Travel reviews by Linda & Paul from UK


An extremely well organised itinerary

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 22-Apr-2018 and 4-May-2018 and I travelled with 9 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Nothing was too much trouble for Sabina in researching and planning this itinerary for a party of 10 photographers. All the arrangements worked very smoothly throughout the trip.

The whole African Experience was greatly enhanced by the quality of the locations where we stayed and the stunning lodges and camps.

Thank you so much - your efforts and knowledge have been greatly appreciated.

An outstanding and very well organised trip

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 21-Apr-2018 and 20-May-2018 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

All the arrangements made by Expert Africa went very smoothly and without a single hitch. Most of the accommodation and the friendliness of the service proved to be of a very high standard indeed (most notably Bagatelle Kalahari, Nest Hotel, Wolwedans, Ongava and Mushara lodges). The only locations where the standard was less than satisfactory were Central Lodge and particularly Olive Grove in Klein Windhoek.

The maps and guide books provided prior to the trip were invaluable and very comprehensive.

Although not organised through you, the flights with South African Airlines proved to be very comfortable indeed with plenty of leg room.
