"My Mar 2019 trip"

I visited Zambia and 1 other country between 24 Mar 2019 and 14 Apr 2019
"Just what we had hoped for.

Although there were only two other guests in the camps on two out of our 10 nights, we still received dedicated and outstanding service at all three camps; making us feel quite special. Experiencing two National Parks and three camps was just the right mix of variety for us. Staying 3 or 4 nights in a camp seemed optimal.

Having been on other safaris later in the year it is clear more wildlife sights are likely in the dry season, but the greeness and the dust-free air of April made the challenge of finding the animals a worthwhile counterbalance." Read full review: 21 nights in Africa; 10 on a Zambia safari

"Another excellent holiday"

I visited South Africa between 22 Oct 2018 and 8 Nov 2018
"As mentioned elsewhere, the highlight of this trip was the Karoo National Park.

Its a pity that Expert Africa do not extend their horizon to this area. It is really worth taking a 3-4 day detour north of R62 and the Garden Route. Karoo National Park was truly exceptional, Graaff-Reinet worth a visit, Prince Albert simply delightful, the Swartberg Pass unmissable.

This was my fourth holiday with Expert Africa - they continue to be my first choice" Read full review: 17 nights in Africa; 11 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.

"Brilliant short-ish winter sun trip to SA"

I visited South Africa between 22 Nov 2017 and 5 Dec 2017
"This is the second time we have travelled with Expert Africa after our honeymoon in 2013, and on both occasions they have been superb (we never got round to doing the feedback on that first trip - sorry....).

Claire was very efficient and super-helpful with advice in response to our requests in terms of dates and locations, and her advice in terms of re-balancing the number of days we spent in different parts of the country proved to be spot-on.

Remote support for when things went slightly wrong - when our flight to Cape Town was very delayed - was great: on contacting Expert Africa, they were immediately able to re-schedule our transfer from the airport to our hotel.

South Africa - the second time we have visited, although the first was very briefly in a very wet August - was fantastic. At no point did we have any security concerns; the roads, admittedly generally between major population centres, were excellent; and the holiday experience itself was straightforward and relaxing, whilst encompassing some wonderfully special moments that will always live with us.

We now find ourselves as an informal local branch of the SA Tourist Board, so much do we rave about the country to friends and family!

Overall experience; trip as a whole:

You were superb - I can't really think of anything.

Thank you so much, and especially to Claire for making it all possible.

Happy New Year!" Read full review: 13 nights in Africa; 11 on a South Africa trip

"It lived up to expectations- will be back..!"

I visited Botswana and 2 other countries between 3 Nov 2017 and 18 Nov 2017
"We had a lovely time and hope to visit Tanzania, South Africa again and the 2 remaining Ker and Downey lodges.

That’s Shindi and the 1 in the Kalahari.

Got there in the end with feedback....no suggestions- top class.

Lucy was excellent and gave us great options and in the end delivered with her choices and interpreted our expectations well." Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 8 on a Botswana safari

"Great trip to South Africa"

I visited South Africa between 7 Oct 2017 and 21 Oct 2017
"- we had an amazing time

- saw lots of animals and wild life - safari, whales, penguins

- we had a lot of weather too - fire in Cape Town, snow just outside Cape Town, fog and rain in Kwandwe & Plett, stromy winds in Hermanus, but we also had some sunny days

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

- we like to book with specialist companies, travel agents that are specialist in a region or country

- we very much enjoyed our face to face meeting with Tracy and she put a very nice trip together

- we missed a bit the option of having a day planned out at Plettenberg or Cape Town for example, but we got all the information so that we can plan our days" Read full review: 14 nights in Africa; 11 on a South Africa trip

"A dream holiday"

I visited South Africa between 8 Sep 2017 and 21 Sep 2017
"We had a perfect holiday.

The hotels were all very good, the people are lovely and so pleasant. Getting around was very easy.

We absolutely loved South Africa, there is so much to see and do. Cage diving with the sharks, whale watching and the safari where fun.

We will be back." Read full review: 13 nights in Africa; 13 on a South Africa trip
