Botswana, Zambia & Tanzania - Sep 2016
Ms A - Cambridgeshire
On this trip, I visited Botswana, South Africa, Tanzania, Zambia between 2 Sep 2016 and 24 Sep 2016 and I travelled alone.
A fantastic trip to Botswana, Zambia and Tanzania (my fourth safari); the three weeks flew by. Everything ran smoothly, and was as expected. A few flights were inevitably delayed, but not significant enough to adversely effect the itinerary...Read more about this whole trip
My Aug 2016 trip
R & J from Edinburgh
On this trip, I visited South Africa between 28 Aug 2016 and 17 Sep 2016 and I travelled with 1 other person.
Expert Africa delivered, as always. We arrived at an interesting and diverse itinerary, and all of the logistics worked well. We would thoroughly recommend a trip to the Kgalagadi, especially if you have been to Africa before ...Read more about this whole trip
My August 2016 trip
Ms R and Mr M from York
On this trip, I visited Namibia, South Africa between 1 Aug 2016 and 22 Aug 2016 and I travelled with 1 other person.
It was a good experience, although we did find some of the gravel roads quite hard work, but became more used to them. Perhaps we should have gone for a 4 wheel drive car. However the landscapes and the wildlife were stunning, ...Read more about this whole trip
Namibia to Mozambique
Family G from Melton Mowbray

This was a special trip for us as a family and Tracy put together some really great alternatives in order to make our timings work. Each country was different and immaculately planned. The attention to detail and our particular needs ...Read more about this whole trip
Kgalagadi to Etosha roadtrip
Dale and Sue from Sleaford
On this trip, I visited Namibia, South Africa between 27 May 2016 and 12 Jun 2016 and I travelled with 1 other person.
Overall this was a great trip. Kgalagadi is a magical park which generates a feeling of camaraderie among the visitors. Drivers still wave to each other like they are sharing some closely guarded secret. It would be possible to ...Read more about this whole trip
My May 2016 trip
Mr & Mrs H from Cardiff
On this trip, I visited South Africa between 11 May 2016 and 27 May 2016 and I travelled with 1 other person.
This is a third trip to the Kgalagadi and by far our best trip. The night before our arrival was preceded by a thunderstorm and torrential rain while resulted in a wonderful array.of desert blooms for the first 8/10 days. We were ...Read more about this whole trip
Mr and Mrs H - Oxfordshire
On this trip, I visited Botswana, Mozambique, South Africa, Zambia between 28 Apr 2016 and 15 May 2016 and I travelled with 1 other person.
All of expert Africa's arrangements went to plan very smoothly. Really enjoyed the trip but think we underestimated the amount of travelling we'd undertaken. Maybe 3 countries was one too many! Zambia and Botswana in particular ...Read more about this whole trip
Cape Town - Windhoek by road
Mr and Mrs L - Oxfordshire
On this trip, I visited Namibia, South Africa between 10 Apr 2016 and 29 Apr 2016 and I travelled with 1 other person.
This trip is one we have wanted to do for a while. We were invited to a wedding in Franschhoek which gave us the excuse to do it. We had a good idea where we wanted to go, and Tracy very skilfully interpreted this and put the ...Read more about this whole trip
Trip of a lifetime
Mr & Mrs J from Surrey
On this trip, I visited South Africa between 1 Apr 2016 and 14 Apr 2016 and I travelled with 1 other person.
Overall we had an amazing trip, such a shame that the Larids lodge didnt live up to the standard of the rest of the trip. Our agent Claire who we booked the trip through was SO helpful and couldn’t have done more. Her advice was ...Read more about this whole trip
March 10 days in the Cape
Mr & Mrs S from Bristol
On this trip, I visited South Africa between 4 Mar 2016 and 15 Mar 2016 and I travelled with 1 other person.
Expert Africa triumph again! Our remit was flora and landscape which we got brilliantly, but we never expected such luxury and fine dining. Many thanks for all you have done to make our short stay so wonderful and memorable. Read more about this whole trip
