"My Jan 2024 trip"

I visited Tanzania and 2 other countries between 29 Jan 2024 and 13 Feb 2024
"Another great trip, thank you very much. I am mostly clear about what sort of trip I am after but find it very useful to be able to bounce ideas and get further information and guidance from Expert Africa.

I greatly appreciate the end to end service that Expert Africa provides, which takes away any little worries concerning travel arrangements.

The 'meet and greet' service and the use of a hotel room between flight connections is a particularly welcome feature." Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 12 on a Tanzania safari

"My Sep 2023 trip"

I visited Tanzania and 1 other country between 30 Sep 2023 and 13 Oct 2023
"Our trip was amazing and Jessica was there to answer any questions and help with any changes we requested.


Suggestions for improvement:

One thing we thought was we almost would have rather done beach then Safari as we were so tired on the Safari from traveling. But we didn’t want to miss anything. This is probably only an issue for people coming from the US though!" Read full review: 13 nights in Africa; 12 on a Tanzania safari

"My Feb 2023 trip"

I visited Tanzania between 13 Feb 2023 and 4 Mar 2023
"One of our top holidays, brilliant planning by the Expert Africa team who managed to achieve two accommodation upgrades!

All our requirements were met and even after two cancellations over the COVID years we maintained all our original bookings dates ( 3yrs on) times and schedules.

Perfect planning seeing the migration in the southern Serengeti then fly on to the northern Serengeti to wildlife watch up there.

All our accommodation in mobile camps were high quality venues and of course Mkombe’s house was just an amazing experience.

Our final chill and relax at the Manta resort was perfect. What a place?!

I would like to thank the Expert Africa team for all their hard work planning and amending this trip through several difficult years. We were always given friendly and extremely efficient service and Jessica Plumb was totally brilliant. She was easy to contact and always available to answer questions or make adjustments to our plans. We would like to thank her so very much."

"My Feb 2022 trip"

I visited Tanzania and 1 other country between 1 Feb 2022 and 1 Mar 2022
"Our trip was quite the odyssey. A long itinerary with lots of moving parts.

I was surprised and impressed by Expert Africa who took care of the hiccups and responded quite promptly to take care of the unforeseen circumstances that pop up on a trip like this.

I wish I could book EA for all of my trips, easily the best agency I have ever worked with.

"July/August 2021: Zimbabwe and Tanzania"

I visited Tanzania and 1 other country between 19 Jul 2021 and 12 Aug 2021
"Our fourth trip to Africa with Expert Africa was another memorable adventure.

Expert Africa has always done an excellent job putting together workable itineraries that meet our (sometimes particular) travel goals. For this trip they had to deal with the vicissitudes of COVID testing requirements as well. The result was a wonderful sequence of adventures across beautiful Zimbabwe and Tanzania and was everything we hoped it would be.

Many thanks to our friends at Expert Africa.

"My Feb 2019 trip"

I visited Tanzania between 5 Feb 2019 and 17 Feb 2019
"Subject to the specific observations in each of the Lodge reviews and being let down by Expert Africa in respect of our final transfer from Dar to NBI, we had a wonderful holiday experience and would recommend Siwandu and Fundu Lagoon in particular as places to visit."

"Not the best for the price"

I visited Tanzania between 5 Sep 2018 and 22 Sep 2018
"Thoroughly enjoyed the holiday but not the best safari/beach holiday we've had in Africa.

Would recommend both resorts but Manta is expensive which we put down to location.

Nope; We'd recommend your company" Read full review: 17 nights in Africa; 12 on a Tanzania safari

"The best holiday we have ever had!"

I visited Tanzania between 11 Jul 2018 and 22 Jul 2018
"We all agreed that this was the best holiday that we had ever had. Even better than our honeymoon! A fantastic holiday to have with teenagers and we were surprised with the number of familiies that we saw.

Although we were busy on safari, the holiday still felt relaxing as we did not have to think about or do anything. All our needs were taken care of.

There was something for everyone on this holiday and all enjoyed the birds, scenery, butterflies, stars and crabs as much as the big game. All lodges were outstanding, although different and we definitely needed the four days on the beach after the safari to relax.

The only issue we encountered was Kearsleys not being at Dars airport to collect us and our very expensive phone call to them. They did respnd quickly to our call though." Read full review: 11 nights in Africa; 10 on a Tanzania safari
