Our June 2019 trip to Zambia and Malawi

On this trip, I visited Malawi, Zambia & Zimbabwe between 18-Jun-2019 and 3-Jul-2019 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Fantastic memories - thank you Expert Africa. It’s hard to exaggerate the beauty of Africa.

Beguiling and awesome in equal measure. We loved watching the drama unfold everyday. Someone said, "you feel more alive living with lions”. I would add: "...particularly on a walking safari." Zambia appears to specialise in these and we found the guiding excellent, although thirty metres from a lion is plenty close enough for me.

The canoeing we loved too. A true escape from our provincial life where many of our friends only wish to be close to a crocodile if it were a handbag! I'm determined to get them to go on safari and spend their money more wisely. We are saving up for the next one!

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Not really. I'll certainly choose to travel with you again.

Ilikuwa ni mkubwa! Asante sana.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

We don't. You provided expert advice and expert services, and we will certainly be recommending you to our friends.

Liz at Expert Africa should be paid her weight in gold and given a free holiday. She rescued us when Nairobi airport caught fire and redirected us on another flight via Cairo. We were upgraded to business class, and provided with drivers to and from the airports as if it had all been planned weeks in advance. We arrived a mere few hours later than previously scheduled. Thank you!
