"Kenya in Nov. and Dec."

I visited Kenya between 30 Nov 2019 and 9 Dec 2019
"This was my 14 trip to Africa and my first time with Expert Africa. I do so appreciate the detail that Olivia put into my trip. She did listen to my expectations and desires for the type of safari that I wish to experience. The animal sightings and accommodations were excellent. The guides and camp staff paid attention to details and were very knowledgeable about all aspects of the trip. I appreciate that the camps were involved in community service and took the time to share their knowledge with me during my stay. I also appreciate that the camps were trying to be conscious of not polluting the environment and using solar power throughout camp.

The only suggestion I have is to get rid of the juice boxes and their plastic straws. Juice can be dispensed in glass containers too." Read full review: 9 nights in Africa; 9 on a Kenya safari

"Trip of a lifetime "

I visited Kenya between 29 Nov 2019 and 11 Dec 2019
"Incredible, unforgettable family vacation. If we had known how miraculous a safari trip would be, we would have found a way to scrape the money together decades ago.

My eleven year old daughter and my parents in their seventies were equally delighted and astonished. We visited Kenya during the short rains in early December and felt it was a perfect time of year to go. Incredible wildlife!!!!!" Read full review: 12 nights in Africa; 12 on a Kenya safari

"Nancie Wight tour"

I visited Kenya between 31 Oct 2019 and 14 Nov 2019
"This was an amazing adventure for our family and we are grateful to Richard Trillo for his efficient and thoughtful planning of our trip.

Nancie Wight was our guide on the ground and she is wonderful! From her expert photographic advice to her warm, welcoming (and fun!) manner, we could not ask for a better host!

We are already thinking about our return in 2021!

"Great Experience"

I visited Kenya between 25 Oct 2019 and 2 Nov 2019
"Expert Africa provided us with a wonderful and very comprehensive wildlife experience in a short, one week safari.

We stayed in a luxury traditional lodge, as well as a small, bush tent camp. Between the two experiences we saw all the big five, and many more animals as well. We saw the endangered rhinos and Grevey zebras, as well as a pair of leopards matting, cheetah cubs, and the wildebeests on their endless marches.

I don't think much more could have been packed into one week." Read full review: 8 nights in Africa; 8 on a Kenya safari

"Our October 2019 trip"

I visited Kenya between 17 Oct 2019 and 27 Oct 2019
"We have been travelling to Africa for over 12 years and this was our first trip to Kenya. Our overall experience was good with certain aspects being very good.

The majority of our fellow travellers were safari first timers and combining there holiday with a beach experience either on the coast or the island of Lamu. One of the attractions of a safari experience is meeting people from different parts of the world and sharing experiences and we were not disappointed on this trip."
