"My Sep 2022 trip to Meru, Samburu and Massai Mara"

I visited Kenya between 14 Sep 2022 and 25 Sep 2022
"Originally trip was booked for 2020. We were pleased the trip was rolled over fairly painlessly to 2021 and then 2022.

Jessica has been there over the past three years to provide us with a high level of service.

This is our seventh safari (fourth with Expert Africa) and probably our best although they are all difficult to compare.

The local agent to meet us on arriving at Nairobi airport, Isaac? and transfers to and from Nairobi Wilson were very good" Read full review: 11 nights in Africa; 10 on a Kenya safari

"The holiday exceeded our expectations."

I visited Kenya between 13 Aug 2022 and 26 Aug 2022
"The holiday exceeded our expectations. It is a lot of money, but we felt we got good value and wonderful experiences. Everything worked very smoothly, staff could not have been more helpful and clearly post-Covid visitors returning is key. We were a little concerned about the election but it has all gone relatively smoothly. The day in Nairobi was very enjoyable - being a Sunday traffic was not a problem.

The only downer was before we went, we had to spend hours battling with the Covid and visa forms - a bit stressful, but Jessica was very helpful (and patient) with us about this and helped as much as possible.

This is our 3rd holiday with Expert Africa and we would book again, but would prefer to have flights included for future holidays, given possible Covid cancellations and hassles." Read full review: 13 nights in Africa; 13 on a Kenya safari

"Your services are terrific, knowledgeable, helpful, prompt and informative.

Richard was always attentive to our needs, and is a pleasure to work with.

We would certainly call him again in the future.

In summary, our experience on our Africa safari was an "11" out of "10"! Absolutely amazing!! Trip of a lifetime!" Read full review: 10 nights in Africa; 10 on a Kenya safari

"My June 2022 trip"

I visited Kenya between 15 Jun 2022 and 26 Jun 2022
"Excellent and very enjoyable.

When BA cancelled my return flight, the process of re-scheduling this with Expert Africa did not go very well in certain respects, although was ultimately sorted out to my satisfaction.

Richard Trillo has been exceptionally helpful." Read full review: 11 nights in Africa; 10 on a Kenya safari

"My Jun 2022 trip"

I visited Kenya between 3 Jun 2022 and 18 Jun 2022
"Our trip was super - the only niggles were in the UK before we left. Flights with BA cancelled and various bits of paperwork to sort. We had problems completing the online 'Travellers Health Surveillance Form'. It would not submit on our desktop but we eventually got it to work on our phones. However nobody ever asked to see it when we arrived in Kenya!

All niggles were quickly forgotten about once we arrived in Kenya and we didn't encounter any further problems/issues. All of the arrangements went perfectly and it was just so nice to get away and enjoy a marvellous holiday.

So, many thanks to Richard Trillo and the team at Expert Africa and all the people in Kenya "on the ground" (or even in the air!)" Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 13 on a Kenya safari

"My Mar 2022 trip"

I visited Kenya between 4 Mar 2022 and 16 Mar 2022
"Wow! It took lots of planning, two years of delay, zigging and zagging in a pandemic with various federal and provincial lockdowns, coordinating four people but we finally made it, and it was fantastic! Remarkably, flights were on time and the logistics went smoothly though we did have a flat tire on the way to the airport on the last day, but fortunately, the flight was late (that was nerve wracking). The people in Kenya could not have been nicer or more accommodating.

Kudos to Olivia who was responsible for the planning of the trip originally. Our goals were to experience Kenya and a bit of its culture, see lots of animals, and be active. Goals accomplished and expectations exceeded!! And thanks to Richard for his cat herding skills and organizing, then re-organizing, then tweaking yet again as Canadian travel restrictions shifted during Covid times.

With respect to Covid, since the camps are outside and contact with people is minimized, it was a safe experience. I probably saw fewer people in Kenya in two weeks that I would at the grocery store on the weekend.

"My Feb 2022 trip"

I visited Kenya between 12 Feb 2022 and 21 Feb 2022
"The trip overall was excellent. We have followed this itinerary before and it is always excellent.

We must mention the support offered by Richard Trillo. Richard is always helpful and on this occasion he was put to the test due to the documentation requirements for travel. He always offered timely and accurate advice and did so with a high degree of patience which was probably necessary at times. We have total confidence in Richard organising these trips for us.

We must point out that Heathrow airport was extremely well organised in terms of documentation etc. Nairobi airport was the opposite.
