My Sep 2018 trip

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 18-Sep-2018 and 7-Oct-2018 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Namibia was an amazing place to visit - quite different from any other country we've been to in Africa - the landscapes were awesome.

Starting the trip at Galton House and ending it there was excellent - it gave us time to recover from the flights etc and at the end of the holiday we could relax, have a shower, a nice meal and get out of our safari clothes, put our normal clothes on ready for the return home and generally chill out!

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Flying between camps was ideal as having spoken to people who were driving the distances involved were long and this meant they couldn't cover as much ground as we did. When the Brandt guide is next updated you may want to note that the restaurant 22 Degrees South is closed.

We recommended Expert Africa to several people who were thinking of future African adventures so hopefully more business will come your way in the future.

My Sep 2015 trip

On this trip, I visited Botswana & Zambia between 5-Sep-2015 and 19-Sep-2015 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

A magical experience as always in Africa and especially Botswana.

We would like to go back to Africa again in the future - it's a place that keeps drawing you back.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

I would not book an African holiday with any other company other than Expert Africa. You are simply the best!

Our 26th anniversary trip

On this trip, I visited Tanzania & Zanzibar between 24-Sep-2013 and 4-Oct-2013 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

It was excellent - we have wonderful memories of a really fabulous part of Africa to make our anniversary a date to remember.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

You have a very good reputation in the camps as they like the fact that each person in the Expert Africa team is an expert on the country they deal with. We wouldn't book with any one else for an Africa trip.
