"My Apr 2022 trip"

I visited Botswana between 26 Apr 2022 and 9 May 2022
"This was our second trip to Botswana with Expert Africa.

Despite our initial nervousness about this trip post- COVID, everything went extremely well. The advice and support provided by Tracy Lederer was invaluable in setting up our excellent itinerary. Whilst we knew that April/May are not the best times to see wildlife in Botswana, we were nevertheless able to see a wide variety of wildlife and birds during our trip, largely thanks to excellent guiding.

King’s Pool was a fantastic place to start as one would expect from a Wilderness Safaris camp. Kwara Camp was an excellent choice with a real focus on wildlife - we were very impressed with Kwando Safaris. Camp Kalahari was a very different and interesting place to finish - we had a wonderful experience there and would highly recommend it.

Overall the trip was amazing - it may have cost a lot of money but we will always treasure the experience.

"My Apr 2022 trip"

I visited Botswana and 1 other country between 7 Apr 2022 and 17 Apr 2022
"After a traumatic year, this was an extremely welcome holiday.

The friendly and informative service from Tracy was fantastic. All aspects of the organisation from Expert Africa was as usual brilliant.

We were a family ageing from 70 to 9 and we all loved Andrew and his mobile Safari staff. We were sad to leave him.

Thank you Tracy for arranging such a super trip" Read full review: 10 nights in Africa; 6 on a Botswana safari

"My Mar 2022 trip"

I visited Namibia and 1 other country between 31 Mar 2022 and 22 Apr 2022
"We really enjoyed our Namibian self drive trip, lovely variety of lodges, experiences, scenery . Driving the Caprivi Strip had always been on our wish list . Its very different to other parts of Namibia and we would really recommend it.

Sabina advised us at all points and made the trip work so well. Leaving the hire car in Katima Mulilo rather than taking it across the border into Botswana was such a good suggestion . We were met by a driver and driven across border to Kasane.

Our three nights at Selinda Explorer Camp on the eastern edge of the Delta were magical. It was a fitting end to a fantastic three weeks. We nipped into Zimbabwe to seeThe Victoria Falls which were in full flood so looking and sounding magnificent.

Because we trust Expert Africa and wouldn't book with anyone else I can't really say if its good value for money. Same with the other questions really - I'm not comparing them with anyone else.

We will be back in touch soon to book another trip ." Read full review: 22 nights in Africa; 15 on a Namibia trip

"My April 2022 trip"

I visited Botswana and 1 other country between 27 Mar 2022 and 17 Apr 2022
"Because of Covid, the trip had to be rescheduled twice and this was done very willingly and very efficiently. The advice given about choosing the itinerary was superb and comprehensive. The recommendations for Sandibe Safari Lodge and Thorntree River Lodge were inspired for our purposes.

The particular selection of the five lodges gave us the breath and variety we sought having been to Africa four times previously. We were most appreciative for the advice and assurance we were given concerning Covid and the attending requirements. All transfers were made seamlessly with any assistance required.

This trip was the best yet.

Of course the animals are always there for you to find them, but the quality and variety of the lodges has risen considerably over the years and the local wine and food offerings have improved immensely. Good guiding is almost a given and the natural friendliness, charm and grace of the local people are such a plus to any safari.

Expert Africa's knowledge, experience, efficiency and reliability in making arrangements and accommodating your interests makes a great experience all the more remarkable. We owe a great big thank you to Lucy!" Read full review: 21 nights in Africa; 9 on a Botswana safari

"Our clever Botswana Holiday 2022"

I visited Botswana and 1 other country between 23 Mar 2022 and 7 Apr 2022
"Our holiday is best summed up by a travel rep we met on Safari who looked at out itinerary and commented that it "was very clever indeed".

It yielded most of what Botswana can offer on the wild life front in varied locations each with their own characteristics of flora, faurna and animals in some of the best lodges that Botswana offers. We were a very lucky couple and many thanks to Expert Africa.

"My Mar 2022 trip, 2 camps,1 Kalahari mobile safari"

I visited Botswana between 23 Mar 2022 and 7 Apr 2022
"We have to send a HUGE thank you to Tracy Lederer for her incredible work on putting this trip together and gently guiding us to find the courage to step out of our lockdown comfort zones to finally go to Botswana! All her recommendations were fabulous and all 8 of us had a really amazing time.

Tracy's input goes way beyond anything we could hope to expect, and her tireless enthusiasm and friendliness pays off big time. She is immensely knowledgable about every camp and quite a magician when it comes to satisfying everyone's hopes and desires for the trip.

Thanks Tracy and thank you Expert Africa. We've travelled with you 3 times now and are already looking forward to planning our fourth!" Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 13 on a Botswana safari

"My Mar 2022 trip"

I visited Botswana between 19 Mar 2022 and 29 Mar 2022
"Exceptional. It was our 5th time in Botswana, but our first visit in March.

It is a beautiful time of the year for those who do not arrive with a shopping list of what they expect to see. It’s a very rewarding season for those who simply enjoy what mother nature has to provide to them while being on safari as well as those that love Botswana’s incredible beauty."
