"My Jul 2022 trip"

I visited Zimbabwe between 18 Jul 2022 and 2 Aug 2022
"This was an incredible experience most of all a life learning journey for us.

It taught us yet again that as Human Beings we are not separate to Nature but a part of Nature.

Being in the African Bush is always profound but Hwange and the people that work there, we found magical and eye opening as to how we can get lost in the flotsam and Jetsam of life!

Can’t wait to return to Africa !

"My Jul 2022 trip"

I visited Tanzania between 15 Jul 2022 and 30 Jul 2022
"Inspite of all the horror stories of flying and Heathrow this year, the travelling was probably one of the most straight forward journeys to Africa ever. Health travel questionnaires for Tanzania and Kenya are no longer required or requested as long as you have covid vaccine certificate.
The second week which was organised through Expert Africa was a huge success and a two centre holiday in Mafia was a good choice." Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 6 on a Tanzania safari

"Our July 2022 trip to four camps in Botswana"

I visited Botswana between 14 Jul 2022 and 29 Jul 2022
"Maruska was excellent to work with!

The four camps we visited were all very good.

Although our wildlife viewing at Splash was excellent, we would probably not return due to the very rough roads in deep sand.

We developed a preference for small camps (e.g., not more than six tents or units).

We love Botswana and we are grateful for Expert Africa's excellent help in organizing the trip. This was our fourth trip to southern Africa with Expert Africa." Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 10 on a Botswana safari

"Botswana 2022"

I visited Botswana between 12 Jul 2022 and 27 Jul 2022
"The trip was focused on trying to see and photograph Wild Dogs with a Kalahari extension for Meerkats bolted on. Despite a hiccup with our luggage thanks to BA and some issues with dog dens sadly being in conflict with lions, the trip delivered all that we had hoped for and a few surprises. We added 7 lifer sightings to our list which is always great!
The Kalahari was the real surprise in terms of experience and sightings, and certainly encourages us to go back again in green season.
We chose the Kwando camps in and around the Delta based on reputation with Wild Dogs and the ability to off road in private concessions, and two out of the three camps were excellent. It is always high risk to have a pretty single minded goal on a trip but it finally paid off and we got some great other sightings / encounters along the way. Having the trackers on the vehicles was essential as good old fashioned detective work is critical to sightings - the landscape can be pretty challenging at this time of year between green and dry. Our stay at Kwara Camp has set a standard for safari accommodation that will never be beaten!
Overall the trip delivered what we were hoping plus a very special dog encounter." Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 14 on a Botswana safari

"Fantastic Zambia safari trip"

I visited Zambia between 12 Jul 2022 and 24 Jul 2022
"Start to finish the help and support we received from Lucy Copson was excellent.

We made several changes to our original idea, but Lucy was quick to advise and respond on each occasion.

The quality of process, confirmation and despatch of documents was very good.

Fortunately we never needed on the ground support, but with all the information we received, I always felt that EA was there in the background if we needed them.

All round excellent service." Read full review: 12 nights in Africa; 10 on a Zambia safari

"3 weeks in July: city, beach, rural, safari."

I visited Kenya between 11 Jul 2022 and 2 Aug 2022
"A wonderful experience from start to finish. Richard's advice was excellent; he got to know what we would like and found accommodation and travel that suited our needs, soon gaining my confidence. At no point was I frustrated by the process, despite all that covid threw our way and the delay of a year that it caused." Read full review: 22 nights in Africa; 17 on a Kenya safari

"Our Kenyan Adventure! "

I visited Kenya between 11 Jul 2022 and 22 Jul 2022
"We had the most amazing time!

So pleased with our choice of accommodation. Olivia (who moved on to pastures new after our trip was organised) gave thorough advice on safari camps taking into consideration our needs as a family. Thrilled with her recommendation of Kicheche Valley. We were looking at Hemingways at Watamu - a traditional beachside hotel, however wanting to be more adventurous she gently steered us towards Kinondo. So pleased she did.

Jessica became our point of contact. She was just as experienced, helpful and understanding answering questions. When BA cancelled our outbound flight she remained very calm and positive with her fretful client on the other end of the phone! All very much appreciated.

This was a trip to introduce the wonders of Africa to my husband and son. Safari was very much out of my husband’s comfort zone. Giraffe Manor had been on my bucket list for many years and we were celebrating a special wedding anniversary so he succumbed to persuasion.

It has been a life changing experience for him. He absolutely loved the whole experience of being on safari and says he left a little part of him in Kenya!

I’m thrilled that our Kenyan adventure was such a success, so many wonderful memories. We all fell in love with the country and its people.

So, if you’re reading this and thinking we’d like to go on safari but not sure if it’s for us … GO, you’ll have a wonderful time!

"My Jul 2022 trip"

I visited Zambia and 2 other countries between 10 Jul 2022 and 25 Jul 2022
"This trip exceeded expectations. The accommodations and service were stellar. Along with outstanding encounters with wildlife, the guides and support staff at the camps were memorable.
I can’t say enough about Maruska who worked with us since 2019 to make this trip happen.
We cancelled twice due to Covid, and we are so happy she stuck with us to see it through!
Her recommendations for where to go and how long to stay were spot on for this group. She always communicated in a clear and timely manner. Maruska, I’ll miss working with you!
I also want to give a shout out to Claire who was covering for Marusaka and who stepped in when we had to stay over an extra night in Victoria Falls due to my husband’s illness. She was able to change the flights so we could get to Tafika, she somehow seamlessly arranged the ground transportation to the airport in Livingstone, and when we finally arrived late in Mfuwe, there was someone from Tafika waiting to drive us the 2.5 hour ride to camp. And she checked back in to see how my husband was doing, as did Maruska while she was on her vacation!

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service: Expert Africa does a superb job. We hope we can plan a future trip with you folks, specifically, Maruska! Thank you!!!" Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 8 on a Zambia safari

"Jul 2022 trip to Zambia"

I visited Zambia and 2 other countries between 10 Jul 2022 and 25 Jul 2022
"Our trip was orgianally booked in November of 2019 for August of 2020- then the pandemic hit. We briefly considered rebooking for 2021 but ultimately decided on July 2022. Maruska was patient and attentive through all of the contortions of those two years.
Early in our trip one member was ill and had to stay an additional day at our first lodge to recover. Maruska was on leave, but Expert Africa answered an email about the problem within 15 minutes. They were able to figure out rebooking the flights to our next camp as well as making sure that all parties involved knew of the problem and new schedule details.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service: Wonderful service, no suggestions for improvement." Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 8 on a Zambia safari
