"Amazing honeymoon in Africa"

I visited Tanzania and 2 other countries between 7 Feb 2020 and 24 Feb 2020
"Maruska was very open to plan an itinerary based on our requests and interests, and also flexible when we had to adjust our budget. Maruska has really been excellent, responsive, informative, and able to really organise exactly what we wanted. Excellent service and we highly recommend Maruska."

"Another wonderful African experience"

I visited Zimbabwe between 4 Feb 2020 and 25 Feb 2020
"Another wonderful welcome from the people of South Africa and Victoria Falls Zimbabwe. Visiting the township of Chinatimba Victoria Falls on the Sunday at the Anglican Church of the Resurrection where the welcome I received was unforgettable a treasured memory. Thank you to Old Drift Lodge for making this and many other memorable experiences possible and for the incredible care given to me during my stay - you are all very special people. In my view absolutely the ONLY place to stay at Victoria Falls.

Thank you Lucy for going the extra mile to ensure that I fitted in all the things I wanted to do in the right order all of which made for another great trip to South Africa and Victoria Falls and wasn't I lucky that you managed to organise it for the dates I requested because otherwise I wouldn't have got to go again this year!"

"My Feb 2020 trip"

I visited Tanzania between 3 Feb 2020 and 12 Feb 2020
"This trip was a joy from start to finish.
Thanks you Expert Africa and Asilia for a truly outstanding service.

While we are very much in tune with Asilia's values and the consistently excellent services they deliver we do hope the trend to build only high-end luxury camps is not at the expense of places like Ubuntu and Kwihala . It is not only the cost factor of these places ,which is increasingly out of our reach ,but the departure from the real wilderness bush experience which we crave."

"My February 2020 trip"

I visited Kenya between 1 Feb 2020 and 10 Feb 2020
"We had a marvellous time notwithstanding the generally extremely squelchy conditions.

A couple of our drives were impacted by some quite heavy rain but we were never not able to go out, and overall we felt - in large part thanks to our very determined guides - that our sightings were probably pretty much what we might have hoped for had the weather conformed more to the norm for the time of year.

In addition, we absolutely loved both camps, which really hit the mark for us in terms of their combination of comfort without over-the-top luxury, fantastic guiding, and excellent (but not excessively busy) locations. Many thanks to Richard (initially) and Olivia for recommending them to us." Read full review: 9 nights in Africa; 7 on a Kenya safari

"A Great Green Season Safari"

I visited Tanzania between 1 Feb 2020 and 15 Feb 2020
"Despite some tricky conditions everything worked very well, and we had a diverse and very enjoyable trip. We´vee been very happy with the services of Expert Africa and will gladly book with them again.

Tanzania had an unusually wet season. We did have quite some rain and some very dull lighting conditions but the sun came out often enough to keep us happy. Some areas in Selous and Ruaha were inaccessible but that was no issue for us, we covered a lot of ground, doing mostly full day outings.

We loved the lush green environments, it was nice to see happy animals enjoying the abundance of food. Predators were a bit scarce, and the high grass a problem for visibility sometimes but we had expected that. Birding was really good, we recorded almost 300 species and photographed about 250. Udzungwa was a really cool place to be, loved the hiking there. Snorkeling in Mafia was a revelation - like swimming in an aquarium, really beautiful. We cannot quite join in the chorus of devoted Chole followers though.

No suggestions - really impressed with the quality of service. Thanks again!" Read full review: 14 nights in Africa; 14 on a Tanzania safari

"My Jan 2020 trip"

I visited Tanzania between 29 Jan 2020 and 6 Feb 2020
"Considering the difficulties encountered I would still say that overall the trip was fairly satisfactory.

Everyone did their best to iron out mishaps, rearrange itineraries and adapt to the unpredictable chaos due to the heavy, unending rainfall. Personally I understand that each trip will be different and no matter how much you plan...” life happens.” This trip just happened to be a bit more adventurous than what was planned; but no regrets.

My fellow travellers all report that though the trip was difficult they are completely blown away by the magnificence of Tanzania, her beauty, her glorious animals and her warm kind people. And yes, I’ll be back:)" Read full review: 8 nights in Africa; 8 on a Tanzania safari

"Kenya in a nutshell"

I visited Kenya between 28 Jan 2020 and 5 Feb 2020
"Enjoyed being in two contrasting locations. Amboseli is elephant heaven and I had some wonderful, very close, encounters with ele families and watched a cheetah and her cubs dining on her catch of the day (brilliant guiding by Joseph). After the open plains, Meru was deep bush - so much rain, even the lions had taken to the trees - and different animals to see.

Accommodation in both places was great, especially Elsa's Kopje, with its lovely staff and attention to detail." Read full review: 8 nights in Africa; 7 on a Kenya safari

"My January 2020 safari"

I visited Kenya between 27 Jan 2020 and 18 Feb 2020
"This trip was excellent and Expert Africa were, as usual, superb in handling the arrangements for us. We changed our plans a couple of times but nothing is ever too much trouble for the Expert Africa team and everything went according to plan. We all had a wonderful time and a memorable safari. I can't comment on the brochure as I'm always happy to work from the website and make bespoke arrangements with Expert Africa's superb team - helpful, friendly, thorough and knowledgeable.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:
I can't imagine how anyone could possibly improve on the fantastic service consistently provided by Expert Africa over many years. I already have next year's plans in mind and I know that Expert Africa will make the arrangements with consummate ease and efficiency!" Read full review: 22 nights in Africa; 6 on a Kenya safari
