Loved the contrast between the three camps in terms of terrain, wildlife and very impressed with conservation initiatives. We could watch the animals while respecting their natural environment.

"My Oct 2022 trip"

I visited Kenya between 19 Oct 2022 and 30 Oct 2022
"It was a dream trip, superbly organised and flawlessly executed.

We couldn't be more thankful with the way Jessica dealt with various changes in our schedules, through the pandemic, and afterwards.
She was patient, kind, and always at hand to reply to queries. This trip was what it was because of all her attention to detail.

We must also mention George of Southern Safaris, who was incredibly helpful on our last day in Nairobi, driving us around the city and waiting while we had a late dinner since our flight was at midnight, insisting all the while that we not hurry and instead enjoy his city."

"My Sep 2022 trip"

I visited Kenya and 1 other country between 27 Sep 2022 and 16 Oct 2022
"Memorable in so many respects.

Quite often, we were the only people seeing the animals, and it felt incredibly intimate. So close. We could almost touch them.

Both drivers were excellent, enabling us to position ourselves and find the animals approaching us.

Every moment was an adventure.

Weird, how strangely comforting it was to have lions, rather than buffaloes roaming the Mara camp.

Fantastic to see so many babies in the flourishing conservancies.

We met other people, including a charming couple of American twins Paula and Sue who shared our view, that we were fortunate to have found you on the Internet." Read full review: 19 nights in Africa; 11 on a Kenya safari

"Kenya Safari October 2022"

I visited Kenya between 21 Sep 2022 and 1 Oct 2022
"We had high expectations for our trip and in every way they were surpassed.

We originally booked our trip for autumn 2020 for our 10th wedding anniversary and due to Covid it was postponed two years but it was totally worth the wait.

Expert Africa (Lyndsey) managed us for two years in the most professional, friendly and patient manner. We told Lyndsey what we wanted and she delivered completely in all aspects and we will be forever grateful to her.

This was intended to be a life changing experience. it was, and we will return for more safari in the future." Read full review: 10 nights in Africa; 7 on a Kenya safari

"Classic safari in the Masai Mara"

I visited Kenya between 14 Sep 2022 and 23 Sep 2022
"Overall an excellent trip that met - and sometimes exceeded - all our expectations even though they were quite high in the first place!

Although we had used Expert Africa a few times this was our first trip out of southern Africa. As ever, the organisation was flawless and Jessica's advice when planning was accurate and very helpful.

We particularly appreciate the way Expert Africa encourage (and make it easy) to contact them by phone to discuss what you are looking for in (patient) detail with someone who has personal experience of the are and lodges - yes their website is really excellent and the perfect starting point but nothing beats talking to someone who's been there and who can engage with your own individual preferences and expectations."
