"Wonderful trip"

I visited Botswana between 8 Apr 2009 and 17 Apr 2009
"We were delighted with our trip.

All went smoothly - Botswana exceeded our expectations and everywhere we felt looked after and taken care of.

Having spent a considerable sum of money, we hoped that we'd feel it was worth it, and it certainly was in terms of uniqueness of experience and sheer enjoyment.

We felt well prepared for our trip and all went to plan - I like the fact you send a complimentary copy of Chris's book and also the Notes to Travellers are really good.

Thank you for a great holiday." Read full review: 9 nights in Africa; 7 on a Botswana safari

"Travelling with Expert Africa"

I visited Botswana between 27 Aug 2008 and 8 Sep 2008
"We are very pleased that we chose to travel with Expert Africa .....

From the outset Maruska Adye was very positive, helpful and patient in responding to our thoughts and needs. In the course of our pre-trip planning we changed our ideas from making a longish trip round Namibia, possibly taking in Botswana and/or the Cape Region of South Africa, to making a focussed trip to the Okavango Delta.

We appreciated very much the comments and suggestions made by Maruska which enabled us to rationalise our ideas. Her listening to our inclinations, particularly that we didnʼt wish to do a fly-in safari but to go overland, was as much as anything the reason why we chose to travel with Expert Africa. Face-to-face meetings at her office also gave us confidence in our decisions.

The cost of our trip was relatively high but taking into account that there was only two of us, supported by a safari crew of 4 plus the skill and experience of Grant, and that we really had a very good memorable experience, we think it was good value.

We would like to revisit Botswana and, if this is possible, we would certainly consider travelling with Expert Africa and Okavango Voyagers again." Read full review: 12 nights in Africa; 2 on a Botswana safari

"Mission accomplished"

I visited Botswana between 10 Aug 2008 and 20 Aug 2008
"The mark of a top operator is fitting the right trip to the client. This was achieved perfectly. A difficult spec - a mixed party of 8, including youngsters ages 8, 11, 15 and 17 - most of whom had not been to Africa before. We were tight on high season dates too.

Maruska came up with a trip which really fitted the brief, and scored at least 9 out of 10 from the participants.

Particularly excellent was Santantadibe Mobile Camp in the Okavango Delta - all ages (8-51) loved the genuinely African experience, the fact we had it all to ourselves, and the super hosting/guiding of Grant and Daphe. Well done!" Read full review: 10 nights in Africa; 4 on a Botswana safari

"The hot and the cold"

I visited Botswana and 1 other country between 11 Jun 2008 and 24 Jun 2008
"We had a great time despite the lack of game - we know it can't be guaranteed and if it was easy we wouldn't do it - but we were disappointed by the lack of game at Linyanti - the last time we were in that area it was wonderful. Robin felt that we were in a 'pub with no beer' !

The disappointment however was totally negated by the great time we had with Grant.

Bearing in mind that this whole trip was put together about five weeks before we went - everything ran like clockwork - how unusual for Africa !" Read full review: 13 nights in Africa; 5 on a Botswana safari

I visited Botswana between 5 May 2008 and 18 May 2008
"Whilst we had some wonderful game sightings and stayed in a couple of great camps, I felt that this was the most disappointing trip to Southern Africa (out of 5) that I have had" Read full review: 13 nights in Africa; 13 on a Botswana safari

"This trip met all my goals!"

I visited Namibia and 1 other country between 29 Jul 2007 and 19 Aug 2007
"My goals were to show my grandaughter:

1. conservation efforts in southern Africa,
2.a glimpse of how average people live/work in rural and urban areas,
3. some of the geology and animals of Namibia and Botswana.

All goals met and we had a wonderful time!!!

The only thing that didn't work out was that I did not realize that virtually none of the shops/restaurants in either countrywould accept American Express credit cards. Even at the airports! I had allowed enough cash for gasoline, camp tips and misc but was relying on my AMEX card for the bulk of shopping and meals. This made for a very tight trip, especially at the end in Windhoek where we totally ran out of cash.

Please let people know which credit cards are accepted in these two countries!" Read full review: 21 nights in Africa; 13 on a Namibia trip
