Vic Falls, Hwange and Motobos Sept 19

On this trip, I visited Zimbabwe between 18-Sep-2019 and 1-Oct-2019 and I travelled with 4 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Truly a holiday of a lifetime. Excellent programme put together by Freddie Sutton and Tom Morris, with a range of experiences from colonial splendour in the Vic Falls Hotel, to the ultimate bush camp experience at Hwange Bush Camp and the startling architectural wonder in a stunning location at Amalinda in the Motobos.

Expert Africa are very much the experts - highly recommended.

Holiday of a lifetime

On this trip, I visited Malawi & Zambia between 5-Sep-2016 and 18-Sep-2016 and I travelled with 5 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Expert Africa is truly expert and the organisation was exemplary. Everything ran like clockwork with no glitches and the attention to detail was astounding - at no time were we left unsupported throughout the entire booking process and the trip itself.

We were also very impressed with Robin Pope Safaris - each of their lodges was very different tin feel but shared the same ethos and attention to detail. The guiding was particularly good in all the camps.
