Travel reviews by Mr and Mrs M from Lewes

My Oct 2013 trip

On this trip, I visited Tanzania between 22-Oct-2013 and 31-Oct-2013 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


We had the most wonderful trip from start to finish - Claire at Expert Africa was incredibly helpful & efficient, made really excellent suggestions. The guidance notes were very helpful and it was a lovely touch to received the Brandt guide & the beautiful wallet.

All our ground arrangements were perfect. The two guides they supplied were very good and knowledgeable. The six days we spent with Gabrielle were fantastic - he was happy to allow us to spend hours just observing animal behaviour & took great trouble to explain & identify various animals & plants.

Both guides were keen to make sure that Richard was put into the best available spot as he is a very keen photographer. Two picnics stand our in particular - one with David in Ngorongoro were we had our lunch in a spectacular location away from the other tourists! and with Gabrielle we had a brilliant 'breakfast with hippos' experience!

It was lovely to have a break at Arusha on the way to the airport, it was much appreciated to be able to have a shower, repack for the flight & have a rest before travelling home overnight. Although Onsea House is lovely we felt the staff somewhat lacked the charm & care that we had experienced elsewhere.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Expert Africa - an extremely professional organisation.
