Seychelles

On this trip, I visited Seychelles between 18-Feb-2013 and 5-Mar-2013 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

What a very nice place to go holidaying.................but you know this already.

On their flights with Etihad, they commented:

We hate long haul and this experience was refreshingly not too bad.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Just for the record leaving luggage at Mahe Airport cost us 10 EURO a DAY!
Our one bag for our trip to Bird Island would have paid to a few days car hire!!
The airline said that they would have stored our bag for free [excluding the tip]

Zanzibar another holiday we will not forget

On this trip, I visited Tanzania & Zanzibar between 6-Mar-2010 and 21-Mar-2010 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Well organised and just what we wanted.
Actually it was 2 weeks of 5 star treatment in 5 Star locations.

While we were rather concerned that the BA return flight would be cancelled we had to phone your office and tell them we were at risk. In the end all was well.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Second holiday with Expert Africa and again you came up trumps........though I suspect that my wife had a lot of input as well!

Amazing bang for your bucks!

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 3-Oct-2008 and 16-Oct-2008 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

I have run out of ways of saying excellent............we cried all the way home on British Airways flight.

Suggestions for improvement:

I hope that Tafika's recipe of giving the best, not spoiling the dish by overloading the camps, and charging a price that gives them the return they want is the right one for the future.

A costly holiday no doubt; but cheap at the price !
