Rwanda

On this trip, I visited Rwanda between 21-Aug-2011 and 1-Sep-2011 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Absolutely fantastic. Rwanda is a beautiful country.

Our guide Theo was wonderful and we saw so much more than the gorillas (which were amazing). We would strongly encourage anyone to visit Rwanda and to see as much of the country as possible.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

the only small improvement would be to have one night at Kibuye and then a second night either at Gisenyi (FCO permitting) or back in Kigali. That would still leave time for a boat trip on the lake but would provide nicer accomodation.

A great trip

On this trip, I visited South Africa & Zambia between 28-Sep-2009 and 15-Oct-2009 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

We really loved our trip and would not hesitate to use Expert Africa again or to recommend you. We really appreciate the extra advice you gave us when planning our trip.

It would be handy on the itinerary if more details could be given on transfers for example that the flight from Livingstone to Luangwa was via Lusaka and the approximate length of the onward transfer by jeep - it is good to know what to expect!
