Travel reviews by Mr & Mrs S from Sydney

An absolutely wonderful holiday.

On this trip, I visited Botswana, Rwanda & Zambia between 30-Dec-2012 and 23-Jan-2013 and I travelled with 5 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:


This was our first trip to Africa and, thanks to Saskia Adye's excellent help and advice, it was a thoroughly memorable and enjoyable month-long holiday with fantastic game sightings as well as lots of cultural interactions.

We were extremely happy with all of our accommodation and transfers. The only disappointment was Rwandair Express which is the most unreliable airline that we've ever flown with, but Saskia did warn me of that in advance so I should have taken her advice to fly SAA instead!

Would highly recommend Expert Africa - and Saskia Adye in particular - to anyone planning a trip to this fascinating continent.
