"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

"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; 14 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

I visited Kenya and 1 other country between 6 Aug 2018 and 18 Aug 2018
