"Summary of our trip"

I visited South Africa between 26 Jan 2020 and 15 Feb 2020
"Claire put together an excellent itinerary with a nice selection of accommodation none of which was large impersonal corporate hotels. The whole trip worked well and in particular driving directions were spot on which was very helpful given the distances we covered. We did use a friend's map of the Garden Route as the directions were missing details of actual distances - this might be helpful for future clients. We used 'MapStudio Garden Route & Route 62' a lot of the time.

Our only hairy moment was taking the car back to the airport (which we had avoided on arrival by having car delivered to hotel) and this was slightly stressful as we had to return the car with a full tank but the BP garage was located on an obscure location on the other side of the car rental return area. It was chaotic at the BP station as everyone was filling up before returning their cars. That said the check in at Bidvest was very good and straightforward.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Although the holiday was expensive it was worth it and we couldn't have put it together without Claire's assistance." Read full review: 20 nights in Africa; 18 on a South Africa trip

"My Apr 2019 trip"

I visited South Africa between 30 Apr 2019 and 14 May 2019
"For us it always a pleasure to travel to southern Africa, which we have been doing for over 40 years.

As ever the Expert Africa consultants were excellent and we wouldn't consider travelling to Africa without their help and advice.

Although the travel tags and wallet are extremely well made and gratefully received, we found them bulky and might act more like flashing beacon to unscrupulous locals to locate unsuspecting tourists! We didn't use them preferring a simply plastic wallet on the basis that 'more is less'..

We booked our hotel accommodation The Taj in Cape Town ourselves. Located opposite St George's cathedral it is a very comfortable and welcoming place with staff eager to please. They also provide a complimentary shuttle service, by limousine (Range Rover/Jaguar ) to anywhere within 10 Km area and a regular shuttle bus to VA Waterfront and Table Mountain. Most rooms have views of Table Mountain too." Read full review: 14 nights in Africa; 5 on a South Africa trip

"AFRICA 18 February and March"

I visited South Africa between 21 Feb 2018 and 24 Mar 2018
"Another very successful trip to Africa. It was all a very interesting experience but it was so different from the Africa of further north with which we are very familiar.

We enjoyed everything, but the one thing that stands out is the charm, the efficiency and the helpfulness of all the staff everywhere. Well done South Africa! Come here and teach us a lesson.

"Cape Town to Port Elizabeth, Feb 2017"

I visited South Africa between 16 Feb 2017 and 6 Mar 2017
"Our trip was very enjoyable, the weather was superb. February is cleary a good time to go. It's worth looking at the lodge's seasonal pricing, as we found our most expensive lodge (Kwandwe Great Fish River) had reduced prices from 1 March.

We found when we arrived that it wasn't possible to book a winery lunch with only a few days notice - most were booked a month or so in advance.

Our peronal highlights were Game watching at Kwandwe and the Addo Elephant park, together with the coastal scenery at places like the Cape of Good Hope, Robberg Peninsula, Nature's Valley and Storm River Mouth." Read full review: 18 nights in Africa; 18 on a South Africa trip

I visited South Africa between 27 Feb 2016 and 12 Mar 2016
"The trip was very well organised, as we have come to expect from Expert Africa, and all the accommodation was of an exceptionally high standard.

I visited South Africa between 26 Jan 2016 and 16 Feb 2016
"A great success. We were delighted with Expert Africa. ( as expected after our experience in Namibia five years ago ) and would have no hesitation in recommending you to anybody wishing a great experience in Africa.

Clair and Tracy were always Very helpful and catered for our every need. Our reservations about Mimosa Lodge were easily resolved and did not reflect adversely on Expert Africa or its employees.
