We will be back to Namibia!

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 1-Jul-2018 and 15-Jul-2018 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

This trip was so different, but so special for us.

We had never self-driven anywhere while on vacation, so this was a first. It allowed us to see the country in a different way. There is so much to do in Namibia, and we wish we could have stayed longer & seen more, but that just gives us a reason to come back.

Expert Africa continued to provide amazing service, on this, our third trip with them.

Lucy organized our trip for us. She is so easy to work with & very responsive to emails. The trip went flawlessly. We used Expert Africa to organize a trip to Zambia/Malawi for us 2 yrs ago & will be asking them to help us with a possible trip to Namibia next year!

Flawless

On this trip, I visited Malawi & Zambia between 4-Jul-2015 and 17-Jul-2015 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Claire was amazing to work with. She was very responsive to my emails despite being on a different continent & was also available for calls to answer my questions. I felt like she really listened to what we wanted & provided her honest opinion on some of my suggestions & also gave us the pros & cons of various itineraries or lodges & as a result, she put together the perfect trip for us.

Our trip was everything we expected...and more. This trip was for my husband's 40th birthday & she must have let all the lodges know because they all did something special for him. It really made the whole experience extra special for him.

Our entire trip was flawless - from the pickup at Livingstone airport to drop off at Likoma's tiny airport for our journey back to the States. Thank you so much, Claire & Expert Africa, for putting together a trip we will remember forever.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

We have zero criticism or constructive feedback - everything was flawless from beginning to end!
