My Apr 2022 trip
Botswana between 26 Apr 2022 and 9 May 2022
Despite our initial nervousness about this trip post- COVID, everything went extremely well. The advice and support provided by Tracy Lederer was invaluable in setting up our excellent itinerary. Whilst we knew that April/May are not the best times to see wildlife in Botswana, we were nevertheless able to see a wide variety of wildlife and birds during our trip, largely thanks to excellent guiding.
King’s Pool was a fantastic place to start as one would expect from a Wilderness Safaris camp. Kwara Camp was an excellent choice with a real focus on wildlife - we were very impressed with Kwando Safaris. Camp Kalahari was a very different and interesting place to finish - we had a wonderful experience there and would highly recommend it.
Overall the trip was amazing - it may have cost a lot of money but we will always treasure the experience.
Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:
No - we are very happy with everything done by Expert Africa. Thank you."

My May 2018 trip
Botswana and 1 other country between 13 May 2018 and 23 May 2018
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
Namibia between 6 Sep 2015 and 19 Sep 2015
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."
