"My Sep 2018 trip"

I visited Rwanda and 1 other country between 25 Sep 2018 and 4 Oct 2018
"I had high expectations, and I wasn't disappointed. Thank you very much for an amazing trip. End to end, all arrangements worked well. I felt by looked after without any of the 'package' feeling that sometimes comes with an organised trip. High quality throughout, and first rate guides and other staff.

I'm pleased I spent a couple of days in Kigali prior to being 'met' and would recommend the same to other travelers.

I will certainly recommend Expert Africa to others." Read full review: 9 nights in Africa; 5 on a Rwanda safari

"My Sep 2018 trip"

I visited Zambia and 1 other country between 13 Sep 2018 and 9 Oct 2018
"Amanda who organised this for us was wonderful, and created the trip of a lifetime. All of the difficult things I had asked for were arranged to perfection, and were the highlights of our trip.

Have recommended Expert Africa to all travellers we met en route.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

One minor point. Can you add the date (or vesion number) to the text of each version of the paperwork. This is nomal office practice and avoids confusion with multiple updated documents when printed.

We will certainly come to Expert Africa again, but only on condition that I don't have to fill in 200 different reviews online again!" Read full review: 26 nights in Africa; 13 on a Zambia safari

"Wonderful Experience"

I visited Rwanda between 23 Aug 2018 and 5 Sep 2018
"All went very smoothly.

The meet and greet at Kigali was spot on and the Primate Safari rep was there with my name easily visible on a prominent sign and waiting for me. he introduced me to Sula who would be my guide for the rest of my 12 days in Rwanda.

The whole trip worked extremely well without any hitches." Read full review: 13 nights in Africa; 12 on a Rwanda safari

"Our August/September Rwanda and Zambia trip"

I visited Zambia and 1 other country between 19 Aug 2018 and 9 Sep 2018
"Terrific.

Rwanda was great to see the gorillas. they were magic.

Zambia, though was marvellous. We have been to places in Namibia, Botswana and Tanzania before and we really enjoyed them. However when/if we return to Africa we will go back to Zambia: Kafue and South Luangwa. The people were terrific overall, and we saw a variety of wildlife and birdlife.

"August 2018 All of Rwanda"

I visited Rwanda between 6 Aug 2018 and 18 Aug 2018
"This was an incredible trip that is even more amazing given the limited time Amanda had to prepare.

Everything I could have thought of from Rwanda was included. I would love to go on another safari prepared by Expert Africa, and I will be recommending them to anyone who asks for my opinion.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Maybe just a little more detail regarding information about the lodges and accommodations.

Hard to find something to improve on such a great experience!" Read full review: 12 nights in Africa; 12 on a Rwanda safari

"The gorilla holiday"

I visited Kenya and 1 other country between 6 Aug 2018 and 18 Aug 2018
"The trip has been excellent. We could entirely relax as we had always someone taking care of us, especially on arrival at the airports. Richard Trillo has been always very responsive and helpful in the planning phase. The guides and the drivers and all the people we met have been extremely skilled and helpful."

"My Aug 2018 trip"

I visited Rwanda between 5 Aug 2018 and 9 Aug 2018
"Learning about Rwanda was as important and valuable as seeing gorillas and monkeys.

A fine combination of powerful experiences.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Tell people to do monkeys before (not after) gorillas, as a warm up.
In my case two gorilla days instead of one was very good, but of course that's even more money.

My guide/driver was Bram. He was excellent. Always polite, helpful, knowledgable, prompt, flexible. Many thanks to him." Read full review: 4 nights in Africa; 4 on a Rwanda safari

"My Jul 2018 trip"

I visited Rwanda between 19 Jul 2018 and 29 Jul 2018
"Exceeded expectations.

Fascinating country and whist it sounds a little misplaced to say it the opportunity to confront the Genocide added a thought provoking additional dimension to a brilliant wildlife experience. Compared to our other Africa experiences the two stand out features were the opportunity to be more active (moving about on foot etc.) and the feeling of safety and a warm welcome from a people who still have next to nothing in spite of the relative success of rebuilding the country.

All of our accommodations were up to standard even if they are way below the better lodges in other parts of Africa in terms of pure lodge experience.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

At the planning stage perhaps make suggestions for alternatives and give advice to make choices.

For example, in Nyungwe it would have been good to have been offered tjhe forest treks and also a visit to the tea plantation (our guide tried to get us in but it was closed on a Sunday). As related in this form, our guide was quite resourceful in adapting our itinerary when the first day's sites were unavailable and in fact we are glad to have seen a couple of the alternatives that we may have missed otherwise. These could have been suggested in planning maybe.

These remarks really are intended as pointers to improve what is already an outstanding service that we have now used three times (Namibia, Tanzania and Rwanda) and will use again." Read full review: 10 nights in Africa; 9 on a Rwanda safari
