balanced itinerary.

CHITABE camp was truly exceptional and will live long in our memories.

We will start saving for our next trip.

My May 2012 trip

On this trip, I visited Botswana between 28-May-2012 and 7-Jun-2012 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

The more we reflect on it, the better it was. We cannot speak highly enough of the trip and are busy saving for a return. Expert Africa has been great all through the process. Nick Hobbs has been patient and informative, and recommended an excellent first trip to us. We'll probably get better cameras for the next trip, and perhaps consider some different experiences - specific fishing or bird watching elements, and perhaps a trip to Livingstone. Obviously a very good model of trip has been developed, with early starts, some quite time in the afternoon, regular food and drink etc.

We enjoyed the people we met - both guests and Botswana people. A fantastic country.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

If it was not so expensive, we would be going back sooner rather than later - but we appreciate the need for the costs to be as they are. Perhaps there is a loyalty scheme for returning customers?
