My Aug 2015 trip

On this trip, I visited Tanzania between 6-Aug-2015 and 19-Aug-2015 and I travelled with 4 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

This was to be a special and rare trip for us as all members of the family were to be together.

In fact the trip met and even exceeded our expectations. We have separately commented between us that this has been the trip of a lifetime.

Many thanks to Expert Africa and special thanks to Ellie who patiently guided us towards the right destinations and the right places to stay. We are very grateful.

We look forward to talking to you again - sometime - about our next trip!

My Oct 2011 trip

On this trip, I visited Tanzania & Zanzibar between 29-Oct-2011 and 11-Nov-2011 and I travelled with 8 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Despite some of the slightly negative criticisms on the earlier pages we had an excellent holiday. All connections etc worked well, we saw loads of game and birds - which was why we went.

I believe we picked the right game parks - plenty of game but fewer people, which, again, was what we wanted.

Thanks to Expert Africa for helping to make it happen!

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Can't think of anything. We were pleased with the service and information provided.

I've mentioned it before, and I wouldn't want to give the impression that these detracted signicantly from our enjoyment but tetses in Mdonya and the non-availability of walking safaris in Mdonya were slight "hiccups".

Thanks to Liz for all your help.
