"March 2024 - Lewa and Maasai Mara"

I visited Kenya between 13 Mar 2024 and 23 Mar 2024
"We had an exceptional overall experience.

Top notch service from the beginning with Parita helping us every step of the way, to perfect execution from the minute we landed in Nairobi to the minute we left.

We cannot thank Parita and all the travel partners involved in executing such an incredible and exceptional safari adventure!" Read full review: 10 nights in Africa; 7 on a Kenya safari

"My Mar 2024 trip"

I visited Kenya between 11 Mar 2024 and 30 Mar 2024
"once again Claire has hit it out of the park. Her attention to detail is outstanding. The weakest camp for us was Tortillis as it was large and had not a lot of animal life. We loved Kifaru house and want to return. We also did the conservation tour at Lewa which included meeting the dog tracking team--would highly recommend this to any other travellers. There are only 3 days a week on which it is possible to do this but it is well worthwhile. We also liked elephant pepper camp --the sheer volume of animal life there was amazing.

Suggestions to help us improve our tripsor our service Not any I can think of." Read full review: 19 nights in Africa; 16 on a Kenya safari

"Perfect Kicheche camps "

I visited Kenya between 29 Feb 2024 and 10 Mar 2024
"It was our first trip to Kenya , but not our first safari experience.

When I talked with Richard about our past safaris , he immediately suggested we use the Kicheche camps . As expected, the wildlife in Kenya was spectacular but what made us enjoy the trip even more was the simplicity although very comfortable accommodation in the two Kicheche camps .

We don’t need fancy chandeliers or swimming pools on a safari . We go there for the wildlife , and Kicheche delivered with intense days ( early starts) , bush breakfasts , delicious food , friendly staff, and stellar guides. Exactly what we were looking for!

I also want to mention the help that Parita gave us when she took over from Richard . She is very efficient and organized, and took care of our request for the fly camp later when we inquired about it." Read full review: 10 nights in Africa; 8 on a Kenya safari

"My Feb 2024 trip to Lewa and Naboisho"

I visited Kenya between 27 Feb 2024 and 4 Mar 2024
"Overall very pleased with responsiveness and organizational details.

It was great getting the travel documents and Rough Guide Kenya book well in advance of my departure date.

Our safari went smoothly and there were no issues whatsoever.

This was our 1st safari and our expectations were exceeded.

Richard Trillo's advice was spot on and working with Parita was delightful. Thank you" Read full review: 6 nights in Africa; 6 on a Kenya safari

"My Feb 2024 trip"

I visited Kenya between 15 Feb 2024 and 29 Feb 2024
"Overall this was a disappointing trip, partly made up for by the excellent last camp.

I did not enjoy the two middle camps, and apart from the last camp the volume of plains and other game was sparse. We have been to many countries in the area through your company, and others. We have also been to Mara and other Kenya areas many years ago.

This was not our best trip with you." Read full review: 14 nights in Africa; 13 on a Kenya safari

"My Feb 2024 trip"

I visited Kenya between 12 Feb 2024 and 24 Feb 2024
"Our first visit to Kenya and we were not disappointed at all.

We couldn't fault any aspects of our trip, the service, or our overall experience.

Not having spotted a leopard, we have every incentive to come back!

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

No. Having used other agents in Africa, we rated Expert Africa the best we have used." Read full review: 12 nights in Africa; 11 on a Kenya safari

"My Feb 2024 trip to Kenya "

I visited Kenya between 6 Feb 2024 and 20 Feb 2024
"It was a great mix of different parks and conservancies.

We had plenty of time at each camp to see the best of the local wildlife.

The final stop at Emakoko was worth every penny." Read full review: 14 nights in Africa; 13 on a Kenya safari

"My Jan 2024 trip"

I visited Kenya between 28 Jan 2024 and 11 Feb 2024
"The trip was seamless and was a memory of a lifetime. I can definitely see myself going on another safari in the future! Parita was always easy to get a hold of, and she dealt with my millions of questions and itinerary changes gracefully! I would definitely use expert Africa again in the future!"

"My Jan 2024 trip"

I visited Kenya between 25 Jan 2024 and 5 Feb 2024
"It had taken us a very long time to go on Safari, but this holiday was a true life experience. We hoped we would enjoy the holiday but it significantly exceeded our expectations. The accommodation was excellent, the Safari drives were superb, you do have to have a little luck with what you see, but our Guides were so knowledgeable and the fact that we went to smaller camps meant the area was less crowded and only rarely did we see any other cars. The food well exceeded expectations.
Having no idea what the practicalities would be, we asked Jessica loads of questions and she was very patient and helpful.

As we collected our thoughts on the return journey home, we both agreed that this was one of our best holiday experiences, we could not have asked for more!" Read full review: 11 nights in Africa; 11 on a Kenya safari

"My Jan 2024 trip"

I visited Kenya between 23 Jan 2024 and 5 Feb 2024
"We had a lovely holiday and, as has happened twice before, we’ve come back wanting to go again!!!

Everybody we met in Africa was welcoming and helpful and all the camps we stayed in were delightful. Our tents were luxurious and the grounds well-maintained and pretty.

We had excellent wildlife sightings overall, even if those in the Mara National Park were a little disappointing, and we eventually had our fill of big cats!

Our visits to the Elephant Orphanage and the Giraffe Centre were a pleasant way of beginning and ending our holiday.

Richard couldn’t have been more helpful during the booking process and with our visa applications and everything run like clockwork once we arrived." Read full review: 13 nights in Africa; 12 on a Kenya safari
