Unforgettable. Not enough superlatives

On this trip, I visited Tanzania between 23-Sep-2010 and 9-Oct-2010 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Our trip went without a hitch as it did 2 years ago. We love Tanzania and it's people and it was wonderful to return. We can't wait to go back.

We travelled with Expert Africa previously and because of their efficiency, personalised service, knowlege and preparatory information as well as their competitve pricing. We returned and we were not disappointed.

There was one part of our trip that we would change and that was the trip to Lake Manyara. After Selous it felt so crowded and more like being in an open zoo than on safari. It was so disappointing and we perhaps would have been better just going to Bourganvillea Lodge for a relax and a dip in the pool that afternoon.

An unforgettable holiday/adventure

On this trip, I visited Tanzania & Zanzibar between 21-Jun-2008 and 6-Jul-2008 and I travelled with 4 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

The trip was unforgettable. We felt our itinerary was perfect with just the right amount of time in each place. We were overwhelmed by the warmth and friendliness of the people wherever we went which added enormously to the enjoyment of our time in Tanzania. It is certainly a country I would like yo go back to.

We felt Claire/Expert Africa did a fantastic job sorting our holiday and preparing us for the trip. We were really impressed with how smoothly it went considering how much we moved about.
