"My Jun 2024 trip"

I visited Kenya between 11 Jun 2024 and 23 Jun 2024
"An amazing trip - I loved every minute. We drove from Loldia House to Governors Camp which I wouldn't recommend as took 6.5 hours and was very bumpy." Read full review: 12 nights in Africa; 8 on a Kenya safari

"My Jan 2024 trip"

I visited Kenya between 13 Jan 2024 and 29 Jan 2024
"This trip was clearly very well designed, to take us from the "beginner safari" of Nairobi National Park with the lights of the city in the distance to the intense life of the Kicheche camps with morning and afternoon drives. And ending with the comfort of Loldia house was perfect.

This was my first safari and I was surely spoiled by the people and the sights--I didn't really think I'd be seeing elephants walk past my bedroom window!

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Not really -- this trip was a logistical feat and not one ball was dropped.

Thanks for a great trip." Read full review: 16 nights in Africa; 13 on a Kenya safari

"My Jan 2024 trip"

I visited Kenya between 13 Jan 2024 and 29 Jan 2024
"I highly recommend working with Expert Africa to organize an African safari.

Richard was extremely knowledgable about Kenya, all the possible camps, and was there from start to finish with good advice.

This was the second trip my family has taken with Expert Africa. My wife and daughter went to Namibia in Feb. 2022, when Covid restrictions were easing, and had an excellent self-drive safari.

If we go back, we would happily consult with Expert Africa again (though I am disappointed that they don't offer safaris in northern South Africa, including the Kruger area, since we may well want to bring our grandchildren someday and perhaps would like to be able to mix a Kruger conservancy with Zambia's South Luangwa area, or try the malaria-free Marakele area)."

Lots of variety and we feel as if we have been away for a long time – always the sign of a good break, I think.

"My January 2020 safari"

I visited Kenya between 27 Jan 2020 and 18 Feb 2020
"This trip was excellent and Expert Africa were, as usual, superb in handling the arrangements for us. We changed our plans a couple of times but nothing is ever too much trouble for the Expert Africa team and everything went according to plan. We all had a wonderful time and a memorable safari. I can't comment on the brochure as I'm always happy to work from the website and make bespoke arrangements with Expert Africa's superb team - helpful, friendly, thorough and knowledgeable.

I can't imagine how anyone could possibly improve on the fantastic service consistently provided by Expert Africa over many years. I already have next year's plans in mind and I know that Expert Africa will make the arrangements with consummate ease and efficiency!" Read full review: 22 nights in Africa; 6 on a Kenya safari

"A wonderful trip"

I visited Kenya between 2 Aug 2019 and 24 Aug 2019
"This was a slightly complicated three week trip, as we were organising the first two weeks privately, with our son who lives in Kenya, and then segueing this with a final "solo" week planned with Expert Africa. In fact, it became a bit of a hybrid arrangement and Expert Africa (Richard Trillo) was enormously helpful and flexible in assisting us to plan and book both parts of the whole trip.

We covered some 2,500 miles of travel in country (not including flights to/from UK), by road and internal flights, taking in Nairobi, the Aberdare National Park, Nanyuki, Mount Kenya National Park, El Karama Lodge in Laikipia, Sarara Camp in Namunyak Wildlife Conservation Trust, wild camping north of Archers Post, Buffalo Springs National Reserve, Shela on Lamu Island, Porini Lion Camp (Olare Motorogi Conservancy), Loldia House on Lake Naivasha, Lake Elmenteita and Lake Nakuru National Park.

Every part of the itinerary booked with Expert Africa went without a hitch and we felt thoroughly well looked after from beginning to end. We saw more wildlife than you could possibly imagine, including all of the so called "Big Five", met wonderful, friendly people and learned something of their lives and cultures. It has been a truly memorable trip and I would recommend Expert Africa to anyone who might be planning a similar experience.
