My Jul 2015 trip

On this trip, I visited Botswana, Namibia & Zimbabwe between 27-Jul-2015 and 19-Aug-2015 and I travelled with 5 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:


Expert Africa were amazing. They spend a lot of time with me shaping the trip and advising me of the accommodation options. I found their recommendations spot on and the accommodation they booked was superb with a very individual and varied feel. The majority of the accommodation had a very personalised feel.

Sabina is worthy of particular mention, as she really knew Namibia well and so was able to give accurate and re-assuring advice. She was always courteous and nothing was too much trouble. Expert Africa give superb attention to detail and provide lots of useful information before the trip, which ensures the trip goes smoothly. Any issues, which were limited during or after the trip were dealt with very quickly and efficiently.

I would recommend Expert Africa without reservation.

The website is also very helpful when researching your trip.
