Another unforgettable trip to Botswana

On this trip, I visited Botswana between 17-Sep-2015 and 4-Oct-2015 and I travelled with 4 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

It was our second trip to Botswana and it was another unforgettable one!!!!

We visited different landscapes an environments, saw so many and different species including 3 times wild dogs, 11 different(!) leopards, lions, many and even rare antelopes, probably thousand elephants and finally a pangolin (not to forget about 120 different bird species in total !!!)
We met again so many friendly and helpful people and were happy to join celebrations of Day of Independence.

We will come back to Africa! This trip was our third one with Expert Africa and again everything worked perfect!

Many thanks to wonderful Megan who was so helpful in planing this trip with us and never got tired to answer all our (many!) questions.
Her organisation was perfect and we definitely will plan our next trip to Africa with this very special and knowledgeable agency again!

Thanks again and all the very best to all of you!!!

Amazing trip to Zambia

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 25-Aug-2013 and 8-Sep-2013 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

We've had a fantastic trip to Zambia (Lower Zambezi and South Luangwa) beating all our expectations.

The itinerary was perfect, the accomodations excellent, the wildlife spectacular and as one of multiple highlights we saw even wild dogs on our transfer from Chikoko Tree Camp to Lunagwa River Camp when passing the Nsefu sector - really amazing!
Hope to come back soon to these beautiful places!!!

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

No - everything was perfect !!!
This was our second trip with Expert Africa (2012 Victoria Falls & Botswana) and we've had the same great experience with excellent service, good advice and unbeatable friendly and helpful team members!!!!

Dear Ellie - thanks again so much for all your efforts and I would be happy if you would help us again when planning another trip to Africa!

All the best

Amazing trip to Zimbabwe / Botswana

On this trip, I visited Botswana & Zimbabwe between 30-Jul-2012 and 13-Aug-2012 and I travelled with 6 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Since many years it was a dream for me to visit Botswana and the Okavango delta.
I've read many travel guides (also the very recommendable one of Chris McIntyre!) and had contact to many travel agencies.
Although living in Germany I've chosen Expert Africa to help me and organize this trip for us.

From the first contacts I knew that it was the right decision - it couldn't have been better somewhere else:
Lucy and Megan were always helpful, patient and with great knowledge about the different locations and accommodations.

The organisation of the trip was excellent - we've had no problems, everything worked perfectly and in conclusion the trip was the one we've hoped to have. All the places we've visited had their own and special atmosphere and showing something different.

Thanks again to the people of Expert Africa who made an excellent job!
I can recommend Expert Africa not highly enough and whenever I/we will return to Africa I will ask them to manage it for me.
