"OUR AFRICAN EXPERIENCE"

I visited Kenya and 1 other country between 21 Feb 2016 and 13 Mar 2016
"Inevitably it was a bit of a ‘whistle-stop’ tour as we covered a great deal of ground; however all the travel arrangements were quite excellent and our thanks must go to Richard Trillo of Expert-Africa for his advice and organisation; to Gaig Leshan Safaris for all their help; to Asilia Africa; and not least to Alex Hunter at Ol Pejeta for all his kindness and hospitality.

Without exception the management and staff wherever we stayed were friendly and helpful, the food was excellent, whilst the standard of diver/guides was of the highest order.

All in all this was an outstanding trip in every respect. Thank you." Read full review: 21 nights in Africa; 11 on a Kenya safari

"Half term in Kenya"

I visited Kenya between 13 Feb 2016 and 19 Feb 2016
"An unbelievably fantastic holiday, perfectly possible to do 4 nights safari and a night in Nairobi on arrival without feeling as if your short holiday is rushed. All plans worked like clockwork and my 10 year old loved Naboisho Camp as much as me. Communal dining in the evening worked very well and was like one big dinner party. The school visit was a particular highlight with my daughter having a Swahili lesson with the local school children. The Naboisho Conservancy had the feel of a private safari, with very few other vehicles around. A real treat having had a different experience in the past in the Masai Mara. We spent a day travelling to the Mara which was also wonderful for game viewing. Tim, our driver and guide had an uncanny knack of finding the best game viewing and perfect picnic spots (we had a bush breakfast most days overlooking pods of hippos or giraffe herds). Thank you to everyone who made our holiday so special." Read full review: 6 nights in Africa; 5 on a Kenya safari

"Overall"

I visited Kenya and 1 other country between 30 Jan 2016 and 16 Feb 2016
"Great trip and lifetime memories, the team meeting and transferring us went very smoothly.

We were delayed 2 hours at Bird Island as a tropical storm had delayed the plane at Mahe, but they provided drinks and I preferred to wait at Bird Island than Mahe airport." Read full review: 17 nights in Africa; 7 on a Kenya safari

"My Jan 2016 trip"

I visited Kenya between 10 Jan 2016 and 25 Jan 2016
"We were extremely happy with the organization of our trip by Expert Africa and our TO, Ellie. She would be very prompt in answering any of our questions, and designed our safari as we had wanted. We were supplied all the information that we would require to prepare for our trip.

The camps that we stayed at were all first rate. The guiding was good at all of them and the transfers from the airports and between the camps went flawlessly.

Ellie was able to come close to our budget request by finding us camps with special rates that fit our comfort zone.

We would definitely recommend Expert Africa to anyone wanting to do a safari in Kenya." Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 14 on a Kenya safari

"My Jan 2016 trip"

I visited Kenya between 9 Jan 2016 and 23 Jan 2016
"The whole trip was wonderful. All three camps were excellent, and the three different areas went very well together.

The order we visited the camps (Meru, Ol Pejeta, Olare Motorogi) worked well for flights but also worked very well in terms of wildlife viewing. We were very happy with the balance of time we spent in each area. Everything went very smoothly, guiding was of very high quality in all of the camps. All camps knew that we did not eat meat and we were very well catered for in each of them.

The advice we received from Richard and from Ellie was very good. Both were keen to listen to what we wanted from our trip and both were very knowledgable.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

We are very happy with the service provided (which is why it is the second time we have used you!)" Read full review: 14 nights in Africa; 14 on a Kenya safari
