"Escaping the UK Winter, embracing PCR tests to visit"

I visited South Africa and 1 other country between 26 Jan 2022 and 22 Feb 2022
"As always Tracy and the team came up trumps with recommendations, encouragement to actually travel while travel restrictions / PCR tests/ potential for sudden changes in entry requirements etc where a concern.
We felt so lucky to have escaped the UK winter , passed all the various tests etc and returned home relaxed tanned and without Covid.
It was our first visit to Mozambique ( encouraged hugely by Tracy when we suggested beach !). Would highly recommend Azura Benguerra.
We know South Africa well and would normally organise most of a trip there ourselves but felt in the current world circumstances that having the support, backing and knowledge of a company like Expert Africa was very important. Thankfully we had no problems at any stage.
We are ready for the next trip soon !" Read full review: 27 nights in Africa; 8 on a South Africa trip

"My Sep 2019 trip"

I visited Zambia and 4 other countries between 19 Sep 2019 and 12 Oct 2019
"We were very impressed with the Local Agents everywhere#

We had 11 flights. We travelled to Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Mozambique. We travelled into and out of Jo'Burg in South Africa 3 x times

We had countless Border crossings and 5 pages were completely used up in on new (thankfully) passports----more than 5 pages would have been used up, had the Immigration Staff everywhere, been less considerate and using up pages, rather than constantly stamping new pages!

Every Local Agent arrived early to meet us and took all the hassle out of all the numerous border crossings, particularly on the Chobe River on the boat, where you have to pass through Nambia and Botswana on entering and leaving!

In the end the trip is as good as the Local Agents, and the Local Agents that Expert Africa used were suberb, efficient and charming

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Well done Amanda. A wonderful trip, very efficiently organised and with great detail

All of our requests were realised on the day and we thank you for all your very hard work" Read full review: 23 nights in Africa; 8 on a Zambia safari

"Fantastic trip despite the airlines!"

I visited Mozambique and 1 other country between 23 Aug 2019 and 9 Sep 2019
"I have already covered airline problems, we also had a very unfriendly and unprofessional experience with immigration at Nampula.
As advised we were prepared to get our visas at the airport. We were met on the run way by a shouting official, eventually determined he wanted our visa. He took our passports while we waited for the luggage which did not appear.

In the visa office we presented the visa forms provided by yourselves which were rejected, with a lot of shouting, and new cards were presented to us to fill in. The official asked my husband what we were doing in Mozambique, replying ‘tourist’ he shouted that we could have our visas after everyone else. After issuing visas to at least 2 other people who arrived after us we got our visas. Full finger prints were taken, photographs taken, our money was checked for fakes! We definitely got the feeling we were being treated as badly and as slowly as possible.

Another point to make is that the immigration clerks who were issuing the visas were very incompetent, almost ruining my husbands passport. Can I advise that anyone's travelling via Nampula does not try to get their visas at the airport. If they don’t live near London then get a visa company to do it for them and pay extra.

After all this drama we then had the 4 hour journey to Nuarro all in the dark.

Another point is that we were expecting to pay $30 each exit from Mozambique. No money was requested.

Another note regarding visas. We had not booked our return flights on the same ticket so needed to retrieve our luggage in Nairobi and re-enter the airport. This was easily done at the visa desk, a transit visa was issued for $20 each." Read full review: 17 nights in Africa; 7 on a Mozambique holiday

"25th Anniversary & Trip of a Lifetime. "

I visited Mozambique and 2 other countries between 22 Aug 2019 and 9 Sep 2019
"In life you get what you pay [Generally] & whilst an Expensive Trip, we couldn't & wouldn't want to fault any part of it. A fantastic Holiday to a part of the World that we wouldn't ordinarily consider venturing to.

Accommodation was unbelievably good / Game Viewing superb & everyone that we encountered friendly & helpful.

If only we'd have found that Cheetah.!! - Oh well that's a good enough reason to return in my book.!!!

Thanks to Lucy Copson for preparing out itinerary & having the patience of Job with our various amendments.

Thanks Guys / Gals.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Off Hand no suggestions other than maybe a little more guidance re Visas & applying / holding hands a little more particularly Zimbabwe.

A great job

Thanks to Everyone involved." Read full review: 18 nights in Africa; 4 on a Mozambique holiday

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

"Unforgettable birthday trip to Mozambique"

I visited Mozambique between 11 Sep 2018 and 23 Sep 2018
"This trip to Mozambique was one of the most beautiful trips we've ever done.

The Quirimbas archipelago is a truly magical and very unspoilt place on this planet, and we do hope to go back there !

Special thanks to Tracy, who went out of her way to help us in putting this trip together.

Top class service, thank you very much !
