"Our Sep 2023 trip back to superb Botswana"

I visited Botswana between 6 Sep 2023 and 19 Sep 2023
"Once again our trip, organised by Expert Africa, went extremely smoothly.

One of our bags went on walkabout for 2 days on our way out but it was recovered fairly efficiently by Mack Air/&Beyond and delivered to our first camp (Savute under Canvas). But not a real problem since we always pack some of each others clothes in each bag.

This was our 4th safari in Botswana and our experience was very enjoyable overall. Everything went as planned and on-schedule, and we saw an incredible number of different animals. In fact, we probably had better sightings of Lion, Leopard, Cheetah and Spotted Hyena than on our previous safaris." Read full review: 13 nights in Africa; 12 on a Botswana safari

"My September 2023 trip"

I visited Botswana between 31 Aug 2023 and 13 Sep 2023
"Probably the best safari experience we have had.

We particularly enjoyed the tracking off-road, the stunning game viewing and the very knowledgeable guides and trackers on the 3 concessions we visited. The camps were super, the staff were lovely and the connections by air were seamless.

We got to see our number one priority which was wild dogs and so much more besides. Notable was the number of leopard, elephants, lions and cheetah. Botswana is not the place to see rhino (having been poached heavily in recent years) or crocodiles (of which we saw surprisingly few), but otherwise the game is extensive.

The comparatively high cost of Botswana as a safari destination certainly paid off in terms of a truly memorable trip.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Keep doing what you do.

We found it very useful to be able to look at what sightings had been recorded from various locations, although we have been told some other agencies do not publish this information in case it helps inform poachers. How much truth there is in this, we do not know. But it may be worth looking into what evidence, if any, there is that it poses a risk." Read full review: 13 nights in Africa; 11 on a Botswana safari

"Our amazing Jul 2023 trip"

I visited Botswana between 14 Jul 2023 and 23 Jul 2023
"Our trip was amazing; definitely the trip of a lifetime!

Everything went really smoothly and it was great knowing that Expert Africa had taken care of all the details along the way. We had more information about the camps (since as cell phone service, tipping policies, etc) than a lot of other guests we talked to who had used other travel agents, and it was great going in with so much stuff information.

See our comments for each camp for more details on our fantastic experience!" Read full review: 9 nights in Africa; 8 on a Botswana safari

"My Jun 2023 trip"

I visited Botswana between 12 Jun 2023 and 19 Jun 2023
"Expert Africa provides an excellent service with all the information you need to travel safely while enjoying the adventure of a lifetime.

Maruska Adye Rowe put together an excellent itinerary for us that prioritized the remote wildlife viewing we were hoping for. She was detail oriented and thorough, but also flexible in meeting our requests.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

The guidebook and travel case crafted in South Africa were useful and made us feel appreciated as clients.

Thank you." Read full review: 7 nights in Africa; 7 on a Botswana safari

"My Jun 2023 trip"

I visited Botswana and 1 other country between 6 Jun 2023 and 17 Jun 2023
"The clue's in the title. The expertise of Expert Africa shone through, from the advice of Megan Green, to the knowledge of guides Andrew Harkness, Josiah of Splash and Lagoon's Spenser to the training and commitment of camp staff to the cheerful professionalism of the Mack Air pilots.

Everyone went the extra mile to ensure this was a uniquely memorable experience for a seventy year old who's had his fair share of those in the past.

If you want to feel it's good to be alive give it a go under those enthralling Botswana skies.

One small piece of advice - when the sun's not around it gets very cold. Thermals, hat and gloves are useful supplements to the ubiquitous bush baby hot water bottles and ponchos." Read full review: 11 nights in Africa; 6 on a Botswana safari
