Serengeti Migration Area

The Serengeti is one of Africa’s most captivating safari areas.

Watch out for Leopards lazily laying on trees...

...or spot some giraffes on the wide, open plains.

...constantly moving in a huge loop, following the rains to find the replenished grasses.

"Excellent trip, well organized, great guide"

I visited Tanzania and 1 other country between 26 Jul 2019 and 16 Aug 2019
"A long trip, which cover. Overall key to success was our driver/guide Felix. An excellent spotter with terrific knowledge of the parks. We were very lucky to be with Felix for 10 days.
We thought all our lodges and camps were fine. Tarangire Safari Lodge was our overall favorite with great location and comfortable basic room. Nomad Serengeti Camp was the best camp, but also quite expensive. You do get great service for the money.
Animals and a sense of central Africa are why we went. Our hopes were well met. Every day was a new adventure.
There were no logistical problems, everything happened as planned. We simply had to be ready to get up and going early every day to see as much as we could.
Thanks for arranging such a great trip.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service: One suggestion about dinners. Only Nomad Serengeti Camp offered a communal dining table for dinner. We would have like that option at every camp. Our fellow travelers seemed to be a folks we would have like to get to know a bit better." Read full review: 21 nights in Africa; 12 on a Tanzania safari

"Our trip"

I visited Tanzania and 1 other country between 21 Jul 2019 and 2 Aug 2019
"I was absolutely delighted with the trip. The Expert Africa folks were all great to work with. if one person happened to be out of the office, someone else would respond. We never had to wait long for a reply through the planning process and all 'connections" and hand-offs in were seamless. You guys are true professionals.

The contractors you provided us with in Rwanda and Tanzania were equally well beyond satisfactory. I hope to go back someday. I hope you offer a discount for repeat customers as i would like to bring family members :)

Thanks much!

"Unforgettable honeymoon in Tanzania/Zanzibar"

I visited Zanzibar and 1 other country between 14 Jul 2019 and 25 Jul 2019
"Our trip as a whole was wonderful. I kept joking that I was worried something would go wrong - but nothing did (much to my relief)! It can feel like you have a lot riding on a big trip like a honeymoon, and we were keen to travel somewhere that neither of us had been before.

Overall, everything was seamless, from flights to transfers to the lodges / hotels / resorts themselves. For the most part, everyone we interacted with on the trip was warm, friendly, and eager to help.

Olivia was great - from initial enquiry to the final booking, she was responsive and clearly very knowledgeable about travelling to Tanzania. She managed to accommodate and re-work our itinerary/quote a few times as our dates changed due to work obligations, but managed to find something that worked within our budget and timeframe. We booked our external flights ourselves, but only because we had air miles available to utilize.

The trip was a great mix of safari / wildlife, short city break with some history, and beach holiday." Read full review: 11 nights in Africa; 5 on a Zanzibar holiday

"Trip of a lifetime"

I visited Kenya and 4 other countries between 24 Jun 2019 and 7 Aug 2019
"We have been to Africa before with Expert Africa and we knew what we wanted to see this time.

We then spent a long time with Richard Trillo and his team discussing options and then left it to him to put together an extended trip to hopefully tick all the boxes on our wish list.

ALL BOXES TICKED, this was a fantastic journey through 5 African countries, we have seen and experienced so much, so a VERY BIG THANK YOU to Expert Africa for arranging this for us.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

No, just carry on doing what you're doing now - it would be very hard to improve what you're already doing so well." Read full review: 44 nights in Africa; 17 on a Kenya safari

"Holiday of a lifetime"

I visited Tanzania between 23 Jun 2019 and 6 Jul 2019
"Expert Africa put together the most wonderful holiday ever. We were lucky to have two weeks - so spent 8 days doing the classic northern circuit where to see the wild animals so close was just breathtaking.

The Asila guides - Fazo in particular - are worth their weight in gold to show you a real authentic experience and not a tick-box encounter with animals. We saw so much and learnt so much.

All the accommodation was very good and we particularly liked the more authentic canvas tent experience that Kati Kati gave us as we really felt on safari then. Don't just opt for the big lodges!

Tanzania is so beautiful and the wildlife sublime. I was born there and had never been back but was overwhelmed by the positivity and humour of the Tanzanians.

The holiday exceeded all my expectations as I really felt that we had had a more authentic genuine trip and seen so much. it was very nice to finish down in Selous by the lakes and chill out a bit more while still going on game drives and boat trips.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

I think you are all brilliant and don't know how you could improve.

The booking of the flights is complicated and we really appreciated Clare's imput as it is so difficult to understand distances/ times etc.

I have recommended your company to many of my friends - and Fazo our guide who was amazing - so thank you for making this special trip so amazing." Read full review: 13 nights in Africa; 13 on a Tanzania safari

"My Jun 2019 trip"

I visited Tanzania between 22 Jun 2019 and 29 Jun 2019
"We thoroughly enjoyed the part of our Tanzania jaunt organized by Expert Africa.

I had intended to do these bookings myself, but it was much easier, and very pleasant, to have Olivia's expertise!

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

We were very happy to have chosen Expert Africa. I can't make comparative comment about quotations as I didn't seek alternatives.

Likewise the feedback form, as we have no similar experiences to compare. It's certainly long, but I was forewarned by Trip Advisor-type comments!" Read full review: 7 nights in Africa; 7 on a Tanzania safari

"June 2019 in Tanzania"

I visited Tanzania between 16 Jun 2019 and 24 Jun 2019
"This was truly the best trip we have ever taken.

I've never actually used a "travel agent" before but Expert Africa is different. Olivia was amazing in her suggestions and the itinerary that was planned. She was responsive at all times and connected with us throughout the period leading up to our trip.

Will definitely use Expert Africa again!!!" Read full review: 8 nights in Africa; 6 on a Tanzania safari
