"My Oct 2022 trip"

I visited Namibia and 2 other countries between 30 Oct 2022 and 13 Nov 2022
"Our trip involved a lot of travelling with complicated logistics and pick-ups/transfers etc and without exception it was all excellent. Extremely well organised.

All flights in small planes were great and lodges in Botswana and Namibia were small, clean, comfortable with extremely friendly staff.

Great 2-weeks! Thanks Expert Africa for organising!" Read full review: 14 nights in Africa; 5 on a Namibia trip

"My Oct 2022 trip"

I visited Botswana between 3 Oct 2022 and 31 Oct 2022
"This was a marvellous trip in every way, first booked nearly two years ago and postponed because of the pandemic.

We were so glad to be back in Southern Africa and on safari in Botswana again. We can't thank Lucy Copson enough for all she did to make it such a success. She was marvellous and it was so good of her to come and meet us at our hotel at Cape Town airport the evening before we set off on the safari.

This was the first time we had used the services of Expert Africa.

We very much hope to use them again and have no hesitation in thoroughly recommending them to others.

"Holiday of a lifetime"

I visited Zambia and 1 other country between 2 Oct 2022 and 14 Oct 2022
"The holiday was perfect in every way. The accommodation chosen was exactly right for our interests and the right level of comfort/ activity. The covid guarantee added a level of reassurance. All the transfers worked perfectly. A bonus was that lodges were nowhere near full, so we nearly always had our own driver/guide.

We were very impressed that everyone had got the message that we were vegetarian, and even more impressed (and thrilled) that every lodge laid on a special diner, sparkling wine or cake as we had mentioned on the form we were celebrating a big wedding anniversary.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

No - it's all great.

We have had several holidays with you and they've all been really good." Read full review: 12 nights in Africa; 7 on a Zambia safari

"My Oct 2022 trip"

I visited Botswana and 1 other country between 1 Oct 2022 and 14 Oct 2022
"The entire safari experience was excellent and we would recommend it to anyone who has an interest. The level of service throughout was superb and the access to animal life across a wide range of species was truly impressive. Each camp where we stayed treated us with great respect and delivered a five-star experience in a very rustic setting. It was extremely relaxing to be offline without access to our modern digital world for an extended period. We loved meeting with the other guests, and had many lovely interactions while dining on superb and varied meals - many of which were locally sourced. Bravo!

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service: One small suggestion regarding your trip planning materials - Americans like checklists rather than text. In future, you may want to consider breaking some of these materials down for ease of access.
In the scheme of things this is a very minor point - since we developed our own checklists using your text!" Read full review: 13 nights in Africa; 7 on a Botswana safari

"Our Namibia Sep 2022 trip"

I visited Namibia and 1 other country between 9 Sep 2022 and 24 Sep 2022
"One of the best trips we have had worldwide, and especially in Southern Africa.

Delightfully quirky Roy's rest camp to simply luxurious Onguma, Nambwa and Chobe Chilwero.

There was only one camp, Shametu River Lodge, that was a real disappointment.

All the connections and pickups worked very well. The meet and greet at Windhoek by your agent was especially welcome after a couple of flights.

Marushka, your representative, couldn't have been more helpful as she listened to our ideas before curating and then amending her suggested itinerary. Constant follow-ups were reassuring.

We cannot see how either you, her or we could have improved our trip with Expert Africa .. sorry.." Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 13 on a Namibia trip

"My Sep 2022 trip"

I visited Botswana between 9 Sep 2022 and 26 Sep 2022
"A superb safari holiday experience.

We chose 4 mutually complementary but contrasting locations in the Okavango, Savuti and Chobe areas with the helpful suggestions from Lucy (our agent) and each camp certainly met our expectations both in terms of the accommodation/ food and the wildlife observations.

We were privileged to witness some exciting game episodes comparable or exceeding what we have previously experienced in eastern and southern Africa. The absolute highlight of the trip was the private mobile camp in Savuti which with Andrew Harkness provided a thrilling and memorable experience.

Once again, Expert Africa has been excellent in providing knowledgeable suggestions for the trip during our planning and efficiently booking our whole safari experience. Many thanks." Read full review: 17 nights in Africa; 13 on a Botswana safari

It really paid off going to a number of different lodges to give us experiences in different environments where the animal life was varied.

"My Sep 2022 trip"

I visited South Africa and 2 other countries between 3 Sep 2022 and 14 Sep 2022
"It was a trip of a lifetime. We throughly enjoyed ourselves and have great memories.

It was a long time coming as we booked pre-Covid and wondered if we would ever get there.

Expert Africa was instrumental in delivering this from the moment we contacted them to the fantastic planning mainly from Megan. She kept us up to date during Covid to when things were eventually opening up. Everything ran smoothly with no problems, especially flights and transfers.

I cannot thank them enough and would definitely recommend.

Unsure how you can improve on excellence." Read full review: 11 nights in Africa; 4 on a South Africa trip
