My Jul 2012 trip

On this trip, I visited Tanzania & Zanzibar between 24-Jul-2012 and 8-Aug-2012 and I travelled with 5 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

A great safari/beach holiday. Excellent organisation and advice throughout from Expert Africa. We will certainly book with Expert on our next Africa trip.

PS - our driver Stanford at Ngorongora could not have been more helpful and knowledgeable - he gave us a real insight into the local culture and traditions and coped admirably with three very long days.

The transfers in Zanzibar were the opposite. The driver meeting us in Stonetown barely said hello and never said a word during the 80 minute drive to Baraza. The return trip back to Stonetown was not much better (although we were picked up at 4am!). We were dropped off at Stonetown airport with no offer of assistance to discover we had to wait over an hour before the Coastal desk opened. It would have helped if the driver had shown us where to wait and warned us that we were early - Stonetown airport is not exactly Heathrow T5!

Expert Africa were absolutely brilliant

On this trip, I visited Malawi & Zambia between 5-Aug-2009 and 21-Aug-2009 and I travelled with 4 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Anna was extremely knowledgeable and very efficient in organising our trip. She dealt very patiently with all our queries and requests and clearly knew Zambia inside out. As a result our whole holiday went like clockwork. We would definitely be very happy to recommend Expert Africa and Anna Devereux-Baker to anyone planning a trip to Africa and we will certainly use them for our next Africam adventure.
