"My Feb 2024 trip"

I visited Kenya between 12 Feb 2024 and 24 Feb 2024
"Our first visit to Kenya and we were not disappointed at all.

We couldn't fault any aspects of our trip, the service, or our overall experience.

Not having spotted a leopard, we have every incentive to come back!

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

No. Having used other agents in Africa, we rated Expert Africa the best we have used." Read full review: 12 nights in Africa; 11 on a Kenya safari

"My Jan 2024 trip"

I visited Kenya between 19 Jan 2024 and 29 Jan 2024
"Not as good as most previous years due to lack of access to the Triangle and to the Mara.

Mostly due to weather conditions but also due to lack of investment in terms of accessing the conservancy." Read full review: 10 nights in Africa; 9 on a Kenya safari

"OurSep 2023 trip"

I visited Kenya between 15 Sep 2023 and 28 Sep 2023
"Fabulous trip. Learnt a lot even though we have been on many safaris.

Great range of experiences between the 2 camps - loved both of them - and wonderful relaxation at the beach.

I should like to discuss the Wildlife Survey form and the animal sightings you put on your website. I thought looking at your website that these were the animals with some chance% of what we might see. But of course there are lots and lots of others. Also find the more detail bit on this questionairre a bit confusing." Read full review: 13 nights in Africa; 12 on a Kenya safari

"My Jan 2023 trip to Kenya"

I visited Kenya between 20 Jan 2023 and 30 Jan 2023
"Excellent.

As always we very much appreciate the support of Richard Trillo at all stages of the planning.

He is able to provide expert knowledge and advice and this sometimes appears to be well outside normal office hours." Read full review: 10 nights in Africa; 9 on a Kenya safari

"Return to Kenya after 36 years"

I visited Kenya between 20 Jan 2023 and 4 Feb 2023
"On the whole it was an excellent and well organised trip to some vastly different parks. Amazing numbers of lions seen (70).

With hindsight we would have flown from Sand River to Elephant Pepper.

All the staff at the lodges were extremely welcoming and helpful." Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 14 on a Kenya safari

"My Jan 2023 trip"

I visited Kenya between 17 Jan 2023 and 27 Jan 2023
"We originally made a booking for November 2022 and the full amounts payable had been remitted.

As a result of my wife having to undergo a shoulder operation soon after the booking we had to postpone the trip. Richard from EA was very helpful in arranging for changing the dates to January 2023 without any penalties from the camps where the bookings had been originally made."

"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
