On this trip, I visited Rwanda, Tanzania & Zanzibar between 17-Sep-2012 and 30-Sep-2012 and I travelled with 5 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

The trip was amazing, Rwanda exceed our expectations and I wished we'd stayed longer. Selous is a worthy extension and I couldn't have been happier with all the guides, transfers, flights and all but one of the hotels!

I would like to put in a plea that EA consider booking Rwandair air connections between Kigali-DAR/Kili. They are by far the most efficient and organised airline I've used in Africa and for clients looking to do a similar trip I would opt to book your own internal flights, than go back to Nairobi using EA partner airlines.

Thanks to Ellie and all at EA for organising a fabulous trip for us.

Expert Africa

On this trip, I visited Botswana & South Africa between 21-Apr-2010 and 1-May-2010 and I travelled with 3 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

We had a real nightmare with the Volcano Ash and had to cancel the first part of our trip to SA. Ann worked tirelessly to sort out options if ourre-scheduled flights to Botswana fell through and I was very impressed tat Kwando agreed to let guests affected by the flight ban to re-book at not extra cost.

Thankfully we made our Botswana leg, but Anna really showed just how good Expert Africa are in a crisis and that is exactly what you want from an agent. Well done EA we will definitely choose you again!
