Travel reviews by Mr D. from Witney


My Sep 2017 trip

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 15-Sep-2017 and 3-Oct-2017 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

This was our first trip to Zambia and it was a very positive experience. We met a lot of multiple returnees and I can easily see why.

It is a shame it is classified as a malaria area because everywhere we went managers told us they did not have mosquitoes. The other wildlife is fantastic and plentiful at this time of year (late September - October).

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

I think your team do a great job at the moment and I certainly recommend Expert Africa wholeheartedly whenever friends are thinking about visiting the area.

As Arnie famously said, I'll be back!

Overall Satisfaction

On this trip, I visited Botswana & South Africa between 2-Oct-2011 and 20-Oct-2011 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

GoodGood

The only reason for the rating of Fairly Satisfactory is the flights on SAA and the problem with Mack Air aircraft, otherwise everything was very satisfactory indeed.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Not really; we will be happy to use the Company again when the time comes.
