"Another Great Adventure through Expert Africa"

I visited Rwanda and 2 other countries between 8 Oct 2016 and 28 Oct 2016
"A really extraordinary adventure. An excellent itinerary in Rwanda, capped by the priceless experience of tracking gorillas and other primates.

A beautiful week in the Quirimbas Archipelago, including a visit to a hidden gem of southeast Africa, historic Ibo Island.

Just a wonderful experience all around.

Many thanks to Tracy Lederer for another round of assistance in arranging and assembling an African adventure (our third in three years through Expert Africa). An excellent initial recommendation for an itinerary and extremely helpful advise in refining our ideas. The arrangements came together quickly and worked almost flawlessly.

Thank you again Tracy and Expert Africa." Read full review: 20 nights in Africa; 12 on a Rwanda safari

"Wonderful trip"

I visited Mozambique between 28 Aug 2016 and 5 Sep 2016
"'Very satisfactory' just doesn't cut it. It was a magical experience.

The reason for the trip was to see the annular eclipse - which was breathtaking - but that turned out to be just one element of a very special trip." Read full review: 8 nights in Africa; 7 on a Mozambique holiday

"My Nov 2015 trip"

I visited Mozambique between 3 Nov 2015 and 17 Nov 2015
"We loved the country and felt safer there than in any other African country we have been to. A great holiday - thanks

Ellie was very helpful on the outward journey when our BA flight was delayed and we may have had to change flight. Luckily in the end we just about made our connection thanks to SAA's flexible check in timings!" Read full review: 14 nights in Africa; 13 on a Mozambique holiday

"Great Safari in Botswana."

I visited Botswana and 2 other countries between 27 Aug 2015 and 11 Sep 2015
"Wild dogs were on the top of our wish list and we saw them on our second game drive. Other great sightings as well: leopard cheetah with cubs, lion with very small cubs and so many other animals.

Stayed at three different camps, all in different terrains making for different habitats. Good food, wonderful people. Relaxing at Quilalea, mozambique rounded of the trip in a fantastic way." Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 7 on a Botswana safari

"My Sep 2014 trip"

I visited Namibia and 3 other countries between 5 Sep 2014 and 26 Sep 2014

"Botswana Birthday Trip"

I visited Botswana and 3 other countries between 24 Jun 2014 and 14 Jul 2014
"Overall this was a fabulous safari experience for the 5 of us, three being first time safari goers and two of us being experienced safari travellers. The game viewing is stupendous. The abundance of water from the delta makes for a very different Southern Africa Experience.

Great to see so many Betswanas working in the camps.

Food - we would have like to have had more game on the menu but perhaps this is made more difficult now by the hunting ban in Botswana.

We think that the camps/safari industry in Botswana need to invest in providing WiFi in the camps

Overall we would readily recommend this trip and Expert Africa for organising it - there was not a hitch during the whole trip. Thank you Megan

"Tanzania and Mozambique 2013"

I visited Tanzania and 1 other country between 22 Aug 2013 and 9 Sep 2013
"We had a wonderful trip and the transfers were, as ever, well organised, even through Nairobi airport. The places we stayed more than lived up to our expectations. The lodges were very quiet compared to last year and we did enjoy feeling exclusive. We enjoyed mostly having the game drive vehicles to ourselves. It is a shame that the lack of direct flights from the UK may be deterring people from visiting Tanzania, but we loved the quietness. We certainly had no problems although the return flight was more tiring and not so pleasant because of not being a through flight.

We were impressed with all our accommodation and are amazed with how such luxury is provided in the wilds of Africa. We did find that Mosiguard improved our tsetse fly experience. All the vehicles we used were comfortable. We can recommend a southern Tanzanian safari for the game we saw (everything bar rhino and wild dog), and the beautiful scenery and lovely people. I hope we shall return." Read full review: 18 nights in Africa; 14 on a Tanzania safari
