My January 2015 safari

On this trip, I visited Tanzania between 20-Jan-2015 and 31-Jan-2015 and I travelled alone.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Thoroughly enjoyable and memorable 10 day safari. Everything was great and there was absolutely nothing more I could have wished for.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service

I can't comment on the quotation because I haven't compared with any other. I have always found Expert Africa to be so good at organising my trips that I would not dream of contacting anyone else! I have no doubt that they are good value for such an excellent service and I have recommended them to a number of fellow travellers on safari who seemed less impressed with their agents.

To know that everything will run like clockwork from booking to returning home removes all the hassle from travelling to remote and exciting destinations and leaves us free to enjoy every minute of the experience.

The feedback form seems to cover everything that travellers might wish to raise.

Thanks for the helpful guidance and wonderful service

We had a fantastic holiday. The Freeman safari was amazing and provided brilliant photo opportunities. great camp. Pongwe is a great place to relax after a safari with beautiful beach and gardens. Both establishments had friendly and attentive staff who were keen to maximise our enjoyment of the holiday.
