"Trip of a lifetime"

I visited Kenya and 4 other countries between 24 Jun 2019 and 7 Aug 2019
"We have been to Africa before with Expert Africa and we knew what we wanted to see this time.

We then spent a long time with Richard Trillo and his team discussing options and then left it to him to put together an extended trip to hopefully tick all the boxes on our wish list.

ALL BOXES TICKED, this was a fantastic journey through 5 African countries, we have seen and experienced so much, so a VERY BIG THANK YOU to Expert Africa for arranging this for us.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

No, just carry on doing what you're doing now - it would be very hard to improve what you're already doing so well." Read full review: 44 nights in Africa; 17 on a Kenya safari

"Wonderful... Beats UK in February!"

I visited Kenya between 26 Feb 2019 and 12 Mar 2019
"Kenya was fabulous. Highspots were Sarara Camp in general (a whole list of things), the fab Villa at Saruna Mara ( terrific staff); Peponi (just being there...). And hotel One Forty Eight in Nairobi was a superb place to arrive at after a long flight...

We were especially impressed by the cheerful helpfulness of all the Kenyan people we met, in all the places we stayed- and in between.

Plus- the weather was perfect...." Read full review: 14 nights in Africa; 13 on a Kenya safari

"Another Great Safari"

I visited Kenya between 29 Jan 2019 and 11 Feb 2019
"The whole trip was fantastic. We worked our way East from Nairobi in a comfortable Southern Cross safari vehicle visiting Nairobi NP, Amboseli NP, Tsavo West and Tsavo East NPs and then the Galana Conservancy before a few days R&R at Watamu on the coast.

Everything went smoothly and the ground arrangements were perfect thanks to Southern Cross and their excellent driver Joshua. They also took care of our transfers between Wilson Airport and JKIA on our last evening.

Expert Africa set up all the arrangements with their usual efficiency and attention to detail and especial thanks to Richard for tying up all the loose ends and making everything work so seamlessly, as always.

"My Aug 2018 trip"

I visited Kenya between 25 Aug 2018 and 9 Sep 2018
"Thank you for the trip of a lifetime, we will definitely be back.

I would do things differently next time, I think you only need 3 days at the most in each camp and I would have liked a third camp without the beach visit at the end.

Disappointed not to have seen the migration (happened earlier this year). No rhinos and very rare to see cheetah and leopard." Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 14 on a Kenya safari

"My Aug 2018 trip"

I visited Kenya between 21 Aug 2018 and 6 Sep 2018
"We are really happy that we booked with Expert Africa. Richard is very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. I think our first phone call must have been at least an hr long as we discussed every option.

We were really happy with the places he recommend and with the final trip schedule. He gave us good advice about not paying extra to have a freight seat on the planes. We were a little over the max bag weight but we were not asked to pay anything.

We were grateful that he let everywhere know about Sarah's leg injury in advance as it meant all the camps were prepared for us.

We had an amazing holiday and would love to travel with Expert Africa to Kenya again." Read full review: 16 nights in Africa; 15 on a Kenya safari

"Wonderful trip to Samburu & Coast, May 2018"

I visited Kenya between 11 May 2018 and 24 May 2018
"Our holiday was exactly what we wanted, and we had an amazing time.

Expert Africa's staff are hugely knowledgeable, and clearly wanted to understand our needs in order to make all the right recommendations. The whole process felt collaborative, and was like talking to an experienced traveller rather than a traditional travel agent; we never felt under any sales pressure. Staff were responsive and helpful, including during the trip.

We are already thinking about another trip, and have every intention of using Expert Africa again." Read full review: 13 nights in Africa; 12 on a Kenya safari
