"Kenya May 2022"

I visited Kenya between 29 May 2022 and 15 Jun 2022
"Another well organized trip by Expert Africa, initiated by Olivia and completed by Lyndsey. Communication was always swift and to the point via email.

We visited the Samburu region, Amboseli and the Maasai Mara, giving us a caleidoscopical overview of Kenya. Initially a bit weary of possible crowds and an all too touristy experience we were pleasantly surprised how well this combination of areas and camps worked out. The only mass experience was on our transfer from Amboseli to the Mara via Nairobi-Wilson. In hindsight we would have preferred a direct flight on Mombassa Air Safari or possibly a charter; we were totally spoiled by the lovely direct charter flight from Sarara to Tortilis Camp…😉" Read full review: 17 nights in Africa; 14 on a Kenya safari

"Kenya, January-February 2022"

I visited Kenya between 15 Jan 2022 and 2 Feb 2022
"Logistics for travel in Africa can always present their challenges, but when coupled with rapidly changing conditions and regulations in the wake of a pandemic, using a seasoned travel professional to help you piece all the parts of your trip together has never been more critical.

Richard Trillo was extremely responsive to all of our concerns (not to mention more than one panic attack following another sleepless night over whether we’d even be able to take this trip). With the experience and steady guiding hand of Expert Africa, our trip to Kenya, at a time when concerns about COVID continued into a third year, proceeded close to seamlessly. And once in the bush, there were even times when we felt almost a return to a sense of normality.

Thank you for helping us with a vacation that we needed even more desperately than I had imagined.

"My Jan 2022 trip"

I visited Kenya between 8 Jan 2022 and 24 Jan 2022
"This was our first trip back to Kenya since the start of the COVID lockdown. It was wonderful to return. The Kenyans are taking COVID restrictions more seriously than in the UK and it all felt extremely safe.

If you've never been to Kenya before, you must go. You will not be disappointed. We have travelled to Kenya many times and have always had great experiences. We book our next trip there as soon as we get back.

"Kenya Safari January 2022"

I visited Kenya between 2 Jan 2022 and 18 Jan 2022
"In summary: it was a unique and wonderful trip to Kenya with incredible sightings - one of the very best we've ever had in Africa (and we had many of them !!!)

Of course we had doubts if it was a good idea to travel to Kenya in Corona times but we can say that (only and explicitly just for us!) it was definitely the right decision to travel. Kenya has a relatively low covid incidence (especially in comparison to our country), all staff members of lodges/camps were full vaccinated and wearing masks, using and offering sanitizers when and wherever needed and (most important!) we stayed by far the most time in remote areas and outside of buildings in fresh air.
Because of Covid the lodges and camps had lot of cancellations. Thereby there were only a few guests wherever we stayed - sometimes we were the only ones. Except of our last stay (Amboseli) we always had our "private" game drive vehicle - just the driver guide and the two of us !!!

Although living in Germany we've chosen again Expert Africa as our travel agent because we've had already great experience with them and different team members in planning and organising safaris to different African countries. All team members we were dealing with had great knowledge about the country, lodges, wildlife,... they were responsible for and were so friendly and helpful!

This time Jessica Plumb was our agent and we can't say enough "thank you" to her and all her efforts and patience with all our requests and questions. Even after finishing the booking she was always taking care of us especially in behalf of the always changing rules for Kenya immigration.

As expected the organisation of our trip was perfect, everything worked without any problems, we missed nothing!!

We will came back to Africa - and of course again with the experts of Expert Africa !!!!

Although it sounds like advertising: No - everything is perfect !!!

I loved the old website very much but after a short while I got used to the new one and especially the new wildlife count was very helpful for me in behalf of my expectations!!" Read full review: 16 nights in Africa; 16 on a Kenya safari

"Fantastic safari to Kenya!"

I visited Kenya between 13 Nov 2021 and 29 Nov 2021
"What a really wonderful trip! After waiting almost two years to travel internationally because of the pandemic, it was so fantastic to be away on safari again.

Aside from a few extra bits of paperwork to organise before flying, everything on the ground felt very 'normal'. The camps felt very safe and were mindful of covid protocols (all staff were double vaccinated), without detracting from the experience. If anything, being outside in the fresh air all day is probably safer than being in a UK city anyway! It was also clear that all of the camps were so happy to be welcoming guests again.

A big thank you to Expert Africa for all of their help organising such a memorable trip." Read full review: 16 nights in Africa; 15 on a Kenya safari

"Meru and Amboseli"

I visited Kenya between 30 Sep 2021 and 13 Oct 2021
"It was simply wonderful to be back in Africa. If you're even slightly thinking about making a trip, take the plunge if you can. Everywhere felt safe (more so than at home) with the coronavirus being treated very seriously and the camps were clearly delighted to be back in operation.

Everyone was beyond welcoming and emphatic that we tell friends and family that Kenya is open for business and welcoming travellers.


At a personal level we were aching to return to the bush having had to reschedule this trip three times. We had been in Ethiopia and Kenya (the Mara conservancies) in February and early March 2020 and got home just as the world went into lockdown and it was a privilege and pleasure to finally return.

There was some additional hassle with paperwork, testing et cetera but once on the ground it felt almost like old times and was totally worth the effort. And in Meru we barely saw another visitor during our stay. Just awesome.

Planning was inevitably very last minute due to travel uncertainty and changing entry requirements but Richard was very patient and did a great job. The entire trip went like clockwork and we couldn't be happier with the arrangements made for us. We have already made plans for another trip in early 2021.

Last minute trips are great :-)" Read full review: 13 nights in Africa; 9 on a Kenya safari
