"My May 2019 trip"

I visited Zambia and 2 other countries between 31 May 2019 and 12 Jun 2019
"We enjoyed the whole trip very much although the travel days were very long. Transiting in and out of Mozambique was like something out of a Graham Green novel. Dirt roads, run down buildings but very friendly people" Read full review: 12 nights in Africa; 6 on a Zambia safari

"Another superb trip.."

I visited Malawi between 17 Aug 2018 and 26 Aug 2018
"Malawi is the third trip that we have booked with Expert Africa in the last year following Namibia and Rwanda (incorporating Uganda) and disregarding the issue with the Ulendo flight from Likoma and the miscommunication with Latitude 13, it was another wonderful trip.

Many thanks as always for the organisation and recommendations that have made our trips so memorable and special. We look forward to the preparations for our next one.

Sincerely, Anna & Malcolm

"Excellent support"

I visited Kenya and 2 other countries between 11 Dec 2016 and 28 Dec 2016
"Very well constructed itinerary which for most part ran smoothly.

We were disappointed with Malawi for the reasons mentioned and also for the costs associated with Lilongwe airport. The actual internal flight departure tax is $7 per person and the external departure tax is $35 per person. Visa charge is $75 per person.

Considering the country is regarded as 'poor' and want to encourage tourism the Tourism Board should consider requesting the Government to reduce the fees involved. Suppose the UK equivalent is Air Passenger Duty (APD) which is £13 per person for flights of less than 2000 miles." Read full review: 17 nights in Africa; 7 on a Kenya safari

I visited Malawi between 23 Oct 2010 and 30 Oct 2010
"In addition to having a wonderful time at the various locations it is also worth commenting on the other staff, the drivers we had were fabulous - Sydney was with us for the main and was informative and helpful throughout the long trips between camps - he drove carefully and respectfully and was always attentive to our needs.

We also had one more driver for a short journey who was good, we were met at the airport and escorted through customs and on the way home looked after well also, we even received a call from Wilderness Safaris on our return to the airport to ask if everything was ok.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Nothing major, we were dealt with at all levels in a professional manner, even when Claire was out of the office we had Ellie to cover who was equally knowledgeable about the trip.

I think the Heuglins Lodge info needs to be updated as the pictures are not representitive of the actual." Read full review: 7 nights in Africa; 6 on a Malawi trip

I visited Malawi between 1 Jul 2009 and 12 Jul 2009
"We would hav benfitted by staying longer in Country.

Wilderness safaris gave us excellent drivers and cosrructive help on arrival and departure.

Suggestions for improvements:

I hope to use your company again to revisit Malawi and possibly South Africa and Namibia.
We hope to be able to save enough cash and keep healthy enough to make further trips." Read full review: 11 nights in Africa; 10 on a Malawi trip
