"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.

"Back to basics"

I visited Kenya between 23 Dec 2018 and 4 Jan 2019
"As noted in our comments on Kicheche, the bulk of this trip was something of a throwback to times past for us.

This was not only for the fact that we spent time focused on the Mara megafauna but also because in Nairobi we indulged in the 'mainstream' safari-related activities of visiting the elephant orphanage and the giraffe centre.

It was all highly enjoyable and a reminder of many of the things which make Kenya a very special country in which to go on safari." Read full review: 12 nights in Africa; 12 on a Kenya safari

"Kenya 2017"

I visited Kenya between 6 Dec 2017 and 18 Dec 2017
"Another extremely enjoyable visit to Kenya.

Loldia House is a good place to start, offering a beautiful house that is not difficult to get to from Nairobi.

The Mara was ... the Mara! Cats all over the place - we even saw leopard on four occasions - the weather was lovely during the day, with rain just on a couple of occasions late on.

The standards at Governors' were as high - in all aspects - as we have previously experienced and although not the cheapest place to stay, you do "get what you pay for". Note, if you want to get best value from them, opt to take breakfast with you on the early drive ... we were out for the best part of six hours each morning with another 3 - 31/2 hour pm drive.

The Serena group have consistently high standards for what they offer." Read full review: 12 nights in Africa; 10 on a Kenya safari

"My Mar 2016 trip"

I visited Kenya between 8 Mar 2016 and 22 Mar 2016
"I had a really great time.

The highlight was Laikipia Wilderness Camp which was absolutely amazing but the return trip down the Rift valley was very enjoyable too. As always the arrangements made by Expert Africa were smooth and efficient throughout.

Altogether yet another brilliant safari experience - the best yet!
