"Very satisfactory trip"

I visited Botswana between 10 Nov 2007 and 25 Nov 2007
"The trip was fantastic but the return journey rather long. I don't know why but it seemed even better then last time. Maybe it was because we rebelled and refused to get up at 05.00 and just relaxed in the camp.

Thanks again for a great holiday. We will probably book the same camps for next year except Moremi, perfect, but explanation to follow.

Incidentally we met a young English couple at Nxabega who had booked 'a holiday of a lifetime' through Thompsons. All their connections and bookings were up the shoot. We told them who to book through in their next lifetime." Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 13 on a Botswana safari

"Fabulous trip to Namibia, plenty of memories"

I visited Namibia between 9 Nov 2007 and 25 Nov 2007
"Namibia is a wonderful place and we had a very special time, it was great to get some real experienced information from Tracey and to have Chris's guide book. Very relaxing with some wonderful memories of some truly lovely experiences.

Would highly recommend sea kayaking with the seals in Walvis Bay with Jeanne, scenic flight from Swakop, Desert Tour (to find the little 5) in Swakop, Etosha, Huab Lodge, Onguma, Kulala and Soussosvlei." Read full review: 16 nights in Africa; 12 on a Namibia trip

"Thanks Susannah"

I visited Namibia and 2 other countries between 9 Nov 2007 and 4 Dec 2007
"Susannah

We left this trip very much in your hands, and you found a great rhythm to the whole trip. The way that we were introduced to each country, the variety of experiences, the fitting of the camps to our style of travel -- it felt like you knew us intimately, and understood us completely.

We just can't express our joy in taking this trip. There were some parts that could have been better, and other parts that were life experiences. As a 25-day trip to Africa, we couldn't have done it better ourselves, even had we taken a year to plan it.

"African Adventure"

I visited Botswana and 2 other countries between 7 Nov 2007 and 2 Dec 2007
"A thoroughly enjoyable trip wich on the whole was well organised.

The transfers between camps were efficient and well timed with the exception of the transfer from Muchenje to Linyanti. We had to be out of our room by 10am and then wait around until 12.30 to drive for our flight. That left us a little short of time on arrival at Linyanti an earlier flight would have been better."

"A magical first trip to Africa"

I visited Botswana between 6 Nov 2007 and 18 Nov 2007
"The trip was wonderful in most every way. We fell in love with Botswana and its beauty.

Our camps were great; Lucy did a terrific job in helping us come up with a diverse selection of camps, despite our rather late booking. And, she was a great help to my sister and her companion when their US flights delayed their arrival in Africa.

Kudos to Lucy and her other colleagues who helped us out along the way!" Read full review: 12 nights in Africa; 5 on a Botswana safari

"Feedback on trip"

I visited Tanzania and 1 other country between 5 Nov 2007 and 18 Nov 2007
"We are very inexperienced and somewhat timid travellers and were quite nervous about many aspects of visiting Africa. However I was impressed by the detailed information which we received beforehand and any minor concerns we had were addressed by Expert Africa staff.

The trip also went flawlessly, much to our relief.

I noted that other visitors that we met on our travels spoke well of Expert Africa." Read full review: 13 nights in Africa; 7 on a Tanzania safari

"A super experience"

I visited Namibia between 5 Nov 2007 and 22 Nov 2007
"We had a superb trip to Namibia seeing nearly all that we missed on a previous visit. Our eyes were opened to the diversity of the country and we feel privileged to have travelled through the places and met the people that we did.

All the accomodation was good, some moreso than others but in general the level of service was high in all instances.

Value for money could not be bettered.

Distances to be covered were well within our capacity and presented no problems. We found several interesting side roads to take especially the D707 from Sinclair Guest Farm to Aus (recommended by Peter and very picturesque} and the road from Bagatelle to Kalkrand {through the dunes}. Amazingly empty roads made driving a pleasure.

The friendliness of the local people and their helpfulness was evident to see and reassuring when you are travelling in a foreign country.

Only one incident with a female police officer jarred. We were stopped outside Otjirawongo for speeding and were told that a fine would have to be paid of N$100 but that she did not have any receipts so we would have to return to Otavi, an hours drive back.As I was not keen to drive back I elected to pay her without a receipt but only had N$70 in small notes. This she accepted without turning a hair. There was no ticket produced so I can only assume she made a profit! We were later told that the police only tend to operate speed traps within 20 km of towns so why go back to Otavi?

That aside we would like to thank Sabina for all her help and hard work in making our trip the success it was.

The company would certainly get a glowing recommendation from us if we were to be asked" Read full review: 17 nights in Africa; 12 on a Namibia trip
