Wonderful trip to Tanzania and Zambia

On this trip, I visited Tanzania & Zambia between 30-Jun-2016 and 16-Jul-2016 and I travelled alone.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

A wonderful trip! It was interesting to combine Tanzania and Zambia for the variety of wildlife sightings and changes in landscapes.

Many thanks to Claire Scott (EA) for organising it all, and especially for recommending Kigelia in Ruaha, it is an amazing place! Glad I visited Selous before Ruaha as it only got better! Chongwe River Camp in Lower Zambezi still remains my favourite camp. The team from Tours Africa in Lusaka airport also deserves a mention for being so helpful at arrivals and during transfers.

This trip was a fantastic experience from start to finish!

Not sure you could raise standards any higher!

Third time I have used EA and have never been disappointed. Already looking forward to booking my next trip with your team in the future.

Memorable trip to Zambia

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 16-Aug-2015 and 3-Sep-2015 and I travelled alone.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

It was with great excitement that I was returning to Zambia (this time from the 17th of August to the 4th of September 2015) and the whole trip was once again a truly fantastic experience. Travelling solo is not a problem and you are made welcome everywhere.

A big Thank you to Freddie Sutton who arranged my itinerary: From our first contact, he was extremely pleasant, helpful & efficient and able to answer promptly (and in detail) any query I had.

On this trip, I visited Kafue for the first time and would recommend Busanga Bush camp as a starting point when travelling to Zambia. I was really looking forward to returning to South Luangwa and Lower Zambezi. By choice, I revisited Chongwe River Camp. The alternative camps suggested by Freddie were an excellent combination.

I was hoping to see Sables and Wild Dogs on this trip, which did not happen, but had plenty of other amazing sightings . The fishing in Lower Zambezi was fantastic, and once again I learnt some more fascinating wildlife facts from the knowledgeable Guides in various camps.

A special thank you also to "Tours Africa": Dave and his friendly team are punctual and efficient. They were also of great help liaising with other people to successfully retrieve and forward my lost luggage. Dave went out of his way to source an alternative camera for me why my own stopped working at the beginning of my trip... Fantastic service

Expert Africa's level of service is beyond expectations with excellent personal touch from start to finish.
