Travel reviews by Mr H from Switzerland


New country - great trip

On this trip, I visited Mozambique between 14-Sep-2012 and 28-Sep-2012 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

As we had not been to Mozambique before had no prior expectations. However it is clearly on the up touristically especially in respect beach holidays.

Safari part was good for us since it had a "freshness" that has disappeared in some other destinations as safaris have become more "packaged" and up market. People very friendly and staff performance level good

Excellent trip -no hitches in organisation

On this trip, I visited Botswana, Namibia, South Africa & Zambia between 31-Aug-2007 and 25-Sep-2007 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Expert Africa as good as last time.

Chris gave good overall initial guidance and Lucy Scholte was just great and worked continuously to make sure we got what we wanted on our itinerary. Even after trip had been paid for Lucy still worked up to departure to get changes in bookings to meet requested loges/camps.

Not many agents bother like that once the cheque is in. Really outstanding work by Lucy and much appreciated.

We would certainly use Expert Africa again.
