My May 2018 trip

On this trip, I visited Botswana & Zimbabwe between 13-May-2018 and 23-May-2018 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

This was a wonderful holiday and a great experience. Many thanks to Tracy Lederer for her excellent advice in creating our itinerary.

Victoria Falls was a great way to start the holiday. The Wilderness Safari camps at Little Vumbura and particularly Chitabe Lediba were fantastic, giving us a great combination of water and land based activities. We are big fans of Wilderness Safaris - their camps are obviously not cheap but are truly spectacular.

Chobe was also a good way to relax at the end of the holiday. We have done several safaris before but Botswana is without doubt the most spectacular destination - the wildlife, bird life, scenery and landscapes and the people are wonderful.

We hope to return one day and will definitely use Expert Africa.

Our Namibia adventure - September 2015

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 6-Sep-2015 and 19-Sep-2015 and I travelled with 4 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

We loved Namibia - the scenery, landscapes, game reserves and overall experience were all fantastic. The people were friendly everywhere we went and we felt safe at all times.

Driving was easy - long straight roads with no traffic, albeit some of the gravel roads in the more remote areas were a challenge. Our party of four are all well travelled and we agreed that Namibia was one of the best places we had visited. Highlights were the walking at Erongo Wilderness Lodge, the game at Etosha (particularly around the waterholes, where we saw large concentrations of animals), the solitude and wilderness at Damaraland Camp and the superb scenery around Sossusvlei.

Many thanks to Sabina and the rest of the team at Expert Africa for helping to organise this wonderful trip.
