Travel reviews by Mr & Mrs C from Chicago

An extraordinary and fantastic adventure!

On this trip, I visited Rwanda & Zambia between 12-Aug-2016 and 27-Aug-2016 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


This trip was truly awesome. We loved every minute of every part of it.

The opportunity to stand face-to-face with a family of gorillas in the middle of the jungle in Rwanda is other worldly – straight out of a movie (literally!) and I couldn't recommend more highly.

Same goes for the Sausage Tree camp in Zambia. Wow what a fabulous place! Having our own guide is key, and their facilities are top, top notch – from the rooms to the main lodge to the cars and boats they use, all of which makes a difference in making the experience truly extraordinary.

Expert Africa did a terrific job setting everything up for us – we had nothing to worry about at any point of the trip. Thanks!
