Zambia 2019

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 20-Jul-2019 and 4-Aug-2019 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

This was a fantastic trip - many thanks to Claire.

The remoteness we experienced in North Luangwa in particular, and the quality of the guiding plus the lack of other vehicles in all the places we visited, were really very special indeed.

Walking in the bush, particularly with Remote Africa, was both immersive and addictive and coupled with the smaller, rustic nature of the camps we stayed at throughout the holiday has very much whetted our appetites for more!

Meru and Amboseli trip

On this trip, I visited Kenya between 2-Feb-2019 and 10-Feb-2019 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

We really enjoyed visiting these two contrasting parks, and Meru in particular would definitely be on our wish list for a return visit one day.

It was also an interesting change to stay at two camps with non-communal dining which were slightly larger than those we have visited in the past; both were beautifully located and extremely comfortable although as noted we were relieved neither was full to capacity which I think would have given them quite a different vibe.

My Aug 2016 trip

On this trip, I visited Kenya between 27-Aug-2016 and 6-Sep-2016 and I travelled with 3 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Many thanks to Richard for putting together such an enjoyable trip, and in particular for the encouragement to consider a camp in the main Reserve as well as the Mara Conservancies.

While the Reserve was obviously busier, the location and quality of the guiding at Rekero were superb and we were really pleased to have included it in the itinerary.

This was our best trip yet with Expert Africa; thank you so much to Megan (along with Chloe) for really listening to and helping crystallise what we had in mind, and for their patience in putting together such a well balanced programme for us.
