A great return to Kenya

On this trip, I visited Kenya between 3-Sep-2019 and 17-Sep-2019 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip. All the components ran very smoothly and we felt well taken care of throughout. Expert Africa had clearly passed on our dietary requests to the camps in advance.

We have previously visited Kicheche Laikipia and Kicheche Bush and this trip confirmed our liking for Kicheche Camps in terms of style, ethos and level of comfort.

My Jan 2016 trip

On this trip, I visited Kenya between 9-Jan-2016 and 23-Jan-2016 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

The whole trip was wonderful. All three camps were excellent, and the three different areas went very well together.

The order we visited the camps (Meru, Ol Pejeta, Olare Motorogi) worked well for flights but also worked very well in terms of wildlife viewing. We were very happy with the balance of time we spent in each area. Everything went very smoothly, guiding was of very high quality in all of the camps. All camps knew that we did not eat meat and we were very well catered for in each of them.

The advice we received from Richard and from Ellie was very good. Both were keen to listen to what we wanted from our trip and both were very knowledgable.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

We are very happy with the service provided (which is why it is the second time we have used you!)

Superb trip to Zambia

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 21-Aug-2013 and 2-Sep-2013 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

This was an excellent trip, great camps, super guiding in excellent locations and brilliant game viewing. All of the arrangements worked very well - everything went smoothly.

We were impressed by Expert Africa, and will certainly use them again.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

None - we are very happy with the service you provide. We met quite a few travellers you had sent to Zambia and they all seemed impressed.
