"My Jan 2017 trip"

I visited Rwanda and 1 other country between 7 Jan 2017 and 20 Jan 2017
"With hindsight we would have changed just one thing - we would have reduced our stay at Mountain Gorilla Lodge to three nights, leaving after lunch after our second gorilla trek, so that we could have spent two nights on Lake Kivu." Read full review: 13 nights in Africa; 11 on a Rwanda safari

"My Dec 2016 trip"

I visited Tanzania and 2 other countries between 31 Dec 2016 and 14 Jan 2017
"As a whole, the trip was fabulous. With Elizabeth's help in the planning stage, I believe that we created a trip with the appropriate number of stops ( not too many) and a perfect mix of interesting, different locations.

The logistics of the vacation were excellent. There was not a single "hitch" in any of our transfers. Each and every guide/driver was gracious, efficient ---- a pleasure to be with.

Thank you for helping to create a great adventure." Read full review: 14 nights in Africa; 7 on a Tanzania safari

"Trip of a lifetime!!!"

I visited Rwanda between 7 Dec 2016 and 10 Dec 2016
"A trip that we had planned to go gorilla trekking for a honeymoon, ended up as an early surprise trip that I had organised for our engagement (I guess I will now need to find another location for our honeymoon - but I guess we could always go back!)
This was a very special trip for us and exceeded all of our expectations (to top it all off - she did say 'yes') - Rwanda is a great place to visit - a beautiful country with welcoming and kind people - I would recommend anyone to visit! We will certainly be back in the near future! A trip of lifetime that we will cherish for the rest of our lives!" Read full review: 3 nights in Africa; 3 on a Rwanda safari

"The most incredible, amazing holiday "

I visited Tanzania and 1 other country between 3 Dec 2016 and 16 Dec 2016
"We had the most incredible, amazing holiday. It was truly a holiday of a lifetime.

The gorillas were unforgettable in Rwanda and I would definitely advise others who are thinking of going to do a trip to the golden monkeys first and two trips to the gorillas, as the second trip was even better than the first. We got so close to the gorillas we could have touched them (we didn't!). A silverback actually brushed past my husband - we all held our breath!

The safari in Tanzania was also incredible, but made even more special by our driver Faso who was so knowledgeable about all the animals and birds.

The holiday was not cheap, but it was worth every penny that we paid and would not hesitate to recommend Expert Africa. In fact, we are already of thinking about doing another safari, once we have saved up a bit!!

I want to thank Expert Africa for organising our trip.

We have lots of videos (especially of the gorillas) and photos if you would like us to send you some." Read full review: 13 nights in Africa; 9 on a Tanzania safari

"Another Great Adventure through Expert Africa"

I visited Rwanda and 2 other countries between 8 Oct 2016 and 28 Oct 2016
"A really extraordinary adventure. An excellent itinerary in Rwanda, capped by the priceless experience of tracking gorillas and other primates.

A beautiful week in the Quirimbas Archipelago, including a visit to a hidden gem of southeast Africa, historic Ibo Island.

Just a wonderful experience all around.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Many thanks to Tracy Lederer for another round of assistance in arranging and assembling an African adventure (our third in three years through Expert Africa). An excellent initial recommendation for an itinerary and extremely helpful advise in refining our ideas. The arrangements came together quickly and worked almost flawlessly.

Thank you again Tracy and Expert Africa." Read full review: 20 nights in Africa; 12 on a Rwanda safari

"Our Rwanda/Botswana trip feedback"

I visited Botswana and 3 other countries between 26 Sep 2016 and 11 Oct 2016
"Fabulous trip.

Great itinerary from Expert Africa - good variety of camps and length of stays were perfect.

Our main Expert Africa contact was actually Megan, not Tracy, but she is not in the pick list.

It would have been nice to have received a phone call on returning from the trip to ask us how it had been.

Our guide Theo was excellent and negotiated two fabulous groups for our gorilla treks." Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 8 on a Botswana safari

"My Sep 2016 trip"

I visited Tanzania and 1 other country between 2 Sep 2016 and 13 Sep 2016
"We were delighted with the trip overall, despite a few things regarding the Highlands.
Right from the start Liz was incredibly helpful, making useful suggestions and coming up with a great itinerary.
She was great when Kenya airways changed their flight schedule, and we had to use a different carrier.

Overall the trip was excellent - the middle part at Ubuntu was the highlight, followed by the Rwanda section and the Highlands last of all, but the whole experience was great.

We would certainly use Expert Africa again - and I was recommending someone only today to get in touch for something they were planning." Read full review: 11 nights in Africa; 7 on a Tanzania safari

"An extraordinary and fantastic adventure!"

I visited Zambia and 1 other country between 12 Aug 2016 and 27 Aug 2016
"This trip was truly awesome. We loved every minute of every part of it.

The opportunity to stand face-to-face with a family of gorillas in the middle of the jungle in Rwanda is other worldly – straight out of a movie (literally!) and I couldn't recommend more highly.

Same goes for the Sausage Tree camp in Zambia. Wow what a fabulous place! Having our own guide is key, and their facilities are top, top notch – from the rooms to the main lodge to the cars and boats they use, all of which makes a difference in making the experience truly extraordinary.

Expert Africa did a terrific job setting everything up for us – we had nothing to worry about at any point of the trip. Thanks!" Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 8 on a Zambia safari
