Our June 2014 trip to Botswana

On this trip, I visited Botswana & Zimbabwe between 9-Jun-2014 and 19-Jun-2014 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


This was the trip we have wanted to make for many years and I found the information regarding Expert Africa in a tour book in our local library. Since then, we have told everyone we know about this company. Every detail was taken care of and the tour was booked according to our wishes.

This was not a tour where we went on a specific route; we decided the area of Africa we wished to visit and what we hoped to see and they could advise us of the places we could stay. In our case we wanted to see elephants and the delta region and this area of Botswana was recommended.

We then checked their web site and decided on the camps. I called Maruska a few times and she was very helpful and answered all of my questions. The book on Botswana was written by Chris McIntyre for Brandt and there was much information on local customs and regions.

If we return to Africa, we will book through Expert Africa again.
