My Jul 2017 trip

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 25-Jul-2017 and 5-Aug-2017 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

The trip was wonderful, the only issue being the ground transportation, or lack thereof, from the Lusaka airport to Latitude 15. I would recommend Musekese to anyone as a place to go in the Kafue National Park, not overdone as some of the South Luangwa camps and lodges have become, but more in tune with the area and the game around it.

Our 2014 Zambia trip

On this trip, I visited South Africa & Zambia between 5-Sep-2014 and 16-Sep-2014 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

I don't think very satisfactory is quite enough. I would describe the trip as excellent all around. The arrangements worked well, the locations suggested by Expert Africa were delightful and the people we met were engaging, helpful and knowledgeable.

For us it was great to be back in Zambia and for our guests from Brazil it was a wonderful experience for them as a first time trip to Africa.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:
We had to make a change to our flight from Lusaka to Johannesburg because our onward flight from Johannesburg was changed. The change was made but seating was not selected. I, at the suggestion of the Middlesex office, called SAA directly, but that could have been done by the Expert Africa staff just as easily.

There was some confusion with the Mukambi Bush Camp and the Busanga Plains Camp, but only I think because the Mukambi Lodge had not updated their web site to reflect the changes, so when we looked at their site it was not obvious what the Mukambi Bush Camp was, or if it even existed. Not a problem with Expert Africa, but something Mukambi should probably fix.
