"My Sep 2022 trip"

I visited Kenya between 10 Sep 2022 and 25 Sep 2022
"We worked out while we were away that this was our 25th safari. It was by far our best and Kenya has become our new favourite safari destination.

The people are so welcoming, polite and friendly. The camps were all very well run with excellent food and facilities. The internal flights were well organised and efficient, albeit with lots of stops!

As we do quite a lot of self-guided, self-drive safaris, it was nice to go to camps with an emphasis on photography, so that they would position the vehicle as we would if we were driving and in a few instances, suggest angles that we hadn't thought of."

"A wonderful and memorable trip"

I visited Zanzibar and 2 other countries between 4 Sep 2022 and 17 Sep 2022
"I planned my trip two years ago, then COVID struck and I needed to defer.

I was returning to one camp, Namiri, now a lodge - all other destinations were new. The standard of guiding was excellent and I was thrilled by the number and quality of animal sightings. Spending time on Mnemba Island was a perfect and relaxing interlude before ending in Stone Town. Overall, the experience was remarkable, wonderful.

Some of the airstrip transfers were a tad chaotic, but my luggage and I arrived as planned on each occasion. The meet and greet at Kilimanjaro was great and made for a totally stress free experience.

Thank you Expert Africa, and Lyndsey, in particular." Read full review: 13 nights in Africa; 7 on a Zanzibar holiday

"My Aug 2022 trip"

I visited Tanzania and 2 other countries between 24 Aug 2022 and 12 Sep 2022
"Great trip.

But we should have just stayed in one Northern Serengeti camp as the two were so close. Ideally Sayara for 4-5 night, but with different staff. All guides were great." Read full review: 19 nights in Africa; 11 on a Tanzania safari

"My Aug 2022 trip"

I visited Kenya between 22 Aug 2022 and 1 Sep 2022
"Great organisation by you guys. Hotel, transfers and camps all great. Appreciated that conservancies and camp staffing seemed to be ethical and not exploitative.
Bit of a nightmare journey home with KLM but that was nothing to do with you!
The handling of the unavoidable 2 year delay was well done by Expert Africa.
We had great personal treatment - most of the time it was just the 2 of us in the 4x4s - terrific for us, not so great for them. Hope for full recovery of tourism!" Read full review: 10 nights in Africa; 8 on a Kenya safari

"My Aug 2022 trip"

I visited Kenya and 1 other country between 16 Aug 2022 and 31 Aug 2022
"We have visited places for treks before such as Ireland and Canada. Africa, on the other hand, is a different experience entirely and one that we will recommend to all friends and family for years to come. We will definitely return and were very sad to leave!

Thank you so much Lyndsey, you hit the nail on the head with this one.

Lyndsey listened to every small request we had, nothing was too obscure or silly for her and she made everything work. She tailored a fantastic belated honeymoon for us." Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 8 on a Kenya safari

"My Aug 2022 trip"

I visited Kenya between 15 Aug 2022 and 24 Aug 2022
"The trip was rolled over from 2020 so hopes and expectations were high.

It certainly didn't disappoint.

Returning to Kenya was always going to be a treat. The chosen lodges were excellent with just the right amount of time in each.
The whole trip worked well.

We were so pleased to be back!

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:
I cannot think of anything to suggest - it was a wonderful trip with great lodges and lovely people.
All beautifully managed (despite rolling it over from 2020)

I am already thinking about the next trip!" Read full review: 9 nights in Africa; 8 on a Kenya safari
