"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.

"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

"My Sep 2016 trip"

I visited Tanzania between 8 Sep 2016 and 22 Sep 2016
"Overall the trip was great.

In hindsight we would have spent less time at Fundu Lagoon and perhaps gone to Ruaha as well as Selous, but all in all we had a fantastic time. Everything was organised well by Expert Africa ." Read full review: 14 nights in Africa; 13 on a Tanzania safari

"My Nov 2014 trip"

I visited Tanzania and 1 other country between 14 Nov 2014 and 25 Nov 2014
"Can't thanks Expert Africa enough for sorting out all our arrangements, especially at relatively short notice. James D. was tremendously helpful. All the transfers worked like clockwork and we were met without hitch by the local agents. Particularly impressed with the one at Dar (Kearsley Travel) who were very professional (and, on our final departure from Dar when we were transferred to the main terminal by Coastal, we bumped into the driver we had had before who greeted us like old friends!). Slightly less impressed by the agent at Stonetown (Eco-tours), who was rather too keen to sell us the 'Stonetown tour'.. but otherwise transfers there were fine. All in all it was tremendous service from Expert Africa, which I highly recommend and would use again. Thank you!" Read full review: 11 nights in Africa; 9 on a Tanzania safari

"Overall impressions"

I visited Tanzania and 1 other country between 20 Jan 2009 and 8 Feb 2009
"We had a great trip. Everything worked very smoothly.

Four days at each Safari lodge was probably about right (although we were sorry to leave on both occasions) Fundu was lovely, and a day in Stone Town was a great way to bring the trip to a close.

What pulled it all together so well were the people who looked after us. The European managers seemed to be doing a great job and the Tanzanian staff - chefs, waiters, guides, escorts - were without exception attentive, charming and ever willing to do anything to make our holiday more enjoyable.

Suggestions for improvement:

None. We think you guys do a pretty good job" Read full review: 19 nights in Africa; 16 on a Tanzania safari
