"Wide-eyed safari wonderland"
The camping was basic but one soon got used to it and appreciated the closeness to nature in all its forms. The guide and crew were excellent. Overall things were well organised. Have made a few comments for possible further thought." Read full review: 16 nights in Africa; 1 on a Botswana safari

"Our Sep-Oct 2019 African trip"
"My Sep 2019 trip"
We had 11 flights. We travelled to Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Mozambique. We travelled into and out of Jo'Burg in South Africa 3 x times
We had countless Border crossings and 5 pages were completely used up in on new (thankfully) passports----more than 5 pages would have been used up, had the Immigration Staff everywhere, been less considerate and using up pages, rather than constantly stamping new pages!
Every Local Agent arrived early to meet us and took all the hassle out of all the numerous border crossings, particularly on the Chobe River on the boat, where you have to pass through Nambia and Botswana on entering and leaving!
In the end the trip is as good as the Local Agents, and the Local Agents that Expert Africa used were suberb, efficient and charming

Overall, I think I would have had a less favorable opinion of my trip to Africa if I hadn't gone to Botswana.
What a perfect ending to our trip. Thank you." Read full review: 6 nights in Africa; 3 on a Botswana safari
"A really positive experience"
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
"My Aug 2019 trip"
A big thank you to Lucy Copson for helping to curate and organise it." Read full review: 9 nights in Africa; 8 on a Botswana safari
"Zam Zim and RSA 2019"
Less game and far less variety than we expected. Dissappointed to find night drives not allowed in Zimbabwe. Expert Africa should provide more details of the flight operators for the bush flights and there needs to be tighter communication when informing guests and checking their documents and itineraries."
