"Wonderful latest trip to Africa."

I visited Namibia between 20 Jan 2020 and 8 Feb 2020
"The trip as a whole was really good.

Didn't see as much wildlife as we would have liked but we have been so often that we know that wildlife can be unpredictable. All lodges were friendly with, in the main, excellent food.

The quality of the guiding was a bit mixed ranging from excellent to quite poor, although in the main was quite good." Read full review: 19 nights in Africa; 14 on a Namibia trip

"Great experience"

I visited Namibia and 1 other country between 7 Sep 2019 and 11 Oct 2019
"An amazing adventure which we will never forget.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

The only thing that concerned us was the tipping on the Safari. We had taken enough USD to tip as per the guide, but did not expect there to be 5 people looking after us at each camp. What worries us about the tipping situation is whether the staff are being paid properly or are they reliant on tips." Read full review: 34 nights in Africa; 22 on a Namibia trip

"Third time with Expert Africa, still happy"

I visited Namibia and 2 other countries between 27 Jul 2019 and 25 Aug 2019
"Except for the very bad experience with Bidvest Car Hire (hired through Expert Africa), once again, we had very good experiences using Expert Africa for assisting with planning and booking the trip. We got highly qualified, fast and efficient help from Tracy Lederer from Expert Africa putting together a good trip to this part of Africa, where we have traveled may times, although were were late out booking.

We look forward to use Expert Africa again (our travel agent for the Southern parts of Africa)." Read full review: 29 nights in Africa; 21 on a Namibia trip

"This was one of our best holidays ever"

I visited Namibia and 1 other country between 14 Jul 2019 and 2 Aug 2019
".. - it was hectic - we had 3 weeks available and wanted to include the Caprivi Strip and Victoria Falls in our itinerary as well as Sossusvlei, Damaraland and Etosha, so we knew we would have to spend a lot of time driving. However it was absolutely worth it - all the arrangements put in place by Sabina and the Expert Africa team worked well and we found we had enough time to relax and enjoy the various places where we stayed - some of these places were very special but all of them had something different to offer.

Everywhere we went the people were really kind and helpful. We are particularly pleased that we made the time to visit the Caprivi Strip - it is so different to the rest of Namibia with people living a communal life in traditional African villages."

"Namibia road trip 2019"

I visited Namibia and 1 other country between 19 Jun 2019 and 12 Jul 2019
"Amazing trip which exceeded our expectations.

All the locations were great but each had their own distinctive feel and character. The landscapes were more impressive than we had expected and it was a real thrill to get to see so many animals and birds up close.

The people throughout Namibia were very friendly and the staff in the lodges were all very welcoming and made us feel at home. Even things like car hire went very smoothly, with great service from the Bidvest staff.

We highly recommend Namibia as a fantastic destination and will definitely be using Expert Africa for any other African adventures which we may have.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

The only thing I would change would be to hire a Toyota 4x4 or double cab next time.

The Nissan X Trail wasn't really robust enough for some of the rougher gravel roads." Read full review: 23 nights in Africa; 21 on a Namibia trip

"My Jun 2019 trip"

I visited Namibia and 3 other countries between 13 Jun 2019 and 16 Jul 2019
"We had a wonderful trip, stayed in lovely places, saw many animals and met lots of friendly people.

The arrangements made by Maruska, for the trip, were excellent. Lots of thought went into the itinerary, and everything worked well. All the transfers, all the lodges were super. We are so impressed by Maruska and will use her again in a heartbeat!!

The highlight must be the eles at Stanleys, just wonderful being so close to them.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Oops, never been to your website. Your name given to us by a friend who used you, and had an excellent trip. Will use you again, when the bank balance has recovered!!!

Many thanks, and especially to Maruska." Read full review: 33 nights in Africa; 16 on a Namibia trip

"Our honeymoon"

I visited Namibia and 2 other countries between 5 Jan 2019 and 19 Jan 2019
"We loved our honeymoon and couldn't have imagined a better trip!

We made sure we spent as much time as we could out-and-about to see as much wildlife as possible, but we still feel we were very lucky with the number of species we saw at what is considered low season!

We have so many amazing memories which we will cherish forever and can't wait to plan another trip!!" Read full review: 14 nights in Africa; 10 on a Namibia trip

"A wonderful month away from the UK winter!"

I visited Namibia between 3 Nov 2018 and 4 Dec 2018
"This was a wonderful trip.

We were lucky to be able to spend 4 weeks in Namibia, and whilst we covered almost 6000km, we were able to spend 2 or 3 nights in all the camps to get a real feel for the various locations.

We visited some areas in the South of the country, which we hadn't been to before, and these were generally quieter and more remote than the more popular areas such as Etosha. We loved it!" Read full review: 31 nights in Africa; 26 on a Namibia trip

"My Oct 2018 trip"

I visited Botswana and 2 other countries between 13 Oct 2018 and 4 Nov 2018
"Thanks for all help, suggestions and fast follow up, even when we had some challenges the night before we left Amsterdam due to flight changes the next day from Johannesburg to Windhoek.

Great you were thinking along how to beat that challenge and giving alternatives for accommodation if we could not make it to our first stop. Thanks Tracy!

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:
Inform your guests esp if they are used to safaris in other countries than Botswana, eg South Africa that the experience can be different. Im not talking about the game viewing which is obvious off course but the experience in the lodges. In South Africa you often for the same amount of money get more value (luxury, guest experience)" Read full review: 22 nights in Africa; 14 on a Botswana safari
