"My July 2017 Trip"

I visited Kenya between 22 Jul 2017 and 30 Jul 2017
"Overall a really great trip. Porini Camp was not great , but maybe I have been a little spoilt in recent years having stayed at some amazing spots, Elephant Bedroom being one of the best.

As I mentioned I really loved the Samburu area, and would love to go back next year." Read full review: 8 nights in Africa; 8 on a Kenya safari

"Short but sweet"

I visited Kenya between 21 Jun 2017 and 28 Jun 2017
"We were in Kenya principally because of a business visit to Nairobi and decided (as we had in December in the same circumstances) to add on a few days vacation.

As we live in Livingstone getting to Nairobi is very straightforward thanks to Kenya Airways flying Nairobi-Livingstone-Cape Town return three times per week.This is an excellent service, taking in views of arguably the three most iconic pieces of natural scenery on the continent, ie Kilimanjaro, Vic Falls and Table Mountain.

We had no hesitation in working with Expert Africa to arrange the non-work elements of our trip, our 20th with EA since we first ventured with the firm in 2006.

As always, we enjoyed a very helpful dialogue with the EA team, Richard Trillo in this case, working out what we would do. The plan worked perfectly and the trip more than lived up to our expectations." Read full review: 7 nights in Africa; 7 on a Kenya safari

"My 2016 Safari Outing"

I visited Kenya between 10 Sep 2016 and 21 Sep 2016
"It was delightful! Richard Trillo, who helped us organize the safari, did an excellent job. In the first place, he listened carefully to what we had in mind and very tactfully, made suggestions how to maximize our time within the constraints of our budget (no mean accomplishment).

He very wisely suggested three stops to give us reasonable exposure to what Kenya has to offer without wearing us down. Our experiences at El Karama, the Mara Camp and ending at Totilis were just what we had in mind.

Then, he coordinated the timing, the pickups, the flights so very well that we were never at a loss as to what comes next and will the taxi actually be there at (e.g.) 5:30 in the morning. Very well done!

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Simply continue the personal contact!" Read full review: 11 nights in Africa; 10 on a Kenya safari

"Our fourth safari"

I visited Kenya between 5 Sep 2016 and 20 Sep 2016
"Expert Africa has helped us plan all four of our trips to Africa and we couldn't be happier.

The staff there has such intimate knowledge of the camps that they are able to offer us wonderful advice. They know what we value most and have the background to know how to guide us to places that we will enjoy.

This was a trip that took us to some new regions of Kenya and we enjoyed the variety of environments that we experienced. Thank you, Ellie, for helping us plan another amazing adventure!" Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 14 on a Kenya safari
