"What an amazing trip, absolutely a once in a lifetime experience. Expert Africa planned and executed each portion of the trip extremely well allowing us to take the time to relax and enjoy our vacation. Our guide was excellent, not only knowing the most likely places to see wildlife, but also providing a wealth of information along the way."

"Ruaha, Tanzania: 21-29 June 2024"

I visited Tanzania between 21 Jun 2024 and 29 Jun 2024
"Thank you so much, Jessica! Our holiday in Ruaha was amazing.

Every step of the planning and booking process was simple and fun.

Our overnight and transport through Dar es Salaam was smooth, and Ikuka and Kitchatka Zumbua are both excellent camps that complement each other very nicely.

We would be thrilled to return to each camp some day!

We highly recommend Expert Africa. Thanks again!" Read full review: 8 nights in Africa; 8 on a Tanzania safari

We should also give a shout out to Lyndsey, not only for organising the trip and making some great suggestions, but also for rescuing the situation when our plane to Dar was delayed by 12 hours. Thanks, Lyndsey!" Read full review: 18 nights in Africa; 5 on a Tanzania safari

"My Jun 2024 trip"

I visited Tanzania between 1 Jun 2024 and 9 Jun 2024
"3 nights at Kigelia were excellent but 4 nights at Sand Rivers was a waste of time, so overall the trip was unsatisfactory.

Nomad should be much more honest about Sand Rivers. It may have been good in the past but currently there is no reason to go there and I got the impression that they are aware of the issues." Read full review: 8 nights in Africa; 8 on a Tanzania safari

"My Mar 2024 trip"

I visited Tanzania and 1 other country between 29 Mar 2024 and 8 Apr 2024
"Wonderful trip to Nairobi and the Serengeti. See individual camp reviews.

Only overall snag was Kenya Airways cancelling a leg of our return flight from Kilimanjaro-Nairobi which Expert Africa quickly stepped in to help with (involved re-routing the bush flights to enable us to fly Zanzibar-Nairobi instead).

Was very grateful for this support, quickly provided." Read full review: 10 nights in Africa; 7 on a Tanzania safari

" 2024 - a return visit to Ngorongoro and Serengeti"

I visited Tanzania between 27 Feb 2024 and 10 Mar 2024
"This was our fifth visit to the area spanning sixteen years and, sadly, the least satisfying - a mixed bag of excellence and disappointment.

Let's start with the positives.

For thirty years now we have been making almost annual trips to Africa to see and photograph wildlife visiting many different countries. Of all those visited there is no question in our opinion that the Tanzanians are the very best people when it comes to friendliness and the provision of hospitality and service.

The next major plus point is the service provided by Expert Africa's agents in Tanzania. You really felt looked after by their staff - staffing levels are excellent. As an example, we needed some medical advice which resulted in the need for some antibiotic medicine. No problem - they just flew it up from Arusha on the next flight.

Other ways they provided satisfaction was in the way little changes to the daily plan were taken on board and executed.

We choose to go to these areas in Tanzania to enable us to see cheetah. This is where our first disappointment happened. There seem to be fewer sightings compared with many years ago (we readily accept that no animal sighting can be guaranteed anywhere).

Years ago we would see two or even three separate cheetah sightings on any one day. On this trip we saw only six sightings over an eight day visit to the area.
In this same period over the years there has been a gradual increase in the number of lion sightings and total lion numbers. This puts greater pressure on the cheetah who are often killed by lions. Also this means that when a cheetah is found it is immediately surrounded by vehicles and this pressure may be driving them away.

We witnessed one outrageous situation where three cheetah on a kill were corralled by twenty vehicles in three concentric circles with a clear area of no more than 10 to 12 meters diameter. The stress levels shown on the poor animal's faces was clear to see. This behaviour by tourists has got to be controlled! But the commercial interests rule. Years ago there were some four or five operating companies, now it seems there are forty five - you see a new name on a vehicle numerous times a day."
