"Our Nov 2022 Okavango trip"

I visited Botswana between 14 Nov 2022 and 26 Nov 2022
"Given that we first booked this trip back in 2020, the fact that Expert Africa held our booking with the same three camps for the same period as the original booking was nothing less than exceptional customer service.

We are very grateful to both Expert Africa and the three camps (Duba Explorers, Selinda Explores and Pelo Camp) for putting together a truly memorable experience.

Expert Africa staff have all been very responsive throughout - and anyone thinking of booking a safari in Botswana would be well advised to use their expertise on the country for doing so." Read full review: 12 nights in Africa; 9 on a Botswana safari

"A wondrous safari in Botswana"

I visited Botswana between 9 Nov 2022 and 20 Nov 2022
"We stayed in three very different camps. All three were excellent in different ways and we had numerous memorable game viewing experiences at each of them.

Our itinerary enabled us to transfer between the three camps overland so that no safari time was lost in internal flights.

We have been on numerous safaris over the years but consider that this was the best overall experience we have had." Read full review: 11 nights in Africa; 10 on a Botswana safari

"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 10 Oct 2022 and 23 Oct 2022
"This was our fifth trip to Africa arranged by Expert Africa and, just like the previous trips, a big success.

The team members know our preferences and are able to suggest just the right areas and accommodations. The last minute changes we had were a bit of a gamble (probably for everyone) and although an upgrade, looking back not really our kind of camp. The helicopter rides however were a revelation and a fantastic experience.

The camps we spent the most time in (Footsteps and Linyanti Expeditions) we'd revisit in a heartbeat and are among the best places we ever stayed.

Botswana is not a cheap place to visit and our expectations were high, especially considering the fact we had to postpone this trip due to covid. We were never disappointed and, if anything, this trip was again a confirmation that southern Africa is so very beautiful and Expert Africa is the right company to help us enjoy it.

We're back next year." Read full review: 13 nights in Africa; 11 on a Botswana safari

We did really enjoy our holiday but we should have had a beach break at the end, but that was our decision.

"My Oct 2022 trip"

I visited Botswana and 1 other country between 1 Oct 2022 and 16 Oct 2022
"The trip was amazing.

This is our second safari with Expert Africa and we will book again with you when we return.

Our experiences with Kwando Safaris have been outstanding, not only because of the quality of their concessions, but most especially because of their wonderful staff. The guides are fabulous and there is a real sense of teamwork and enjoyment at their lodges." Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 13 on a Botswana 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
