"Excellent trip, well organized, great guide"

I visited Tanzania and 1 other country between 26 Jul 2019 and 16 Aug 2019
"A long trip, which cover. Overall key to success was our driver/guide Felix. An excellent spotter with terrific knowledge of the parks. We were very lucky to be with Felix for 10 days.
We thought all our lodges and camps were fine. Tarangire Safari Lodge was our overall favorite with great location and comfortable basic room. Nomad Serengeti Camp was the best camp, but also quite expensive. You do get great service for the money.
Animals and a sense of central Africa are why we went. Our hopes were well met. Every day was a new adventure.
There were no logistical problems, everything happened as planned. We simply had to be ready to get up and going early every day to see as much as we could.
Thanks for arranging such a great trip.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service: One suggestion about dinners. Only Nomad Serengeti Camp offered a communal dining table for dinner. We would have like that option at every camp. Our fellow travelers seemed to be a folks we would have like to get to know a bit better." Read full review: 21 nights in Africa; 12 on a Tanzania safari

"Our trip"

I visited Tanzania and 1 other country between 21 Jul 2019 and 2 Aug 2019
"I was absolutely delighted with the trip. The Expert Africa folks were all great to work with. if one person happened to be out of the office, someone else would respond. We never had to wait long for a reply through the planning process and all 'connections" and hand-offs in were seamless. You guys are true professionals.

The contractors you provided us with in Rwanda and Tanzania were equally well beyond satisfactory. I hope to go back someday. I hope you offer a discount for repeat customers as i would like to bring family members :)

Thanks much!

"Short trip to Rwanda"

I visited Rwanda between 29 Jun 2019 and 3 Jul 2019
"I was on a 3 week trip to Uganda and Expert Africa planned a short extension primarily to visit the Nyungwe Forest.

Amanda Bond was the agent and she did a great job of creating a trip that met my expectations. The tour guide and vehicle were excellent. The accommodation and food were great. There could have been a bit better co-ordination of the activities at Nyungwe, but in the end I had a great time.

Only wish I had had longer to spend in Rwanda." Read full review: 4 nights in Africa; 4 on a Rwanda safari

"Excellent arrangements; fabulous guide"

I visited Rwanda between 28 Jun 2019 and 5 Jul 2019
"If I had a choice of something even better than “very satisfactory”, I’d pick it. Early back-and-forth with our Expert Africa agent (Amanda Bond) were very productive, and we got the perfect itinerary. All the arrangements were all excellent. Some very minor negative feedback about our stay at MGVL won’t change that.

Our guide, Sula, was extraordinary. From the pickup at KGL airport, through drop-off for departure, his friendly, low-key personality were just right. His local knowledge and his obvious love for what he does were very reassuring that our visit was safe and positive for us travelers and for the people and environments where we visited.

We had an airline glitch at the very end. RwandAir cancelled our 10am departure and put us on a flight out at 0010 the next morning. That was a serious disappointment, but obviously beyond the control of … really anyone, other than RwandAir, at whom I’m still miffed (though I expect I’ll get over it). Sula made sure we were comfortably delivered to the hotel that RwandAir booked for us before taking his leave." Read full review: 7 nights in Africa; 6 on a Rwanda safari

"My May 2019 trip"

I visited Rwanda and 1 other country between 16 May 2019 and 24 May 2019
"Our trip was absolutely fabulous, from the accommodations to the food to the experiences!

Maruska is simply phenomenal; she goes above and beyond to answer all possible questions and to ensure each client has the trip of a lifetime.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

The only suggestion I have with respect to trips to Rwanda is to provide a bit more guidance on the tipping etiquette. While the information provided on the website was quite helpful on the amount to give the various folks involved in a successful trek, my husband and I didn't realize the number of folks involved in each trek, and therefore, didn't bring enough USD.

It would be helpful to note how many rangers, trackers, etc. to expect on a trek (on average) to assist with this element of planning." Read full review: 8 nights in Africa; 4 on a Rwanda safari

"My Jan 2019 trip"

I visited Rwanda and 1 other country between 31 Jan 2019 and 13 Feb 2019
"Magical trip, especially Rwanda was a gem.

We loved the rolling hills, the beautiful birds, the ever smiling people and of course the gorillas (but Rwanda is much more than the gorillas, let's be clear)
The trip was perfectly prepared by EA again, thanks to Lyndsey.

Sula, our Primate safari guide deserves a special mention!" Read full review: 13 nights in Africa; 7 on a Rwanda safari

"Go to Rwanda"

I visited Rwanda between 10 Jan 2019 and 19 Jan 2019
"We were very impressed by the country it’s cleaness the smiles of the people, seeing them walking on the road was an experience the way they are so beautifully dressed with all those colors.

One thing was a bit annoying was the tipping, so munch for the ranger so much for the trackers so much for the porters, we would have liked to pay more and to have everything included.

Concerning the porter it would have been compulsory because they are on site and not every body take them, so they go back home without payment, it is not good" Read full review: 9 nights in Africa; 8 on a Rwanda safari

"My Nov 2018 trip"

I visited Rwanda between 29 Nov 2018 and 6 Dec 2018
"We have had a brilliant trip and found Rwanda to be a remarkable country.
The people are exceptionally resilient and everyone was welcoming and friendly.
The level of service, quality of food and welcoming nature is marvelous.

Our personal driver Johnston was great, full of enthusiasm and knowledge of the country and culture. A credit to his company. We would request to have him again." Read full review: 7 nights in Africa; 6 on a Rwanda safari
