"My Aug 2022 trip"

I visited Tanzania and 1 other country between 29 Aug 2022 and 13 Sep 2022
"The trip was fantastic- Expert Africa made it effortless for us! Jessica Plumb (contact at Expert Africa) was very knowledgeable and tailored the trip to our interests/budget. She was very responsive, answering all our questions and providing us with a detailed itinerary.

The safari lodges and accommodation were true to the description given by Expert Africa, and were consistently of high quality.

It was great to be able to enjoy the trip without having to think about internal flights and airport transfers, all of which was taken care of by Expert Africa.

Overall we had an incredible experience on our honeymoon and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Expert Africa!" Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 8 on a Tanzania safari

"My Aug 2022 trip"

I visited Namibia between 27 Aug 2022 and 13 Sep 2022
"The trip was excellent - great wildlife, great landscapes, and great places to stay.

May be worth Expert Africa warning people just how bad some of the roads can be (the Welwitschia Drive in places was a trial, and going the optimum speed on the endless ridged sections doesn't always help, especially if you want to stop the vehicle and look at something with the binoculars). However, that's all part of the fun.

Everything worked out as planned, and it was so good I didn't even mind changing a flat tyre on my birthday before we walked out to the other-worldly experience of Dead Vlei. Most of the people we dealt with at the various camps, restaurants etc were native Namibians, and almost to a woman (and some men) they were friendly and helpful and welcoming.

The navigation was also very easy and its nice to have roads with such little traffic. This will stand out as one of our favourite trips of all time. We hope to return.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:
Not really. This trip was the upper end of our affordability, but there's not much one can do about that unless we camped and cooked our own food, and then we would have had less time for the wildlife and would not have experienced some of the excellent chalets etc.

Namibia does seem to offer something special in sub-Saharan Africa in terms of the ease of a self-drive experience and quality of places to stay - and you undoubtedly know the country well enough to pick some of the most characterful places. Maybe make sure Europcar don't give out duff contact numbers to clients!

Other than that, thanks Tracy for all the ground organisation, and also thanks Mr McIntyre for the excellent Bradt guide, which was a constant companion." Read full review: 17 nights in Africa; 15 on a Namibia trip

"My Aug 2022 trip"

I visited South Africa and 1 other country between 25 Aug 2022 and 18 Sep 2022
"All well planned, helpful preparation discussions with Sabina.

Only minor detail that went wrong was advice to shop in Keetmanhoop before entering South Africa through the Mata Mata gate only to have nearly all our food and firewood confiscated by SA Customs." Read full review: 24 nights in Africa; 10 on a South Africa trip

"My Aug 2022 trip"

I visited Botswana and 1 other country between 24 Aug 2022 and 13 Sep 2022
"We have been fortunate to travel the world, and this trip is on our very short list of the best ever - top 5 for sure!

Expert Africa could not have been more accommodating as our plans changed several times over the course of a couple of years due to Covid and other changes in people's lives. Tracy was very patient and understanding and we loved working with her. She is a gem!

I would highly recommend Tracy and Expert Africa!

"My Aug 2022 trip"

I visited Kenya between 22 Aug 2022 and 1 Sep 2022
"Great organisation by you guys. Hotel, transfers and camps all great. Appreciated that conservancies and camp staffing seemed to be ethical and not exploitative.
Bit of a nightmare journey home with KLM but that was nothing to do with you!
The handling of the unavoidable 2 year delay was well done by Expert Africa.
We had great personal treatment - most of the time it was just the 2 of us in the 4x4s - terrific for us, not so great for them. Hope for full recovery of tourism!" Read full review: 10 nights in Africa; 8 on a Kenya safari

"My Aug 2022 trip"

I visited Tanzania between 20 Aug 2022 and 5 Sep 2022
"Fantastic.

The trip was put together over a series of calls and discussions, met all our criteria and was a great success.

We had one slight hitch with charges for a walking and night safari which Lyndsey sorted immediately, the wonders of e mail.

Maybe make it clear that you will be guided through the many flight changes by Coastal, it was a bit daunting but they made it easy" Read full review: 16 nights in Africa; 15 on a Tanzania safari

"My Aug 2022 trip"

I visited Rwanda between 17 Aug 2022 and 25 Aug 2022
"Our guide Tito was exceptional. He made our trip magical. He was informative and flexible. He knew many of the local guides and got us on the best treks!

He changed the canoeing day and took us to the Fosse research center. One afternoon when we had extra time he took us to a cultural village.

This trip was delayed 2 years due to Covid and Jessica was helpful in rescheduling and adapting to our needed changes. It is difficult for us US folks to contact our team member due to the time difference." Read full review: 8 nights in Africa; 6 on a Rwanda safari

"Our Aug 2022 trip to Namibia"

I visited Namibia between 17 Aug 2022 and 7 Sep 2022
"An amazing trip that we enjoyed from start to finish. It had the perfect balance that enabled us to experience many different aspects of this fascinating and diverse country.

Although driving distances were long, the fabulous scenery with everlasting landscape (and animals) you see along the way certainly make up for this.

Our only regret was we should have stayed longer!

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Certainly can't think of anything at this time. Our 2nd trip with Expert Africa and we are sure there will be many more in the near future!" Read full review: 21 nights in Africa; 21 on a Namibia trip
