"My Sep 2022 trip"

I visited Kenya between 10 Sep 2022 and 25 Sep 2022
"We worked out while we were away that this was our 25th safari. It was by far our best and Kenya has become our new favourite safari destination.

The people are so welcoming, polite and friendly. The camps were all very well run with excellent food and facilities. The internal flights were well organised and efficient, albeit with lots of stops!

As we do quite a lot of self-guided, self-drive safaris, it was nice to go to camps with an emphasis on photography, so that they would position the vehicle as we would if we were driving and in a few instances, suggest angles that we hadn't thought of."

"My Aug 2022 trip"

I visited Kenya between 22 Aug 2022 and 1 Sep 2022
"Great organisation by you guys. Hotel, transfers and camps all great. Appreciated that conservancies and camp staffing seemed to be ethical and not exploitative.
Bit of a nightmare journey home with KLM but that was nothing to do with you!
The handling of the unavoidable 2 year delay was well done by Expert Africa.
We had great personal treatment - most of the time it was just the 2 of us in the 4x4s - terrific for us, not so great for them. Hope for full recovery of tourism!" Read full review: 10 nights in Africa; 8 on a Kenya safari

"The holiday exceeded our expectations."

I visited Kenya between 13 Aug 2022 and 26 Aug 2022
"The holiday exceeded our expectations. It is a lot of money, but we felt we got good value and wonderful experiences. Everything worked very smoothly, staff could not have been more helpful and clearly post-Covid visitors returning is key. We were a little concerned about the election but it has all gone relatively smoothly. The day in Nairobi was very enjoyable - being a Sunday traffic was not a problem.

The only downer was before we went, we had to spend hours battling with the Covid and visa forms - a bit stressful, but Jessica was very helpful (and patient) with us about this and helped as much as possible.

This is our 3rd holiday with Expert Africa and we would book again, but would prefer to have flights included for future holidays, given possible Covid cancellations and hassles." Read full review: 13 nights in Africa; 13 on a Kenya safari

"All the arrangements went like clockwork"

I visited Kenya between 1 Aug 2022 and 12 Aug 2022
"This was our fourth trip with Expert Africa and our first to Kenya having previously visited Tanzania (Selous and Ruaha). As usual, all the arrangements went like clockwork from the initial enquiry back in 2019 (thanks Covid!) to being dropped off at Nairobi airport for our return home.

We had superb guides, great wildlife and cultural experiences and excellent accommodation. We particularly liked having local Maasi staff running the camps and they were all extremely grateful that we were supporting their Conservancies and Communities. It was definitely worth the wait!

Thank you Jessica!" Read full review: 11 nights in Africa; 10 on a Kenya safari

"A truly memorable holiday."

I visited Kenya between 22 Jul 2022 and 7 Aug 2022
"A truly memorable holiday.

Our teenagers declared it the best holiday we've had and did not complain once about all the early mornings.

The camps, wildlife, people and hotels exceeded our expectations.

Having had to wait for 2 years for this trip it more than lived up to expectations and we feel incredibly lucky to have been.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Nothing - just to say a hug thank you for making this such a superb holiday.

Having everything in place made it so much easier and the choice of camps and Asha hotel suited us perfectly. Thank you." Read full review: 16 nights in Africa; 14 on a Kenya safari

"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.

No, your services are excellent, and we will not hesitate to contact you again for future travel plans to Africa." Read full review: 18 nights in Africa; 17 on a Kenya safari
