Another Great Adventure through Expert Africa

On this trip, I visited Mozambique, Rwanda & South Africa between 8-Oct-2016 and 28-Oct-2016 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

A really extraordinary adventure. An excellent itinerary in Rwanda, capped by the priceless experience of tracking gorillas and other primates.

A beautiful week in the Quirimbas Archipelago, including a visit to a hidden gem of southeast Africa, historic Ibo Island.

Just a wonderful experience all around.

Many thanks to Tracy Lederer for another round of assistance in arranging and assembling an African adventure (our third in three years through Expert Africa). An excellent initial recommendation for an itinerary and extremely helpful advise in refining our ideas. The arrangements came together quickly and worked almost flawlessly.

Thank you again Tracy and Expert Africa.

My Oct 2015 trip

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 19-Oct-2015 and 6-Nov-2015 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Our trip was fantastic and we didn't have to worry about a thing thanks to Tracy's excellent preparations on our behalf. This included advising us to check the spare tire in the back - and a good thing since we needed it.

Namibia is very beautiful with varied landscapes and friendly people - when you actually saw people! The itinerary was very well chosen and gave us a wonderful introduction to the country. Our accommodations were all very comfortable and made our trip very luxurious.

While Erongo Wilderness camp is really amazing and beautiful, all the tented rooms are not equal. Those at the bottom are nice in and of themselves, but have no views. We were a bit disappointed to be in one of these rooms considering we had booked well in advance, particularly since the camp manager mentioned to us that the day we arrived they had several walk-ins. This did not detract from our overall camp experience, which was really good.

Delightful

On this trip, I visited Botswana, Mozambique, South Africa & Zambia between 16-Oct-2014 and 2-Nov-2014 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

We loved our African experience, which was varied in location and captured all we wanted to see and do.

Kudos to ExpertAfrica for the detailed arrangements that went smoothly and without a hitch!

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Your website is okay, but we actually used a different one to look up details and comments on the same places you offered. That site was more visually compelling and easier to navigate. Having said that we still used your service -- and our overall experience with you was very good.
