"wow, wow, and wow"

I visited Botswana between 1 Nov 2019 and 17 Nov 2019
"what an amazing experience. i have been travelling to africa over the past 20 years and this was, by far, the most incredible experience i have had. the accommodation was all exceptional and the travel seamless. everything to make the trip easy was thought of.

the itinerary was exceptional, allowing us to see different aspects of botswana. we wouldn't have missed any of it. each was different with its own charm. the guides were all very professional and knowledgable. we experienced so much in terms of both flora and fauna.

thanks to tracy at expert africa for making everything so easy.

"Great: lovely lodges; perfect arrangements"

I visited Zimbabwe and 1 other country between 1 Nov 2019 and 11 Nov 2019
"The trip as a whole was fantastic - all arrangements worked like clockwork with every single transfer being on time and with friendly smiling staff - our thanks to Expert Africa.

The combination of Victoria Falls, Okavango Delta and Mana Pools was ideal and we saw a huge variety of wildlife and had some amazing experiences. The lodges were great - with Nyamatusi in Mana Pools being the best - so totally luxurious and in a stunning setting.

Thank you all.

"Our November 2019 Safari"

I visited Botswana between 31 Oct 2019 and 9 Nov 2019
"Excellent trip. Only regret is only being able to stay at Muchenje and Chobe Under Canvas for 2 night and not 3. Flights, connecting transport and accommodation all worked perfectly." Read full review: 9 nights in Africa; 7 on a Botswana safari

"My Oct-Nov 2019 trip"

I visited Botswana between 24 Oct 2019 and 7 Nov 2019
"Very satisfactory reflects the feedback I have given on all the places where we stayed.

Botswana was very hot and dry and if I were to go back there, I would choose a different, cooler time of the year.

"Zimbabwe/Botswana Sept/Oct 2019"

I visited Botswana and 1 other country between 25 Sep 2019 and 23 Oct 2019
"Spectacular! Feel hugely privileged to have seen and experienced all that we did during our time in these 2 countries.

Variety is the spice of life and every day on the trip brought some new highlight, be it a particular wildlife sighting or interaction, a scenic location or an activity. The trip has re-kindled our addiction for Africa and has only served to convince us to seek more! We would happily return to any of the locations we visited and on each occasion, when it was time to move on, we wished we could linger on at each place - a sure sign of our appreciation.

We are especially indebted to Tracy Lederer for her knowledgeable guidance and patience during the planning and booking process. We acknowledge that we were not the easiest clients to deal with but only because of the need to "get it right" for these once in a lifetime trips and Tracy was spot on with her recommendations and reassurances. It was obvious that her advice was informed by her personal experiences of the various locations.

Logistically, pretty much everything went without hitch. (Even a trekking pole which was left at Muchenje somehow found its way back to us at Maun airport on the way home - don't know how, but Tracy located it and engineered its reunion!!). Appreciating the remote locations reinforces our admiration for the efficiency of your operation, working with the local teams.

We would fully recommend your services and would have no hesitation in approaching you ourselves for future trips in Africa. Till next time..." Read full review: 28 nights in Africa; 16 on a Botswana safari

"My Sep 2019 trip"

I visited Zambia and 4 other countries between 19 Sep 2019 and 12 Oct 2019
"We were very impressed with the Local Agents everywhere#

We had 11 flights. We travelled to Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Mozambique. We travelled into and out of Jo'Burg in South Africa 3 x times

We had countless Border crossings and 5 pages were completely used up in on new (thankfully) passports----more than 5 pages would have been used up, had the Immigration Staff everywhere, been less considerate and using up pages, rather than constantly stamping new pages!

Every Local Agent arrived early to meet us and took all the hassle out of all the numerous border crossings, particularly on the Chobe River on the boat, where you have to pass through Nambia and Botswana on entering and leaving!

In the end the trip is as good as the Local Agents, and the Local Agents that Expert Africa used were suberb, efficient and charming

Well done Amanda. A wonderful trip, very efficiently organised and with great detail

All of our requests were realised on the day and we thank you for all your very hard work" Read full review: 23 nights in Africa; 8 on a Zambia safari

"Botswana and Namibia Safari September 2019"

I visited Namibia and 2 other countries between 16 Sep 2019 and 6 Oct 2019
"Our trip exceeded our high expectations for bucket list safari experience. Tracy, our coordinator at Expert Africa was easy to work with and tailored the trip to meet our needs. We appreciated that she had first hand knowledge of the camps that added weight to her recommendations.

In retrospect we should have added a couple extra days with no activities planned so that we could recharge our batteries. Ideally this would have been done in Namibia due to the stratospheric high cost of the lodges in Botswana.

Our Day trip to Sandwich Harbour was fantastic, and if we had to choose we would have ranked it higher than a scenic flight over the dunes. We had the best of both worlds as we needed to fly from Hoodia to Swakopmund so the excursion over the dunes was a no brainer addition." Read full review: 20 nights in Africa; 7 on a Namibia trip

"Wonderful trip"

I visited Botswana and 2 other countries between 12 Sep 2019 and 18 Sep 2019
"This trip immediately followed a 2 week safari to Tanzania.

Overall, I think I would have had a less favorable opinion of my trip to Africa if I hadn't gone to Botswana.

What a perfect ending to our trip. Thank you." Read full review: 6 nights in Africa; 3 on a Botswana safari

"Amazing Southern African Safari"

I visited Namibia and 2 other countries between 31 Aug 2019 and 2 Oct 2019
"Overall it was a great trip and very well organized. Despite our booking the trip rather late EA managed to provide us a good mix of accommodation and we can honestly say that only one or two places were below average, most were excellent. Had we booked earlier I'm sure we would have been able to secure more first choice accommodation.

If we are fortunate to plan another trip to Africa in the future, we will definitely consider Expert Africa again, as well as recommend them to others." Read full review: 32 nights in Africa; 22 on a Namibia trip
