Travel reviews by Ms R from London


Brilliant!

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 1-Aug-2016 and 15-Aug-2016 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Outstanding - memorable, everything organised to the finest detail and that's why we'll happily use you again.

Liz was extremely helpful, and went beyond the call of duty to answer inane questions so that our trip was as enjoyable as it possibly could have been. The car hire was seamless, as were the flights, and every single one of our accommodations was excellent. No surprises at all!

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

All was outstanding - thank you Liz and the team for another memorable trip.

Memorable and exactly what we wanted

On this trip, I visited Botswana & Zambia between 22-May-2015 and 31-May-2015 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Thank you Expert Africa. Logistically it was perfect with zero hiccups and we realise that there could've been many. You certainly get what you pay for and it was a trip of a lifetime.

The safaris, food, ambience and accommodation - all absolutely spot on and thank you so much for the help in organising everything for us. We will definitely be back in Africa over the next year or so, and when we plan it we'll be in contact. Thank you Chloe for being someone who knew the countries we were visiting inside out - so often you do the research yourself, then speak to someone at a company who then knows less than you do. This certainly wasn't the case here!

We have some fantastic wildlife (especially bird photos) from the holiday (taken with professional Canon lenses) so if you want any for the website/future Bradt travel guides please let us know.

No, not at all. However, as Richard is a birdwatcher (and bordering on OCD keen) he did spot a mistake in the Bradt travel guide that you could pass on! The Spoonbill photograph is actually an African Spoonbill (Platalea alba) and not Spoonbill (Platalea leucorodia) as per the book!
