Travel reviews by Family B from New York

Experience of a lifetime!

On this trip, I visited Botswana, Namibia & Zimbabwe between 22-May-2016 and 4-Jun-2016 and I travelled with 4 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:


We had attempted to book a two way stay with a car hire for a good part of it, and the first few either refused or discouraged that idea even though our daughter is serving for two years in Botswana. Maruska was a pleasure to deal with, encouraged and supported what we wanted to do, and pulled together a seamless trip from start to finish.

The transfers by Wild Horizons were spot on and she worked to find the exact vehicle we wanted. All of our accommodation bookings were perfect. The only wrinkle we experienced was the car hire company who claimed they never received a voucher they needed and tried yo charge our card a 1000 deposit, requiring several calls to expertafrica to clear the issue up
