A very enjoyable trip to Tanzania

On this trip, I visited Tanzania & Zanzibar between 31-Aug-2019 and 15-Sep-2019 and I travelled with 4 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

This trip to Tanzania for a safari followed by time relaxing on Zanzibar, was a long-planned trip for my brother and I, and our wives. My wife and I had previous experience of safaris, but my brother did not, so I felt the pressure of "getting it right". We decided to plan it with Expert Africa following a previous very successful trip planned with their help, and I am delighted we made that decision. A meeting with Expert Africa's Olivia helped her to perfectly judge our requirements, and the result was a highly successful holiday that exceeded all our expectations.

My Sep 2015 trip

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 9-Sep-2015 and 4-Oct-2015 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

We returned from our trip saying that we would have done nothing differently, which is rare.

I suspect this is because of our discussions with Expert Africa staff who took the time to find out exactly what we wanted, and then planned the trip accordingly.

I cannot speak highly enough about the planning and organisation which had obviously gone into this trip. Thank you again Martha.
