Return trip to Namibia after 35 years

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 12-Mar-2020 and 3-Apr-2020 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

We were able to complete two weeks of a four week trip before having to leave at short notice because of the travel restrictions imposed due to the Coronavirus.

What we saw and did in those two weeks we loved.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Nothing at all. Sabina worked tirelessly to sort out flights for us to get us out of Namibia and back to the UK. The situation was changing every few hours as did the airline timetables and seats were very limited indeed. We absolutely could not have done this ourselves. I should point out that we had booked our flights independently and were not meant to be flying out of Windhoek at all so Expert Africa really did go above and beyond in helping us.

We have used Expert Africa a number of times over the years and always recommeded to friends. This trip absolutely highlighted why !

Wonderful experiences in the Okavango

On this trip, I visited Botswana between 31-Jan-2015 and 6-Feb-2015 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Loved our two different camps in the delta. 3 night in each camp in different parts of the delta worked well. Because of the flight transfer times you usually get a game drive after you arrive and also before you leave (6 over the 3 days). We were very happy to move to a different camp and see a different area after 3 nights.

The people of Botswana are delightful , so welcoming and friendly and genuinely proud of their country and what it has to offer .

We have loved our second trip to this country.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

None at all . Will be booking another trip with you all again soon , hopefully .

Wonderful family holiday with great memories

On this trip, I visited Tanzania & Zanzibar between 18-Jul-2014 and 28-Jul-2014 and I travelled with 4 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Couldn't fault anything.

The reason I have used Expert Africa before and will continue to do so in future is because the staff properly listen to requests , are very knowledgeable and therefore give good suggestions and advice. Very efficient too.

Brilliant Botswana

On this trip, I visited Botswana & Zimbabwe between 5-Oct-2012 and 20-Oct-2012 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

A really fantastic experience, our first visit to Botswana, lovely country, friendly proud people, so much wildlife, excellent travel company . Would highly recommend.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Would never have recieved this feedback form had I not chased it up and I was keen to give feedback because it helps other travellers etc. Very easy to fill in.

Think I would like to make a comment about all the various vouchers that are issued. Nobody asked for them at all except the Illala lodge and even then we only had one between us because one had been lost,but it didnt seem to matter. It all seems a bit of a waste of paper and something else for the client to carry (or loose!).
