Trip rating: Excellent
"This was a marvellous trip, partly because we visited some amazing places which showed completely different aspects of Africa but partly because of the effort put into planning the holiday by Megan at Expert Africa. She was endlessly patient and wanted to get the trip absolutely right for us whilst staying within our budget. We were happy to take Megan's suggestions which proved to be absolutely spot on for us.

Many thanks for helping us to have such a great introduction to Africa. We will be back!

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Perhaps you could explain the varied nature of some of the transfers more clearly. We were surprised by the number of different drivers we had going from Livingstone to Muchenje and the transfer to the small boat across the Zambesi seemed somewhat precarious, (and hilarious!) but having said that it did all work! It was not quite what we expected but certainly gave us a feeling of adventure and Africa from the start!

I think that the organisation is to be congratulated on such an efficient and personal service. Many thanks"

Muchenje Safari Lodge

Muchenje Safari Lodge

"Brilliant introduction to safari"

4 nights Arrived 29 Aug 2013
"A warm welcome on our arrival. Joy and Rob really make every guest feel that they matter. Wonderful views from the main lodge and our room and every attention paid to guests comfort. The whole experience was really well but discreetly organised from seating compatible people together at dinner to managing different times and types of game drive.

We saw an amazing variety and quantity of animals and birds in only a few days. The guides were knowledgeable and enthusiastic and took great pains to give the guests the best safari experiences Food ranged from good to excellent, there was a generous drinks policy and the atmosphere was (unsurprisingly!) relaxed. We felt as if we were being entertained by friends.

We also appreciated the opportunity to visit the local village and school where some of the lodge staff lived and had families. It gave a different dimension to the trip."

Avani Victoria Falls

Avani Victoria Falls

"An enjoyable,unusual and relaxing hotel"

2 nights Arrived 2 Sep 2013
"We received a warm welcome on arrival and were impressed by the level of service in the hotel.

Beautiful grounds and pool with an unrivalled access to the Falls for which there was no charge on entry if resident at the hotel. Breakfasts were excellent. The room was comfortable and well appointed.

We used the hotel shuttle to go to the slightly more luxurious Royal Livingstone where we enjoyed the panoramic views of Zambesi on the terraceat sunset (recommended) and an excellent dinner. However overall we preferred the relaxed atmosphere of the Zambesi Sun and were very happy with our choice of hotel"

Victoria & Alfred Hotel

"Great location,service and food!"

4 nights Arrived 4 Sep 2013
"Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this friendly and very comfortable hotel. We were upgraded to a superb room with wonderful views of Table Mountain on one side and the harbour on the other as the hotel had been told by our children that it was my husbands 65th birthday during our stay. They also presented him with a birthday cake on the day and every member of staff we met that morning wished him happy birthday!

The food at the hotel was excellent. The breakfast buffet had a wide range of delicious cold foods and a substantial cooked breakfast was also on offer. We had dinner there on our last evening overlooking the harbour and the food was imaginative and beautifully cooked.

The staff were endlessly helpful and enthusiastic in their suggestions of things to do. The waterfront is an excellent location to stay as it feels completely secure and is a very lively place. We visited a couple of other hotels during our time in Capetown, including Mount Nelson but we can't think of a nicer place to stay than the V &A ."
