"Our Sep-Oct 2019 African trip"

I visited Namibia and 1 other country between 28 Sep 2019 and 21 Oct 2019
"It was amazing! We had a wonderful time, especially in Botswana. The scenery and the lodges in Namibia were exceptional but our enjoyment of them was tempered by the poor condition of many of the unmaintained gravel roads. The government should get on to this if they are serious about the importance of tourism to their economy." Read full review: 23 nights in Africa; 12 on a Namibia trip

"My Sep 2019 trip"

I visited Namibia between 24 Sep 2019 and 14 Oct 2019
"We really enjoyed this holiday and had may memorable days. Staff at the lodges were all so friendly and helpful. The guides were all very knowledgeable. The self driving although long and dusty always felt safe and easy to navigate.Taking a Cool Bag from home was essential and careful planning of fuel and lunch stops was needed as facilities were few and far between."

"Botswana and Namibia Safari September 2019"

I visited Namibia and 2 other countries between 16 Sep 2019 and 6 Oct 2019
"Our trip exceeded our high expectations for bucket list safari experience. Tracy, our coordinator at Expert Africa was easy to work with and tailored the trip to meet our needs. We appreciated that she had first hand knowledge of the camps that added weight to her recommendations.

In retrospect we should have added a couple extra days with no activities planned so that we could recharge our batteries. Ideally this would have been done in Namibia due to the stratospheric high cost of the lodges in Botswana.

Our Day trip to Sandwich Harbour was fantastic, and if we had to choose we would have ranked it higher than a scenic flight over the dunes. We had the best of both worlds as we needed to fly from Hoodia to Swakopmund so the excursion over the dunes was a no brainer addition." Read full review: 20 nights in Africa; 7 on a Namibia trip

"The Namibian Engagement"

I visited Namibia between 15 Sep 2019 and 6 Oct 2019
"I had planned our engagement in Dead Vlei in great detail and even ending up in the wrong pan and there being no sunrise (fog) couldn't detract from it being an amazing location, possibly my favourite and a truly amazing country. I wanted to show Agita what all the fuss was about and Namibia didn't fail to deliver once again.

Thank goodness she said yes as we still had 14 days to spend in a car together - could have been a bit embarrassing

I would like to thank the EA team with special thanks to Megan (who sorted out a few wrinkles during the trip) for all their support and also the Wilderness team for getting our luggage to us at Wolvedans which is greatly appreciated, as we were starting to small by day four.

"My Sep 2019 trip"

I visited Namibia between 15 Sep 2019 and 1 Oct 2019
"Arrival - Wilderness Safaris, Rachel, met us and provided us with plenty of information as well as accompanying us through the car hire process up to actual collection of the car.

Navigation - The directions and maps provided worked well. However we found that trying to use mobile phone navigation apps was a waste of time as they didn’t work well and used a lot of data

Fuel - In the areas we visited fuel was readily available. Also all the fuel stations had excellent toilet facilities, most charged N$2 for their use.

Supermarkets - There were good, well stocked supermarkets in all the main towns we drove through and we were able to buy sandwiches and snacks from them.

Credit cards - we never encountered any problems using credit cards whether at camps, fuel stations, restaurants or shops." Read full review: 16 nights in Africa; 14 on a Namibia trip

"The trip of a life-time"

I visited Namibia between 12 Sep 2019 and 1 Oct 2019
"What a great trip. Superbly organised by Expert Africa (thank you Tracy). It was well worth organising a private and exceptionally nice driver (thank you Ronnie) as we were able to cover an enormous distance in great comfort (an 8 seater Land Cruiser with A/C and a fridge just for the 2 of us).

We saw and understood much more by having our own guide than we would have done if we had guided ourselves. We were spared the problems of driving on relatively poor roads and the anxiety of coping with possible punctures and breakdowns.

With hindsight we wonder whether it was worth the very long journey to Fish River Canyon. Yes it was amazing but unless you have arranged to walk the canyon, you see only a limited part of it from the rim.

We also wonder whether an entire day at a diamond mine that wasn't working was worth the bother.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

We think that your organisation and service was fantastic. Well done and thank you." Read full review: 19 nights in Africa; 17 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

"A really positive experience"

I visited Zambia and 3 other countries between 5 Sep 2019 and 24 Sep 2019
"Lucy helped arrange our trip. She was wonderful. I travel a lot, and this is the first time I have used someone to plan a trip. It was so helpful, and Lucy was a pleasure to work with. Overall, it exceeded my expectations, and I learned more about my expectations and where I needed to be clearer in the future. What I really appreciated about Lucy, is I messed up a flight (spelled a name wrong on an airline ticket). I got no where in fixing it and Lucy jumped in and got it rectified.

I did learn that when flying with South African Airline and the smaller airlines that they change flight schedules and cancel flights frequently, so don't book multiple legs of a trip on one ticket - unless they are the same day." Read full review: 19 nights in Africa; 7 on a Zambia safari

"Unforgetful trip to Namibia"

I visited Namibia between 1 Sep 2019 and 22 Sep 2019
"Expert Africa had organized trips for us before and we were always satisfied.

This time, our contact is Tracy. She did an excellent job. We discussed on the phone our interest and expectation. The hôtels she recommeded were great. It was her advice to have the rental car delivered to BullsPort rather than we went back to Windhoek to collect the car. It saved us time and driving. We wanted to stay in the Fish River Lodge and by the time we confirmed the trip, it was not available. She followed through with the lodge and at the end, we got a room.

We had a lovely trip !

A big Thank You to Tracy !
