"My Aug 2023 trip"

I visited Tanzania between 25 Aug 2023 and 5 Sep 2023
"Brilliant. Superbly organised by Tam our Expert Africa organiser. Tam was great, very helpful from start to finish.

All our ground arrangements were very good, especially being met by a very efficient lady from Swiss port at the airport on arrival and being transferred to our accommodations.

Loved our trip, and want to go back again asap. Asilia guides and camps excellent.

Not that keen on Ngorongoro farmhouse but ok for a stop over.

Thank you Tam for all your hard work in organising our trip so that everything went without a hitch." Read full review: 11 nights in Africa; 10 on a Tanzania safari

"My Aug 2023 trip"

I visited Kenya between 24 Aug 2023 and 2 Sep 2023
"It was fantastic. We really can't fault anything!!

The whole experience from the quality of game viewing, the quality of the camps, staff and guides was better than we could have hoped.

It was also great to know that, typically, smaller camps are used with strong links to the local communities helping them benefit from our holiday.

Jessica was really helpful and planned the perfect trip for us." Read full review: 9 nights in Africa; 8 on a Kenya safari

"My Aug 2023 trip"

I visited South Africa between 20 Aug 2023 and 31 Aug 2023
"Good trip. Although cat sightings were lower than expected, the quality was good two being on our own.

The Park has let go of the roads a bit hence there is more corrugation making it hard work, I raised this also with the Park Manager who blamed speeding and people not deflating their tyres. That is only half the problem, they are saving money by not grading the roads as much and as a consequence 2 wheel drive vehicles get stuck.

It is great to self drive and feed off other people's sightings, this time more so for birds in particular owls, which I had not seen in the Park last time.

Seeing two leopards close up was very special Miera and Mashubu (the fully grown cub) were their names." Read full review: 11 nights in Africa; 9 on a South Africa trip

"Central / Northern Namibia Aug 2023"

I visited Namibia between 19 Aug 2023 and 4 Sep 2023
"A difficult start to the trip due to flight diversion, cancellation and three days stuck in Johannesburg. Airline (travel not booked through Expert Africa) were very poor with little communication and terrible customer service

In contrast, the standard of service from Expert Africa, one-to-one contact, liaison with lodges, and sourcing of alternative tickets to make sure we had a back-up plan to get to Namibia and could commence our holiday as soon as possible was well beyond what is expected. This is found in very few companies, was excellent and should be highly commended. Many thanks to Sabina, Chris and others who got involved over their weekend.

Once we arrived, the trip was excellent.

For travellers going via Frankfurt, it is worth highlighting that it is not an easy airport for short connection times. We had three hours on the way out which was ok but not generous. On the return, flights were changed several times and we were rebooked with 1 hour 40 minutes. Security was a total shambles and despite running or queuing all the way with no stops for anything we were very lucky to make the connection as bags were just about to be taken off. We would think very hard about a connection in Frankfurt in future with less than maybe 3 hours outbound and less than 2 1/2 hours inbound.

We have travelled in southern Africa several times with children since the requirement to carry birth certificates and never had to show them. On this visit, they were required on entry into Namibia. This seemed to be a requirement across all desks as we arrived and several families appeared to be having difficulties. What was actually sought was a document with the parents' name - not shown on a UK birth certificate. This was not a problem for us as the birth certificate was taken by our immigration officer as being what it is, although she clearly was not familiar with it. However, carrying a copy of the certified copy of entry into the register as well might be a good idea for parents.

We were pulled up at a traffic stop and required to show a driving licence. A UK licence in English was not accepted (despite being legal). The officer was determined to issue a ticket. He eventually relented and allowed us to phone his Chief Superintendent - who told us and him that he was wrong. Despite having to let us pass, he remained convinced that he was right and assured us that he would check, stop us again on the return, make us read the Road Traffic Act and issue a ticket then. He happened to be otherwise engaged further down the road later. It might be worth carrying an international licence for such situations and is definitely worth pursuing a resolution with a superior." Read full review: 16 nights in Africa; 16 on a Namibia trip

"Three great safari experiences in Tanzania "

I visited Tanzania between 16 Aug 2023 and 28 Aug 2023
"Lyndsey helped us to put together a great itinerary and the wildlife of Tanzania and people in the Nomad camps delivered a holiday that exceeded our expectations.

The three elements (Tarangire, Ngorongoro and north Serengeti) worked well in terms of travel between national parks, variety of landscapes and mix of wildlife.

The three Nomad camps were of a high standard and the leadership of the camp managers and dedication of staff was apparent at them all. Whilst similar in some ways they each had their unique identity. The only slight disappointment was that meals were taken at individual tables. In previous safaris we have enjoyed chatting to other guests at communal tables or round the boma.

We cannot fault the organisation by Expert Africa and Nomad to ensure all elements of the trip went to plan." Read full review: 12 nights in Africa; 9 on a Tanzania safari
