Excellent honeymoon from Expert Africa

Botswana and 2 other countries between 28 Oct 2007 and 13 Nov 2007

Trip rating: Excellent
"We were very happy with our honeymoon from Expert Africa. All the tinest details were attended to so that when we arrived in africa everyone knew where we were going and when to meet us/when our flights would be there extra. We enjoyed all of it.

From the first monent we spoke to Expert Africa we were made to feel that nothing was too much trouble and our requests were listened to - plus the advice we were given was excellent. It was welcoming to know that when we went to Linyanti camp someone from Expert Africa had also visited and had written very positive comments in the guest book!

Our only negative was that Bazzaruto Lodge had not been our first choice and that it was in fact the 3rd - but this was simply due to the cyclone earlier in the year and the booking availability. Other hotels were supposed to be closed however when in MZB we realised that some were open and wished we had re-considerd to make sure we were at the best option prior to coming - reason being we would have loved spa facilties for a 5 day relax but this was not meant to be."

Sindabezi

Sindabezi

"Great start to our honeymoon at Sindabezi"

2 nights Arrived 29 Oct 2007
"We loved the welcome we received at Sindabezi. They were so helpful in providing t-shirts and toiletries when our bags didn't arrive with us - proof of their excellent service.

The guides were knowledgeable and the chefs were excellent.

We do not believe it was part of the planned package but we were upgraded to the Bird House at Tongabezi for our second night - such a great spoil including Forbes our personal valet. Highly recommend a stay here!"

Linyanti Bush Camp

Linyanti Bush Camp

"Great Safari at Linyanti"

3 nights Arrived 31 Oct 2007
"The guides at Linyanti were excellent. They were very knowledgeable and really enthusiastic to search out the game. The game at Linyanti is harder to spot and takes more patience (compared with somewhere like Shinde where we went next), however the ability to source the lion and also the lionness eating her buffalo kill was purely down to the expert skills of our guides, as opposed to using the radio.

The managers (inlcuding the new managers) were equally friendly and keen to hear about your game drives when you returned. Before the holiday we were concerned about what food might be provided on safari - we need not have worried at all - the food at Linyanti was lovely and lots of it!"

Shinde Camp

Shinde Camp

"Shinde"

3 nights Arrived 3 Nov 2007
"Shinde is a well established camp and thus the game seemed more tame! Whislt this means getting very close to them (which was great!) however seemed all too easy to come across the animals compared with our time at Linyanti.

The guides, whilst have the most amazing spotting skills, lacked enthusiasm that we had seen in our earlier camp... The food at Shinde was good but felt the dining setting was a little too formal. We loved the fact there was a pool which meant we could relax in the afternoon between game drives - although it did lack sunloungers and towels for the numbers that wanted to use it.

Shinde excelled in offering a number of different type of activities - mokoros, motoboat trips, walking safaris. The champagne and cheese platter we received as a honeymoon treat was a lovely touch."

Bazaruto Lodge

Bazaruto Lodge

"5 relaxing days at Bazaruto lodge"

5 nights Arrived 7 Nov 2007
"A lovely 5 days were spent relaxing at Bazaruto. It has a very laid back nature and we were left to enjoy ourselves. We would have preferred more information on the trips available.

We wish there had been spa facilities but realise that due to issue of the cyclone earlier in the year this ended up being our 3rd choice hotel.

Rooms were kept clean and the service we received was good. We loved our private breakfast and also the dinner outside our room together with our own camp fire - thanks to the honeymoon package."
