"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

"Trip of a lifetime"

I visited Rwanda and 1 other country between 11 Jul 2015 and 21 Jul 2015
"Thank you to Expert Africa for helping arrange an adventure and trip of a lifetime.

While we planned our trip a bit last minute, Richard Trillo made it happen and ensured that we had a completely customized and flawlessly organized adventure. He listened to our goals, took our input and modified the itinerary a few times to make sure it ended up being a perfect experience. And perfect it was.

This trip was a gift to my wife for a big birthday. Nothing could express our shared sentiment better than her referring to it as "the best trip I have ever had."" Read full review: 10 nights in Africa; 5 on a Rwanda safari

"My Jan 2015 trip"

I visited Tanzania and 1 other country between 10 Jan 2015 and 25 Jan 2015
"Our trip as a whole was superb, with some unbelievably fantastic animal sightings ! We saw all the things we had hoped to see, such as the jackals killing the baby impala, the tree lions and elephant encounter, the vast numbers of wildebeest plus much, much more. We had some stunning sightings of birds, e.g. a Kori Bustard displaying.

Another bonus was the glorious view of Kilimanjaro at Tortilis Camp.

All the places we visited offered something different making our trip interesting and unpredictable as regards the animals.
We also met some wonderful people at each of the Camps/Lodges and our guides were superb and extremely knowledgeable.

Our trip was superb, fulfilled everything we had wanted and has given us some fantastic memories with over a 1000 photos. This was undeniably a trip of a lifetime !" Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 7 on a Tanzania safari

"Big Adventure"

I visited Kenya between 6 Sep 2014 and 12 Sep 2014
"Excellent. It was an intense experience that really did exceed our expectations; it was just like the documentaries and films that you have seen over the years. We saw everything we hoped to... and animals and birds that we never knew existed.

I'd like to mention our transfer driver, John, who looked after us between the 2 Nairobi airports. He took great pride in looking after us at all times as we asked to be taken on quite a few detours and his friendly attitude and "mother hen" nature really put us at our ease in what for us was a very different environment from anything we'd experienced before.

For the entire holiday it was strange, but good, to be able to mentally sit back and be completely managed by others, leaving us to enjoy the moment without having to worry about how to achieve the next steps." Read full review: 6 nights in Africa; 4 on a Kenya safari
